Deep Sleep and High Performance

By DUX Design, AB  •  April 4, 2014

At DUX of Sweden, we take sleep seriously. We study it. We measure it. We investigate its every aspect. We’re experts in the mechanics of sleep. We understand the vital role sleep plays in the body’s cycle of healing, growing and rejuvenating. DUX High Performance Sleep Systems are the result of over 85 years of research and development. Our component system provides an unrivaled level of ergonomic support, so you can experience significantly higher quality sleep.

In an independent sleep study conducted by the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, the sleep patterns of individuals using a variety of innerspring mattresses were measured using an EEG to record the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex of the brain. The study demonstrated that DUX users not only reached the Deep Sleep stage of sleep faster, but remained there approximately an hour longer. This is especially beneficial since it is during Deep Sleep that the body and immune system recovers and repairs itself.
