, Helix Sleep was rated 3.5 out of 5 stars for motion isolation features.
When it comes to motion transfer, The Sleep Judge gives Helix Sleep Mattresses a rating of 8.4/10, saying, "Between the foams and the pocketed microcoils, you get a sleep surface that isolates movement when you sit, lie down, shift, or toss and turn in bed. What this means is that if your partner gets up for a drink of water in the middle of the night, there should be little to no motion noticed by you."
Tuck examined 344 reviews from 11 different sources to produce their review of Helix Sleep. In regards to motion transfer, they give it a rating of Good (with Very Good and Excellent being higher) and say, "Helix mattresses isolate motion and minimize nighttime disruptions to a noticeable extent, which is better than average for hybrid models."
Sleepopolis tested Helix Sleep's motion control by dropping weights on the mattresses, and breaks down their results by the two types of mattresses offered:
"The Moonlight has quite high motion transfer results, which tell me you’re likely to feel your partner’s movements in the night. Given the bouncy nature of the mattress, I’m not too surprised by these results, but it is something for couples to be aware of.
On the other hand, the Midnight exhibited much lower motion transfer results thanks to its thick layer of memory foam up top. This material is excellent at absorbing and containing motion, so helps to curb the bounce from the pocketed coils to ensure that you won’t be too disturbed by your bed mate’s tossing and turning."

Tuck.com analyzed over 300 reviews from 11 different sources for their review, in which they gave Helix Sleep a rating of Good (below Very Good and Excellent) for Temperature Neutrality, saying, "Helix mattresses tend to sleep somewhat cool compared to other hybrids, as polyfoam retains less body heat than memory foam."
Mattress Clarity give Helix a 4.6/5 rating for "Doesn't Sleep Hot" and support this by saying, "You shouldn’t be sleeping hot on a Helix mattress. The coils allow for nice airflow and there is an optional Ultra Cool Cover as well."
The Sleep Judge says, "The dynamic foam doesn’t sleep as hot as memory foam, and you can make it clear in your questionnaire that you sleep hot and get more heat-reducing material to keep things cool at night."

, Helix Sleep was rated 3.0 out of 5 stars for sex compatibility.
Sleepopolis's review of Helix Sleep mattresses said their suitability for sex depends on your tastes (seeing as their mattresses as customised), also saying, "The Helix mattress is the only customizable mattress on this list. The Helix can be both very good or very average for sex. Since it’s customizable, your specifications, needs, and desires will dramatically influence how the mattress actually performs in your bedroom. The layers used in the Helix, notably latex and microcoils, help to solidify bounce and response."
