A new definition of comfort

Comfort is a state that includes notions of tranquility and well-being. To understand it, we must also address its “material” aspect brought by everyday objects. The latter, the physical comfort that we feel, is closely linked to our anatomy and specific to each of us.

At Confort-ID, we develop customizable comfort products that allow everyone to achieve this state of well-being.

Well being, happiness, pleasure, what's the difference?

When we talk about well-being, many notions intersect. However, we must not confuse them. Pleasure is a sensation that arises from a particular hormone released in our brain: Dopamine. The sensation it provokes serves as a reward for the behavior that preceded it. It acts directly on our motivation and is essential for our survival.

Happiness is an emotional state also related to the production of a hormone: serotonin also called “Hormone of happiness”. In addition to influencing various physiological functions, it helps to regulate mood, aggression and emotions.
Although they are two notions that participate in it, well-being is not limited to it.

“Well-being is a more global feeling that takes into account health, social success, or self-realization.”

Understand comfort

Le confort peut se dĂ©finir par la tranquillitĂ© intellectuelle ou morale obtenue par le rejet de toute prĂ©occupation. (Selon le Petit Larousse). Qu’il soit physique ou psychologique, on peut le traduire par une sensation de bien-ĂȘtre.

“Comfort means a feeling of well being, whether material or moral.”

Physical comfort, closely related to our morphology

We can think that physical comfort is universal. Thus, a pillow or seat that is found comfortable will be judged in the same way by most people.

 

However, physical comfort is intimately related to the anatomy of each. It’s our muscles and tissues that relax. They are thus closer to their state of rest (ie neither in state of flexion nor in state of extension). That’s where the feeling of comfort comes from.

 

As we all have different anatomies, this state of rest can not be the same for everyone. To achieve the feeling of comfort, different parameters specific to each individual are to be taken into account.

A concrete example, massages:

 

They are very often associated with well-being. The direct action of contact causes an immediate effect, namely the reduction of tensions, the relaxation of the muscles or the soothing of the pains. In the long run, they can even contribute to improving our overall health.

 

In terms of psychological well-being, they reduce stress, the consideration of one’s health as well as a feeling of pleasure and the psychological well-being of a person who looks after us.

 

Two people with different morphologies and bodybuilding will not be relaxed by the same type of massage that will be lavished with a different intensity.

Proof by example

Patrick and Lucie want to be massaged. Patrick is 1m80 tall and weighs 95kg while Lucie is 1m62 tall and weighs 56kg.

By entering the massage parlor Patrick and Lucie will not have the same expectations in terms of intensity. As their anatomical constraints are different, they will not be treated in the same way.

By entering the massage parlor Patrick and Lucie will not have the same expectations in terms of intensity. Their anatomical constraints being absolutely not the same, they will not be treated in the same way.

And in our daily life then?

 

This consideration is verified in a massage parlor but not in our everyday objects. The models on the market today are standardized, the “one size fits all” dominates, forcing users to adapt to products.

 

At Confort ID, we understood the importance of putting the user and their specificities back into the heart of our thinking. So we created products that fit you and not the other way around.
