Abstract

Sleep is separated into several stages, and in the stage of deep sleep, body and mind could recover because of the secreting of neurotransmitters. However, stimulation when sleeping would stop the mechanism and cause arousal. Pressure paralysis is a kind of stimulation, and that would be caused by long-time pressure on nerve. To avoid pressure paralysis, with morphological analysis, there would be a three-layer mattress design in this study based on pressure and temperature distribution.
