Dorsal and Health

The vertebral column is one perfect device of which one must have maximum consideration. To sleep on inadequate beds, with slats and mattresses too much rigid or weak means to compromise the natural positions and shape of the body, provoking sensations of “pins and needles” and muscular annoyance of back, arms and legs. 

This is due to poor blood circulation and too much pressure on focused points. With Dorsal the column relaxes in a natural way and excellent quality material used on our products allow pressure relief.

The test was performed by CATAS laboratory with the aim of testing pressure relief advantages of NaturMemory foam used in conjunction with Dorsal bedframes and pillows that have passed the Medical Device standards.
Body Pressure Measurement System was operated, a software able to localize the differences of distribution of the pressure

of the human body of the three subjects.
Positions assumed were both to the side and face up to simulate the classic sleeping positions. The three persons had different bedframe system associated to the mattress to best match the person anatomy and give optimal muscle relaxation.

Test results ›

The images show three persons, different in body shape and weight (upper: female, fit, 56kg, 165cm – middle: male, sportsman, 75kkg, 175cm – lower: male, sedentary job, 100kg, 185cm).

Chromatic scale
the test shows how all three persons did not develop a high level of pressure therefore both mattress and bedframe worked together to give the best weight distribution. The scale measures the pressure in this case mmHg (millimeter of mercury) that converted in gr/m² or pounds/inch² are 1,36gr/m² or 0.02pounds/inch². For example the green area, point of maximum pressure located on hips and shoulders (18.5 to 24.5) means a pressure on your skin of 34gr/m² (0.5pounds/inch²).
