The Memory Foam Contour Pillow Has A Gentle Support For Sensitive Neck Conditions Like Arthritis & Whiplash

Premium quality and American manufactured foam to precise specifications, the memory foam contour pillow improves comfort while sleeping with soft support, giving greater pressure point relief, superior weight distribution, and open cell, non-molded, breathable foam.

Measures approximately 20″ L x 15″ W with 4″ and 5″ contour lobes. Fitted Cotton/Poly blend cover included. The functional height depends on your weight as the pillow reacts to allow maximum postural alignment and is designed for both back and side sleeping positions. Most will use the 4 inch side, however, some like the feel of the 5 inch lobe. Because the contours are shaped differently, some find the higher side is better for side sleeping or for use on the back as a therapy pillow. Do what works best for you.

Open Cell Memory Foam with an ergonomic design formulated for optimum therapeutic benefit; the pillow is highly recommended for sensitive neck pain conditions. The foam is 100% Made in the USA and incorporates a combination of properties that provide the perfect blend of support and comfort for those who do not like firm pillows.

By reacting to your specific neck and head features, the memory foam contour pillow surrounds your spine with comforting Open Cell Memory Foam and allows maximum postural strain and inflammatory pain relief. Many memory foam pillows use a high density with loads of harmful chemicals that forces your neck to conform to the pillow. The density of some high end memory foam pillows allows them to become too stiff when cooler temperatures exist and are slow to react to movements. By using state of the art materials with specifically formulated qualities such as density, percent of indent force deflection, tear strength and elongation percentage, the memory foam contour pillow provides soothing relief.

As compression increases, the open cell is not molded to form a skin. This improves thermoconductivity to remove heat more efficiently. The unique non-molded, open cell design supports air and moisture movement creating a cooler night’s sleep with improved blood flow and oxygen exposure.

The compression abandons typical slow reacting, long compression properties for a quicker reacting support that rapidly accommodates and changes. The memory foam reacts more like higher quality latex, yet retains the soothing adapting and conforming qualities of memory foam.

The more chemicals put into a pillow, the less it can use it’s natural materials for support and comfort. By eliminating many chemicals from the manufacturing process, it produces a cleaner, healthier and high performance pillow that you can use in confidence.

The quick reacting foam provides better spinal stabilization, breathable (non-molded), not too soft and not too firm. For those with neck conditions, we try to get that “sweet spot” between comfort and support. We also believe the only skin on your pillow should be yours.

This is the pillow I use most of the time. The memory foam contour pillow is the one that allows me to wake with a stiff neck less often than other pillow. My neck is very sensitive. I have had cervical disc herniations, neck injuries, and now suffer from advanced degenerative disc disease. This pillow really helps!

For acute neck pain conditions, I find the memory foam contour pillow to be outstanding. If you have suffered a whiplash injury or sprain and strain type injury, this pillow is contoured with a soft, yet supportive memory foam that has just the right density and compression for a good night sleep. Additionally, conditions like advanced degenerative disc disease, which I suffer from, can benefit from this pillow. It is supportive enough without being too firm and I also recommend it for temporomandibular joint problems (tmj) due to it’s softer quality. Additionally, there is no “break in” period and the pillow reduces adaptation time noted in many foam and fiber pillows.

If you like a firm pillow, this is not for you. It uses a softer memory foam that is more breathable than most memory foam pillows. The shape and size is great for older teens and adults. When I travel, this is the pillow I take. It can be compressed to fit in a relatively small area, and expands to full size when needed.

The pillow comes with a cover that is very soft and soothing and is zippered for removal when cleaning. It is not thick to mask the foam; it is the foam that is important, not a thick, plush cover. It is comfortable and I do not use a cover over it – although you can if you like.

The memory foam contour pillow is much less reactive to temperature than typical memory foam pillows. You may note that with many memory foam pillows, especially higher density and lower compression pillows like TempurPedic, they can be much harder when the temperature is cooler. This is promoted as being “temperature sensitive” and beneficial, however, lying on a hard pillow and waiting for it to soften from body temperature is not necessarily advantageous. Some memory foam pillows may even break under pressure when cold and hard! While this pillow will retain the firmer when cold and softer when warm, the reaction is less than most.

The greater displacement is beneficial for neck pain as it accommodates many distortions of the cervical spine to help stabilize an injury during the acute stage. The acute stage is the first couple of weeks when there is inflammation and pain present from a recent injury or flare-ups of an existing condition like arthritis.

The pillow is not die-cast. Foam pillows that are die-cast have a “skin” on them which is said to improve the durability, however, this method restricts the yield of the pillow, interfering with the pillow’s deflection ability, rebound properties, and restricts the ability of the pillow to breathe.

For the price and considering it is not a cheap import, it is a great pillow to start. If you like a very plush feel, you will find the memory foam contour pillow very comforting.
