The original term futon (derived from the Orient hundreds of years ago) means cotton mattress. Basic and natural in its initial design, futons are dual purpose and versatile (sofa by day; bed by night), perfect for the health conscious alternative sleep individuals (and all us slackers too!). Over the years we have found that 100% cotton futons tend to pack down and become extremely firm and heavy, so we began to incorporate foam to the mix to eliminate this tendency. Then we added polyester to add more softness. Eventually our engineers removed all traces of cotton and used only high-density foam and polyester; that created the "Cotton-less" futon craze! Known as innovators in the industry, Otis Bed utilized its knowledge in the medical industry along with the latest advances in technology to manufacture our signature line of high performance cushion and sleep systems.

Key Value Messages for Otis Futons
To supply a cushioning product that is of outstanding overall value, which results in the end user being willing to refer Otis Bed to others. The aim for our mattresses is simple. To be as COMFORTABLE as they are DURABLE.
Comfortable - to be as comfy, if not more so than traditional upholstered sofas when being used as a couch. Also, to be flexible and conformable so as not to cause painful, unhealthy pressure points *(which affect circulation to joints and surrounding tissue) for the occasional or every night sleeper. "As a supplier of pressure management therapy mattresses to the health care industry, we feel uniquely qualified to present mattress constructions with these claims."
Durable - While nothing lasts forever, this futon mattress is engineered to keep its shape and resist change in firmness on the edge and other critical sitting and sleeping areas better than any cotton based futon mattress construction. More resilient top quality cushioning materials.
The value of a cushioning material's ability to maintain its initial characteristics is best illustrated when compared to an automobile tire. Cushioning material with a low ability to maintain its supportive nature can be likened to a tire that goes flat and cannot be reinflated. A tire with its characteristic would be of little or no value except one whose needs were very temporary.
