Ergonomic Science of the Sleep Saga
Creating great compatibility between the product and the user is Ergonomics. It is the branch of science that deals with anthropometry and information design to the physiology and psychology of the user to minimize the risk of injury and harm.
Adults require on an average of 7-9 hours of sleep for better functioning of the body. Yet the hectic work schedules, such as long or late shifts, night shifts, travel, etc., can cause a negative impact on one's body. That is why good sleep is essential to rest, restore and recover our mind and body from these day-to-day activities. The main aim of sleep Ergonomics is to create Safe, and Comfortable spaces to ensure that we are able to provide our body some good rest.
For our health and well-being, getting a good night's sleep is essential as it restores energy levels, reduces stress, and lowers blood pressure. Let’s learn how ergonomics can give you the gift of deep sleep. Safe, and sound sleep seems normal but is tough to achieve. It has been found in most cases that; the culprit is the sleep environment. It is high time that we consider sleep hygiene as an important factor as it affects our day-to-day activities.
We have discovered few important factors that we need to focus on to achieve deep sleep.
Let’s discuss to understand it better:
Yes! The culprit could be your mattress. A good mattress is as important as a good cup of tea to start the day. The material that is used to build the mattress is what makes all the difference, when it comes to mattresses. Most of the mattresses that are available in the market are either Spring mattresses or hard mattresses.
People prefer Spring mattress as it provides back support. However, the support is not uniformly distributed throughout the mattress. These mattresses are also uncomfortable because they do not provide motion separation and the squeaky noises of the coils make it quite difficult to sleep. When it comes to hard mattresses, they don't provide any orthopedic benefits. Another disadvantage is that these mattresses don’t offer breathability. Moreover, both spring and hard mattress causes poor blood circulation and is one of the reasons we wake up in the middle of the night feeling uncomfortable.
As the circulation of blood to the body gets interrupted, it starts to create pressure points in the sleeper’s neck, shoulders, and hips. If the sleeper’s spine is bent in an unnatural way during sleep is most likely to cause postural defects over time. The unsupportive mattress is unable to conform to the body shape of the sleeper. All of these stop you from getting good rest.
So here comes the ergonomics for good sleep - The right support. MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES of NEOBEST are specially designed to get rid of all the barriers that come between you and good rest. The mattress takes the S-shape of the body, and distributes the body weight uniformly across the bed, and result in deep and restful sleep. NeoBest focuses on building mattresses that give the sleeper’s spine the attention that it needs. These features ensure body shape conformity and uniform body weight distribution and prevent the sleeper’s spine from being bent in an unnatural way.
The Sleeping Positions:
The sleeping posture is one of the factors that determine also the quality of sleep. If you are a side sleeper then try to use one side pillow between your legs, so that you don’t put any unnecessary pressure on your arm; which can cause problems with circulation. And if you are a back sleeper, try putting a pillow under your knees to maintain a neutral lower-back curvature. Try to avoid sleeping on your stomach as it causes unnecessary neck pain and muscle tightness.
The Mental Health:
We all know that sleep highly affects our mental and emotional health. The interrupted sleep can result in insomnia. Body activities fluctuate during the sleep cycles. During deep sleep our body temperature lowers, muscles begin to relax, breathing slows down and so does the heart rate. This plays a crucial role in physiological development as well. During REM or Rapid Eye Movement stage, our body temperature, heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure begin to rise. This is when we dream. REM sleep is crucial for mental and emotional health.
Choosing the right pillow is also an essential step for deep sleep. Staying in on position for too long can cause tension in the neck and shoulder. Our Memory Foam Pillows are crafted with superior memory foam that cradles your head and keeps your head and neck aligned even while you sleep on your side and prevents the head from sinking. Our ergonomic pillows are designed for your preferred sleep position which helps minimize any tension from sleeping in one posture. Our pillows are made from hollow fibres which help retain your form and offer great support across the length of the pillows. The height of the pillows can be adjustable to your preference, all you need to do is to remove the hollow fibre fill. The right-sized pillow will solve all neck and shoulder problems and will offer great support to the head, neck, and shoulder and adapt to the different contours of this area.
