Advansa's Comforel certified with AGR seal of approval
May '14
Comforel, the tried-and-tested brand featuring original fiber clusters for pillows, has now been awarded the "Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V." (Healthy Back Campaign - AGR) seal of approval, an acknowledgement by the AGR of the back-friendly effect and support for the head and neck area provided by pillows (40×80) filled with Comforel fiber clusters.
Pillows are often underestimated in bed when it comes to back problems. A sore back and stiff neck in the morning can indicate the wrong pillow or one which is used incorrectly and no longer complies with the respective requirements. Special three-dimensionally formed Comforel fiber clusters from ADVANSA have proved eminently suitable.
Pillows filled with Comforel have been developed on the basis of scientific findings with the aim of guaranteeing constant support for the head and neck. Thousands of tiny fibre clusters constantly adapt to head and neck movements thereby preventing tension which can also affect the back.
The Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. (AGR) is an independent initiative which has been dedicated to the issue of back problems since the mid-1990s. Back-friendly everyday products and their ergonomic quality are examined by several medical disciplines and awarded the AGR seal of approval. As a unique quality feature of ergonomic and orthopedic everyday devices, this seal of approval is a reputable and recognized decision factor for consumers when buying back-friendly products.
