We spend about a third of our lives asleep. Sleep is essential – It is as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and breathing, and is vital for maintaining good mental and physical health. Sleeping helps us to recover from mental as well as physical exertion.
Nothing beats quality sleep, and The Cubes, the world’s first cutting edge design enables users to drift in and out of sleep comfortably and quickly. I was able to get my hands on this ‘innovation pillow’ which aims to change the way we look at a good old night’s sleep!
So what is ‘The Cubes’. It is a product of intense research and experiments, and there are four main features which differentiates this pillow from all others:
- AN EFFECTIVE SUPPORT SYSTEM WHICH PROVIDES 360-DEGREE SUPPORT TO USERS
Every night, we move at least 20 times, and this means we need a pillow which can support our weight no matter how we roll. The patented hinge support available on both sides of the pillow elevates the level of support from two-dimensional to three-dimensional. Each cube on the pillow functions as a spring support which can support weight when pressure is applied and bounce back to its original shape when depressed.
- STRESS RELIEVING MEMORY FOAM
The memory foam was designed to protect astronauts from the extreme pressure they experience during launch and landing. The Cubes uses memory foam properties to support your head in the right position and gently support it. This gives you a zero gravity sleeping experience and provides total relaxation.
- BREATHABLE STRUCTURE
Snoring usually occurs when sleeping flat, with the neck not properly supported, causing the airway to be too narrow or even completely closed. The design of The Cubes allows it to provide support with its hinged structure and allows it to respond to your breathing movements when sleeping thereby keeping your airway open, allowing you to breathe smoothly and quietly.
- ANTIBACTERIAL PROTECTION
The Cube is multifunctional graphene nanocomposite foam, and the advantages of this foam are that it provides heat regulation, bacterial resistance, and odour control. Also, the ultra-soft Modal fibre used in the design of the pillowcase is skin-friendly and quick to absorb moisture which provides it with antibacterial properties.
I’ve been using the pillow for the past 2months. It seems odd to say, but the quality of sleep with the cubes does definitely provide a significant improvement. Most noticeably, the cubes offers plenty of air flow into the pillow which prevents the pillow overheating, which means less flipping the pillow to the other side.
Sleeping with a pillow of this quality means you get to enjoy the Deep Sleep Stage which research has shown to provide the most restorative of sleep and as long as you get two hours of this sleep, a refreshing morning is sure. The Cube comes highly recommended especially since it goes for a very cheap price.
