ABSTRACTIntroduction: The hammock is an utensil of indigenous origin used to sit down, to rest and to sleep. In Roraima, north area of Brazil, for cultural subjects the hammock is also used as bed hospitalar. In that sense it is emergent to transcend the thought ethnographic and to contemplate on the effects that the hammock can cause on the physical body of that that rests for long period of time on it.
Objective: Make a reflective essay on sleeping on hammock by using Cascudo's literary text to provide constitutive elements to subsidize the theoretical framework of a doctoral thesis, which proposes the use of sleeping hammock to prevent pressure ulcers.
Method: Reflective discourse provided by classical content analysis method.
Conclusion: Cascudo's text answered the study’s objectives, expanded the understanding of the importance of hammock not only as a decoration object, but also to provide comfort and sleep, though its use may be under the judgment of the body which is inseparable from cultural preferences.
