I have been sleeping on an orthopedic pillow for a long time, with it my cervical osteochondrosis manifests
yourself much less. But I didn’t get used to it right away, but now I can’t sleep on others. But my husband did not want to buy an orthopedic pillow in any way, getting used to sleeping on his highly whipped down. Until ... one day, headaches led him to a neurologist, and he suddenly determined that the fault was the wrong posture during sleep, from which the husband's arteries were pinched, plus there was some stoop, and as a result, these same arteries did not can acquire straightness of their channel, and that's a headache.
Well, since the whole thing is in the pillow, then the husband was forced to join in the search for this necessary thing. But it turns out that it’s not so easy to find an orthopedic pillow for the individual characteristics of your craniums ... The shape of the head, the height of the shoulder, and tactile habits for the desired softness or rigidity, the desired size of the under-cervical roller, etc. play a role here.
Right in the store, my husband tried to "try on" different pillows on his head, putting his ear to them, trying on height in every possible way.
This difficult choice was made in favor of the Memorysleep pillow / Orthopedic pillow S Grand.
This is a pillow with a maximum cushion height of 14 cm (there is a variant of the same S Medium pillow with a maximum height of 12 cm). But since the height of the husband is 180 cm, he also needed a bigger pillow.
The honest manufacturer indicated the dimensions exactly, I measured it at home just in case. Height on one side 14 cm, on the other 12 cm.
In width and length, respectively, 50 and 40 cm, evenly.
The pillow has a removable cover, made of fabric with the addition of cotton. The material is quite embossed and plump, this is done for good air ventilation, as I guess. Cover with a zipper, easy to remove and wash.
And what is there inside? My old orthopedic pillow, in addition to a removable cover, is also covered with an internal non-removable cover, and I have never even seen its core, this same Memory Foam, that is, polyurethane foam with the so-called memory.
Taking off the cover...
Here such not too attractive brick turned out to be there. To the touch it is an elastic mass, when compressed, it slowly restores its shape.
Not hard and not too soft. Under the head, it is only slightly squeezed, and it turned out to be comfortable to sleep on this elastic mass.
For some reason, it feels like a slightly damp surface of it. Maybe it's because the thermal conductivity is not great, like rubber. But it doesn't matter, because this foam mass will be in the depths of the fabric shells.
I was very surprised to learn that some use this removable cover as a pillowcase.
It seems to be obvious that this is a specially designed fabric in order to provide air exchange, to be a softening layer between polyurethane foam and skin.
As a pillowcase, this cover cannot be useful in any way, because it is: 1) almost completely synthetic, which is not pleasant to the touch, 2) it is subject to hooks due to its functional relief, 3) it is unhygienic, rub the cover in direct contact with polyurethane foam .
I always put my pillow, without bothering, in the most ordinary pillowcases, bending the excess. But mine is a little smaller.
And this Memorysleep S Grand orthopedic pillow just perfectly fit into the standard size of ordinary pillowcases 50x70.
This is what our pillows look like in knitted pillowcases in this size (Memorysleep S Grand on the left):
And the most important thing! The husband miraculously instantly mastered a new support for his head, he didn’t even suffer for one night, that’s what the right choice means.
When he lay down on her for the first time, then, lying on his back, he said that it seemed to him that he was overturned, and his head seemed to be lower than the body according to sensations. Afraid of dizziness, he even put a thin blanket under the pillow to make it its usual height. But he removed it almost immediately, and then only happily exclaimed how comfortable this orthopedic pillow turned out to be. He sleeps for the third month on it and only rejoices at his new pillow-girlfriend. Frequent headaches gradually disappeared.
The advantages of the Memorysleep S Grand orthopedic pillow are comfortable, ergonomic, high-quality, really useful for maintaining health. And not too expensive (a little over 2000 rubles). Hope it lasts a long time. My pillow is over ten years old and hasn't changed at all.
The only negative of the Memorysleep S Grand pillow is that when it was taken out of the package, there was a strong chemical smell, something like new leather shoes. But I knew about this feature of polyurethane foam pillows, this is natural for them. It just needs to be kept outdoors before use. We put a new pillow on the balcony, and after five days the smell was gone without a trace. This is not even a minus at all, probably just a feature.
I convey to everyone who is interested the best recommendations from my husband regarding the Memorysleep S Grand orthopedic pillow. I think it will work great for people who are tall or just fairly broad-shouldered, and the different heights of her rollers at 12 and 14 cm will help to vary a little. I also found it very comfortable to lie on it, my height is 164 cm, but my shoulders are not narrow.
In any case, after carefully measuring your parameters and choosing a size range of preferences, I can advise you to take a closer look at this particular pillow, if its size suits you.
