If you are probably like me when you hear Dr. Scholl's, you immediately think of very comfortable foot care insoles. We have all seen their displays and commercials, but would you be surprised if I told you that Dr. Scholl's also makes a line of sleeping products? Technogel Sleeping is part of the Dr. Scholl's family and makes pillows and mattresses to help solve all your sleeping problems. Technogel's technology (try saying that fast five times) deforms 3-dimensionally and reacts differently than other materials used in most mattresses and pillows. By deforming in all three directions (vertical, diagonal, and horizontal) Technogel will actually mold itself to the users body type. Pressure is then evenly distributed along the entire sleeping surface making for a much more comfortable sleep. As if that wasn't already enough to help you sleep better, Technogel is designed to have open air channels to deliver better air circulation. As a result, you will feel the cooling sensation. Technogel Sleeping also realizes that it is not enough to offer just one type of pillow. Not everyone sleeps the same way. They actually have four pillow options available for purchase depending on your sleeping preferences - side sleeper, back sleeper, thick pillow sleeper, ect. If you are having trouble deciding which pillow would be best for you, visit their Pillow Selector page to help make an informative decision.
I have always had trouble falling asleep at night and staying asleep. I am constantly waking up andtossing and turning in the middle of the night to try and a comfortable position. I feel extremely sorry for my wife because my tossing and turning will often wake her up as well. With her working long hours at the hospital and getting very little sleep at home, I often find myself being a good husband by sleeping on the couch so as to not interrupt her sleep. I feel that my current pillow is to blame for most of my restfulness. I never can seem to find that perfect position to help me sleep. I always wished I could find a comfortable pillow to help me sleep and stay asleep at night so I could rejoin Monica back in our comfortable bed.
For my review I was given an Anatomic pillow to try out. This pillow if perfect for people who prefer to sleep in their sides like me. While taking the Technogel pillow out of the box I immediately noticed that it is heavier than your ordinary foam or feather pillows. Even though the pillow is a little heavy due to the gel inside it is extremely soft to the touch and I knew right away I would love sleeping on it. You will still need to cover the pillow with your own pillowcase. The first couple of nights I was worried I might have trouble sleeping on a new pillow so I reluctantly decided it would be best to sleep on the couch to not disturb Monica. To my surprise I actually fell asleep much sooner and did not toss and turn and wake up throughout the night! The pillow was extremely comfortable and provided a cooling sensation for my "hot head." I was in love with the pillow and was ready to put it to the real test of reclaiming my half of the bed. I still remember the first night I sneaked back into the bedroom. Monica had just finished a very tough 12 hour shift and the first thing she said to me was "I am extremely tired and need a good night's sleep. You better not wake me up tonight." She even gave me one of those looks letting me know she was serious. Talk about throwing the Technogel pillow into a tough situation needing to perform! I am happy to report that I quickly fell asleep and did not wake up until my three year old Monkey came in the bedroom and started jumping on the bed. I was lost and did not know what time it was until I rolled over and looked at the clock and found out Monica had already been at work for a couple hours. I found a note on the nightstand saying that I did not wake her up once throughout the night. She did mention however that I was snoring very loudly when she got up for work. I guess the Technogel Pillow is not designed to help with snoring. For me at least I know snoring is a good indicator of a great nights sleep!
