  • Estimado Carlos,

    Obrigado pelo contacto!

    Nao existe um único e ideal colchão para hérnia de disco lombar. Existem sim, algumas características importantes que devem ser consideradas por quem tem hérnia de disco na hora de adquirir um colchão.

    Os colchões de molas são indicados quando há bastante diferença de peso entre duas pessoas que usarão o colchão de casal, por exemplo. Colchões de molas não ficam com a marca de quem deita, sendo ideais para quem dorme de lado.

    Outros fatores a serem considerados quando se adquire um colchão é a densidade. Colchões mais densos suportam maior peso. Portanto, considere seu peso e lembre-se que em cama de casal, é o peso de duas pessoas que deve ser considerado.

    Recomendariamos a nossa linha de Colchões SSI e SPA.
