MySleepScan. My Mattress. My Size

The MySleepScan programme is Kayfoam’s patented mattress matching programme. The Scan technology creates a 3D body profile to generate data on the consumer body shape, size and spinal posture. Using this data, our system applies an algorithm that identifies the perfect mattress properties to meet the consumer needs.

The MySleepScan programme was introduced to China in 2014 and is now deployed in hundreds of stores. The programme helped differentiate one of China’s leading retail bedding operations. The programme was responsible for an uplift in consumer traffic, conversions and an increased sales turnover.

The programme was devised by Dr Duncan Bain, a pre-eminent UK based bio-mechanical engineer, who has extensive history with the UK NHS, National Health Service, in the development of medical mattress protocols
