Set up test

The KAYA Sleep mattress took us a minute and 17 seconds to set up. The KAYA Sleep didn’t have a noticeable odor or any difficult packaging to deal with; however, it did take a few hours to take its full shape.  

So for our setup test, KAYA gets a 9 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

According to RJ and Asha, the KAYA Sleep wasn’t the best at isolating motion. They both agreed that they were a little disturbed by their partner’s movements. So they gave it a collective score of 7.25.

Part B - The Wine

While there was a little wobble to the wine, overall it stayed pretty still. So we gave it an 8.5.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave KAYA a 7.9 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

The KAYA Sleep scored an 8.5 for the edge shoe test. RJ and Asha both felt pretty stable while putting on their kicks.

Part B - The Side Test

Once again, RJ and Asha found it safe to stretch out on the side of the KAYA Sleep. For the edge support side test, they gave it a collective score of 8.5.

So KAYA gets a 8.5 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw a lot of warm tones in RJ’s shoulders – So we gave him a 6.5 for pressure relief.

We saw a lot of warm tones in RJ’s shoulders so we gave him a 6.5 for pressure relief.

So for a total pressure relief score, KAYA gets a 7 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

The KAYA Sleep did a phenomenal job of keeping both RJ and Asha’s spines in alignment.

For spine alignment, KAYA gets a 9 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

Let’s face it, you want your significant other to always listen and respond to your emotions, don’t you? Well you want your mattress to do the same thing with your body movements.

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

The KAYA Sleep mattress knows how to listen to you!

So KAYA gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.
