Why use the Swedish Spike Mat?

The difference between the Swedish Spike Mat and mats made of fabric.

The Swedish Spike Mat; consists of 640 blunted pegs that are 15 mm long. The length of the pegs and the distance between them provides deep pressure.
Fabric Spike Mats; have between 5000-8000 nibs which is 4 mm long. The nibs are closely placed and therefore gives a more shallow pressure.

The Swedish Spike Mat; the length and distance of the pegs make it possible to suppress the pressure with a t-shirt or fabric without losing the effect. Therefore it is suitable for everyone regardless if you are sensitive to pain or not.
Fabric Spike Mats; since the nibs are short and placed closely it is not possible to adjust the pressure with a fabric without losing the effect. Used without clothing.

The Swedish Spike Mat; made of medical-grade plastic which also is used within healthcare. The plastic is allergy tested and free of harmful plasticizers.
Fabric Spike Mats; made of cotton fabric filled with foam rubber and glued “flowers” with nibs made of plastic. Fabric, filling, plastic, and adhesive varies between different brands.

The Swedish Spike Mat; since it is entirely made of plastic it is easily washable which makes it hygienic. Rinse off in water up to 60 degrees. Detergent for dishwashing, soap and/or alcohol can also be used if needed.
Fabric Spike Mats; hand-wash only in lukewarm water, a little detergent for washing clothes can be used. Wash carefully so the “flowers” does not come off.

The Swedish Spike Mat; the durable material makes the Swedish acupressure mat can withstand frequent use over many years. 10 years warranty.
Fabric Spike Mats; consists of fabrics, foam rubber, and adhesives that can be worn and broken during frequent use.

The Swedish Spike Mat; manufactured in Sweden by environmentally friendly recyclable TPE plastic, which makes it both quality and environmentally sustainable. The plastic itself is also manufactured in Sweden.
