Reducing Pressure & Pain

Choosing a new sleep surface could be the answer to relieving your back and joint pain. See why airweave's firm and supportive line of mattresses might be the right choice so you wake up with less pain.

Dr. Koji Kanoka is an orthopedic surgeon and professor of sports sciences at Waseda University in Tokyo. Dr. Kanoka has been involved in the education & research of sports medicine and served as a doctor of the JOC HQ for the London Olympics.

I have received many complaints from top athletes competing around the globe that the hotel beds are too soft that they sink in, or their lower back hurts when they wake up in the morning. When this happens, doctors will often recommend trying a firmer surface, sleep on their side, or place a pillow below their knees to give support to their back. No one has conducted any scientific analysis on how mattress affects one's spine alignment. So we took an MRI of the lower back when sleeping on different surfaces - soft mattress, airweave Top Mattress, and the floor (no mattress).

We found that the angle of sacrum gets steeper on a soft mattress than on airweave top mattress or on the floor which means more arching caused by the hip sinking into the soft mattress.These findings suggest that airweave may help prevent lower back pain with better lower back support, keeping lower back arching minimum, when compared to a softer mattress.
