Sleep Posture and Spinal Alignment


Good quality sleep forms the backbone of good spinal health. That’s good news — after all, acquiring the best mattress for back pain is well within your control. When you consider the constant stress your spine endures every day you owe it to yourself to protect it at night.

We feel The DUX Bed is the best bed for back pain, not only because it aligns your spine through dynamic contouring support, but also because it can be customized to the requirements of your body. With this, your back muscles not only get the relief they need, but a consistent opportunity to heal.

Transcend Firm or Soft

When selecting a mattress, most people equate firmness with support, and softness with comfort. However, the best method for evaluating a mattress is to examine how it supports the spine. Maximum comfort and health can only be achieved if your muscles can completely relax and your spine is supported in proper alignment.

Studies show that if a mattress is too 
firm it forces your body to conform 
to it. DUX is just the opposite – 
it conforms to you.

When a mattress is too soft, 
your body sinks into a hammock position, 
causing your spine to curve unnaturally.

DUX contours to your body, supporting 
the entire length of your spine so it can 
rest in the most natural, healthiest 
position possible.

We’ve Got Your Back


According to medical research, over 80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. The chairs we sit in, the shoes we wear, the sports we play, the stress in our lives — all contribute to back pain. And back muscles don’t necessarily go to sleep when you do — they can stay tense if your mattress doesn’t provide proper, continuous support.

Learn what types of activities or sleep positions might be putting pressure on your mid-back and causing pain.

Did you know that about 80% of adults will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives?

Why is sleeping on your side the best position?

"Side sleeping is the best position and here's why. It's the only position that allows the spine to straighten out. There's also very little pressure on the spine when you lay on your side. If you sleep in a fetal position, it takes even more pressure off your lower back."

Up to 10% More Deep Sleep Each Night*

Researchers at The Karolinska Institute, the prestigious medical university that awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, performed a study investigating the effect different types of mattresses had on the body and sleep quality. 

Their results showed that those who slept on a DUX bed not only fall asleep faster, but remained in deep sleep longer – a good thing since deep sleep has been proven to be the only sleep stage where muscles can heal and repair themselves.

In an independent sleep study conducted by the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, the sleep patterns of individuals using a variety of innerspring mattresses were measured using an EEG to record the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex of the brain. The study demonstrated that DUX users not only reached the Deep Sleep stage of sleep faster, but remained there approximately an hour longer. This is especially beneficial since it is during Deep Sleep that the body and immune system recovers and repairs itself.
