The Falcon Sport Mattress has been conceived to address the issues raised in the Facts about Sleep based on The Science of Sleep for the Elite Sports Person.
For a sport mattress to truly work we have to understand how sleep works and how we function when we are deprived of sleep. The importance of sleep cannot be stressed enough for all of us in all different walks of life.
Where sleep can really affect our performance can be measured in the World of Sport.
This is where we need our bodies and brains to work in harmony and at their optimum functioning levels to be the best at whatever our chosen Sport is.
Most Elite Sportsmen need to be able to concentrate, push their bodies to the limit and still have the ability to recover fully from bursts of ‘over exertion’.
If the body is injured we need it to recover quickly and effectively to be able to return to the chosen Sport as soon as possible. Long gaps in training can result in a lack of fitness this can then be a major problem in competing at a High Class Standard for the Elite Sportsman.
How quickly the body repairs can be scientifically related to the body’s ability to sleep properly and repair whilst asleep.
So the sport mattress has to perform at an optimum level of comfort and to maintain the body core temperature at a lower level so the brain recognizes, sleep mode.
If we train hard we need to sleep equally as well balancing the body and brain to rest, work and play.
The Falcon Sport Mattress has been clinically proven to provide unbeatable pressure relief for its user. This technically advance design will ensure a comfortable night sleep and support enabling you to wake completely refreshed the next day. Click here for testing results.
Sleep, The Science of Sleep, was really only researched from the early ‘50’s when REM (rapid eye movement) was discovered in 1953. In this state we dream the most and sleep the deepest and where the most positive and restorative effects of sleep occur.
Sleep is vital to our lives in so many different ways. We heal the body and the brain consolidates memories whilst we sleep. This means the brain needs sleep to learn effectively.
Lack of sleep diminishes your attention, concentration, thereby affecting your problem solving abilities.
The phrase ‘beauty sleep’ is based on the science of lack of sleep, as the body releases increased levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, which breaks down collagen and causes wrinkles!
Humans will die from sleep deprivation before they will from food deprivation.
The 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spillage off Alaska, the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster and the Chernobyl nuclear accident have all been attributed to human errors in which sleep deprivation played a major role.
The National Roads and Motorists Association (NRMA) estimates fatigue is involved in 1 in 6 fatal road accidents.
So we have the technical data, a Foam Converter who has been working with foam since 1958 and an ex Academy football player, Adam Oldham.
Drawing upon both of their experiences the Falcon Sport Mattress was conceived.
The foam used is widely recognised amongst the Medical fields for its consistent performance and advanced support performance. The superior postural support is enhanced by the castellation system that is cut into the top surface of the foam. The British National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) commissioned the Royal College of Nursing Quality Improvement Programme to confirm the use of higher grades of foams to help prevent ulcers or their escalation and their findings formed the basis for the Clinical Guidelines, issued Sept 2005, reviewed May 2011.
