Back pain prevention and treatment, spine health preservation
“A man is as young as his spinal column. If your spine is stiff at 30, you are old. If it is flexible at 60, you are young.” Joseph H. Pilates
Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to doctor. It affects 70-80% of the population at some point in their life. The revolutionary Demko Bed-System has been developed and used in spine and orthopeadic clinics for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of back pain, lower back pain as well as spine disorders. Furthermore, to generally preserve spine health which is vital for active life and healthy ageing. Its remedial and preventative qualities go beyond any health benefits of other orthopedic bed-systems, memory foams or sprung mattresses. Moreover, it gives the ultimate comfort for all age groups.

“Training as a para dressage athlete takes its toll on my body. Consequently, rest and recovery is paramount to my success in the saddle. Replacing my bed and mattress for a Demko bed and bed-system has given me the comfortable nights sleep that I so desperately craved. This is without a doubt the best bed I have ever slept on!”

How it prevents back pain
The spine and body are flexible therefor they need flexible support. One which adjusts automatically to each individual body and how it moves. The double row slat base under the mattress can move in all 3 dimensions. As a result, it can perfectly adjust ergonomically to the contour of any body type at any position. The slats are made of white beech wood which go through a special steaming and cooling process to make them strong as well as flexible at the same time. The strips between the slat rows are made of a special durable foam material in special canvas cases.
Its special finish and suspension means they are able to carry out vertical, transverse and rotational movement. Regardless weight, shape or position on the bed, it always keeps the spine in the ideal position. Furthermore, it makes perfect weight shifting.
The slat base adapts perfectly to the shape of the user’s body. It provides perfect, equal support to the spine along its full length as well as exceptional lower back support.
The vertebral discs will take up the optimal position during sleep avoiding their degeneration. Importantly, decreasing the load strain and thereby ensuring that no harmful tension points develop. The Demko Bed-System evenly distributes the weight on the bones, the ligaments, the muscles linking them. As well as on the muscles surrounding the spine and the area around the joints. As a consequence, the blood supply will be perfect as will be the removal of inter-tissue waste material through the veins and lymph vessels. At the same time the slat base also stretches the spine longitudinally, moving the vertebrae and articular discs away from each other. The arteries are straightened out and the local blood pressure will decrease and supply of nutrition to the articular discs will increase.
Eliminate back pain by the Demko Bed-System which is also the perfect solution for preventing and treating of
- Acute and chronic loco-motor diseases
- Lumbago, sciatica, spinal disc herniation and post-operative conditions
- Degenerative disc disease and vertebral subluxations
- Vertebral and limb disorders
- Joint pains, arthritis, osteoporosis, spinal injuries
- Lower back pain and spinal pain
- Pain in the vertical- thoracic- and lumbar vertebrae
- Pain and numbness in the upper and lower extremities
- Insomnia, poor circulation and short of breath
- Acid reflux and night-time heartburn
“After permanent use of the Demko Bed-System in the above mentioned conditions the need for drug use, as supported by previous clinical surveys, has dropped considerably or even ceased and planned surgeries have become avoidable.” A. Tailor MD (Specialist in Neurosurgery)
“The qualities of the Demko Bed-System not only prevent the further deterioration of spine disorders but as prevention, they can make it impossible for them to appear at all. As a practising doctor who cures patients with locomotor diseases, I find the Demko Bed-System extremely good, both at the prevention of spinal disorders, and their regeneration.” Dr J. Baggio (Spine-Specialist, Head Physician)
It is recommended for all age groups as it helps in
Healthy development of the bones and spine
Preservation of spine health
Enhancement of physical performance
Avoiding sleeping disorders, chronic headaches, neurosis
We spend an average of 6 hours out of 24 in bed, which would amount to around 20 years during our lifetime.
Sleeping on a too soft or too firm bed can cause structural changes created by bad posture. This can contribute to degenerative disc disease, along with other degenerative changes to the spine. On a too soft bed the spine bends onto the bed and the muscles slacken on the concave side. During that time:
- the vertebrae and the bones degenerate
- bone sediment forms on their corners
- the muscle becomes taut on the convex side and the arteries running through the muscles become compressed
- the blood supply deteriorates and neither can the used blood pass out through the compressed veins and lymph vessels
- pains like muscular strain, occurs when we wake up
- the muscles and ligaments become stretched, thus their holding effect is weakened during physical activity during the day
The situation is very similar on a too firm bed, but the negative effect occurs in a different section.
As John Lennon BM, MM.C, and Norman Shealy M.D stated that “bad posture affects and moderates every psychologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture.”
The bed-system comes either with a 10cm organic latex mattress (for persons under 16 stones / 100 kgs) or a combination mattress of 3cm coir fibre + 7cm organic latex (for persons above 16 stones / 100 kgs) where the coir fibre layer provides extra support. The mattresses on our organic mattresses page can not be used with the bed-system as they would be too thick/firm for it and would decrease the effect of the slat base. (They are for traditional mattress bases without our slat base.)
In king or super king size beds we always put two single bed-systems so they can work independently for each bodies.
Available size: 80x200cm, 90x200cm and bespoke sizes
