The Mammoth Sport mattress was invented in 2007 when sport enthusiast and keen rugby player, John Tuton, suffered an injury during a game.
Battered and bruised, John found it difficult to find a comfortable solution to help him sleep at night. Knowing how important sleep was to recovery, he started his journey to design and make his own solution.
John started looking at various comfort products available on the market. He tried memory foam but found it too hot. He tried toppers but they didn’t offer enough support. He decided to seek inspiration from the industry in which he was working – health care.
His Health care origins
At the time of his injury, John was working in health care, advising on and supplying pressure relieving beds and seating to the NHS and Private hospitals.
Using his knowledge and experience, he looked at the best materials available for recovery, trying samples on his own bed base.
his bigger picture
Medical Grade Foam was born. He asked himself why only the chronically sick shouldhave access to this level of pressure relief in a mattress, John knew it was too good a product to keep to himself and decided to make it available to the public in the form of the Mammoth Sport Mattress.
Sleep – The foundation for being well
Mammoth Sport is for those who choose fitness and wellbeing. We know sleep is the absolute foundation for being well. We believe that our health and wellbeing should be prized possessions.
Why Medical Grade™ Foam? Mammoth’s own innovation, Medical Grade™ Foam is not memory foam. It superseded memory foam in health care more than 10 years ago, as it does not retain heat.
Rigorously tested under laboratory conditions at the University of Northumbria (2012), Mammoth’s Medical Grade™ Foam mattresses are scientifically shown to improve sleep. All Mammoth mattresses feature this modern aid, an innovation that tailors comfort and support for every sleeper. Not too hard, not too soft – just right. Mammoth mattresses respond instantly to the shape and size of every person, relieving pressure on sore muscles, while improving circulation.
State-of-the-art PostureCells™ move independently, absorbing motion to ensure ease of movement through the night, helping to avoid unwanted awakenings normally caused by a restless partner.
Through the magic of Medical Grade™ Foam and carefully selected modern fabrics, the Mammoth range is specially designed to keep sleepers cool and comfortable, also ideal for those who can sometimes overheat in the night. Not too hot, not too cold – just right.
A new level of comfort
Originally designed to improve the performance and wellbeing of Olympians and elite athletes, today Mammoth is here to give everyone the opportunity to be the best version of themselves, by waking up on the right side of a modern bed, every morning.
