Uratex , Helps the Fractured body parts safe thru their Orthopedic edition

20140904154136It was during my primary school days when I was accidentally fractured on my right arm joint because of some quarrel with my older sibling. I have not dealt with it for the reason of the fear of the wrath my father that may bestowed upon us, even though the joints was actually twisted and would just normally comes back to normal if it will be turned around again by other person.
As I played sports like basketball, as have been my daily routine I always experienced my right arm disjoints time and time again just by some wrong movements that I may have done while playing.
One fine morning this was during my college years that I experience disjoints with my right arm even when I’m just lying in my ordinary bed while sleeping and that was one of the most aching and  horrible experience I had just while sleeping and being so worried I decided to tell it to a doctor and prescribed me to have a bed that is for the orthopedic which is a hard one or may decide to sleep on the floor so that I may not experience such kind of incidence once again.
Up until now I thank my imported brand Orthopedic bed for making my sleep good and not worrying to have a slip disc on my shoulder once again .
20140904154701But as I see  last weeks event that Uratex had on SM Megamall the “My Home Event with Team Kramer” and try to lay down on Uratex Orthopedic bed I find it hard yet there is that softness as if a magic in the outer skin which is obviously the foam Uratex has and I am looking forward to have this kind of bed laying around my room and doing some kind of sleep be it a siesta or full night sound sleep together with their pillows that is so soft and  very good to cuddle. This might be one of the technologies that would make Uratex known worldwide for as I talk with some of thier brand salesman ,” This particular model has its very good and high quality springs that would be more tough than other high end brands and the bed needs not to be turned around for it to be in right alignment and structures.” and this makes this product to be  different and makes it more credible brand.

Uratex My Home Event: Unique sleep solutions to help each family member recharge

Finally, a local market has dealt with the problem of most of the individual who does not have a sound sleep at all. This does not concern on rich people alone but also for the mid and class C and D family. Having the right remedy for the right price should be the case for every aching individual.
The family who sleeps and takes a good sleep is happier, healthier, and does more bonding activities. Uratex, the leader in foam manufacturing in the Philippines and the designer and producer of premium mattresses, emphasizes this point in its My Home Event slated on September 04, 2014 at SM Megamall. In partnership with SM Home, SM Store, and SM Megamall, Uratex will be showcasing its newest and elegant and comfortable beds, their different kinds, and how they service the needs of each family member. A quality good night's sleep on one of Uratex’s mattresses or its variations can help dad become more motivated, mom more energetic, and the kids less stressed and yet still enthused and excited about life.
This is because good sleep is the one key to maintaining good health and ensuring energy, mental sharpness, and emotional calm the next day. It also spells the difference between a happy disposition, mood swings, and a grumpy day.
Sleep is essential for all peoples, regardless of age, and a good rest is vital especially for a family. Dad and mom need to be productive for their workplaces and nurturing to their kids. The children, meanwhile, have to deal with school challenges, peer pressure, changes in perspective, and their own emotional and inner growth. Their older brothers and sisters who are working will have to confront work deadlines, demanding bosses, and romantic relationships where they have to give more of themselves.
Sometimes, every family member just might find himself or herself hard-pressed to keep up with the challenges they are facing. An average of six to eight hours a day is the requirement, according to physicians and other medical experts. Now, if each family member were not to get his required rest that night, tensions just might arise within the family, inadvertently causing them to get on each other’s nerves.
Uratex Philippines, which has grown immensely in 46 years from a modest company to the foam leader in the country, has always kept the family’s welfare in mind. Perhaps being a family-owned company is one of the reasons behind this. Another is the company’s constant research and development who sees to it that all its clients receive the excellent foam that they deserve and enjoy the quality sleep that they need.
A big king-size bed is ideal for the family. While helping to ensure the intimate bond between the father and mother, it can on occasions transform to become the ‘happy healthy playground’ of the kids. Stories can be read, the events of the days can be recapped, or a favorite DVD marathon with a late midnight snack can bring the family even closer together.
Uninterrupted sleep and quality foam that can provide rest to the body is part of the service that Uratex provides, thanks to its passion for excellence that characterizes its products. Innovations such as the “Quali-5 Cellular Technology” make sure that the Uratex foams produced by the company are of high and world-class quality. The Quali-5 Cellular Technology shows the company's strong adherence to quality; its quality assurance through its ISO-9001 certified facilities; world-class equipment; superior formulation and process engineering technology; and usage of best raw materials.
The Airlite is best for family members who want a cooler sleeping environment. The more flexible and portable sofa beds are recommended for those who prefer a little more me-time, watching their videos or chatting with friends and colleagues while lying down on their leisure time. Sofa beds also come in handy when visitors visit the home; these guests can stretch out on the sofa beds, enjoying meals and the conversation.
Dad and Mom enjoy their own special ‘couple time’ with the Hamptons Collection, with its trademark plush comfort that encourages a more leisurely demeanor, can help create a more romantic mood in private. The Hamptons Collection comes in five models: Royale, Prestige, Mystique, Premiere, Elite.
Regardless of the model they choose, each family member can find the Uratex mattress that fits him or her – and with it, enjoy a luxurious sleep that will recharge them the next day and probably add a rosier outlook.
Uratex’s other products help induce this high-quality of sleep for the customers. Uratex pillows have different types, sizes and functions that will suit your need and preferences to help you achieve a great sleep. Meanwhile, the hyper-soft mattress enhancer adds that extra comfort to every bed, enhancing the relaxation for each family member who uses it, inviting him or her to unwind by sleeping in a cradling position. Mattress and pillow protectors help keep the mattress and pillow clean and fresh.
Uratex is always sensitive to the needs of its customers and alert to provide the personalized kind of sleep solution that they need. This is one reason why it has been winning the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands awards the past six consecutive years. Winners like Uratex are chosen based on their trustworthiness and credibility, quality, value, understanding of customer needs, innovation, and corporate social responsibility.
