More Than 25 Years in the Making

Thanks to more than 25 years of innovative German engineering and Italian design, we’ve created something truly exciting — the next wave in ergonomics. And it all began with an unusual substance and one man’s dream…

We call it 3D conformability. You’ll call it the best night ever. Technogel is a one-of-a-kind biocompatible material that adapts like water while providing the support of a solid. By molding uniquely to the contours of your body, Technogel helps alleviate pressure and maintain proper spinal alignment while allowing natural ease of movement.
Pressure mapping done in internal tests demonstrated how laying on a thick surface layer of Technogel is more pressure relieving than standard foam or memory foam mattresses. Because, unlike foam, Technogel conforms gradually in all directions (up/down, right/left, etc) to distribute weight evenly from head to toe. So you feel like you’re laying on the mattress, not in the mattress.
And that’s good news because less pressure points has been correlated with better blood circulation and less waking up with numbness or sore joints.
Technogel makes a distinguishing difference: it’s the perfect blend of comfort and ergonomic support.

What’s really cool about Technogel? Thanks to the thermal properties of this patented gel, it disperses body heat to help you maintain a temperature that’s comfortable for sleeping. Plus, an innovative tower-grid design promotes airflow to help enhance thermal regulation.

When your circadian rhythm triggers a decrease in physical activity and temperature to facilitate resting, the body generates humidity in the form of perspiration. The conductivity and solid density of Technogel  pulls away this heat that’s released in this process to help keep you cool (whereas the tiny air chambers in foam trap and insulated it). In fact, measuring skin temperature with infrared thermometers show how Technogel  can lower your body temperature by as much as 4.0°F.

Then, during the course of a night’s sleep, your body and the gel reach a balance. The amount of time it takes the gel to equal your body temperature depends on factors such as room temperature, how much heat your body is releasing and the thickness of the gel layer.

If you have trouble sleeping because you are too hot—or too cold—then you understand first-hand how temperature makes the difference between rested and restless. But sleep scientists have also shown the relationship between temperature and better quality sleep. So avoid waking hot and sweaty; stay cool, comfortable and sound asleep.

Because you avoid waking too hot or struggling to find a comfortable position, you can enjoy more efficient, uninterrupted rest. And don’t just take our word for it! Clinical tests revealed that Technogel  mattresses can help decrease time spent in light sleep by as much as 33%, while increasing deep sleep up to 45 percent. That’s an eye opening fact!

To learn how a night’s sleep on Technogel  compares to a common foam mattress, we collaborated with the Sleep Disorder Center of the University of Turin at Le Molinette Hospital in Italy to let science explain why Technogel  Sleeping feels so good.

Healthy volunteers were studied in the sleep lab using video-polysomnography (PSG) in a double-blind crossover test that randomly alternated nights of sleep on a standard foam-based mattress with sleep on the same foam-based mattress enhanced by a thick top layer of Technogel. And here’s what we found out:

  • When volunteers slept on the Technogel mattress, a statistically significant increase of up to 45% was observed in time spent in deep sleep (stages 3 and 4).
  • Volunteers spent up to 33% less time in stage 1 (falling asleep) and also wake after sleep onset (WASO).
  • Skin and mattress temperatures were lower and subjective bed comfort was rated higher.

And that’s why we say deeper sleep and more refreshing mornings start with Technogel . The rest is extraordinary!
