Emma ACT Hybrid Mattress
The Emma ACT Hybrid Mattress has a top comfort layer of polyfoam that features Emma Sleep’s Active Cooling Technology (ACT). This technology integrates graphite particles into the polyfoam, which is intended to dissipate excess body heat. A layer of memory foam beneath provides additional pressure relief.
Within the core, over 300 pocketed coils adjust to each part of the body for breathable, dynamic support. A final layer of polyfoam supports and stabilizes the mattress. Firm polyfoam also wraps around the perimeter of the spring system to reinforce the edge. Every layer of the Emma ACT Hybrid meets OEKO-TEX Standard 100 guidelines related to harmful substances.
The lower portion of the cover uses a polyester-polypropylene blend. Meanwhile, the upper cover features a soft, stretchy, breathable combination of polyester, lyocell, and elastane. This top portion is also removable and washable for easy cleaning. Altogether, the Emma ACT Hybrid’s layers total 11 inches thick and deliver a medium firm (6) feel. This construction strikes a good balance between contouring, support, and breathability for most sleepers.
The 11-inch Emma ACT Hybrid features a breathable cover and polyfoam comfort system designed for cooling. A support core of pocketed coils and dense polyfoam balances the plushness of the upper layers for a medium firm (6) feel.

The pricing of the Emma ACT Hybrid falls in the mid-range for a hybrid mattress. Mattress prices can vary greatly depending on the size, materials, and construction. Hybrid models tend to carry higher price tags than innerspring or all-foam models due to their complex constructions and quality materials.
The Emma ACT Hybrid Mattress is available in all standard mattress sizes, including twin XL and California king.
|Twin||38" x 75"||11"||34 lbs.||$1,349|
|Twin XL||38"x 80"||11"||46 lbs.||$1,449|
|Full||54" x 75"||11"||52 lbs.||$1,549|

The Emma Act Hybrid’s poly and memory foam comfort system and medium firm feel create a comfortable sleep surface for most side sleepers. Side sleepers tend to place a great deal of pressure on their hips and shoulders. The Emma ACT Hybrid’s comfort system contours and cushions these pressure points to limit discomfort. Moreover, the Emma ACT Hybrid’s coil core prevents the hips and shoulders from sinking too deeply, thereby promoting proper spinal alignment for side sleepers.
Our testers who sleep on their sides and weigh between 130 and 230 pounds found the Emma ACT Hybrid especially comfortable. The Emma ACT Hybrid may feel too firm for some sleepers under 130 pounds and may permit too much sinkage for some sleepers over 230 pounds. However, overall, this model is comfortable for most side sleepers regardless of weight.
When you sleep on your back, your body weight is more evenly distributed. As a result, back sleepers tend to enjoy a moderately contouring, medium firm to firm mattress. Our testers found that the Emma ACT Hybrid’s medium firm feel provides ample comfort for back sleeping.
For most back sleepers, the Emma ACT Hybrid Mattress provides a good balance of support and contouring to cradle the natural curvature of the spine. The surface is particularly appropriate for back sleepers up to 130 pounds. Back sleepers who weigh over 130 pounds may prefer a slightly firmer mattress, though most should still find the Emma ACT Hybrid comfortable.
The Emma ACT Hybrid Mattress meets the needs of many stomach sleepers under 230 pounds. Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers are at risk of misalignment around the lower back. If you sleep on your stomach, a bed that’s medium firm to firm can cushion your body while preventing your midsection from sagging too deeply into the surface.
Due to the Emma ACT Hybrid’s pocketed coil core and medium firm feel, the sleep surface helps support neutral spine alignment for many stomach sleepers. However, the Emma ACT Hybrid may let stomach sleepers over 230 pounds sink in too deeply, potentially creating lumbar strain.
