Our Australian made special needs mattresses are designed to provide comfort and protection from accidents that can occur. Living with Down Syndrome

Caring for people with special needs includes ensuring they have a good sleep routine.

To ensure proper care, people with special needs may require a variety of adjustments to their sleeping arrangements and lifestyles to make things easier and more comfortable. Our mattresses are designed to cater to those who struggle with bedwetting and incontinence.

If a BedGuard mattress does get soiled, cleaning can be done quickly and easily to alleviate stress from carers and families.

Living with special needs

Child with disability

Children and adults with special needs sometimes have issues with sleeping which can affect their mood and well-being during the day. With lots of challenges to tackle each day, a good sleep on a comfortable and reliable mattress is important.

Kids with special needs can experience bedtime and sleep as a difficult process, with issues falling asleep, staying asleep or experiencing respiratory problems while sleeping. BedGuard mattresses offer a real solution for a range of people with special needs, for example, people with autism or ADHD bedwetting.

A Better Sleep Mattress

Fortunately, if someone you care about is experiencing problems with their sleep, there are ways to help alleviate some of the issues. Generally, sleep problems can be caused by heightened sensitivities, such as:


Some children have food allergies that cause sleep interruption. If your child has a food allergy, they may alert you to feeling itchy, experiencing limb soreness and/or incontinence. They may also behave destructively. 

BedGuard mattresses' unique dual mattress protection system means your mattress is fully protected against allergy causing elements, bedbugs, dust mites and more.


Sleeping in a room that is too cold or too hot can cause anyone’s sleep to be disturbed. Maintaining a comfortable sleeping temperature can be a big help for people experiencing sleep problems including bedwetting.


Ordinary or loud noises may make it hard for your child to sleep. BedGuard mattresses are designed to keep noise down and provide the most comfortable, dry, supportive bedding which will aid with relaxation and peaceful sleep.

The Ideal Mattress For Complex Needs

Sometimes it’s hard to find out exactly what the problem is that is affecting your child’s sleeping habits. Correcting bad sleep may involve an all-encompassing solution, as it may be impossible to find a single cause.

The idea behind our range of BedGuard mattresses is to combine impressive features and benefits to provide complete bedding protection. BedGuard mattresses help take the worry out of a carer's life, helping to ensure the peace of mind around mattress protection for your special needs adult or child.

BedGuard mattresses are long lasting and affordable, and are made specifically for health, comfort, safety and well-being. Our mattresses are spill and waterproof, designed for the toughest of circumstances.
