Technogel® Travel Pillow
Suggested for all type of travelers that want to experience a good night’s sleep away from their own bed. Technogel Travel Pillow is the ideal companion to bring everywhere.
Dimension: 12" x 12 x 4" (Standard)
WHY IS TECHNOGEL® DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER GEL?There are other gels on the market, but Technogel® is clearly distinct from every other one. So-called “gel” products are not Technogel®. Why? Here follow 4 simple ways to differentiate Technogel® from these other gels.
|1. 3D Deformation | Technogel® deforms 3 dimensionally and reacts to forces differently than the foam, deforming in all the three directions. Technogel moulds itself to each individual user's physical structure. Pressure is evenly distributed over the entire contact surface, and this generates a substantial reduction in pressure peaks leading to an improvement in blood circulation.|
|2. Thermal Regulation | Technogel® is characterized by an high thermal conductivity, compared with other good isolator materials, like foam. Technogel® is lowering the contact surface's temperature, as the heat generated by the human body is transported through its mass and partially dispersed. A decrease in skin temperature reduces the metabolism activity and, therefore, the demand of oxygen from tissues, granting a much more relaxed night sleep.|
|3. Ventilation | A specific tower design has been developed, to optimize both the ventilation and the 3D deformability of the Technogel®. This innovative design has open air channels from a minimum of 23% up to 36% of the top surface (according to the different models) and delivers extraordinary air circulation, also providing optimal moisture conduction. Thanks to its unique thermal properties, Tehcnogel® provides an enjoyable cool feeling|
|4. Ergonomics | We all know about the importance of sleeping in a self tailored mattress. Our body, particularly our spine, needs a support able to adapt to its 3D structure, without causing pain, tissue compression, or improper posture. In order to deepen the biomechanic and ergonomic properties of the Technogel® mattress, we performed several tests at the "Ergonomic Intitut of Munich", Germany. Great results were found for every simulated group of persons (small, medium-sized, large).|
|5. Durability | Technogel® is totally free from volatile agents, so that its components cannot split free or migrate, hence, not causing substance disaggregation. It does not harden or age, but it keeps its elastic and mechanical properties. Tests have demonstrated that it is able to withstand more than 300,000 pressure cycles without deformation that may affect its performances.|
|6. Sleep Tests and Research | A test was conduced in Turin "Le Molinette" sleep center on healthy volunteers and showed that was noticeable, during the night slept on the Technogel® based mattress, an increase (up to 45%) in time spent in Slow Wave Sleep, the phase in which the brain really rests (non-REM phases 3 and 4) and a decrease (up to 33%) of both time spent in non-REM sleep stage 1 ("light" sleep), then wake after sleep onset. Moreover, skin and mattress temperature were lower, and bed comfort higher. Professor's findings show that, in healthy volunteers, gel-based (Technogel®) mattress consolidates sleep; this effect could be ascribed to the thermal and biomechanical differences between foam and gel.|
