How do you sleep correctly?
By lying perfectly horizontal
A horizontal spine: During the day, our intervertebral discs lose a lot of moisture through vertical pressure. By keeping our spinal column in the most perfect horizontal position during the night, we facilitate the supply of fluids and speed up recovery.
By lying perfectly straight
A straight spine: This avoids pressure on the intervertebral discs and prevents damage and wear.
What should we do?
Physiognomy and sleeping habits have a great influence on our sleep. It soon became clear that the perfect mattress should be adjustable in three zones: Hips, waist and shoulders. The researchers therefore first defined the decisive parameters: weight, height, but also age, gender, sleeping position, width of hips, waist and shoulders and the soil used.
The YUNO mattress is developed together with Custom8, a spin-off from KU Leuven, Belgium. Employees of the department biomechanics developed the measurement system and the composition of the YUNO mattress. Here, they combined fixed zones – the three crescents – with an interchangeable, customisable inlay consisting of three individual pads. In the shoulder area, they made additional incisions to create even more space. Finally, they also developed the algorithm, which links measurement and result.
“Lift the hips, lower the shoulders”
This is the only way to lie perfectly horizontally. In all other mattresses, the hips are kept low and the shoulders are lifted.
