I chose the Anatomic pillow design . It is designed for predominantly side and back sleepers. I love to sleep on my right side. I literally curl up on my side with a good book and relax and let the world dissolve away. I used to use a memory foam pillow that my sister in law gave me. She said it was too dense however I loved the support that it gave my head and neck. The Technogel pillow has close to the same design in that it provides the head and neck support however the Technogel pillow one ups the regular old memory foam pillow in that it has a layer of technogel over the top of the memory foam and a lovely 100% cotton cover over all that cleverness.
The gel has a cooling effect that comes from the excellent heat dispersion through their thermal regulation design. So no more flipping the pillow to get the cool side. Its all about comfort. I have woken in the middle of the night too hot or too cold etc. This neat design lessons those occurrences and with sleep, every minute counts!
The technogel deforms 3 dimensionally so that the pressure of our heads and necks are evenly distributed throughout the entire contact surface. What this means is that you are far less likely to get a stiff spot from laying in one position too long on the pillow. You know, that crick in your neck that can happen. I used to get that all the time until I started using a supportive pillow. The Anatomic pillow is perfect for this kind of support. This has been even more important lately as I have been practicing inversions in my yoga practice and sometimes I go to bed with a sore and tired neck. All I need is a little relaxation and support and I am good as new in the morning.
As with anything new we try it can take a few days and up to a week to get used to a new pillow for example. It took me about 2 days to get used to it. How and where to put my hands etc. Its not as tall as my other pillows that I used to use stacked up which in hindsight was hard on my neck. It was a smooth transition now and I am enjoying my Technogel pillow every night.
Is the technogel pillow worth the cost of about $150? I think it is absolutely. We want good clean food and drinks and we buy workout clothes and bags and all kinds of things in the name of health. I am strong believer that sleep is a crucial aspect of our health and our bedding is an investment in ourselves.
