Oh. That's not what I was thinking of, but anyway, it's interesting. I looked at the site but I absolutely HATE any company that won't tell you the pricing without your calling them or sending for the info. So I canceled out of there presto pronto.

A "Foldin' bed" could be a sleeping bag, hammock, air mattress, or any number of other things.

Yup. This is what I think of when I think "folding bed." Not what I would put into the category of "bedroom stuff" as the OP mentions, and certainly not something you're going to (or can?) put a nice mattress on.

To me this is a folding bed:

But Murphy beds are also called folding beds. OP needs to clarify.

I used to have one of those. It was folding horizontal. Great for a spare/guest rooms. When folded they are super space saving.

Thanks everybody for joining this topic and sorry for misunderstanding. Now I'd like to explain what I was looking for. After searching of dozens of forums and websites, I finally found a bed that my brother would love. It's Edward’s Roll Away bed, you can check out it here https://www.smarthomedesk.com/best-folding-beds/
It's an XL soft bed. The frame is made of steel so it's firm and durable. It comes with wheelers for easier moving or pushing. And the design is perfect! My brother and his wife are so happy, as I am! Hope it'll help to reduce the back pain.

Soft bed wouldn't reduce pack pain.
A mattress support that is soft, would contour the body too extensively, causing a limited freedom of movement and limited moisture drainage.
Those with a bad back require a good balance between support and comfort.
The bed should be on the harder side, but not super firm. In scale 1-10, it should be about 8.

A soft bed will definitely make back pain worse.
The only good thing with your mattress isn't deep enough to promote deep body sagging. However a 4" thin soft mattress like this might make them feel the wire lattice base. Perhaps not now, but in the future.
Is that a memory foam mattress?

Those two seem to have pretty good reviews:
