Ergonomic Life International are the global marketer and licensor of revolutionary Ergolife beds.
With over 30 years’ experience in the bedding industry, Ergonomic Life International are pioneers of healthy sleep solutions.
Identifying a gap in the bedding industry for scientifically based and independently tested supportive bed design, CEO and bedding engineer Mario Piraino, applied the principles of ergonomics to bedding creating the first and only ergonomic bed.
Today, Ergonomic Life International are leaders in the design and development of ergonomics in bedding.
The term ‘ergonomics’ comes from the Greek words ergo and nomos, meaning natural laws of work. It is the science of designing products to suit people and their lifestyles, focusing on improving interactions with every day products.
Ergonomically designed beds apply known and tested ergonomic principles to the design and development of beds. Such beds are designed to relieve stress on the body by distributing weight and supporting the natural body alignment during sleep.
Even with comfort layers, conventional beds will not be:
Based on the science of physics and engineering and initially applied to the design of the environment for astronauts enduring the impacts of force, zero stress refers to the design of a structure to distribute the user’s weight to reduce stress on the body.
In a standing position a neutral posture is achieved where the spine is naturally straight in the vertical plane and the hips and shoulders are straight in the horizontal plane. Of course, this assumes the body is symmetrical where there are no underlying pathologies such as scoliosis. It is assumed that a neutral posture imposes the least amount of stress on the vertebral column (spine).
There is no doubt the importance of comfort in bedding cannot be ignored, but comfort is more than just how a bed feels when you lay on it. Comfort is an outcome and the result of sleeping on a truly supportive bed.

The Bedding Industry has lead consumers to believe that the comfort of the bed is produced by the feel of the bed. Feel is important however, it contributes at most 25% to a person’s sense of comfort.
True bed comfort is produce by:
i) the full relaxation and minimization of stresses on muscles and joints
ii) the quality of blood flow at the support areas
iii) the pressure on the body surface where it is being supported
iv) the feel of the comfort layers
This is achieved by correctly supporting the body.
Correct support is produced by providing specific areas for the shoulder, waist and hips that are:
i) Of the correct relative firmness (relative variations in the order of 300%)
ii) Of the proper width
iii) In the correct position
The Ergolife range is designed to provide correct support and relieving stress on the human body.
It’s a fact that conventional mattresses on the market have not changed substantially since the 1960s. They are all still using a one-size-fits all mattress that’s neither supportive nor tailored to individual needs.
Most people are purchasing beds that derive few, if any health benefits. Beds may look good, feel great, and maybe made with gold threads, however if it’s not ergonomic it will not deliver the best rest the body needs.
The Ergolife range is the first and only ergonomic bed with specific areas to provide zero stress to back, hip and shoulders, providing extra comfort, correct support and the best rest the body needs.
The Ergolife range can be personalised and adjusted to suit the individual lifestyle needs of the consumer. Everybody can benefit from sleeping on an Ergolife bed not just those with back, shoulder or neck pain.
In the natural world elements that fit together complement each other and create a harmonious ecosystem – every element has a role and each works to balance the other. Ergonomically designed bedding interconnects and balances in the same way.
To fully realise the true benefits of ergonomics in bedding the mattress, base and pillow each play a vital role in contributing to the support of natural body alignment during sleep.
When selecting a new mattress and base, a new pillow can make all the difference in providing correct alignment and support for your head and neck.
Mattress sizes differ across the globe. Ergonomic Life International manufacture according to the standard sizing of the region:
Yes! Everybody can benefit from sleeping on an ergonomic bed not just those with back, shoulder or neck pain.
Research shows that sleeping on a poorly constructed bed can negatively impact quality of sleep. And poor sleep can negatively impact waking lives. An ergonomically designed bed supports the body in its natural body alignment. It can adjust to suit individual and lifestyle needs helping the body to get the much needed rest and rejuvenation from sleep.
A good quality night’s sleep is vital to promoting healthy active growing children. Children and teenagers are lighter than adults and their bodies are continually growing. As children grow their weight distribution shifts and their posture requires changing levels of support as they sleep.
An ergonomically designed bed is able to adjust to the changing needs of growing bodies. It allows their body to rest supported in their natural body alignment as they receive a quality night’s sleep.
