Technogel Pillow Review {Plus a Giveaway!}

Recently, I was given the opportunity to sample a product from Technogel®.


According to the company's website (Technogel S.r.l., 2012), "Technogel® started in 1990 with the Royal Medica establishment. At that time, Bayer Material Science used a special "gel" to produce small batches of anti-decubitus cushions for long-stay patients." Once the company realized what the gel's possibilities could lead to, the products they created ranged from wheelchair cushions to office furniture seating, and ergonomic computer accessories to footwear inserts and insoles.

 In less than a decade, Technogel® products morphed into all types of industrial components and bedding products. This prompted the company to create a new division, "called Technogel® Sleeping, that is producting and distributing with its own brand, high-end mattresses and pillows all around the world."

The company is also proud to have its fingerprint in the art world. The company site boasts, "Technogel® is also become a very well-known material in architecture, design, and art. Architects, Designers, and Artists, fascinated by Technogel's® peculiar elastic properties, have chosen to use it to convey symbolic contents and emerging values of new lifestyles in original arrangements. Technogel® products have so far been displayed at important events and venues, such as the MoMa Museum of Modern Art (New York), Triennale (Milan), Fuorisalone (Milan), International Motorshow of Geneve and Tokio and others." (Technogel S.r.l. "About Technogel in a Nutshell." TechnogelSleeping.com. Technogel S.r.l., 2012. Web. 23 June 2012. http://www.technogelsleeping.com/us/about.)

Technogel® isn't only a great company offering innovative and beneficial products, it's also offering a lifestyle. Technogel's® products have improved the lives of many people, and the future can only bring more positive effects. Just look at how it has helped me:


I was ecstatic when Technogel® offered to let me review one of the six pillow models they sell. I felt very qualified and prepared to review this type of product, as I suffer from neck, back and shoulder pain. In fact, I go to Occupational Therapy twice a week to combat this pain. So it is safe to say that I am constantly searching for anything that may offer a long-term solution to my pain issues.

The item Technogel® sent to me is the Contour Pillow. I spoke to Paolo, marketing manager for Technogel®, about my sleep patterns and what I needed from the pillow. Since I sleep in several positions, including my back, sides and stomach, Paolo recommended the Contour model for my specific sleep needs. This pillow is also recommended for those suffering from neck, back or shoulder pain, making it even more perfect for me. 


Paolo really knows his pillows! When I pulled it out to try, I instantly felt like I had melted into the pillow, and had a difficult time wanting to get back up. The pillow conformed to me no matter what position I laid in. Days later, I still have fun squishing the gel on top. I owe many thanks for the relaxed and sleep-filled nights I now enjoy to the Italian geniuses who manufacture this gellin' technology. :)
My pillow arrived inside the box shown above. It was wrapped in plastic for extra protection during shipping. The pillow has a super soft pillowcase, which forms perfectly to the pillow and zips across the underside for easy removal.

The cover is made to fit the pillow so well that it takes almost no effort remove for washing. It also doesn't fight you when you're ready to put it back on. I've had issues with things like this in the past, where it was a nightmare to remove and replace the cover.

The pillow has a memory foam base with a gel top. It isn't a flimsy, light pillow, either. It has a good weight to it. Without actually putting it on a scale, I'd estimate it to weigh about five pounds, making the $169 Queen Size and $199 King Size price tag a little more reasonable and understandable. This is NOT a poorly-made, low-quality product!

Here are some of the key benefits to owning a Technogel® pillow:
  • Pressure Relieving
  • Ergonomic Support
  • Odorless & Hypo-Allergenic
  • Memory Foam Base
  • Soft, Washable Cover
  • 3D Distribution of Body Pressure
  • Postural Support and Alignment
  • Three Years Limited Warranty

  • I absolutely love my new Technogel® Contour Pillow! It has a unique, cooling effect, which keeps me from sweating while I sleep. Many other memory foam models have this problem, but the Technogel® pillow's memory foam base is made to be breathable, and the gel top has a way of keeping you cool while you sleep.

    Overall, I highly recommend this product to my readers. The pillow has given me so much support while I sleep, and allows me to sleep soundly through the entire night. It is the most comfortable part of my day. I look forward to bed time, now, with my pillow waiting to give me a hug every night.
