The Magic of Memory Foam

The Magic of Memory Foam

"

Did you know that memory foam was originally developed by NASA in 1966to enhance the safety of aircraft cushions? Soon afterwards, memory foam was adopted in healthcare settings to keep immobile patients cushioned and supported. Not only did it help patients to sleep more comfortably it also prevented pressure build-up and bed sores.

Magical foam was finally introduced into the commercial market in 1992 and has never looked back! Supportive. Cradling. Comforting. No wonder memory foam is one of the most popular mattress choices on the market today.With its consistent, cushioning support and health-promoting benefits, there are many good reasons to choose memory foam.

What is memory foam?

Memory foam is made from polyurethane, one of the most versatile plastic materials in the world. Combined with chemicals to increase viscosity and density, memory foam can contour to the shape of your body, providing a wonderful cradling and supported feeling.

Memory foam is also knownas‘viscoelastic,’ which combines viscosity (the ability to move slowly and reluctantly when pressure is applied) and elastic (the ability to stretch and change shape while maintaining its original form). So, as well as huggingthe shape of your body while you rest and sleep, memory foam can easily retain its original shape as you move positions.

There are many causes of backpain. However, if you are suffering the minute you wake up, or you are tossing and turning all night, then it is a sign your mattress could be the issue and you may want to consider a memory foam mattress.  Remember, the higher the foam density, the firmer and more supportive your memory foam mattress will be. Look for a mattress that’s between 3.5 and 5.0 to ensure optimum support and spinal alignment.
