What is the function of u-shaped pillows?
A u-shaped pillow is designed to provide support and comfort to the neck, head, and shoulders while sleeping, resting or traveling. The u-shape of the pillow allows it to wrap around the neck and provide support to both sides of the head, preventing the neck from tilting in any direction and reducing strain on the muscles.
U-shaped pillows are popular among people who suffer from neck pain or stiffness, as well as those who want to ensure a comfortable sleep while traveling on long flights or road trips. They are also commonly used by pregnant women to support their growing bellies and relieve pressure on their backs and hips.
In addition to providing neck and head support, u-shaped pillows can also be used for various other purposes, such as propping up the back while reading or watching TV, supporting the lower back while sitting, and even as a nursing pillow for breastfeeding mothers.
U-shaped pillow is suitable for daily office and leisure use (such as computer operation, watching TV and long-distance travel, etc.). Keeping the head and neck fixed for a long time in daily office can easily cause spinal strain. U-shaped pillow can effectively prevent spinal strain.
U-shaped pillow is a good choice for drivers who are suitable for long-distance driving. It can adjust the driver’s head by 15-20 degrees, avoid the compression of the jugular vein, reduce fatigue, and facilitate safe driving.
U-shaped pillows are available in three different materials, namely thermal memory foam, flocking and double-layer structure. The double-layer structure is relatively better.
