Absolutely. Latex foam is extremely durable and would work well with any adjustable foundation. Its one of the longest lasting foams on the market. Also one of the most expensive. Most mattress retailers carry a couple different firmness levels of latex mattresses.

Latex does work great on an adjustable base. Just avoid toxins ie toxic flame retardant on ANY mattress and go with either organic or latex with a non-toxic flame retardant.

Yes there are lots of latex mattresses that will work on adjustable beds. I would recommend not getting one too thick because it can have a bridging effect. I would definately lie on any mattress before purchasing it. I sleep on latex and it is GREAT.

Here are a couple of links to latex mattresses we carry. The 1st link is for Staerns & Foster models and the 2nd link is for a two-sided, flippable latex mattress. All can be ordered on-line.

Here is the deal. Yes you can get adjustable bases but there are drawbacks. Latex beds are heavey which will put an adjustable base under a lot of strain. I have seen many leggett & platt bases break from this. Also: despite the durable nature of latex is will cause the bed to wear. In cases where a third party inspector is used for warrantt claims, it is not uncommon for an inspector to recommend end of warranty for poor mattress support. Can you use these bases? Of course but it is not recomended. Its a lot of extra cost for very little benefit.

Yes, indeed. In fact latex mattresses work really well with adjustable beds. That's the great thing about latex mattresses is their ability to stretch and conform. As they conform so well to a person's body shape, they also fit just as well with the adjustable bed. In fact there are some great companies that sell the adjustable bed foundation right along with the latex mattress because they work so well in tandem.

Check out http://mountainairorganics.com/ They aren't trying to sell you a mattress working out of a office park. They have a real showroom and carry the Savvy Rest organic mattress brand. My parents had a latex mattress on an adjustable bed for 31 years. All the big "S" brands are synthetic latex. Look for the words "100% all natural latex rubber"alt text
