The Back Sense Elite line is where you start when looking for a mattress genuinely made for adult support. Hickory Springs' InnerACT spring combined with a robust foam-encasement system provides support and stability while the high-quality foam upholstery in the Potomac Cushion Firm ensures the second firmest bed in the Back Sense Elite collection will give you comfort and support for years to come.

A cushion firm in the truest sense of the word, the Potomac Cushion Firm is an excellent choice for stomach sleepers and many side sleepers alike, many of whom will appreciate the cradling effect the durable upholstery layers provide while still not allowing you sag too far into the bed. Side sleepers and someone more sensitive to pressure points may want to look at an option with more cushioning layers on the top, such as the Potomac Cushion Firm, Mystic Cloud Plush or Pillowtop, Stearns & Foster Oak Terrace Pillowtop or most beds in the Tempur-Pedic collection.

A unique feature of Therapedic's Back Sense Elite collection not found in most mattresses today is the double border rod in the spring system which dramatically increases stability and durability around the seating surface of the bed.


The Therapedic Back Sense Elite Firm utilizes the InnerACT spring unit from Hickory Springs Manufacturing.

  • Open-coil and alternating left/right design is stable throughout
