FAQ about the magnetic pad by NIKKEN:
What materials is the Naturest® Kenkopad® made of?
The Naturest® Kenkopad® consists of natural Dunlop latex, certified organic cotton, bamboo, and wool. Natural latex is made from the sap of the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis).
What properties and advantages does natural latex have over Rubberthane foam?
It offers excellent breathability. The temperature and moisture balance are well regulated and the Kenkopad® always stays fresh and dry. Latex foam is highly elastic and offers optimal elasticity and support on the entire sleeping surface of pillows and mattress pads. It is characterized by many years of comfort, regardless of your body weight, your stature or your height. The special comfort is that latex adapts to the contours of your body and allows the body to take a natural position during sleep. The natural curvature of the back and spine is gently supported, which ensures a more relaxing sleeping position.
How many magnets are in the Kenkopad®?
Sizes from 74 x 185 cm to 90 x 200 cm: 13 RAM ™ magnetic disks. Sizes from 100 x 200 cm to 140 x 200 cm: 19 RAM ™ magnetic disks. Sizes from 160 x 200 cm to 180 x 200 cm: 26 RAM ™ magnetic disks. The pattern has a RAM ™ magnetic disc.
Are there tests that prove the durability and longevity of the Naturest® Kenkopad® when used continuously?
The Naturest® Kenkopad® was subjected to durability tests during its development. In comparison to polyurethane foam, natural latex is inherently hard-wearing and, moreover, shows less tendency to sag or compress under pressure. No other foam can offer such a resilient and consistently supportive base material.
Is the new Nikken Naturest® Kenkopad® organic certified?
Even if numerous suppliers advertise organic latex / organic latex, there is currently no official organization (such as ECOCERT or USDA) that can bio-certify latex.
I would like to place my Naturest® Kenkopad® on my KenkoDream® Deluxe mattress. Do I increase the magnetic effect by combining the magnets of the mattress and the mattress pad? Do I get too much magnetic energy?
The Naturest® Kenkopad® can be placed directly on the KenkoDream® Deluxe mattress. The Gaussian strength of a magnet is inversely proportional to its distance. This means that the greater the distance to the magnet, the lower the magnetic energy. The Naturest® Kenkopad® is 7.5 cm thick. Then there is also the mattress cover, the bed sheet and the pajamas in between - the distance to the dipole magnets in the KenkoDream® Deluxe mattress is so great that the effect of the magnets in the mattress is minimal.
Why natural latex?
As already mentioned, no other foam can offer such a resilient and consistently supportive base material. We have tried all sorts of materials, but there is simply no substitute for what nature offers us and which also lasts. Natural latex contains no petroleum distillates, is a renewable raw material and thus makes a positive contribution to the preservation of the ecosystem.
