There are several things to consider when selecting a cervical pillow. The first thing you should know is that most manufacturer claims are not supported by independent research studies. Second, remember that no single pillow is right for every individual, regardless of what a manufacturer claims. The third tip is to realize that the most expensive option might not always be the best.

In order to improve sleep quality, Arrontop has conducted several studies. In this study, 200 subjects were assessed for their natural sleeping posture. Results showed that the supine and side lying positions were alternated about 24 times a night, and high pillows were not suitable for supine sleeping, and low pillows were not suitable for lateral sleeping. 60 subjects were measured in relation to pillow designs that determine pillow size. In the supine position, the pillow height is very different from the height when sleeping on the side, and the rational design of the pillow must be considered. On the basis of the above research results, Arrontop has created a new design concept pillow, with the middle of the pillow low in the supine position, and the sides high in the side position. Innovative pillows and ordinary pillows were used to assess sleep quality. Sleep quality improved significantly with the newly designed pillow, which was patented for innovation.
