Technogel Mattresses are ergonomically designed with the 3D conformability of TechnoGel's exclusive, advanced gel technology to provide the benefits of optimal weight distribution and body contouring. Technogel is a soft-solid material that "moves" in 3D up and down, and from side to side, while other comfort materials simply "compress" or "collapse" as air is expelled.
Mattress Barn is the exclusive retailer of Dr. Scholl's TechnoGel Mattresses and Pillows in Florida.
Dr. Scholls, a partner of TechnoGel, features their 3D conformable, soft-solid Gel in some of their in-soles.
Academic researchers demonstrated that people lying on Dr. Scholl's TechnoGel surfaces enjoy longer time - up to 45% - in deeper sleep phases than people lying on other materials; and less micro awakenings - up to 33%*
Ease of Movement During Sleep:
Scientific research confirms that moving 6-8 times per night while sleeping is natural and healthy to maintain basic muscular activity. Therefore, people should use mattresses that do not inhibit movements. TechnoGel is able to provide optimal weight distribution, without restricting movement.
During the night the body produces heat, which increases mattress surface temperature. The body starts sweating to counterbalance overheating, which tends to disturb sleep. Lying on surfaces that distribute the body heat leads to a deeper, more restful sleep. Dr. Scholl's TechnoGel is conductive drawing heat away from the body and distributing it throughout the TechnoGel surface.
