British Waterbed Company - FAQ Question 1

Who Invented the waterbed?

The earliest recorded use of a 'waterbed' was over 3000 years ago when Persians slumbered on sun-warmed goat skin water bags. Modern waterbeds were first devised by a British physician, Dr. William Hooper, in 1851. He recognised the benefits of a pressure reduced surface in the treatment of a number of medical conditions and made a basic water filled mattress fro rubber.Finally, in the 1960's an American, Charles Hall, refined the construction using hi-tech materials and sophisticated production techniques into the PVC based mattresses we are familiar with today.
