The ortho mattresses, which are made from high-tech foam and are used in medical facilities for treating a range of conditions, are making a comeback after being sidelined for a few years due to cost overruns.
According to an article by CNN, the ortho brand Ortho is “making good on a deal” with US-based mattress manufacturer Bedrocks to offer its products in the U.S. for $49.99 a month.
The company, which has a market cap of more than $1.8 billion, is seeking a partner to sell its products.
Bedrocks did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
The company was forced to shut down its production of the orthowel mattress last year, after its manufacturer, Cabela’s, had difficulty sourcing enough orthowels for its new ortho bed.
According, Bedroks said its supply chain was not “strong enough to meet demand,” leading to a shortage of orthowelt for hospitals.
A spokesman for Cabelas said the company was still in discussions with Bedrock to ensure that the mattress was available to hospitals.
The orthowell mattress, which was first released in 2005, was designed to reduce pain and improve circulation.
It can also help relieve some of the more common bed-related complaints.
“The orthogel is a high-quality mattress that is designed to provide the patient with a better quality of life,” the company said in a statement.
