So, what is Memory Foam?
Memory Foam was invented in the 1970’s by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and was used to cushion astronauts during lift-off and landing. Today, advanced third generation non-temperature sensitive technology is used to create Memory Foam that is used to create the most comfortable and supportive mattresses imaginable.
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.
With third generation Memory Foam used in the manufacturing of mattresses and pillows, heat is not required to change the foams shape. Third generation Memory Foam 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.
Studies have shown that the reduction in pressure on the body when sleeping on Memory Foam helps to promote healthy blood circulation which allows the body to rest more soundly.
