Ease of Use
Though most mattresses nowadays don’t need to be flipped, turning it once every three months helps keep the mattress in good condition and can increase its lifespan. In the ease of use category, testing agencies assess whether a mattress has handles, how heavy it is and how easy it is to turn. They also take a closer look at the structure of the mattress: It shouldn't be too soft, so that it bends when you pick it up, and it shouldn’t be too rigid that you cannot move it at all. Generally, if the mattress can be turned by one person it will receive a positive score in this category.
