When it comes to finding an effective way to get a good night’s sleep, it can be next to impossible to figure out a compromise between you and your partner and find the ideal comfort you need in order to get to sleep. The good news is that there are all kinds of advancements in technology related to the bedding industry and there are always even more changes coming down the pipe. If you want to know more about five of the most important technological advancements in the bedding industry, all you have to do is keep reading. Who knows, you just might find something that you need so you can stop tossing and turning and start getting the sleep that your mind and body have been craving.
1. Stay-cool technology for mattresses and pillows
One of the things that has a tendency to keep people up at night is simply being too warm. Everybody knows how this one plays out. You go to bed and you’re cold because you’re tired and you’ve been up for hours. You cover up, only to wake up a few hours later sweating and way too hot to go back to sleep. At the very least, this is a nuisance that disrupts your sleep pattern and in a worst-case scenario, it could mean that you’re unable to go back to sleep at all. Thankfully, new technology allows for the production of mattresses and pillows that are made out of a special material designed to help you stay cool and better regulate your body temperature at night.
2. Beds that adjust to the shape of your body
Sometimes you can’t go to sleep because you’re simply in too much pain to do so. People that suffer from issues related to chronic pain or even those who have suffered some type of traumatic injury often find themselves unable to sleep at night because they can’t find a comfortable sleeping position in the first place. Some beds are made of a special material that adjusts to the shape of each person’s body, effectively cradling the body and relieving pressure points that can cause pain. It’s designed to help people sleep better even when they have issues with pain on a routine basis.
3. Beds that automatically adjust to your sleeping habits
If you really want to go high-tech, you can do that with a bed that intuitively adjusts to your sleeping habits in order to help you reach the best possible sleep. For example, the bed automatically adjusts its sleeping position and temperature in order to help you stay asleep because it’s able to sense when you’re about to wake up. It accomplishes this by monitoring things like vital signs and even body temperature. It can also give you feedback that can help you sleep even better in the future. The bed even goes as far as monitoring how much you toss and turn during the night.
4. Mattresses that allow you to adjust each side independently
You have probably seen the commercials for these mattresses that are basically split down the middle, each side complete with its own motor. That allows you to effectively adjust each side by raising either the foot or the head of the bed in order to create a sleeping position that is comfortable for you. The good news is that even if it’s not comfortable for your partner, he or she is unaffected because since the bed is split down the middle, each side adjusts independently of the other.
5. Beds that allow you to control the temperature of the mattress on each side
If you’re in the mood to take individual comfort to an entirely new level, you can purchase a bed that allows you to adjust both your sleeping position and temperature for each side of the bed. This means that you can sleep at 75 degrees with your feet and head elevated while your partner sleeps at 65 degrees on a flat bed. Better yet, the two of you get to sleep in the same room, in the same bed, without driving each other crazy in the process. This is the type of technology that can effectively end all of those nighttime fights between husband and wife just because the room is too hot or too cold for one or the other.
