If you are interested in all subjects related to science then you should be interested in this article’s subject. It deals with the previously neglected concept of sleep science. Yes, it is true, like most subjects in life, scientific explorations in the way that men and women sleep have been going on for generations. Particularly in the latter half of the previous century, new investigations were being conducted on the reasons why men and women could not sleep well at night, and in extreme cases, why they were not sleeping at all.
But like the tobacco industry in previous years, there was a lot of denialism and skepticism, purely to allow for large manufacturers and retailers to get on with their business of selling beds and mattresses, no matter whether these beds were healthy to sleep on or not. This sentiment is purposely subjective because this article also wanted to show you just how deep the collective culpability runs in denying hard-working men and women a good night’s sleep.
Today, through more stringent regulation and in close consultation with science stakeholders, more and more men and women have better opportunities to finally get the sleep they were lacking and clearly deserve. This has also led to the creation of innovative mattress and pillow designs as well as a new propagation towards sleeping on natural recliners such as bamboo beds. Interestingly, the scientifically developed and designed mattresses and pillows are influenced by Mother Nature.
More importantly, scientific innovations have focused more on enhancing the sleep ergonomics solutions and taking into account the biomechanics of the human body, particularly when it is stationed, motionless or moving, on a mattress while sleeping.
