The idoshape sensormat can be used in retail environments to evaluate the fit between a customer and a specific sleep system. By comparing consecutive measurements on different sleep systems, the best fit can be determined for this customer. Ideally the comparison is made based on a detailed measurement of the customer profile.
Another version of the software starts from a fixed setup (in which the idoshape is built into a reference bed). The software starts from a measurement of the customer or from a basic questionnaire, and uses the indentation measurements in different positions to provide an advice over a mattress range.
Finally, the reference bed could also be a simulation bed. This would allow the user to experience the difference in support while receiving visual feedback and objective scores.
