We’ve all had times when it seems like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. On those days, we shuffle into the bedroom at night feeling the effects of that pressure, and not just on our spirit.
Science tells us that on good days and bad, the weight (or the pull, actually) of gravity compresses the flexible discs in our spine throughout the course of the day. In fact, if you spend most of your waking hours upright, you are probably as much as a centimeter shorter at bedtime than you are when you get up in the morning! In other words, your spine takes a beating every day.
Fortunately, Magniflex has… got your back. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
Magniflex: Italian Excellence in Sleep Support for More Than 50 Years
Magniflex is an Italian company that has been continually improving mattress technology for more than five decades. Founded in the 1960s by Giuliano Magni, the company’s first mattresses were produced in a small workshop. The combination of high-quality materials, sophisticated craftsmanship, and innovative thinking quickly earned Magniflex a reputation as a leader in the industry.
Today, the company produces a wide range of mattresses that focus on different attributes including:
- Temperature regulation
- Spine/muscle stretching
- And many more…
Its products incorporate a variety of materials to achieve these goals, such as:
- Camel wool
- And the list goes on…
Magnistretch: Endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association
As the only mattress endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the aptly named Magnistretch gives your spine and muscles a healthy and relaxing stretch while you sleep. Using patented technology developed in partnership with mechanical engineering experts at the University of Zaragoza in Spain, the mattress incorporates inner layers of Magnifoam Elioform and Eliosoft with special laser cuts and shapes to generate a pleasant stretching effect.
When you sleep on a Magnistretch, your body’s own weight, properly channeled by the mattress, provides the energy needed to decompress your spinal column, increase the space between your vertebrae, and relieve muscle tension. In fact, the mattress moves up to 1.5 inches as you lay on it overnight. The ACA-certified benefits of the Magnistretch support deeper, more restful sleep. It’s up to you how to leverage your invigorating nights to make the most of the days that follow!
Ongoing Innovation in Mattress Technology
With Magniflex having developed a line of 170 highly regarded products, you might think the company would kick back and enjoy its success. However, that’s not how Magniflex operates. Their research and development teams are continually at work looking for new ways to improve the sleep experience.
Take the company’s Dual Core technology for example. Recognizing that couples often have differing support needs, Magniflex took an innovative approach and produces select queen and king mattresses with cores that are split in two and can be flipped to provide the softer or firmer support that a person needs on their side of the bed to get the best night’s sleep.
And support is just one of the company’s focus areas. Temperature is another important factor in getting restful sleep. That’s why Magniflex continues to explore new methods of temperature regulation. On the Magnistretch mattress, for instance, the cover combines soft natural viscose and Outlast®, a specialized fabric that absorbs excess heat. It also has breathable, micro-perforated side panels that increase airflow.
A Worldwide Reputation for Quality
How can you be sure that a company produces high-quality products that perform as advertised? One measure you can trust is worldwide adoption. If people around the globe, in different climates and with different sleep needs and preferences, all find “common ground” in a particular mattress, you can be confident it will meet your requirements.
Magniflex products are used by more than 35 million people in 98 countries worldwide. They are the choice of over 500 hotels and are sold by more than 4,000 retailers. To support this loyal following, the company produces more than 10,000 mattresses to its exacting standards every day. They say “the numbers don’t lie,” and in this case they tell a very compelling story!
Sleep is not a Luxury
With every new scientific study on sleep that is published, it is clearer what a critical role a good night’s rest plays in our overall physical health as well as our mental and emotional wellbeing. It seems that Giuliano Magni was ahead of his time in emphasizing the importance of sleep in supporting quality of life. Today, the Magnistretch mattress is actually used in Europe as a “medical device” of sorts, and Magniflex is a leading voice in the conversation about having a better life through better sleep.
Magniflex and the Environment: A Company That Sleeps Well at Night
It’s not surprising that a company so focused on helping people “live their best life” has such a deep concern for the health of the planet. Magniflex has a number of programs enacted to promote sustainability and minimize the company’s impact on the environment.
For example, it uses photovoltaic panels to help reduce its CO2 emissions and also patented a process for vacuum packaging its products to reduce its shipping volume by as much as 90 percent. As a result, it can ship 13 mattresses in the space occupied by three mattresses shipped the traditional way. This means fewer delivery vehicles and fewer emissions.
The company’s commitment to protecting the environment is also evident in two important certifications. Recognition by OEKO-TEX® guarantees that its finished products are free of materials that are toxic to people or the planet. GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification, which is issued by the Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification, indicates that the fabrics used in the Tuscany line are made of 100 percent organic materials, which is better for consumers and for the environment.
