  • Patent number: 10448748
    Abstract: A mechanism for securing a mattress on a bed foundation is provided. More particularly, the invention relates to a folding mattress-retention mechanism that may compactly fold or be easily removed during shipping or storage. The folding mattress-retention mechanism includes a mattress-support structure, a first hinged attachment, and a second hinged attachment. The mattress-support structure includes a first and second end and may abut a side of a mattress atop a bed foundation. The first and second hinged attachments are coupled to the mattress-support structure at the respective first and second ends and may either affix or removably attach the folding mattress-retention mechanism to the foot, head, or sides of a bed foundation. Further, the hinged attachments may allow for movement, and the folding mattress-retention mechanism may move into and between an operable first position and a stowed second position.

  • Publication number: 20190290012
    Abstract: A mattress-retention system is provided that maintains a mattress in place on an adjustable bed base. The base has a decking with sections that articulate to move the mattress into any of a variety of support positions. The decking is typically covered with a fabric. A pattern of micro-hook strips is coupled to the fabric, facing outwardly towards the mattress. The pattern of micro-hook strips may be contained within only one section, but may also be contained in other sections, or may cross-over multiple sections. This pattern of micro-hook strips interacts with the mattress to retain it in place.

  • Patent number: 9930970
    Abstract: An adjustable bed is provided. The adjustable bed can include an outer support perimeter that provides structural support to various components of the adjustable bed. The outer support perimeter can include a plurality of panels, where two panels can be coupled together by a panel connecting member which can be received inside a void of both panels. The panel connecting member can be secured to the two panels using one or more fasteners in such a manner that the fasteners are not visible on the outside surface of the outer support perimeter. The adjustable bed can include a storage compartment positioned beneath a foot segment of a mattress support member. The storage compartment can be accessed by pivoting the foot segment of the mattress support member up and away from the adjustable bed.

  • Patent number: 7530125
    Abstract: An adjustable bed includes a stationary base having side rails with channels. A frame movable relative to the base has rollers which ride in these channels. An articulated deck comprising head, seat, leg and foot deck boards hingedly joined together is supported by the frame when horizontal. A plurality of links pivotally secured to brackets secured to the head and leg deck boards and pivotally secured to the base limit travel of the head and leg deck boards. Additional links pivotally secured to brackets secured to the foot deck board and to the movable frame limit movement of the foot deck board. An actuator assembly is operatively coupled to the frame and includes a linear actuator. Activation of the actuator inclines the deck boards.
