Recommendations for choosing an orthopedic pillow
Today, customers are provided with a wide selection of orthopedic pillows of various shapes, lengths, densities, made of various materials. We recommend using the advice of our experts to find the truly suitable option. So, what you need to consider when choosing:
- Shoulder width. Orthopedic pillows have a certain height, which is calculated depending on the width of the shoulders, respectively, the higher the shoulders, the higher the product should be.
- Pose during sleep. People who sleep on their backs can opt for a low option, while sleeping on their sides will require a higher pillow. By the way, many manufacturers produce universal products with two rollers of different heights at once.
- Rigidity and elasticity. A hard mattress will require a high pillow, soft, on the contrary, a low one.
- Manufacturing material. Modern orthopedic pillows are most often made of latex or viscoelastic 'Memory foam'.
- Latex is the natural sap of the hevea tree in a frozen state. It allows the skin to breathe, reduces perspiration, is hypoallergenic, does not create conditions for the development of microorganisms. Latex is soft and elastic to the touch, quickly takes on its original shape.
- 'Memory foam' is widely used all over the world. Customers appreciate this material for its ability to instantly reshape and maintain its shape through the so-called 'memory effect', thereby allowing maximum muscle relaxation during sleep and reducing stress on the neck and spine.
We have compiled a rating of manufacturers who, according to experts and buyers, are the best in their segment.

Our today's rating is opened by a brand originally from Sweden, which has been producing orthopedic products since 1986. The brand is one of the market leaders due to the high quality of its products, as well as constant improvement and expansion of the range.

The brand focuses on anatomy and comfort, not naturalness. Sissel TM pillows have a memory effect and are made from a single piece of polyurethane foam. It is able to conform to the shape of the body by stretching the spine and neck and contributing to better overall health. Doctors safely recommend Sissel pillows for osteochondrosis, headaches, insomnia. Buyers note that the pillows of this brand are soft, comfortable and able to provide comfortable rest for the head and back. The only thing is that you need to get used to the peculiarities of their design, and the addiction can last up to 2 weeks.
Models are presented in sizes S, M, L and also vary in hardness – they can be either quite hard or moderately soft. We liked the manufacturer's attention to detail – from the lock on the cover to the pillow's ability to instantly adapt to the shape of the body.

Orthopedic pillows from the Danish brand Tempur definitely deserve to be included in our rating at the third level. A well-known brand, represented in more than 80 countries, has earned its popularity due to the release of orthopedic pillows created from a unique material. For the first time, this filler was developed by NASA scientists to reduce the pressure on the body during takeoff. Subsequently, the brand's engineers created on the basis of these developments the Tempur material, certified by the international organization Space Foundation.
The filler is made of a resilient synthetic material that is sensitive to ambient and body temperatures. It is able to adjust to the shape of the neck and head by relaxing the muscles. Tempur material is classified as safe, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. The only thing to watch out for is fakes, which differ from the original by the presence of an unpleasant odor, inability to keep their shape qualitatively, and a short service life. Those who bought original products are very satisfied with their quality and ease of use. We met a lot of positive reviews, so we can safely recommend Tempur orthopedic pillows.

We have placed the Italian brand Vefer, specializing in the production of orthopedic pillows made of organic materials, in fourth place in the ranking. Products are made from organic raw materials using the 'green technology' BIOaloe®. And the SET mark means that the manufacturer adheres to the rules of environmental friendliness both in production and in the development of fillers for pillows, due to which the MPC (concentration of harmful substances) is 50% lower than that of other foam materials.
The foam used as a filler is made by the cold method, so its components cannot be heated and, accordingly, do not emit harmful substances and can be used for children and allergy sufferers. Among the company's products are water-based pillows, as well as popular models with a memory effect. These pillows maintain optimal temperature conditions due to ventilated cells and a special foam structure. MemoryForm material is durable and, subject to the operating conditions, can last up to 10 years.

The Italian brand 'Bedding Industries' occupies the fifth position in our expert rating. Our experts have chosen 'Bedding Industries' due to the presence in the range of unique orthopedic gel-filled pillows. The brand was founded in 1986. At the beginning it was a small company with several employees. But gradually the company entered the international level and became the first company to pass European production certification.
Today the 'Bedding Industries' brand is known as a manufacturer of orthopedic mattresses, but the range also includes orthopedic pillows with Innogel® gel filler. This material is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, able to adjust to body temperature. Its principle of action is based on obtaining a refreshing and relaxing effect that relieves pressure on the spine. The only drawback of 'Bedding Industries' pillows, in our opinion, is that they are not easy to find on sale.

The pillows are made taking into account the anatomical features of a person, which allows them to be used for diseases of the spine. Orthopedic pillows from Ascona have a rigid base or frame, so doctors recommend them for diseases of the cervical spine. Each product is tested for quality in its own laboratory. In 2013, the brand was awarded the # 1 Brand in the Healthy Sleep Pillows category. Buyers in reviews share mostly positive impressions of purchasing TM Ascona goods. The main reasons for dissatisfaction are the incorrectly chosen shape and size of the pillow, which, in principle, does not affect the reputation of the company as a whole.

Models have a special shape that is specially selected for a specific situation. Luomma pillows are able to relieve pain, stress and muscle spasms, eliminate discomfort, and improve the quality of sleep.
