Boulder, Colo.-based Outlast Technologies Inc., developer of Outlast® temperature-regulating
technology and phase-change materials (PCMs) and applications, has announced that Minneapolis-based
Select Comfort Corp. has added a sheet set and lightweight blanket to its line of In Balance™ sleep
products featuring Outlast technology. Select Comfort’s Outlast Sleep System also includes Sleep
Number® mattresses, mattress pads and layers, and pillow protectors.
Outlast technology features microencapsulated Thermocules™ that absorb excess body heat,
store it and then release it when the body is cold, thereby balancing a sleeper’s skin temperature,
according to Outlast. The company reports the Outlast Sleep System of bedding products provides
optimal sleep for everyone from normal sleepers to thermally incompatible couples and women
The 350-thread-count, machine-washable In Balance sheets and pillowcases are made using a
50-percent cotton/50-percent Outlast Viscose fiber blend.
