The Emma Sleep Zero Gravity Mattress has been named the most innovative bedding product of 2023.

If you're struggling to decide which mattress to buy, the results from this year's Finder Innovation Awards might be able to offer a few insights.

Since 2016, the Finder Innovation Awards have been recognising the most groundbreaking products and services in Australia.

Each entry is judged on a range of criteria, including innovation, features and industry impact.

In the Best Retail Product Innovation category, Emma Sleep's Zero Gravity Mattress placed second overall.

This is the best result from a mattress brand in the history of the awards.

The Zero Gravity's main claim to fame is the use of 6 mattress layers that provide additional coolness and comfort.

The AirGrid layer reacts naturally to pressure in ways other foams do not. This helps to maximise support regardless of the user's preferred sleeping position.

All of these factors contributed to the mattress taking out Finder's Highly Commended award for retail product innovation.

In addition to its Highly Commended win, the Emma Sleep Zero Gravity Mattress has also been crowned the Best Premium Mattress-in-a-Box by Finder's testing team.

"This mattress moulds with your movements so quickly it feels like you're always comfortably supported," remarked reviewer Chris Stead.

"What you're really paying for here is memory foam conformity and good heat regulation. That is where the Emma finds its sweet spot, making it a good fit for those who sleep hot or live in warm climates."
