Developed by N.A.S.A in the 1970’s, visco-elastic memory foam was quickly sourced for use as a bedding material by the medical community as a cushioning foam which could instantly reduce pressure on the joints and improve circulation.
Originally, memory foam was intended for easing the enormous ‘G-Force’ astronauts experienced during lift-off and landing.
Hospital trials in Gothenburg, Sweden confirmed the three major reasons as to why memory foam should be used as a bedding material.
- Helps to prevent spinal curvature
- Promotes blood circulation, therefore reducing bed sores; improving quality of life, providing a better quality of sleep
- Reduces pressure on the body, leading to reduced tossing and turning, leading to a deeper healthier pattern of sleep
Following this trial, memory foam was used increasingly in medical applications and the general bedding industry soon recognised the benefits of this remarkable material.
Higher density foam is far better quality, more pressure relieving support and will last longer. Higher density memory foam is naturally more expensive due to the increased level of raw material used in manufacture and a more prolonged, sophisticated production process.
The advantage of Memory Foam is that it supports the alignment of the spine and reduces stress pressure points by moulding and conforming perfectly to the body’s natural shape. Less pressure on the body and more comfort helps reduce tossing and turning, leading to a deeper sleep and healthier sleeping pattern
Mlily Memory Foam mattress toppers are constructed using third generation Memory Foam which responds quickly to movement and easily returns to its original shape. Memory Foams ability to absorb energy created by movements in the bed means partner disturbance is virtually eliminated when one changes position.
