They come with all kind of features, like adjustable firmness on both side for couples with different size and weight, multiple air chambers, and inside they have “pockets” or cells to prevent the air to transfer too quickly from one side to another when you turn while sleeping improving stability.

The shape of the air mattress is formed by foam. The foam is kept in place by rails inside the mattress and also provides firmness on the sides, which is the part of the mattress that tends to bend more. Self inflating air mattress are usually made of PVC, nylon, latex or vulcanized rubber.
