An adjustable bed is the ultimate in sleep technology for kids going back to school.
Gardena, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
With a new school year beginning, parents want to do everything they can to give their children the best start to the new year. Purchasing a new mattress may help. Sit 'n Sleep, one of the largest mattress retailers in the United States, understands the importance of a good night’s sleep for promoting alertness and attentiveness.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley announced earlier this year that learning, memory and motor skills can be enhanced by a period of sleep in between a period of learning and testing newly acquired knowledge. The correct mattress plays a critical role in ensuring a good night’s sleep.
According to a Sit 'n Sleep representative, “An adjustable bed is the ultimate in sleep technology for kids going back to school. Not only do they offer a personalized sleep experience, they are perfect for obtaining the best position for reading or working on a laptop computer.”
Other useful tips for purchasing a back-to-school mattress include:
- Size – The most common size of mattress for an individual sleeper is the twin. They allow sufficient space and also make the best use of a small room. A full-size mattress, on the other hand, allows children room to grow.
- Comfort level – Firm is not necessarily better for everybody. Mattresses come in six comfort levels from firm to ultra-plush. A trained sleep consultant can help determine the optimum comfort level for a specific body type.
- Mattress type – If an adjustable bed is not suitable for someone's body type, Sit 'n Sleep has other options available, including memory foam, innerspring, hybrid memory/innerspring mattresses, latex and foam. Memory foam, an increasingly popular option, offers the most flexibility in balancing superior support with weightless contouring to fit the body. Latex mattresses conform to the shape of the body and allow for even distribution of weight. Foam is a cost-effective alternative to the more sophisticated mattress technology.
- Pillow – The right pillow is critical to ensuring correct alignment of the neck and spine. Pillows must be replaced every year due to the accumulation of microscopic dust mites. Dust mites can exacerbate allergies, even in those individuals who do not consider themselves to be allergic. Pillows come in a variety of sizes and materials.
