Special pillows

Relaxation for head and neck – smart, comfortable, dynamic

Providing support for your head

A high-quality duvet can only fully develop its potential with a good pillow. It is important to consider the ergonomic requirements of the individual person.

The perfect team of duvet and pillow makes your sleep a truly relaxing and sensuous experience from top to toe.

NeckProtect is the world’s first neck support pillow that works where the pain is. It takes human anatomy into account, giving every cervical vertebra exactly what it needs. Night after night, the pillow gives support to the neck vertebrae

C5 to C7 and releases C1 and C2, so that the neck can return to its natural ‘C’ shape. Abnormal postures are gently corrected, taking away the cause of many different types of pain while you sleep.

  • Active support of the lower cervical spine and the spinal discs while relieving the upper cervical vertebrae
  • Anatomically shaped neck support pillow in four levels of firmness
  • Supports the natural lordosis of the cervical spine and gently corrects problem posture
  • Perfect for back and side sleepers
  • Height adjustable with an insert

“Curve of life” – how important a healthy cervical spine is

Our cervical spine protects our sensitive spinal cord and carries tremendous responsibility every day: our heads. A healthy ‘C’ curve in the cervical spine, which is also known as the “curve of life” in the philosophy of American chiropractic, is not only the prerequisite for free movement of our heads, but also for our wellbeing. Losing this natural ‘C’ curve, or lordosis, due to overload or a permanent abnormal position (“smartphone neck”) will often cause pain in the form of:

 

  • Backache
  • slipped discs
  • neck pain and tensioned muscles
  • shoulder pain
  • hip and knee pain
  • joint problems
  • headache and migraine

This is how NeckProtect gently supports the natural ‘C’ curve:

  • The highest point of support is on the lower cervical spine (C5 – C6), where most cases of slipped discs occur.
  • It relieves the pressure-sensitive upper cervical vertebrae Atlas and Axis. When you lie on your side, tension is also relieved in your ears and temporomandibular joints.
  • The unique curved shape of the pillow counteracts the number one problem head posture of everyday life, a straightened cervical spine (“smartphone neck”).
  • The integrated support zone ensures a smooth transition to the thoracic spine when lying on your back.
  • The double curved shape of the pillow and the different heights of the ribs allow you to adjust the level of support on the anatomic “hot spots” (C2 – C7).

Boris Biebl: engineer of NeckProtect

The Boris Biebl ChiroCenter in Bottrop is one of the very few practices in Germany for original American chiropractic, neurochiropractic and sacro-occipital techniques. In 2013, Biebl developed the first truly anatomically shaped pillow that supports healthy lordosis and a side pillow to relax the shoulder girdle – a world’s first! He was granted two international patents for this innovation in 2016 and 2017. In its final stages of development, the pillow was honed to perfection for Centa-Star, and NeckProtect was born!

NeckProtect: Four levels of firmness for your comfort

NeckProtect comes in different pillow foams. Starting from the balanced NeckProtect Ultra, you simply choose whether you want more or less support and how quickly – or slowly – you want your NeckProtect pillow to adjust to your posture when you change position.

Four neck support pillows – four high-tech materials: all NeckProtect pillows and the side pillows are encased in premium covers with a wave-like structure. The covers are washable up to 40°C.

NeckProtect accessory: the side pillow for side sleepers

The raised hand supports of the side pillow prevent twisted shoulders and arms to give deep relaxation to the shoulder girdle, where tension is often stored. It doesn’t matter which side you prefer to lie on: the side pillow has one hand support on either side of the Neck- Protect neck support pillow.

It allows you to surf, read and watch films in perfect relaxation – no more numb fingers or arms that go to sleep. It’s really easy to fix the side pillow to the NeckProtect pillow. The side pillow will not slip out of place, even for active sleepers.

Relax Smartpillow

The first smart pillow that improves your sleep

Can you digitise a pillow? And does it make sense? In collaboration with sleep lab experts and ADVANSA, we answered these questions with Yes and developed this smart pillow, app included. A tiny sensor makes a huge difference between a normal pillow and the Smartpillow. The flat sensor, only a few centimetres in size, is permanently sewn inside the pillow to tell you a number of nocturnal secrets via an app:

As producer in terms of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act ElektroG, we are registered in the German register for waste electric equipment (Stiftung-EAR) with the following registration number:
WEEE reg. no. DE 31994921

Centa-Star Bettwaren GmbH & Co. KG herewith declares that the radio equipment type Relax Smart Pillow iX21 complies with Directive 2014/53/EU. The complete text of the EU declaration of conformity is available under the following link:

https://www.relax-smartpillow.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Relax_Smartpillow_EU-Konformitaetserklaerung.pdf

When are the stages of your deepest sleep? How much do you move when sleeping? How often do you wake up? Do you talk in your sleep or do you snore? While you snuggle into your Relax Smartpillow, it records all this information. Based on your sleep history, the corresponding app gives you tips for a better sleep. You can thus improve your sleep quality within a few weeks and identify possible causes of sleep disorder.
