PREGNANCY AND BACK PAIN

Back pain is almost assured during pregnancy — studies show between 50 to 70 percent of all pregnant women will suffer pain in their lower back. As the weight of the fetus increases, your center of gravity shifts forward. To compensate for this shift in your posture, you naturally lean back, placing stress on the muscles in your lower back, which can lead to soreness and pain.

And back muscles don’t necessarily go to sleep when you do — they can stay tense if your mattress doesn’t provide proper, continuous support. Your muscles may never have a chance to relax and heal, leaving you to toss and turn at night.

 

THE ULTIMATE PREGNANCY MATTRESS

The challenges of pregnancy can not only cause back pain, but uncomfortable sleep for a variety of reasons — that change as your body changes. The Swedish-made DUX Bed is designed to evolve with you. Its innovative component system easily reconfigures to compensate for your body changes during pregnancy — and back again, making it the ultimate pregnancy mattress.

PASCAL® 
OUR CUSTOMIZABLE
SUPPORT SYSTEM

HOW PASCAL WORKS >>

Our patented Pascal Cassette System sets DUX apart from every other bed on the market. Comprised of interchangeable components, our Pascal System lets you custom configure its parts to match the exact requirements of your individual body size and weight — and to change them when you change.

 

ENGINEERED TO EVOLVE

Adapting DUX to your body as it changes couldn’t be easier. Simply unzip the bed top — underneath, you’ll find a trio of cassettes that provide separate support zones for the shoulders, hips and legs.

As you transition through the stages of pregnancy and your body continues to change in shape and weight, you will quickly learn that the best mattress for pregnancy is one that can easily be reconfigured to match your evolving needs.

And when your body returns to its prior form, simply reverse the process. 

Furthermore, our DUX 8008 model has an additional lumbar adjustment for increased support of needed.

HOW PASCAL WORKS >>

Short On Sleep.
Long On Labor. 

Did You Know?

A study by researchers from the University of California at San Francisco found that women who slept fewer than 6 hours per-night had longer labors and were 4.5 times more likely to have cesarean deliveries. Based on these findings, the researchers recommend that doctors discuss both sleep quantity and sleep quality with their pregnant patients.

The Best Sleep Position

It is commonly accepted that pregnant women should sleep on their side, with their knees and hips bent, and a pillow between the knees to alleviate lower back pressure. Also, sleeping on your left side improves the flow of blood and nutrients to your fetus as well as to your uterus and kidneys. Try to avoid lying on your back for extended periods of time.

Dynamic Support

DUX features a unique, interconnected spring system that adjusts itself to the weight and shape of your body. It moves as you move. It conforms to your changing contours, providing continuous, dynamic support along every point of your body. DUX's patented spring system is flexible enough to let your shoulders and hips sink in, yet resilient enough to rise up and support your lower back. Vital pressure points — especially your spine — are supported in the most ergonomically healthy positions possible, letting your blood circulate freely while your muscles completely relax.

Our bottom layer of springs provides deep suspension. This section absorbs and distributes weight so the bed remains stable when you or your partner move about. 

2.

The middle spring layer delivers continuous lumbar support while rising up to conform to the contours of your body.

 3.

The penultimate layer of a DUX bed is comprised of our customizable Pascal Cassettes. Each cassette is selected to correspond to your individual needs.
