Sleep comfort is one of the first words that comes up no matter who is talking about the quality of bedding. Yet in most cases, there are no objective and comparable specifications a sales consultant can use to give customers a well-founded recommendation suited to their individual needs. However supporting the physiological processes that take place in the body when a person sleeps at night are vital. The temperature balance between the human body and the surrounding temperature and warmth and moisture management within the "sleeping den" are key to a good night's sleep. The sleep comfort is defined by Hohenstein Institute, as the ability to maintain a comfortable body temperature during slumber while transporting perspiration away from the body quickly and effectively.
Using ISO 11092, mattresses are ranked on an index imt that goes from 0 to 1, being 1 the maximum and ideal Sleep Comfort.
