Excessive pressure is the enemy of deep, restful, restorative sleep. Because our shoulders and hips stick out more than our sides and back, they bear much of our weight when we lie down, causing pressure points on these sensitive areas of the body. When we sleep, we toss & turn to avoid pain from these pressure points. The higher the pain, the more we toss & turn, and when that’s excessive, sleep efficiency is compromised.
Pressure mapping is used to compare IntelliBED compared other mattress technologies. It’s common to see reduction in pressure (and pain) of 50-80% versus other leading brands. In fact, many sleepers report that they wake up in the same position that they went to sleep in. What makes IntelliGel so unique is its column buckling (honeycomb) shape, which gives it the ability to “sense” a pressure point and relax under it, thereby relieving the pressure and distributing it to surrounding cells, while allowing the rest of your body to actually float in a comfortable horizontal position.
