Basic Knowledge of Memory Foam Pillow:
The memory foam pillow is the same as an ordinary pillow, it is also divided into two sides. The side with the zipper is the reverse side. When we sleep, it is the front of it. In general, the front of the purchased memory foam pillow is high on one side and low on the side. The correct way to sleep is to put the high side to sleep on the neck. The high and low design is designed to suit different people. If you like a high pillow, use the high side and the low side of the pillow.
Memory Cotton Features:
1. Temperature characteristics:
After sensing the temperature of the human body, it gradually softens and absorbs the pressure to adjust the body to the most comfortable state. For parts that are not exposed to body temperature, sufficient support can still be maintained.
2. Resilience performance
After the product is pressed down, it will not show strong rebound force. When the pressure is removed, the product will gradually return to the original shape. This kind of performance is called “slow rebound”. Slow rebound can adjust the irregular shape of the pressing force to the most balanced state, which can slowly deform to adapt to the pressing object and provide the most uniform supporting force.
3. Antibacterial and anti-mite
Memory cotton is a high molecular polymer material. It is difficult for bacteria and microorganisms to grow and multiply on materials because they cannot find the nutrients needed for survival on this material. Therefore, memory cotton has good antibacterial and antimony properties.
How to Choose a Memory Foam Pillow
1. The key steps to choose a memory foam pillow: Determine the appropriate height and hardness
In addition to focusing on the interior of the pillow with different characteristics, the most important thing is to determine the height and hardness of the pillow that best suits your body's actual situation. Sleep habits also have a subtle effect on the height of the memory foam pillow and should be considered together.
For normal people, the height and hardness of the memory foam pillow are related to each person's fat and thin, shoulder width, neck length, and comfort.
High pillows are not worry-free: Normal people who sleep too high pillows, whether lying on their back or lying on their side, will change the physiological curvature of the cervical spine. Over time, the muscles of the neck will be strained, paralyzed, accelerate the deformation of the intervertebral joints, and promote the formation of bone spurs. , causing problems such as instability of the cervical spine. In addition, the high pillow will increase the angle between the neck and the chest, so that the tracheal ventilation is blocked, which may lead to a dry throat, sore throat and snoring.
The low pillow is not comfortable: normal people sleep for a long time, it will also change the physiological state of the cervical spine. Because the vein of the head has no valve, gravity will slow down the cerebral venous return, and the arterial blood supply will increase relatively, resulting in discomforts such as head swelling, irritability, and insomnia.
2. How to judge whether the memory foam pillow is too high or too low
Memory foam pillow is too high: If the patient's factors are excluded, there are brain neurasthenias such as neck pain, headache, dizziness, tinnitus, and insomnia, or if you sleep and sleep halfway and feel numbness in your hands and feet, it is very likely that your pillow is too high.
Memory foam pillow is too low: If you don't drink water before going to sleep, but wake up to find facial swelling, this may be too low a pillow, causing slight congestion of the head. If the pillow is too low, the lower jaw will lift upwards, and it is easy to breathe and snoring.
Usually, the appropriate height of the memory foam pillow is more suitable for 10-15 cm, but the specific size is also determined by the physiological characteristics of each person, especially the physiological curvature of the neck. Pillows with a shoulder-wide body can be slightly higher, while those with a thinner body can be slightly lower.
Sleep habits also have an effect on determining the height of the pillow. The height of the memory foam pillow should be equal to the height of the fist (the height of the fist and the height of the fist is the height of the boxing), and the person who is used to sleeping on the side, The height of the pillow should be consistent with the height of one shoulder of the shoulder after compression.
Of course, it is ideal to maintain normal physiological curvature of the neck, whether you are sleeping or sleeping sideways. For the memory foam pillow itself, the part supporting the back of the neck (neck bend) should be slightly higher and have a certain hardness in order to set off and maintain the physiological curvature of the neck. The part supporting the back of the head should be 3-5 cm lower than the above part so that it can fully support the head and adapt to the height of the neck.
In general, people with high blood pressure, heart disease, and asthma sometimes need to sleep high pillow; people with low blood pressure and anemia sometimes need to sleep on the low pillow.
Important Considerations for Using Memory Foam Pillows:
1. Please use the high-end at the beginning of your use. Before going to sleep, whether you are lying on your side or lying on your back, you must put your head in the middle of the slow rebound pillow. The neck and the pillow should be tightly stitched together, leaving no gaps. This is very important. After the day, you should feel that you are full of energy after waking up, and your neck is very comfortable. If you wake up during sleep, feel the sleep changes, the head is off the middle position, there is a gap between the neck and the pillow, remember to adjust to no gap at any time, that is, the neck should completely fit the high-end curve of the memory foam pillow.
2.The height of the memory foam pillow is padded in the neck, which plays a mandatory therapeutic role. The shoulder width and back are also suitable. The lower part of the memory foam pillow is suitable for the preventive use of conventional health care. Of course, it is mainly based on comfort, in practical application. Adjust your own comfort.
