Fibromyalgia (fi-bro-my-AL-ja) syndrome (FMS) produces chronic body-wide pain, which migrates and can be felt from head to toe. Fibromyalgia can occur at any age and tends to fluctuate from hour to hour and day to day. A good night’s sleep can do wonders. Unfortunately, a common symptom of FMS is poor quality sleep, called the alpha-delta sleep anomaly, where as soon as you reach a level of deep delta sleep, alpha brain waves bump you back to shallow sleep. The body needs delta sleep to do its repair work.
No mattress can make a claim to cure this painful ailment however people have reported better quality sleep when they sleep on materials like latex and FlexGel.
Medical pressure relieving technology provides a dramatic visual demonstration of how pressure is relieved to help provide deeper delta sleeping on a FlexGel mattress.
Menopause typically occurs in a woman’s late 40’s to early 50’s. Approximately 75-85% of menopausal women experience hot flashes, which can last for five years. Hot flashes and sweating can make it difficult to sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 61% of menopausal women have sleep problems. Sleeping difficulties can lead to other problems, such as daytime drowsiness.
FlexGel has two great health benefits which can help some of the symptoms of Menopause. The temperature regulating benefits of the OUTLAST fabric developed for NASA combats hot flashes to help provide a more comfortable night’s rest. Every movement on FlexGel products gently distributes air throughout the mattress resisting mattress heat build-up.
Pregnancy is an exciting and physically demanding time. Physical symptoms (body aches, nausea, leg cramps, fetus movements and heart-burn), as well as emotional changes (depression, anxiety, worry) can interfere with sleep. 78% of women reported more disturbed sleep during pregnancy than at other times although some women have few sleep problems. Sleep related problems also become more prevalent as the pregnancy progresses. One recent study reported that changes in sleep occur in 13-20% of women in the first trimester and increase to 66-90% by the third trimester.
FlexGel products relieve pressure on your muscles as well as allowing better circulation to the sleeper. This combination of benefits will provide excellent comfort during and after pregnancy! ...not too hot ...not too cold ...just right!
