The first thing to understand is the different materials that are used for stuffing within pillows meant to help neck, shoulder, and back pain. By far, the most popular option is memory foam. As you know, memory foam is already a commonly used material in mattresses, and it is now one of the leaders in the pillow world as well. There are therapeutic neck traction pillows made from substantial chunks of memory foam, and also some made from shredded memory foam. Even if you don’t wind up purchasing a memory foam pillow, it would be wise to at least consider this category as you shop.
Thanks to its ergonomic design Royal Rest orthopedic pillows fits right in between the shoulder and cervical region, supporting the area in between, which will softly position the spine into a correct alignment while the head itself rests on a super soft material providing the unique comfort it is known for. It is the design that allows us to manufacture a combination of soft and firm features at the same time. Classic foam or “high resilient density foam” and memory foam or “visco-elastic foam” is that they have different density characteristics and reaction to temperature.
Classic foam will regain original shape instantly once pressure is removed and support with a constant amount of pressure relief over time. Temperature does not have a significant effect on this function using high resilient foam material. Memory foam however, will in comparison give way when pressurized and as a consequence not be as affective providing support which is why Royal Rest has cores made of high resilient foam in all pillows to provide for necessary support. As memory foam will cover larger area of the body, due to the body sinking down into the material, it is notorious for preserving body heat in a larger degree than other foam materials.
Then it becomes even more important that the material is ventilated to provide for a healthy and sound sleep and that the cores are firm to provide support. Memory foam reacts easily to temperature and will become firmer the colder it gets and softer the warmer it gets.

A unique design with superior orthopedic properties
All Royal Rest orthopedic pillows will give you proper support for your shoulder, neck and cervical spine. Thanks to its ergonomic design the pillow fits right in between the shoulder and cervical region, supporting the area in between, which will softly position the spine into a correct alignment.
First time users of orthopedic pillows may initially experience a slight stretching sensation to the neck and shoulder area, due to the fact that the body is not used in receiving the support many of us require. It is therefore recommended that you give your body 2 – 14 nights to get used in receiving necessary support and the good healthy, relaxing rest your body requires.
Comfort and Support in Perfect Harmony
As most alternative orthopedic pillows on the market are made of one solid material, it is obviously difficult to provide both comfort and support simultaneously; the pillow will either be soft and comfortable, but then lacking sufficient support. Or it will be firm to give support but perceived as too firm to provide comfort. That is why Royal Rest pillow models consists of flexing cores in a firm material within an airy body of soft comfortable foam. The firm cores makes the manufacture of a pillow in a super soft comfort material possible while still performing accurate support giving correct spine alignment, tension relief and relaxation. The pillow material surrounding the cores is made of an open cell-structure which permits perfect ventilation and keeping you cool and fresh throughout the night. These are the factors that make all Royal Rest pillows unique and stand out amongst other alternatives on the market when it comes to giving comfort and relief, while putting high demands on quality and function, seeking relief from strain and pain in back, neck or shoulder.
