Through the ages, people have used hay, linen and all kinds of other materials to make a more comfortable place to sleep. In modern times we have achieved the most perfect form of comfort and support yet discovered. The gel mattresses of Intellibed use the patented Gel Matrix to create a mattress that relieves pressure by distributing it to less distressed parts of the body. It provides the right amount of support as well as the right comfort to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
Intellibed’s patented gel mattress is unlike any other gel mattress on the market. Most other mattresses are a combination of foam and other materials. Because Intellibed owns the patent on the Gel Matrix, only Intellibed can give you the pure, unadulterated gel mattress, the most advanced way to get a comfortable sleep yet invented.
There are three basic positions for sleeping, each with advantages and drawbacks. Whichever position you prefer, a gel mattress from Intellibed is the right solution for you.
Back sleeping is the method recommended by doctors, but it is also rather uncommon. Only 8% of people sleep on their backs, despite the fact that back sleeping maintains the best alignment of head, neck, and spine. With a good pillow, back sleepers will have less trouble with insomnia. However, those with sleep apnea or who snore may find that this position exacerbates their problem.
The best mattress for back sleepers will provide firm and consistent support all along the body without buckling under the weight of the sleeper. Gel mattresses from Intellibed fit the bill nicely, providing a soft surface for comfort and firm support underneath.
Side sleepers include those who sleep with their legs outstretched as well as those who sleep in the fetal position, with legs curled. They represent over half of the population. They are both comfortable positions and good for people who snore. However, sleeping on your side does not always keep the body aligned properly. Side sleepers often awaken with hip pain or shoulder pain in the morning.
The best mattress for a side sleeper is one that provides pressure relief. Side sleepers often toss and turn at night as their bodies relieve the pressure that builds up in the shoulders and hips. A gel mattress from Intellibed helps with this issue by distributing pressure to other parts of the body. It’s so effective, gel mattresses are used in long-term care facilities to prevent bedsores!
The rest of the population sleeps on its stomach. Though lying face down can be a good position to prevent sleep apnea and snoring, stomach sleepers often wake with neck cramps and back issues because the face-down position is not ideal for the curvature of the spine.
Adequate support is vital for those who sleep on their stomachs. Support for the stomach will keep the spine in an acceptable alignment while you sleep, and Intellibed’s products handle the job perfectly, providing support for the body’s alignment as well as a soft surface for a comfortable sleep.
Gel Beats Memory Foam
Memory foam was first developed by NASA in the 1970s for its space flight program. It has a pleasing softness to it but does not provide the support that the Gel Matrix does. Memory foam is also made with chemical irritants. After you buy it, the memory foam can off-gas for months. These gases are harmful if inhaled in sufficient quantities and they can emit foul odors as well.
The chemicals in a memory foam mattress also give off heat, and many people complain of feeling hot at night while they try to sleep.
There really is no contest. Intellibed mattresses give you all the softness of a memory foam mattress, but with more support and none of the unpleasant side effects like off-gassing and heat.
Intellibed’s gel mattresses are perfect for every kind of sleeper. They provide the right support, give the best cushioning and suffer from none of the drawbacks that afflict their competitors. Treat yourself to a restful sleep with a gel mattress. Visit an Intellibed store today.
