Trial on the Effect of Optically Modified Fiber Mattress Covers on Sleep Disturbances in Patients With Chronic Back Pain

2014-08-27 03:19:38 | BioPortfolio


This is a research study because it is commonly observed that sleep in its quantity and quality is influenced by the type of mattress used at night. A recent study in patients with back pain showed that Waterbeds and Foam mattress did influence back symptoms, function and sleep more positively than did a hard mattress. Pain improves with airbeds compared to regular innerspring mattresses. This study will analyze the effect of optically active particles mattress covers on sleep. The researcher is interested in learning if regular mattress or the study mattress cover is more useful in helping back pain and sleep quality.
