"is the cover fluid resistant?"
I've now bought 8 of these mattresses (6 regular, 2 premium) to make King Sized foam beds (just put 2 of these twin-sized beauties together and top them with a 4" memory foam topper, which I've also bought from Overstock). The non-premium version of this mattress works just fine this way, but I wanted to spoil myself with 2 premium mattresses (its slightly thicker and gives you a firmer feel, but I doubt most would notice, so probably going premium is not worth the cost spread). The beauty of these "home-made" beds is that if you catch an overflow crowd of guests you can break each bed apart and make 3 beds out of each bed (each mattress is a twin bed, and you can fold the mattress topper over and make a quick-bed out of that, like for a kid). I had a guy build me king-sized platforms for each bed (hence, a platform bed!), by the way, and I've got plenty of storage space under each one. Finally, if little kids visit and wet the bed, no problem -- these are "hospital" mattresses, after all, and designed for it. Ventilation hint: Put a wool blanket on top of the 4" topper and underneath the mattress pad. It will wick away body moisture and keep you warm in the winter, cool in the summer. Just get a used army blanket or something (hey, it's going UNDER the mattress pad, remember?), because wool blankets ain't cheap. And dont let little kids who pee sleep on wooled beds, of course....

I have had a vibrating, movable position, electric bed in my living room since the middle of the 1980s. I desperately need it because of a combination of spinal problems due to genetics, as well as to a car accident in 1999 that severely injured soft tissues in my back and another disc in my spine. I could not afford to buy a new bed, although my bed's mattress had been worn out and lumpy for years. I accidentally discovered the Home Healthcare Mattress, I ordered it, and I replaced my old mattress with it. No more pillows, etc. and I now can read, watch DVDs. etc. in my living room comfortably! Even the thinner 3 in. mattress is thick enough not only to be comfortable, but also to cushion and to support the painful areas of my body, helping greatly to relieve my pain! I was so happy with the 3 inch Home Healthcare Mattress that I ordered the 4 inch Premium Healthcare Mattress as a backup because I was afraid that I would never again find such good mattresses for such excellent prices to fit my elecric bed. Since the two mattresses are made by the same company, I have no doubt at all that the Premium Home Healthcare Mattress will be, if anything, even more comfortable because of its extra inch of thickness. I have two Memory Foam mattress toppers on my bedroom bed, a 3 in. one and a 4 in. one for a total of 7 in. , and my sleep has been so much better because of the way that the Memory Foam adjusts to and cushions my body. I very rarely wake up in pain anymore. I highly recommend this Premium Homecare Mattress for anyone who must spend time in a hospital style bed because of these mattresses' comfortable support. If I had to do it over again, I would have bought two of the Premium Home Healthcare mattresses because of the extra inch of thickness, but I am very happy with the two mattresses that I have!Read More
My mother purchased an adjustable bed several years ago and the mattress was completely worn out. A friend suggested I check with Overstock.Com to see if they might have a replacement. I read a review of the mattress in which the lady stated she used it on an adjustable bed and it worked really well, so I decided to give it a try. I was concerned when it arrived because it was in such a small box and I knew the mattress was supposed to be 7" thick, but when I opened it, the instructions said it had been compressed and would regain its shape in a few hours. And it DID! Mom says it gets more comfortable every day and it works great with her bed. She loves the fact that it's lighweight and she can easily move it when needed. I was especially pleased with the low cost of the freight and with the promptness of delivery.Read More
This was a replacement for an interspring homecare mattress. This product is exactly as described!!! Extremely comfortable & supportive mattress! Highly recommend ! Excellent Value!Read More
More comfortable than you can imagine. The mattress expands and is the thickness of a regular mattress but is MUCH more comfortable. Memory foam is the best! A great deal too!Read More

My Mom is 101 years old. The mattress that came with her hospital was not very comfortable. It was very thin. This mattress is much more comfortable for her.Read More
I should have read the fine print, I know, but who expects a mattress to be 4 inches smaller in width than a standard twin mattress???? I bought this to go on our Eastern King bed which is two adjustable XL twin beds side-by-side - one side has a tempurpedic mattress and the other side had an innerspring mattress. We have had to fill the gap with a large piece of foam which is really a pain. I will have to purchase a larger (standard) mattress soon.As far as comfort, it is more comfortable than the innerspring mattress we were sleeping on, but not nearly as comfy as our tempurpedic mattress. I'm 'okay' with it, but my husband, who has a very bad back, can really tell the difference in his pain level and so I have had to switch with him so he can have the 'real thing', while I have this one on my bed. So, if you are purchasing this for back issues, you might want to spring for one of the more expensive mattresses.Read More
I purchased this mattress for my husband who is disabled. We allowed it to expand for 3 days, didn't notice any odor or unpleasant smells. We put it on his bed over his boxsprings and removed his old mattress. I like the fact that this mattress has a cover on it that can be wiped down. My husband thinks it is great and says he is sleeping much better now.Read More
My aunt sleeps in a hospital bed by choice. The mattress on the bed was awful. She had a backache all the time. I saw your mattress and ask my aunt if she would like to have it. She loves it. The price was incredibly cheap. Today if you buy anything that says "homecare or hospital" it is automatically expensive. I would recommend this to anyone who sleeps in a hospital bed.Read More
