About Sleep Expert Serena Cole
Can a bed really make a difference in how well a person sleeps?
When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, there’s no question — your mattress matters
The right stuff, they say, is firm enough to offer support to your back, neck, and legs, while still offering some cushion and recoil for comfort.
The three most important things to look for in a mattress are comfort, support, and space.
You want a mattress that is firm enough to distribute your weight or you’ll wake up sore due to your shoulders sagging or your hips sinking. On the other hand, you don’t want to sleep on a board. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, agrees that some amount of firmness is usually the best choice.

About Dux Beds
Duxiana is a Swedish manufacturer has been in business since 1926. Duxiana, often referred to simply as Dux, hand-manufactures bed sets which are some of the most expensive models available in the United States. Dux uses premium materials and very intricate design options to create a truly customizable sleep experience. Some over-complicated from other manufacturers are reduced to their simplest form with Dux beds. As an example, you can control firmness in the Dux 8888 model simply by moving foam sections directly below the cover. Also, the upper layer itself is independently replaceable as needed. Another feature is the adjustable lumbar support, which is simply operated by a hand crank, reducing the number of components which could become damaged or broken.
- Rigorous strength tests ensure the performance of the DUX bed over time.
- Compression Tests
- A compression simulator tests different areas of the DUX bed for pressure against the body, and then compares those tests to tests on other beds. So far, there’s no contest. The pressure against the body in a DUX bed is not only lower, but more evenly distributed
- Sleep Quality Tests
- Scientists tested how deeply you can sleep on a DUX bed by using an EEG to record the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex. DUX scored consistently higher for providing deeper sleep! Those sleeping in a DUX bed reached the Deep Sleep stage faster and remained in Deep Sleep longer, approximately an extra hour each night.
