tempsenseTM is a proprietary combina1on of “phase change materials” that work to create a “thermo-neutral” sleeping surface, keeping the surface of the bed between 82-86 degrees. As the surface of the bed heats up, the TempsenseTM molecules spread out to dissipate heat. As the surface cools, the molecules contract to bring heat inward toward the body. TempsenseTM is crea1ng thermo- neutrality even through the most popularly used protec1ve maDress protectors.
Sleeping comfort is enhanced by balanced pressure, giving the lower back posi1ve pressure and the hips and shoulders lower pressure. This balanced pressure allows the body to turn throughout the night to ensure proper blood circula1on, and increasing deep, uninterrupted sleep.
The Dr. Breus Bed® provides the ideal level of support to avoid 1ght, flexed muscles that can create painful awakenings throughout the night. When the spine is in correct alignment, muscles can more easily relax — promo1ng deep, more restora1ve sleep.
Sound sleep is oMen interrupted by a bed partner turning over or geNng in and out of a bouncy maDress. Dr. Breus designed his beds to reduce excessive movement — crea1ng a peaceful, tranquil sleeping environment.
