normal The Perfect Sleep Chair

16 May 2015 09:07 #1 by traderlady

I am a 72-year-old female side sleeper having problems with my hips and lower back. Last night slept on my 20-year old leather Barcalounger. Issue was the chair is not long enough to support my ankles and feet.

So, on the internet, I found a product called "The Perfect Sleep Chair" made with "overstuffed, high density flex foam"". That makes me nervous.

Has anyone tried this chair -- and if so, what is your opinion?

Hi traderlady,

I don't have any personal experience with the "sleep chair" but hopefully any of the members here that have purchased one will see your post and share their experience with it.

I'm not so sure what the advantages of sleeping in a chair would be compared to a mattress on an adjustable base although it does offer "heat therapy" that you wouldn't normally find on an adjustable base. I would also be cautious about sleeping on leather because of potential temperature regulation issues and for sleeping the microfiber may be a better choice. Sleeping in a chair also limits the size of the sleeping surface that you can choose and I would think it would also be more difficult to find sheets and bedding that would fit. If you prefer to sleep in other positions besides your back then having a position adjustable sleeping system would also have limited benefits for actual sleeping.

Overall (and bearing in mind that I've never tried it) I think it would be great for napping but I personally don't think I would choose it for regular every night sleeping.

The "high density flex foam" is polyfoam and I would want to know the density which would be the most important factor in the durability of the foam and how quickly it would soften or break down with regular use.

Thanks for the reply and your comments about microfiber being a better choice than leather. Still waiting to hear from anyone with personal experience.

Also, considering a SleepEZ product:

"5D" (medium) frame @ $1250
The recommended matress for @200lbs-one 3"matress on top of another 3" mattress on top of a 3" firm all combined in one--price $1675
total $2925.
I like the features i.e. doesn't sleep warm, non allergenic, breathable, doesn't fold around you like therapeutics, 20 yr warranty, 90 day trial, no tax, free delivery and delivery and set ups, etc.

Pheonix, any comments? Anyone else?

There are quite a few reviews here . However, reviews like these, both pro and con, are worth exactly what you pay for them. Hopefully you can get a reply from the manufacturer regarding specifications, as those would be more meaningful as a means to evaluate the product.

I recently had a similar situation with a family member who slept in a recliner because of back discomfort. We made the transition to a mattress in a power foundation and it has been a much better situation.

Hi @blackorchid66

Welcome to our forum! :)

I agree with Jeff’s comments that other people’s comments or reviews no matter how well-meaning they are can do more harm than good if you did not define your own set of personal criteria to go by and deterimed what is important to you according to your own personal value equation ... along with finding the specifics of the product (component specs and features) to evaluate and run it by this criteria. While you’re looking at a more specialized sleeping product I'd still suggest starting with the mattress shopping tutorial here . which includes all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choice ... and perhaps, more importantly, know how and why to avoid the worst ones. There is also more about the 3 most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase (also applies to sleep chairs) in post #13 here which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between products in terms of suitability (how well you will sleep), durability (how long you will sleep well), and the overall value of the product compared to your other finalists based on suitability, durability, and all the other parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you (including the price of course and the options you have available after a purchase if your choice doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for).

Aside from the few pointers, I mentioned in Post #2 here maybe someone that owns or has some experience with a “sleep chair” sees your post and can offer some input for you.
