An Intelligent Pillow? Sign Me Up. {intelli-Pillow Review}

Saturday, January 24, 2015

I received an intelli-Pillow from intelliBED in order to facilitate an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I have always had a problem with pillows. No matter what kind of pillow I try, they always flatten out on me. I wash, I tumble dry, I beat, I prod, but I can't keep a good pillow for more than a year before it pancakes for good.

I've tried regular old poly pillows, feather pillows, pillows for side sleepers, memory foam pillows. I'm so used to waking up with a crick in my neck that I thought that would be the status quo for the rest of my life.

I got the chance to try an intelli-Pillow from IntelliBED, and I couldn't wait for it to arrive. It sounded like heaven, and I wasn't far wrong.

About the intelli-Pillow:
Adjustable comfort and Support for Perfect Neck Support. 
If you have trouble finding a pillow that properly supports your head all night long this pillow is for you. We start with a soft, but supportive foam core then add an adjustable, hand-pumpable air chamber that let’s you adjust the contour of the pillow by about 2 inches. This allows you to set the pillow at the perfect angle between your head and shoulder to get the support that’s just right for you.And once you get that angle of support it remains that way until you change it by adjusting the amount of air. Then we add a plush layer of Intelli-GEL Advanced Cushioning Material for outstanding comfort and finish up with a zippered cotton knit cover that perfectly complements the feel of the gel. The IntelliPILLOW is great for side sleepers and back sleepers alike! It comes in three options, the side sleeper regular, the side sleeper low profile and the back sleeper.

I received the side sleeper regular for review. I will admit that when I pulled it out of the shipping box I hugged it...and I didn't want to let go. 

The intelli-Pillow comes with a zippered cover, which is plush and soft. They recommend also using a pillowcase over the cover to get the maximum life out of your pillow, and it will fit in a standard pillowcase.  It comes in a zippered bag with handles, perfect to keep around if you want to travel with your pillow.

Taking it out of the plastic display bag, I noticed the air chamber pump peeking out of the zippered cover; It's a soft plastic bladder that can be tucked in the cover and zipped inside. They recommend starting out with 10-20 pumps, and sleeping on it before adjusting again, and there is a little release button on the side of the pump to let out air if you decide you've pumped it too much.

The pillow itself, uninflated, is so super-cushy. You just sink into it. It's not soft, per se, but a weird mix of yielding firmness. I removed the cover to get a better look at what's inside.

Around the inner air chamber is a thick foam core. It's firm but yielding, like a good foam core should be, but sandwiching the foam core are thick layers of their patented intelli-Gel. Intelli-gel is a one of a kind gel material. Other gel mattresses use a blended mix of gel and foam and try to pass off as a mattress like theirs. but Intelli-BED fought for, and is the only company that has a right to use, this gel.

It's not just a layer of gel, but a honeycomb-like structure that gives the pillow such loft, and also allows it to give way more than a solid layer of gel. Oh my gosh, does it feel good! It also acts to keep your pillow cool; Fantastic if you're a hot sleeper. 

You can flip your pillow and get the same comfort on both sides. They recommend flipping it periodically to extend its life.

I used this pillow for 3 days on 20 pumps, then upped the air chamber with 20 more pumps. Perfect! After using it for a week, I can say that I didn't wake up once with an aching neck or shoulder. THIS PILLOW IS AMAZING, Y'ALL! I'm serious here. If I could fit my whole body on this pillow and sleep on it, I would!

This thought made me want to check out their beds more closely:

Intelli-Gel filling? Sold.

You can check out IntelliBED on their website, and you can find the intelli-Pillow here. They're a bit pricey, but it's a solid investment. They offer a fantastic warranty, and also financing if you need it.

Intelli-BED can also be found on social media. Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube.

How do you sleep these days? Could it be better?
