Many people lie incorrectly in bed and as a result, they don't sleep well. Today we know more about the consequences of a lack of sleep and sleeplessness, thanks to progress in sleep research. How well you sleep is of crucial importance for your whole body. Insufficient sleep makes us "fat, stupid and ill". Healthy sleep is the only way for body and mind to regenerate. Even so, many people still sleep on incorrect or worn-out mattresses, which is often the cause of all the problems. Most people lie on a conventional slatted frame which is obsolete in every respect - an outdated invention from the 1950s.
To give the sleeping person the best possible support during the nightly regeneration phases, a good i.e. healthy bed must be suitable for the individual body and offer scope for supportive, load-bearing adjustment in every position. Modern bed systems can do this.
They consist of a precisely coordinated flexible spring base and a correspondingly matching mattress. They act as a system and are ideally adapted to the anatomic and subjective needs of the user. If the mattress and frame do not match each other, the fine coordination of supporting and protective effects is diminished or blocked.
We currently distinguish between two types of AGR-tested bed systems:
The main advantage of this bed system is that the spring base can be adapted individually to the user at any time and therefore also adjusted to changing requirements.
In this case, the mattress is the crucial component for anatomically correct positioning of the body. The system spring base interacts with the mattress to optimise the necessary support for the spinal column.
Both solutions support the unconscious, natural and necessary movement sequences and changes in position during the night. Among others, this is particularly important for the intervertebral disks to regenerate and "be nourished".
Hugely important, both for fostering the hygiene and quality of sleep and for avoiding tension in the muscles.
Tense muscles hurt and scarcely permit adequate circulation and cell purification. The right bed system therefore also fosters muscle relaxation for a better oxygen uptake.
Although all this is well known and important particularly for people with backache, bed systems are still not to be found in widespread use. They are only present in one third of all German households. But 80% of the population suffer from backache at least once in their lives. The right bed makes an essential contribution to avoiding backache.
Current highly recommended bed technology works with a so-called wing spring base (under the mattress). This offers optimum adaptation and flexibility, providing relief and support for the individual zones of the body (even over and beyond the horizontal zero line). In ergonomic terms, this progressive wing technology is no longer comparable with conventional slatted frames.
A healthy bed climate is offered among others by concepts that work with a flexible vertical tubular system to provide a high degree of ventilation. As a result, moisture is dissipated more easily than in many other conventional mattresses.
The quality of sleep depends on the right combination of many different factors, such as a bed system that adapts to every spinal column, the ideal room climate and a healthy bed climate, as well as subjective well-being!
