Why you should have a mattress with a washable cover

Would you consider to buy a pair of pants or a shirt which you cannot wash? Silly question, you probably think and you’re fully right! However, how come that day by day probably thousands of people on this globe decide to buy a new mattress that does not have a removable and washable cover?   Dust Mites in optical expansion The average period of use of a mattress is far above 10 years and you may imagine that there are many different kind of particles soiling the cover: Normal dust which is in the air, dust from the dust mite population on your mattress (the mattress is a preferred place to be for dust mites), urea that everyone emits by sweating and by the 0,3 to 0,5 liters of moisture one is evaporating through the skin every night - does not sound very appealing, does it?   

What's so different with adjustable beds from Switzerland?

Adjustable beds create different kind of associations in people's minds. Many think that this is something for elderly or ill people which is not completely wrong indeed. But we should not exclude all those who expect a little more from their bed than just sleeping in it - and these expectations are not depending on age or physical conditions. Enjoy the video that demonstrates the functions and benefits of Switzerland's most sphosticated adjustable bed base, the Bicoflex M4:

Why bed climate is key for good sleep

Most people being asked what matters when it comes to a good bed would say it must be comfortable - and what they mean is ergonomic comfort. This is quite similar for most bed producers who strongly focus on developing good ergonomic properties in their products. There is nothing wrong about that of course, but it's not enough. There is a dimension we can name "Bed Climate" and it is not the climate that describes the relation between those sharing the bed. In fact, it is the micro-climate between your mattress and your duvet which is completely different from the room climate outside of your bed. What's really cool about it: You can take control if you want to continue to sweat like in a jungle or to feel perfectly fine as you would be at a Californian beach with a crispy summer breeze.

The next big thing in the bedding industry - intelligent beds

If you think your dog will one day become intelligent enough to get your work done when resting on your  intelligent bed, well, that’s not quite what we’d expect from a smart bed in the future. What you may expect though is a breakfeast recommendation via your handy based on the weight you’ve lost during the night. Maybe even in correlation with your ideal weight or even  taking your current digestive activity into account. Too Bold? Well, today's digital transformation, the Internet of Things as well as Nano-technology trigger the bedding industry to develop beds that are more than just „plain comfortable“.
