FAQs - Advanced Neck Pillow Solutions | Better sleep in any position
What is an ERGONOMIC PILLOW BOOSTER or NECK PILLOW PAD?
This is a pad that is placed underneath a pillow in order to transform the pillow shape into a more ergonomic and orthopaedic support, suitable for any sleeping position.
What problem is it solving?
Research shows that people need a different height of support depending on whether they sleep on their back or their side. The problem is that most people actually change position when they sleep, on average between 11 and 13 times a night. A standard, flat pillow does not offer the flexibility to adapt to this.
How does it work?
This device boosts your pillow to provide two levels of support. The central section is used for back sleeping and provides no additional support. This insures your head is not raised too high, tilted forward, straining the neck and closing the airways. When you roll onto your sides you access the side pads which raises your head around 5 cm. This prevents your head drooping down putting pressure on your shoulder and strain on your neck.
What is the neck bar for?
The neck bar provides an extra level of cervical support when back sleeping. It follows the contour of your spine, preventing the head from tilting forward. The effect of this is to reduce strain on the back of the neck and any potential ‘crushing’ of the airways in your throat, keeping the head level. It could also potentially prevent snoring.
How was it designed?
The overall device is the same dimensions as a standard UK pillow. The side pads and neck bar measurements were inspired by medical research papers that investigated the optimum support differential required for back sleeping and side sleeping. The side pads are box sided to provide the same level of height all the way to the edge of the pillow.
Does it come in different sizes?
We appreciate that more petite people or people with broader shoulders may require a different level of ‘boost’ to their pillow. Our Ergonomic Pillow Booster works perfectly for the vast majority of people and our inflatable and adjustable Neck Pillow Pad should suit any size.
Does it matter what pillow I use on top?
This device works with any pillow, if you feel like your particular pillow is not working well with our booster please let us know at email@example.com.
Why is this better than a specialist pillow?
Cervical support pillow are very popular and work well, but they only support you in one position, normally back sleeping. A small number of specialist pillows offer cervical support and raised side pads but these are very expensive, around £65 - £100. They also require specialist covers and you have no say over the filling or firmness. Our device is different, by working with your pillow you can retain your firmness and filling preference whilst still gaining the ergonomic shape of a specialist pillow. It also allows us to make our product significantly cheaper!
What materials are used?
There are no secret ingredients here, just high quality materials used in bedding. Dacron wadding to provide a flat, level and soft side pad, memory foam to provide a firm, conforming neck bar and thick and durable Drill Cotton for the covering. Our inflatable version is made using high quality PVC.
Is it patented?
Yes, both the device and the method of use are protected both in the UK and overseas.
