|What mattress is best for for low back pain and healthy sleep?
Back pain is one of the top reasons that people begin to lose mobility in middle age. Pain can keep people from engaging in physical activity, making it more difficult for them to sleep and also to maintain a healthy weight and keep up their strength, stamina, and balance. So managing back pain is crucial for staying on the path of a healthy and active life. Considering that most people spend roughly a third of their lives lying in bed, choosing the right mattress is essential. It can make the difference in whether you can sleep at night and function the next day.
In the past, doctors often recommended very firm mattresses. What they actually wanted was good support for proper sleep posture. Simply put, a firm mattresses causes pressure on your hips and shoulders and does not conform to your natural curves. This lack of support for areas such as your lumbar curve causes your muscles to work overtime while you sleep. This can lead to morning back pain and that feeling of stiffness in the morning.
Soft mattresses can also be problematic. While a soft mattress that conforms to your body's natural curves may help relieve the feeling of pressure on your hips and shoulders, you might sink in so deeply that your joints twist and your posture goes out of alignmentand that can become painful during the night. There are other problems with poor sleep posture, such as difficulty breathing and snoring.
Of course, you can go to a mattress showroom and test a variety of mattress models. But keep in mind that what feels comfortable for a few minutes in a store might not translate into a good night's sleep. A more reliable test is to observe how you feel after sleeping in your own home. To completely understand if a mattress is right for you might take a few weeks. If the mattress is a good fit, then all is well. But, what if the mattress is almost perfect? In that case, it is important to be able to adjust the mattress to fit you.
|The iSleep Bed: Every iSleep Bed is custom built for the sleeper based upon a comprehensive evaluation of physical factors and sleeper preferences. There is no other way to ensure correct support and comfort. The result is near-perfect sleep posture with comfort just the way you want it.|
Everyone has a unique body and sense of comfort.|
When it comes to comfort, compromise is a certainty when two people share the same bed. Just ask any woman whose husband insisted on a rock-hard mattress. Or a husband smothering in a cushy mattress chosen by his wife. The iSleep Bed settles the argument. It's custom tailored for each sleep partner — without compromise.
The above two images are pressure measurements of a sleeper on a near-perfect and a too firm mattress. The red in the right image shows the very firm areas that can cause pain.
We have added Zoned Polymer Support profiled upon the questionaire of every sleeper. This prevents sagging and provides correct sleep posture regardless of the size and shape of the sleeper.
The Zoned Polymer Support System and the near-perfect sleep posture it provides, is one of the most significant iSleep product differences.
Optionally, the iSleep Bed includes individually adjustable therapeutic temperature controls for both sleepers. Cold feet or a bed surface that's colder than your body can disrupt the depth of your sleep. You wake without feeling refreshed and you aren't even sure why. A bed surface that is too warm is just as uncomfortable and can also disrupt sleep.
The iSleep Bed gives you the option of turning on therapeutic warmth that targets specific areas of the body: cool by your head, a little warmth to relax your back, a little more on your aching knees and thighs, and the most on your chronically cold feet. Each side of the bed can also be controlled individually.
No two people produce the same amount of heat at night (it is related to your metabolism and body weight) and generally people do not agree on sleeping temperature. With the iSleep Bed you can set the temperature for your comfort and the computer control will maintain that steady temperature all night.
Adjustable Ergonomic Foundations
An adjustable foundation makes your iSleep Bed even more personal. With the addition of an adjustable foundation you can not only make the bed the firmness and temperature that you need, you can also make it the SHAPE that you need. Raise the head to watch TV or read, raise your feet to improve circulation and drain fluids from your legs, or raise them both for a "zero gravity" experience.
