The Rem-Fit 500 mattress is a new mattresses designed by the makers of the Rem Fit sleep tracker and Zeek Smart pillow. It continues their offering of products focused on people that live active lifestyles and want to maximize their recovery. This mattress feels mostly like a memory foam mattress but it actually has coils inside that give it some extra bounce and support.
Rem-Fit also makes other models which are as follows:
Sleep 200 8 inch memory foam mattress $499-$799
Sleep 300 10 inch cooling gel memory foam mattress 599.99-1099.99
Sleep 400 12 inch cooling gel memory foam mattress $749.00-1299.99
Sleep 400 12 inch hybrid pocket coil and cooling memory foam mattress $749-1299.99
Overview of the Rem-Fit 500
You can order this mattress direct from the Rem-Fit website. After placing your order it takes about a week for the mattress to arrive. The mattress will come in a box like the one below. I received a queen size and this box is wider than most queen sizes I have received. I think this because it has a spring system and lots of foam measuring 12 inches.
Below is a picture of what it looks like out of the box. I took this picture about 10 minutes after unboxing.

My Rem Fit 500 Findings
Below is a video showing how each layer of the mattress reacts. You can see that the spring system is encased with a foam perimiter.
Here’s a picture of the spring system on the inside of the mattress
Here’s a video showing how much bounce you get out of the mattress. Despite having a coil system it does a great job of absorbing motion:
This mattress has phase change material in the ticking as well as cooling gel foam underneath that. Here’s a video taken with my infrared camera to illiustrate heat dissipation. I had this mattress out on display on our online mattress showroom in Minneapolis and visitors frequently commented on how cool it felt. That’s due to the generous amount of phase change material on the cover.
Finally, I found this mattress to have a bit more sink than most of the hybrid mattresses I have tried. The cover is not quilted so it’s easy to see how my bowling ball actually sinks into the mattress.
My Rem Fit 500 Recommendation
The Rem Fit 500 will appeal to people looking for a softer mattress that you can sink into but will also recover relatively quickly given the amount of foam used and the density of the foam. You really don’t feel the pockect coils at all and I was suprised that they were even in there. The pocket coils allow the bed to sink in more but still give you good support.
I think this mattress would not only appeal to athletes with sore muscles and bodies but anyone looking for an all foam mattress feel with quicker recovery and limited motion transfer.
