Pillow Talk: How do air-filled cushions compare?

Pillow Talk: How do air-filled cushions compare?

Living with mobility restrictions, or the pain of dealing with pressure sores, is a huge challenge. Amongst the many pain relief options available, choosing the right pressure relief pillow or cushion can be a confusing and difficult choice, but fear not - Enora are here to demystify the process.


For over 25 years, our team of clinical experts has worked with the NHS to develop Repose® Technology - revolutionary air-powered devices to help the recovery and prevention of pressure sores, providing relief and comfort. And thanks to Enora, this technology is now available to bring into your home.


Enora’s air-filled pillows aren’t simply medical devices: they’re life transformers, mood enhancers, and all-around comfort champions, using Repose® Technology loved by millions.


So, why do we choose air-powered technology instead of other fillings? Here are 4 reasons why air-filled comfort cushions are the best choice:


  1. Long-lasting Support:

Our pillows aren’t just a fleeting solution - they’re carefully designed for the long haul. Unlike traditional foam or feather supportive pillows that may lose their shape over time, air-filled cushions from Enora maintain their resilience. By taking care of your Air Cushion, it will continue to give you support for many years, saving you money and the hassle of frequent replacements.


  1. Instant Pressure Relief:

Imagine a cushion that snuggly moulds to the shape of your body, helping to distribute your weight evenly, and relieving pressure build-up: that’s the magic of the Enora Air Cushion. Everyone’s experience with an Enora air-powered product is different and tailored to your individual body type. In a recent study[1], our products achieved the lowest maximum peak pressures and redistributed the pressures more consistently and evenly than other tested cushions - such as foam fillings having 20% higher peak pressures, and mosaic-style air-filled cushions having 5% higher pressure.


  1. Invigorating Circulation Boost:

Enora’s air-filled cushions go above and beyond pressure relief. Materials like memory foam, while comfortable for many, can sometimes trap heat and prevent circulation. Enora’s air-filled pillows have significant benefits in improving blood circulation which contributes to ultimate comfort - reducing the risk of numbness, tingling, and related discomfort.


  1. Travel-friendly Comfort:

Our pillows aren’t just made for your home, they’re designed for wherever life takes you. Unlike electric or battery-powered cushions, which are bulky and need charging, Enora’s air-filled cushions are lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport. Simply deflate the pillow, pop it in a bag, and re-inflate it with the pump at your desired destination - making it the perfect companion for those on the go.

 Join the Enora tribe, and experience the life-transforming benefits of our ultimate comfort range.
