Did you know that baby blue whales are born from an amniotic sac filled with several hundred litres of water?
The principle of pressure relief by water is as old as the evolution of mammals. And nothing has changed. The first bed a human rests in is actually a water bed. Amniotic fluid protects us against shock and pressure caused by gravity.
Akva waterbeds A/S has been developing, producing and selling waterbed systems since 1981.
Today, a waterbed is a totally normal place to sleep for anybody, and according to surveys, customers are really satisfied.
There are many advantages to owning a waterbed over a normal spring mattress bed or a memory foam mattress bed. Once people experience owning a waterbed they very rarely go back to any other type of bed.
Longevity: Buying a waterbed is a fantastic long term investment. A well maintained waterbed should last you far longer than any other type of bed. Spring mattresses lose their shape over time, leaving uncomfortable lumps and bumps. Waterbed mattresses don't have this problem; you get the same even support all night, every night resulting in a more comfortable sleep.
Hygiene: Both spring and memory foam mattresses can double their weight in 10 years as a result of collecting dead skin particles, sweat, dust, dirt and allergens that can't be removed; this is the perfect breeding ground for dust mites or "bed bugs" who further add to the problem with their droppings. A waterbed mattress has a removable cover that can be placed in the washing machine and the actual mattress can simply be wiped clean with a cloth and some vinyl wash.
Comfort: Unlike a normal mattress, a waterbed mattress can be customised to perform exactly how you want it to. The amount of motion you experience when getting into a waterbed can be fine tuned by the use of polyester stabilisation layers. Meaning you can have a full motion waterbed or a motionless waterbed and anything in between. A motionless waterbed mattress feels like it is filled with a thick liquid gel and reacts slowly to your movements. The temperature of the waterbed mattress is set by you with the built in luxury heating system. All of our waterbeds can also be fitted with a state of the art massage unit if you wish to relieve any aches, pains or stress.
Health: Many studies show that an uninterrupted full night of sleep on a regular basis can improve many health problems. A waterbed mattress gives you full, even, temperature controlled support across your whole body as you sleep unlike a normal mattress which creates pressure points and poor blood circulation. Waterbeds are specially helpful to Asthma sufferers and people with arthritis.
Customisation: There are literally thousands of different combinations of options for you to choose for your waterbed so your bed can be unique to just you. From custom headboards with either a fabric or leather finish (we have 49 different shades of leather alone) to the type of wood and style on the waterbed base, even down to the material on your waterbed cover.
