Mattress Matters - Yahoo News Phillipines

Mounting scientific evidence routinely suggests that a good sleep (a combination of depth and duration) has benefits that go beyond the physical and the mental. In a recent study helmed by Amie Gordon, a psychologist at the University of California, Berkeley, a correlation between sleep deprivation and failure in romance has been established. "Poor sleep may make us more selfish as we prioritize our own needs over our partner's," he says to Medical Daily.If we are to spend a third of our life in the bedroom, it makes sense that we devote attention in making it sleep-conducive. Heavy damask curtains shut out light completely for those who want to sleep in total darkness while some may prefer to have a night lamp turned on throughout the night. Possibly the best suggestion I've encountered is to use the bedroom solely for sleeping (well not solely, if you know what I mean). This means no reading, no surfing the Internet, no watching television. This will trick your body to turn on its doze mode as soon as you enter the bedroom.And then there's the quality of the mattress. Good support, breathability and ample firmness are some of the requirements I need to tick when buying a mattress. There are people, however, whose needs go beyond the basic and it's good news that a proud Philippine manufacturer now offers some of the most comfortable and responsive mattresses in the market today.Uratex, under its Premium Mattress line, has recently introduced the Touch Viscoluxe Memory and Senso Memory Foam Mattress which boast of a system that enable them to conform to the contours of the body, hence minimizing pain and other issues such as numbness, fatigue and insomnia. The former combines pocket-spring system and body-molding memory foam while the latter is made of high-quality memory or visco-elastic foam originally developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).Those who require a hospital-quality mattress can find it with Orthocare Mattress, which has the stamp of approval from the Philippine Orthopedic Association. Combining a high-density polyurethane mattress and a multi-zone topper with breathable open-pored cell structure, this mattress promotes utmost comfort for individuals who, due to medical reasons, have to spend most of their time in bed. It doesn't look like it belongs to a hospital though. The mattress features fashionable jacquard-woven damask fabric treated and quilted cover with an elegant, classic design.Those who wake up with itch and rashes may find relief from Purifoam. Treated with Sanitized, the mattress zaps away bacteria, fungi, dust mites, mold, mildew and unpleasant odors, keeping skin safe from these allergy-causing microbes and organisms. Those who feel hot or get sweaty during sleep, now Coolmax Technology Mattress to alleviate them. Its high-performance fabric dries fast, balancing body moisture.The Uratex "Pressure Imaging System" is the solution to those who want to tailor-fit their body to their mattress. Measuring pressure, comfort and support, the system utilizes custom-built software that graphically renders the body when lying down, measures various pressure points and determines the best mattress based on the data. Now, who says that sleep can't be re-engineered?

How Nasa Inspired Paul George's New Nikes
Since 1958, NASA has been responsible for some of the greatest scientific feats in modern history - the 1969 Apollo 11 mission that landed the first people on the moon in and the STS-95 mission that sent 77-year-old John Glenn back into space come to mind. NASA's major contributions to humankind are without question, but it's also important to remember the little things.NASA recently teamed up with Nike to create the PG 3 X NASA. The shoe was inspired by NBA All-Star Paul George's love for NASA. The material and colors on the shoe are some of the very same featured on space suits. The kicks retailed for $120 before selling out almost instantly.The PG 3 isn't NASA's first foray into footwear. While the famed 1969 Apollo 11 mission served as an inspiration for an entire generation to dream of reaching the stars, one person had dreams of filling sneakers with air. That man was former NASA engineerFrank Rudy. After Apollo 11, the agency used a process called "blow rubber molding" to create hollow shoe soles that could be filled with shock absorbing material. This technology was originally used to produce safer flight helmets, but Rudy knew it could be used to help runners. In 1971 Rudy contacted Nike and pitched them the idea of putting shock absorbing air cells in the soles of its running shoes - and the Nike Air was born.Here's a look at other ways NASA tech and engineers have helped humankind take some giant everyday steps. And no, despite popular opinion NASA had no hand in creating Tang or Teflon.Memory foamIf you enter the sandman's sweet nightly embrace on a memory foam mattress, you have NASA to thank. That's right, the same folks that put the first human on the moon also puts millions to sleep every night. The material was first created to help keep test pilotswell cushionedduring flights, but soon went on to cushion everything from theater seats, football helmets and of course beds.Precision GPS navigationGlobal positioning system was implemented in the late 1970s after decades of work by scientists such asRoger L. EastonandDr. Gladys West. The technology that was initially designed for military pursuits would later be used by motorists across the world. Uncorrected GPS can be off by as much as15 meters. During the 1990s NASA, introduced Precision GPS, which is accurate within 5 centimeters.LASIKYears ago, wearing glasses seemed to be the resigned fate of everyone of a certain age. Now LASIK surgery uses laser pulses to reshape a patient's cornea. Involuntary eye movements are known as saccadic movements. For a LASIK procedure to be successful, those saccadic movements, which can occur over 100 times per second, must be tracked. In the 1980s, NASA helped develop a military tracking system calledLADAR. Later that same technology was turned into a LADARVision which is a USDA approved system used during LASIK eye surgery to help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.DustbusterThat's right, NASA had a hand creating dust's mortal enemy - the Dustbuster. Black & Decker (SWK) refined a portable, self-contained drill developed by NASA and refined it until the cordless mini vacuum known as the Dustbuster came to be in 1979.Invisible Bracesif you have a sharp smile because of invisible braces, you have NASA to thank. In the mid-1980s dental companies were searching for a material that was strong yet transparent material as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Years earlier NASA research led to the creation of atransparent ceramic material that was stronger than steel and smooth to the touch. This technology would later be used to create invisible braces.Enhanced camera techEver taken a picture with a GoPro, DSLR or cell phone? If the answer is yes, then you have been the beneficiary of NASA technology. NASA invented theCMOSactive pixel sensor which resides in most digital camera-enabled devices. The same tech is also used at your local dentist office to take X-rays of your pearly invisible-braces-straightened whites.Reggie Wade is a writer for Yahoo Finance.
