It seems obvious enough…our bodies aren’t flat. They’re curvy. Broader and heavier in some areas, tapered and lighter in others. But most mattresses do a poor job of addressing the support needs of our curvy bodies. All too often they are built with tight, non-elastic covers and coil systems that lack independence and dynamism. The result is inadequate contour and the discomfort of contact pressure.
Beyond simply causing discomfort, the pressure that most mattresses exert against your body can rob you of much-needed rest and rejuvenation. Pressure-point stress at weight-bearing areas of the body can also impair circulation, disrupt cellular respiration, increase your heart rate, raise blood pressure, and lead to shallow sleep. Most conventional mattresses have pressure ratings at or above levels that can cause circulatory problems to develop.
Contact pressure can also mean a night spent tossing and turning in search of a comfortable position. This is especially true for side-sleepers seeking relief for achy shoulders and hips. Without relief, many people resort to unnatural sleep postures. The better solution is a mattress system that takes into account body contour and is able to yield to our curves.
The European Sleep Works Solution
European Sleep Works mattresses map the body’s contour, giving where needed to reduce pressure. Our stretchy, knit-cotton mattress cover, elastic natural latex foam, and independent coils combine to create a uniquely comfortable surface with dramatically reduced pressure ratings that are well below those of conventional mattresses. Our flexible, adjustable slat system yields at weight-bearing points, providing greater give and increased pressure reduction. Our stretch-knit cotton mattress pad protects your mattress without adding surface tension. The result? You feel cradled rather than pressured, supported rather than torqued. It all adds up to lower contact pressure, improved circulation, and lower blood pressure for deeper, more restorative sleep.
