Advice for purchasing a cervical pillow: how much does it have to cost to be considered valid?
The price of an ergonomic cervical support can vary greatly depending on the type of material, size and brand. Advice on purchasing a neck pillow should always be taken with a pinch of salt. In general, this type of orthopedic memory foam or latex pillows are more expensive than goose down or polyester fiber pillows. The price may also vary depending on additional features, such as the presence of a removable cover or a ventilation system.
Generally speaking, a good quality neck pillow can cost from 50 to 100 euros. However, it is also possible to find cheaper pillows, which can cost from 20 to 50 euros. It is important to choose the right pillow that is suitable for your sleeping position and your needs. If you suffer from neck problems, it is advisable to consult a doctor before purchasing a neck pillow.
What causes this difference in price range?
- Composition materials: there are certified quality materials, and non-certified and not even very well-worked materials.
- The shape: generally the shape and materials are the result of laboratory studies and research which have their own initial cost.
- Coverings: today many companies are continually looking for hypoallergenic and antibacterial coverings, which are at the same time easy to remove and wash.
- Density: it may seem like an empty word but the density of the material determines the hardness or otherwise of the support and consequently its effectiveness. This always goes hand in hand with research and laboratory tests to determine what the right consistency is.
- Eco-sustainability: the cushion is a long-lasting non-compostable product in itself but its composition materials and production can in some way fall within environmental sustainability.
We at Cipoxpat have managed to introduce into the market what we believe is the right compromise between quality, price and sustainability of materials. We started from the awareness of the importance of using a cervical pillow , passing through the quality of the materials and the right density, to then end up determining a competitive price after countless tests of products made and optimization of production and shipping routes. To date we boast a product totally made in Italy with a Tencel covering which is a fiber coming from the zero-impact processing of eucalyptus fibers with the recovery of 99% of the materials.
We also want to remember what are the main features to evaluate when choosing a cervical pillow:
- Sleeping position: If you sleep on your back, you need a pillow that is high and supports the natural curve of your spine. If you sleep on your side, you need a pillow that is thinner and supports your head and neck. If you sleep on your stomach, you need a very thin pillow or not even use a pillow at all.
- Material: Neck pillows can be made of different materials, including memory foam, latex, goose down, polyester fiber and cotton. The best material depends on your preferences and needs. For example, memory foam is a material that adapts to the shape of your head and neck, while latex is a cooler and more breathable material. Memory was designed and still used by NASA, this already says a lot about what is the best material available on the market.
- Additional features: Some neck pillows may have additional features, such as a removable cover, a ventilation system or a lumbar support system. These features can be helpful in improving the comfort and support of the pillow.
If you are looking for a good quality cervical pillow, it is advisable to take into consideration that behind the support there are a series of studies done in terms of laboratory tests, search for the right material and assembly tests. All this cannot make it a cheap pillow and find it for a few euros in the supermarket near your home. You will need to contact a specialized retailer or manufacturer who will be able to recommend the cushion best suited to your needs and provide information on the prices and characteristics of the different models. What we would like to advise is not to stop at the price alone because this can lead to a saving of 4 or 5 euros or more, only to then realize that you have bought a cushion of little value and which does not perform the function for which it was purchased .
