More REM Sleep
Deep REM Sleep plays a crucial role in physical health. During REM or Rapid Eye Movement sleep, blood flow decreases to the brain and redirects itself towards the muscles, allowing the body and mind to rest and recover. The more REM sleep you get, the more likely you will wake feeling refreshed and ready for peak performance during the day. Our mattresses are designed to reduce tossing and turning and maximize the time spent in the REM Sleep stage.
The REM visco elastic material has in fact helped many people achieve deeper, longer sleep night after night. The reason is that the visco elastic material conforms to your body weight and distribution. No matter which way you turn your body during the night, you are always completely and equally supported in all positions throughout the night.
REM Health Benefits
REM mattresses and adjustable bases provide a pressure relieving sleep that relaxes your muscles and nerves allowing for more time spent in REM sleep. Studies have shown that we spend 1/3 or 8 hours every day of our life in bed. Our goal at REM Sleep Solutions is to provide the ultimate rest and comfort so that you are prepared to perform at your best for the other 2/3 of your life.
Relief of Pressure Points, Body Aches and Pains
Pressure points are traditionally caused by conventional spring mattresses and the weight of one’s body pushing down on to the springs during sleep causing shoulder or back pain. The brain sends a signal to the muscles to toss, turn, and rollover to relieve the pain caused by the pressure of the spring pushing up and body pushing down. You then resettle yourself and the painful process slowly starts again. All of this tossing and turning greatly reduces the time spent in REM Sleep and does not allow for the body and mind to rejuvenate itself. Furthermore, the body is comprised primarily of water. The water tends to settle into the soft midpoints of a spring or coil mattress which then pulls the muscles down with it ultimately resting on the base of the spine. When sleeping on a spring/coil mattress, the body works against itself all night long which causes you to wake with lower back pain and fatigue. Our REM visco elastic material is designed in such a way that the weight is distributed across the entire plane of the mattress. As a result, the comfort material lies under you like a cloud, relieving pressure points throughout the entire body and allowing it to rest comfortably. The REM material also helps relieve pressure from knee joint stress, neck/shoulder pain, and helps keep your spine in perfect alignment during rest.
Edema and Circulatory Problems
Our comfortable mattresses also help with circulatory problem including edema. Relaxation is essential for healthy circulation, ensuring blood flows freely to the parts of the body which have insufficient circulation. Edema or swelling of the feet, ankle or legs can be aided by our pressure relieving mattresses and the Wave adjustable bed. Our adjustable beds allow you to raise the foot end of the bed redirecting the blood flow and allowing you the relief you need to recover during the night.
Helps Reduce Snoring
As many as 25% of adults snore regularly. Snoring occurs in the first two stages of sleep but does not occur in the REM stage of sleep. However, many people toss and turn on a conventional spring mattress which minimizes time spent in REM sleep and maximizes time spent in the snoring stage of sleep. When snoring is severe, it can cause serious, long-term health problems, including obstructive sleep apnea and fatigue. A recommended solution is to elevate the head of your Wave bed about four inches as this opens up the air passage and makes breathing easier during sleep.
Pain from Arthritis
Sleep deprivation was recently noted as the number one reason arthritis patients see a doctor, even more than pain or other associated problems. Aches and pains become magnified with fatigue. REM beds help relieve pain and discomfort that may be enhanced by arthritis.
Research has proven that elevating your Wave adjustable bed about six to nine inches provides a relief from as it puts gravity to work for you easing the discomfort caused by acid reflex.
It is estimated that one in four people suffer from insomnia regularly, and about six million people in the United States have such a serious problem that they rely on the regular use of prescription drugs to treat it. REM mattresses allow your body to relax by reducing muscular discomfort, which is a common cause of insomnia.
Dust mites are the most common cause of allergy from house dust. These particles are found mostly in everyday pillows, spring/coil mattresses, carpeting and upholstered furniture. REM mattresses and pillows are designed to minimize exposure to dust mites.
