Sleep Posture Mattress for back pain & more

Back pain is the worst, as is getting a poor sleep at night. Our clinically researched mattress for back pain is here to solve both of these problems.

Our founder James has spent a great chunk of his life helping people with postural care. What he has learnt along the way, is that good posture, one that makes back pain a thing of the past, is strongly connected to how we sleep. Specifically, what we sleep on.

We spend a third of our lives in bed. Why would you not want your mattress to go the extra mile for you?

The Levitex foam mattress works by assisting your sleep posture, therefore eliminating back pain, as you rest.

So what’s in a Levitex Mattress?


A Levitex Mattress consists of only one layer. A 20cm layer consisting solely of Levitex Foam. A foam designed, researched and engineered to support the best sleep postures. Soft like traditional foam in order to provide comfort and pressure relief, yet with a firm like spring quality to ensure amazing postural support.

The optimum mattress for back pain and sleep posture

Reduce pain and help your posture as you sleep

We don’t want to experience pains and wiggles, and we have learnt that the key to getting rid of them is optimising your sleep posture.

When we try to maintain a good posture, we are continuously fighting against gravity.  If your body sinks into your mattress, you cannot control your posture. It is really as simple as that.

Optimising your posture at night allows you to fight gravity and maintain a good spinal alignment.

Using a Levitex® Mattress will…

Improve your sleep posture

Reduce your lower back pain

Improve your digestion and circulation

Boost your energy levels

Lessen the tension in your neck and shoulders

Increase your lung capacity

Improve your core strength


Is all of this achievable by simply switching to our mattress for back pain? Yes, yes, it is.

For perfect posture and the elimination of back pain

What makes our mattress so special?

Levitex® Foam: an innovation in helping back pain

We have taken five years to make sure we get our revolutionary foam right. Tirelessly, we have consulted postural care specialists, pain medicine professionals, physios, professional athletes and office workers. Our goal was simple: to create something both as soft as memory foam, and as firm as a sprung mattress.

We knew we had succeeded when we got our first Levitex foam prototype. The way that the foam works is that at 25% compression (light squeeze), the softness takes all the pressure off your body. However, at 65% compression (firm squeeze) the firmness supports your body and maintains your posture.

Regardless of your previous sleep habits, the time to start improving your sleep posture and reducing your back pain is now.

Who are we?

Posture Experts, on a mission to educate the world about the importance of nighttime posture and to give people the tools to improve it.

Our founder, James Leinhardt, has spent 10+ years helping the critically injured, the chronically ill, and the infirm patients. He spotted a key gap in the way we think about posture: there is no consideration for how to manage it at night.

James took his idea to Dr Ilan Lieberman, a Pain Medicine Consultant and Clinician, and that’s how Levitex was born.

💤 Which is the best mattress for back pain?

To help get rid of your back pain as you sleep, choose a mattress that helps you maintain a correct sleep posture at night. The best mattress for back pain will be approved by posture specialists, firm enough to not allow you to sink into it, yet soft enough to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep.

💤 How do I prevent waking up with back pain?

To prevent waking up with back pain, ensure that you maintain a good posture during the day, and sleep on a mattress that helps you optimise your sleeping position during the night, too.

💤 What sleeping position is best for neck pain?

When choosing a mattress to help your back pain, ensure that the material it is made of is clinically researched to reduce pressure on your body, as this is one of the main causes of back pain. The best mattress for back pain will not be too soft or too firm either – but rather somewhere exactly in between. However, it is not recommended that you choose a memory foam mattress, as while these are great for redistributing pressure, they also mould to your body and solidify bad sleep posture habits

💤 Can your mattress impact how your back feels in the morning?

Yes, the mattress that you sleep on will be one of the biggest factors in whether you wake up with back pain. Aim to choose a mattress that is specifically made to help ease back pain if you suffer from it. However, even if you do not suffer from back pain, choosing a mattress that is made to aid it, will help you prevent back pain in the future.

💤 Is memory foam good for back pain?

No, as the name indicates, memory foam will memorise the position in which you sleep. If this position is bad for your back (which is likely if you have back pain), then you will find yourself stuck in a cycle of being unable to improve it.
