The right mattress, and whether firm or soft is better, is a popular debate. Yet there's another component of your bedding that greatly impacts quality of sleep. Surprisingly, this powerful sleep accessory is often overlooked. Only when neck problems arise, or restless nights become unbearable, does the pillow get some due attention. Pillows are not only a place to rest our heads, they support our neck and shoulders and help provide proper spinal alignment while we rest.
Selecting a new pillow deserves the same careful attention as choosing a mattress. The goal should always be an ergonomic fit and comfortable pressure relief to help prevent neck and back tension and pain. When choosing a pillow that will fit you best, consider your sleep habits and body type:
Just like the right partner, the perfect pillow should meet all your needs. Although, many brands only offer a limited selection of pillows, a range of shapes and sizes is important to accommodate individual variations.
To help you get the restful nights and the neck and shoulder support you deserve, Technogel has developed gel pillow collections that include a range from a classic, flat shape to ergonomically curved designs. The Deluxe models are offered in varying thicknesses while the Anatomic provides a contoured surface with two-loft heights for customizable neck support and the Contour features an arced edge that curves around your shoulders so your head fits snuggly in the ergonomic curve. Plus, the VIVE Collection pillows offer even greater luxurious comfort with more gel and more premium fabric covers.
Beyond shape and size, temperature is another factor that can make the difference between rejuvenating or sleepless nights. A cool and breathable pillow helps regulate the temperature as we radiate heat from our heads and necks throughout the night. Technogel pillows, for example, all feature a layer of cool, conforming gel combined with top-to-bottom ventilation channels that help promote air flow.
