PerformaSleep: Increase Performance with Better Sleep
The PerformaSleep Review
PerformaSleep is a brand name of mattress from Japan. They are known for their high quality mattresses.
Their mattresses have been used by many celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and others. They have also been featured in numerous magazines like GQ Magazine and People Magazine.
In 2014 they released their first product, the Performa2. Since then they have made several improvements to the mattress including new materials and improved designs.
They have also added some new features such as memory foam, memory foam inserts and memory foam support panels.
They claim that their mattresses are designed for active adults between 20-50 years old (the average age of a person). Their mattresses are available in two sizes; Regular and Queen size.
Their mattress comes in three different types of material; Memory Foam, Memory Foam Insert and Memory Foam Support Panel.
Memory foam is a type of foam that retains its shape when it’s compressed. It is usually made up of layers of different materials.
One layer may consist of memory foam, another may contain polyester or other synthetic fibers, while still another layer might consist of latex rubber or similar materials. These various materials make up the memory foam in the mattress.
Memory foam mattresses were first developed in the 1960s by NASA. Their mission was to create a bed that could be used by astronauts in space.
They needed a material that could reduce the effect of gravity on the body. A material that could distribute the weight of the user evenly and comfortably.
The pressure is evenly distributed over the body when lying on it, as a baby would settle into a firm mattress. This means there is no pressure on any particular part of the body and it reduces the pressure points on the body to relieve pain in certain areas, allowing you to sleep more comfortably.
The material is also designed to have air flow between the cells of the mattress so that your body can breathe easily while you sleep and keep you cool. It also absorbs heat so you stay warm and cozy at night.
The material is cleaned easily as it doesn’t attract dust or dirt. The mattress is also quieter to move on and can be easily packed away if necessary.
Memory foam mattresses come in three layers. The top layer is mostly made of fabric that has a Tencel finish, this allows the mattress to breathe and absorbs body heat, keeping you cool at night.
This layer is also soft to the touch and is easy to clean as it does not absorb liquids or dirt.
The middle layer of the mattress is usually made up of more memory foam and also acts as a transitional layer between the top comfort layer and the bottom transitional layer. This material allows your body to sink into the mattress a little, but still offers back support.
The foam in this layer is less likely to form body impressions as the cells have a rectangular design rather than a square one like the bottom layer.
The bottom layer of the mattress is made up of rectangular cells that the other layers are packed into. This is the densest layer as it provides most of the support to your body.
This layer also contains some open cells that allow the material to breathe and release heat.
There are several advantages to owning a memory foam mattress. The memory foam responds to the dimensions of your body.
This allows the mattress to support the natural curvature of your spine and distributes your weight evenly, reducing pressure points on your body that can cause pain when you lie in one position for too long. The memory foam molds to your body as you lie on it, this means that there are no awkward body impressions or dents that reduce the level of comfort for back, shoulder or hip pain sufferers.
Caspar has been building really strong relationships with the teams that work on the memory foam and other new materials. He thinks that you will be able to take advantage of these strong connections soon, as he is in discussion with these teams about getting a whole new material for the company to work with.
This is still in development but Caspar has high hopes for it. He’s very excited for this potential product, and hopes that it will give the company a real edge on the competition.
The next step is to go and meet with Caspar and see if his new material is worth exploring further.
You arrive at the meeting and begin discussing the new material that Caspar is so excited about.
