Slightly Ahead, Of Ourselves™
Kerv Technologies is the research and development arm of MFB Worldwide, Inc. Specializing in creating new innovative environment friendly technology that further enhances the comfort and quality of bedding products. Our mission is to develop technology that creates the ultimate eco-friendly, state-of-the-art affordable sleep systems.
On average, infants sleep about 16 hours a day, while teenagers need 9 hours. For most adults, 7 to 8 hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 h!ours of sleep each day.
The duration of sleep that every human needs depends on many factors, including age, health, recent physical exertion, and mental activity. According to the National Sleep Foundation not only do different age groups need different amounts of sleep, but sleep needs are also individual. Some people just need more sleep than others and this runs in families. Just like any other characteristics you are born with, there is genetic influence, too.
Everyone requires periods of sleep and/or rest to improve their health, career and over all well-being. KERV Technologies (K-Tech) continually work to improve sleep experiences by formulating the latest mattress technology into sleep systems that satisfy multiple sleeping needs. We strive to always deliver on our promise of a better, more restful sleep. Trends come and go, needs and preferences change, there’s always room for advancing the technologies of design, comfort, and support.
Memory foam has captivated and impressed sleepers since it was invented more than forty years ago. But it hasn’t really changed much since then. People often feel like they sink too deeply in traditional memory foam, making it hard to change sleep positions. Traditional memory foam also traps more heat against the body, causing uncomfortable nights for warmer sleepers.
K-Tech has created multiple sleep systems using Gel memory foam mattresses, composed of gel infused memory foam. These mattresses are 12x more breathable than traditional memory foam mattresses, so warm sleepers will not feel as hot at night. Additionally, gel foam mattresses conform to your body so you are guaranteed to get the best support where your body needs it most. When people purchase traditional memory foam mattresses, they may have to wait through a “break-in” period before they find the right level of comfort. Gel mattresses, however, are designed to provide superior comfort from day one and a good investment for those who suffer from allergies, as they are anti-microbial and dust mite resistant to protect from potential allergens.
The best type of bed mattress is entirely dependent on one thing: what is best for you personally. No matter what you may hear from others or advertisers about the perfect mattress, if you can’t get a good night’s sleep on it, then it’s not even close to being perfect. A number of different types of mattresses exist on the market and knowing what you are looking for, as well as what each kind of mattress is good for can help you determine the best mattress for your specific needs. MFB subsidiaries design mattresses for everyone, for every age, including spring mattresses , pocket spring mattress, Ergo-Coil spring mattress, latex and memory foam mattresses.
There is a great deal of technology that goes into making bedding products and creating solutions for your sleep habits. K-Tech will pioneer the next stage of sleep solutions. Our focus is to create the right support and comfort for your sleep needs no matter what type of mattress or sleep solution you choose.
Types of Mattresses & Sleep Solutions
Inner spring mattress – An innerspring mattress uses a steel coil support system. Manufacturers offer several different types of spring systems, including units with springs connected into a single unit and individually wrapped pocketed coils. Spring shapes, designs, coil gauge, and number of coils in a mattress can vary. The innerspring is covered by padding or upholstery materials, which can include various foams, fiber, and additional layers of smaller steel springs. Coil count can be more arbitrary, but the idea is that the greater the number of coils, the more points of support and greater distribution, thus the better the bed can contour !and support the sleeper.
Foam mattress – Foam mattresses use one or more types of foam as the support system. The foam may be polyurethane foam, memory (or visco elastic) foam, or latex foam, and can contain gel or other materials. The foam used in such mattresses can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and densities to offer consumers a mattress that has different comfort, feel and heat dissipation features.
Latex mattress – A Latex mattress is a mattress which contains anywhere from 1⁄2” to 10” of Latex. A premium, spongy material produced from either natural or synthetic rubber, Latex is durable, environmentally friendly and, when used in mattresses, instantly responds to the natural contours of the body. Latex can be certified organic, certified natural or synthetic. Natural Latex is an expensive component. Less expensive Latex mattresses tend to use synthetic Latex. There are two different types of natural latex used which are Dunlop and Talalay. Talalay latex has a more consistent cell structure from top to bottom and edge to edge. It is also more expensive than Dunlop. Dunlop is denser, which makes it a bit firmer overall than Talalay. Talalay has a more plush pillowy-soft texture. Latex buoyancy provides a resilient support which helps alleviate pressure points and provides natural support, and the material is highly durable.
Hybrid mattress – A hybrid mattress combines a steel coil support system with one or more types of foam, such as polyurethane foam, memory (or visco elastic) foam, or latex foam, as well as foams that contain gel or other materials.
Pillow-top mattress – Pillow top mattresses provide an additional upholstery layer sewn into the top of the mattress. This layer can b!e made from a variety of fiber and foam materials.
