FACTS ON WATERBEDS
We the people of the Rubber Match have
found a better way to sleep and we feel since you're sleeping a third of your life you
should get the same beneficial night's sleep we are getting. We have compiled the
following information, hoping to give you a clearer insight on the facts about waterbeds.
An ordinary bed
is firm and flat, which causes pressure points and that leads to a cut off of blood flow.
Your sleep is disturbed because you toss and turn 50 to 80 times a night.
a flotation support surface which contours to your exact shape, preventing pressure
points. That means you sleep virtually motionless, undisturbed all through the night.
Mattress manufacturers have brainwashed the public to believe that firmness means support.
But it does not. If it did, we would all sleep on concrete slabs. Now, sleep experts
recognize that perfect support comes from a surface that contours to your exact shape. For
this reason, waterbeds are being singled out as one of history's most notable
contributions to the quality of sleep.
HOW AN ORDINARY BED CHEATS YOUR BODY
Every night you go through a sleep cycle composed of four stages. The two most important
are REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep, when your dreams take place, and Delta Sleep, the
deepest stage, when your physical and mental energies are recharged.
Every time you toss or turn, if you're in REM or Delta sleep, you lose their beneficial
Your ordinary bed is flat and rigid, so only parts of your body are supported. This
creates pressure points which cut off your blood flow. So you must toss and turn; you have
to work to sleep.
No wonder so many people awaken feeling groggy, achy and irritable.
THE WATERBED SUPPORTS YOUR WHOLE BODY EVENLY
Even the most expensive ordinary beds cannot support the small of your back, where you
need support the most. A waterbed is the only type of bed that can possibly support the
small of your back, because it contours to the exact shape of your back.
THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS NOT POSSIBLE WITH ANY ORDINARY BED
Flotation sleep has proven beneficial to many people with back problems, aching muscles,
allergies, insomnia, nervous tension and dependence upon barbiturates.
YOU WILL NOT GET SEASICK
When you climb onto a flotation bed for the first time you will experience an undulation
motion. This subsides within 30 seconds. Sleeping on a floatation supported surface will a
first be a different sensation. Once your mind and body adjust, you will experience the
highest level of comfort possible.
RELAX WITH SOOTHING WARMTH OR REFRESHING COOLNESS
The waterbed is heated (of cooled) by adjustable, automatic controls. They keep the bed at
the temperature most exactly suited to your body.
WEIGHT IS NOT A PROBLEM
The weight of a waterbed is distributed over an area of 30 square feet or more and the bed
still weighs less per square foot than your TV. set or refrigerator.
The waterbed manufacturers association sponsored an engineering study to get the facts
about waterbed weights versus floor loading. The survey found that if a home is
structurally sound and constructed to local building codes there would be no problem.
High quality sleep adds to your productivity, your mental ability your sense of well-being
enrich your life with the best sleep you ever had on a waterbed. The Rubber Match thinks
you're worth it.
