The company initiated five important studies:

A physiological study

whose purpose was to assess air flow through the mattress surface. The experiments were performed by Dr. Ephraim Bar-Yishay, in the Pulmonary Laboratory, Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. The results showed that the meshed netting allowed free air flow through the mattress surface, with minimal resistance and dramatically reduced accumulation of carbon dioxide – CO2

A parasitological study

whose aim was to assess the ability of house dust mites to survive on the mattress surface. The experiments were done by Dr Kosta Mumcuoglu, in the Parasitology Laboratory, Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. The results proved that there was total inhibition of dust mite survival on the new netting as opposed to normal mattresses on which dust mites not only survived, but reproduced.

A physiological study

whose purpose was to assess air flow through NUMU® in comparison to four infant mattress, which are marketed to prevent prone rebreathing and to one standard infant mattress. The study was performed by Dr Mark Gaides and Dr. Ephraim Bar-Yishay, in the Pulmonary Laboratory, Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, Israel. The results showed that NUMU® allowed free airflow demonstrating a fast rate of CO2 elimination and preventing its accumulation. These qualities significantly surpassed those tested in all other mattresses.
