A good mattress can make all the difference in reducing back pain and improving overall health - but what about when you have to leave bed and go about your day?
More New Zealanders than ever are working from home, but not everyone has access to an ergonomically designed office chair, meaning any back or muscle issues could become exacerbated with long stints sitting.
Now the Kiwi company behind the revolutionary Fullair mattress has released a range of cushions, made from the same innovative material, so you can keep the same level of comfort wherever you are.
The secret comes from Fullair's unique material - thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPEE), which is lightweight, breathable and highly resistant, meaning it keeps its firmness even after years of use.
Fullair founders Chris and Frank told Newshub the cushion and mattress are designed to be used in tandem to keep users comfortable around the clock.
"When people use both the Fullair mattress and the Fullair cushion, they get support and maintain proper posture day and night. So the support continues throughout the day, even when they leave their bed."
Whether it's a long commute to the office in a cramped car or sitting at your dining room table, the Fullair cushion can transform the comfort level of any surface
Once you knock off for the day, Chris says a Fullair mattress has the same benefits of the cushion but dialled all the way up.
"The Fullair material cushions the body in all the right places - think neck, back, hips - all the while offering you support. It keeps your spine properly aligned, nothing is thrown off, balance your muscles and ligaments get to relax and repair."
While some mattresses force you to make a trade off between being comfortable and gentle on your back, Fullair doesn't force you to make any compromises. With three adjustable firmness levels based on your needs, there's a Fullair mattress to suit everyone.
"The material is nothing like what we've seen being used in a mattress before. The material is so soft and yet so firm, so comfortable and yet so resilient. With Fullair, you get the best of both worlds."
The name Fullair should be taken quite literally, as both the mattress and cushion are 90 percent air. This has multiple benefits, not least of which is that the material is easy to keep cool, perfect with a scorching summer on the horizon.
"In order to enter the deepest stages of sleep, your body has to cool down and stay cool. So if you have a mattress that doesn't allow for airflow or the air circulation is at a bare minimum level, you may get hot and end up sleeping poorly and waking up more," says Frank.
Regular airflow also keeps the material free of mould and dust mites, ensuring a healthier night's sleep while helping prolong its use.
Fullair products aren't just better for you, they're better for the environment. Every component is 100 percent recyclable, and with up to 300,000 mattresses heading to landfill each year, it's easy to see why the company's motto is 'a better sleep and a lighter footprint'.
If you're on the fence about whether to try out the cushion or the mattress, Chris says there's no risk to jumping in.
"We know you can't figure out if it's improving your comfort in just one week, that's why we don't offer a 10 day guarantee, we offer 100 day risk-free guarantee," says Chris.
