A few months ago I posted a review for Technogel's anatomic pillow by Dr. Scholl's. I used to think that just about all pillows were created equal. Boy was I wrong! I can't even begin to say how much I absolutely love my Technogel pillow. Before the anatomic pillow I always had a tough time falling and staying asleep. Since then I have noticed that I am able to fall asleep much quicker and rarely ever wake up in the middle of the night (unless kids come and wake me up). What strikes me as funny is that before the Technogel pillow I never had dreams at night or at least I could not remember having them once I woke up. After I started using the Anatomic Pillow I began having dreams almost immediately and could actually recall my dreams in the morning! I know that I am getting a better night's sleep and wake up much more refreshed now with thanks to Technogel.
When presented the opportunity to work with Technogel on another product review I jumped at the chance. I had such a fantastic experience with my first pillow that I could not wait to try out another model. Technogel was generous enough to send me a Contour Pillow this time. When taking the contour pillow out of the box I noticed the same quality and materials from the first pillow that changed my quality of sleep forever. I also noticed that it was shaped fairly similar to the anatomic pillow. I knew right away that this was going to be another winner!
All of Technogel's pillows are constructed with their Technogel gel and memory foam. The pillows will actually deform 3-dimensionally and reacts differently than other materials used in most 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 a cooling sensation as soon as you place your head on the pillow.
Even though the pillow comes with a 100% cotton cover it is best to still use one of your own pillowcases as well. A little secret that I discovered to best feel the cooling effects of the gel is to remove the cotton cover and go only with a pillowcase. I noticed when I did this the pillow felt cooler the minute I placed my head down and stayed cooler throughout the night. Long gone are the days of tossing and turning trying to find the cold side of the pillow.
As mentioned earlier, the contour pillow is shaped somewhat similar to the anatomic pillow. I was expecting them to feel the same when I placed my head on them but surprisingly they are actually very different feeling. Although the dimensions are virtually identical, the contour pillow seems to be shallower in the middle. The contour pillow's shape is ideal for people who prefer sleeping on their back. I'm not saying that side sleepers can't use this pillow but personally I would recommend the anatomic pillow for side sleepers and the contour pillow for back sleepers.
I have been extremely impressed by both Technogel pillows so far. If you are in the market for a quality pillow that will last a long time and tremendously improve your sleeping then this stay at home dad recommends that you look into purchasing from Technogel. I know the pillow might be a little pricy at $169 but trust me, and do not let that scare you away from making a purchase. The pillow is worth every penny and more for the quality of sleep you will be getting in return. To purchase a Technogel Pillow you can go to their website and find an authorized dealer. All Technogel Pillows are covered by a two year warranty against defects in material or workmanship starting from your date of purchase.
