People were born in the bed, loved the bed, died in the bed, and more than one-third of their lives were spent in the bed. And insomnia is a sharp edge in this one-third of the time. During the long night, we relentlessly split our heart that longed for sleep.
How many sweet dreams, just pass by insomniacs. So, in those insomnia nights, lying down, lying on his back, lying on his side, lying on his stomach…trying various sleeping positions one by one, he still fought and lost again, and finally he could only count sheep.
So what does it mean to be soft and hard?
People with light weight should sleep in a softer bed. People with heavy weight sleep harder. Soft and hard are actually relative. A mattress that is too rigid cannot support all parts of the body in a balanced manner, and the support points will only be concentrated on the heavier parts of the body, such as the shoulders and hips. Due to the extremely high pressure on these parts, poor blood circulation is difficult and it is difficult to fall asleep. Conversely, if the mattress is too soft, the spine cannot be kept straight due to insufficient support, and the back muscles will not be able to fully relax during the entire sleep process. The study found that the softness and hardness of the mattress can be selected by using 70 kg as the dividing line of body weight.
You don’t need to understand the technical principles of mattresses, that’s what scientists should understand. You must understand the material structure of the mattress, because an honest body will not lie: the hardness is moderate, there is always a material that is best for you.
The main types of mattresses:
1. Spring mattress
The traditional mattress is a spring with a thick wire diameter, which is connected and fixed by a steel wire. The hardness is high, the sleep is firm, the support is good, but the elasticity is not obvious, and it is easy to be involved. Most older generation elders in China or Japanese people often use connected box spring beds due to the influence of their living habits. However, if they sleep in a fixed position for a long time or sit on the bedside and four corners, or do not turn the mattress regularly, it is easy to cause depression and elastic fatigue.
2. Memory foam mattress
Memory foam mattress refers to a mattress that uses memory foam as the material, also known as slow rebound sponge, inert sponge, zero pressure cotton, space cotton, etc. It has the characteristics of decompression, slow rebound, temperature sensitivity, breathability and antibacterial and anti-mite. This mattress can absorb and decompose the pressure of the human body. According to the varying hardness and hardness of the human body temperature, it can accurately shape the body contour and bring no A sense of pressure fit and effective support to the body. It has been proven by medicine to effectively relieve musculoskeletal pain, assist in the treatment of cervical and lumbar problems, reduce insomnia such as snoring and overturning, extend deep sleep time, and improve sleep quality.
3. Latex mattress
The latex of the natural latex mattress is derived from the sap of the rubber tree, which is very precious. Through superb technical processes and modern high-tech equipment, it produces modern bedroom products with a variety of excellent properties suitable for human sleep. The latex mattress can meet the needs of people of different weights, and its good supporting force can adapt to various sleeping positions of sleepers. The area of the latex mattress that touches the human body is much higher than the area of the normal mattress that touches the human body. It can evenly distribute the body’s weight bearing capacity. It has the function of correcting bad sleeping posture and has a sterilizing effect. Another major feature of latex mattresses is that there is no noise and vibration, which effectively improves the quality of sleep, has better air permeability, and the current market price is relatively high. At present, there are artificial latex mattresses on the market, the price is relatively cheap, but the quality is not as good as natural latex.
4. Full brown mattress
A full-brown mattress is a palm mattress. Coconut fiber (coir) fiber that cannot be hand-woven can also be bonded into a palm cushion with an adhesive. The main raw materials of the palm mat are mountain palm silk and coconut silk. Mountain palm silk is the fiber of the brown coat (brown flake) of the palm tree (the color is dark brown); coconut fiber is the fiber in the peel of the coconut (the color is light yellow). The mountain palm mattress originated in the Song Dynasty and reached its heyday in the Qing Dynasty. It has a thousand years of history. It has triggered people’s understanding of comfort, convenience, and practicality when choosing sleeping materials. It plays a pivotal role in the history of Chinese bed development. effect. In the 1970s, the World Health Organization listed palm pads as designated medical mattresses.
