Why is it necessary and how to choose an anatomical pillow?
An anatomical memory foam pillow, unlike the usual one, adapts to the shape of the body without creating back pressure. Due to this, the muscles of the cervical region are not tense, the vessels are not pinched, which contributes to the normalization of the blood supply to the brain.
The anatomical pillow is ideal for people suffering from cervical osteochondrosis, as well as people who suffer from constant snoring or insomnia.
A special filler creates a state of weightlessness during sleep. The head and body rest throughout the night, which contributes to a sound and healthy sleep.
What to look for when choosing a pillow?
When choosing a pillow, pay special attention to filler pillows. Ordinary pillows are down / feather, holofiber, synthetic winterizer, foam rubber. These materials do not support the cervical spine and cannot adapt to the structure of the body.
Inside the anatomical pillows there should be a unique material with a memory effect. The most common of these is viscoelastic polyurethane foam (Memory Foam), latex, viscolatex. When you lightly press on the pillow, it slowly regains its shape. Such a filler is able to repeat the slightest curves of your body.
The most important indicator when choosing an anatomical pillow is its height. Depending on the habitual posture during sleep, you should choose the optimal height of the pillow. If you sleep on your side, you will need a high pillow. You can calculate the required height by the width of the shoulders: measure the distance from the edge of the shoulder to the base of the neck.
If you sleep on your back or on your stomach, then you need a lower pillow.
Currently, anatomical pillows with adjustable height are on sale. A similar function is in the line of anatomical pillows under the brand BEHAGLI. Pillow model Anatomic Memory has a classic rectangular shape. In it, everyone can easily adjust the height by removing or adding part of the filler.
Having some understanding on how to choose an anatomical pillow, we wish to find the right one for you.
Sweet dreams and stay healthy!
