For three decades, the Swiss back- and sleeping-expert Toni Hochreutener has dealt with the topic of orthopaedics and sleeping. When it comes to this important topic Toni Hochreutener is THE pioneer and expert. Out of his point of view, the perfect bed resp. sleeping system has to be built up after three criteria:
In reference to Toni Hochreutener, the orthopaedic part is the most important, that means, the sleeping underlay needs to reproduce the contours of the body as they are in standing position. Furthermore, a supporting function in the lumbar-region is very important. When laying down, the body weight of a grown up is pressing the lumbar region downwards with about 30 kg, on an average That means, that a sleeping system has to be able to bring about the same supporting power from the bottom up, so that the lumbar region is not lowering, neither from the dorsal nor from the lateral position. At the same time, the sleeping system should enable a gentle stretch of the spine. This leads to a gentle traction of the spine, because only under this precondition the vertebral discs get freed from their wedged position and painful pressure on nerves is relieved. The Bioenergetic Sleep-Healthy-Concept® is perfectly meeting these expectations by its special double-sided, freely suspended slat frame. This slat frame is optimally balancing the weight in every sleeping position, cushioning and supporting the body perfectly.
The natural rubber mattress is taking care for the dermatologic part. It prevents from sensations of pressure on musculature and skin and enables an undisturbed arterial and venous blood flow. The rheumatologic part gets fulfilled by the bedding filled with sheep wool. The used 100 % biologically active sheep wool stores moisture equal to more than a third of its own weight and ensures a dry and warm bedding climate.
This prevents as well inconvenient as sleep disturbing feeling cold or sweating. This is a substantial contribution in preventing rheumatologic discomfort. Toni Hochreutener is seeing a further advantage of the sheep wool filling in the fact that the dust mite is having a limited basis of existence due to the dry-warm bedding climate. And that in turn is a big advantage for persons suffering from an allergy.
The proper pillow is a further important aspect for a perfect sleeping system.
According to the motto “every neck has got to have its own pillow”, the Bioenergetic Sleep-Healthy-Concept is including more than 20 different orthopaedic pillows. Regarding this, the back- and sleep-expert Toni Hochreutener underlines: “An orthopaedically correct position of the cervical curve as well as the prevention from sweating is very important for sensitive necks. And because of that the used cover made from natural cotton can be called exemplary. The broad assortment ranging from different kinds of problems in the cervical curve to whiplash is respectable. Especially the combination of perfect positioning of the spine and the combination of the correct pillow is very important. Nowadays it is known, that 50 % of the cervical syndromes and hardenings of the neck are a consequence of incorrect positioning of the lumbar spine.” Amongst others, Dr. med. Friedhelm Heber (Neu-Ulm, Germany), a German orthopedist, is completely confirming these implementations.
Incorrect furnishing of the bed as cause of sleep disturbances and back pain
Due to these implementations, sleep medics, orthopedists and sleep experts agree: one of the main causes for non-relaxing and disturbed sleep is the used sleeping- or mattress-system. The sleeping underlay, the cover and the pillow interact with the sleeping person; that leads to a constant interplay. According to the sleeping-system you are using, these interplays can either have a positive or negative effect on your sleep and your regeneration.
