Abstract (en)

[origin: US5787533A] A cushioning support for a mattress comprises a plurality of elements forming a grid structure. Compression springs are mounted on respective ones of the elements. Bearing plates are disposed atop respective ones of the springs, and are disposed closely adjacent one another to form together a support surface for the mattress. The baseplates are removably interconnected so that the size and shape of the cushioning support can be varied to conform to the size and shape of a cushion to be supported. The springs can be detachably connected to the elements, or of one piece construction therewith.
