The Technology Behind Memory Foam

When anyone is asked to think of mattresses and like products, they don’t really consider the science behind it. To be fair, a basic box spring, mattress topper, or pillow seems pretty simple, but there are some products that have technological advances which set them apart from the rest. Take Memory Foam products, for example. They have an interesting backstory, having originated in NASA testing labs, and have gone through a lot to be developed and produced for everyday consumers. Currently, Memory Foam pillows are some of the most popular on the market, and are proving to offer results that are unrivaled by the alternatives.

The History of Memory Foam

Memory Foam was developed by NASA engineers in 1966 for G-Force pressure relief on the space shuttles and to improve the safety of aircraft cushions. Memory Foam succeeds in relieving 87% of gravitational force, alleviating that pressure from the neck, spine, and hips. In the 1980s, NASA released the rights for Memory Foam to the public and Memory Foam was developed for commercial use.

Since Memory Foam was made available to the public, manufacturers figured out ways to produce it at low costs in order to make it accessible to a large market. It has also found its way into hospitals and recovery centers, especially in cases where patients are confined to their beds for long periods of time. Memory Foam is able to eliminate most problems that these kinds of patients experience with other mattresses– such as bed sores and poor circulation– over an extended period of time.

What Sets Memory Foam Apart From The Rest

Memory Foam is characteristically denser and more supportive than other foam mattresses, mattress toppers, and pillows. Its super dense cell structure, comprised of spherical cells, makes it reactive to body heat and weight, which allows it to form around the shape of the body and deliver maximum support. Because of this extra support, Memory Foam has been found to alleviate pain in the shoulders, neck, joints, hips, back, and more. It is also able to provide healthier sleep for many users and help relieve snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea, and many more sleeping disorders. The higher density foam products, which will be the most comfortable and long lasting, are going to be the best product available.

The amount of research that went into developing and manufacturing Memory Foam products has paid off in quality, affordable mattresses which have an array benefits. Memory Foam has been known to help people get to sleep fast, stay asleep, and have healthier sleep that offers more energy throughout the day. Using a Memory Foam mattress can help prevent and alleviate pains in the back, shoulders, spine, joints, knees, and more, and can offer relief for sleep disorders like sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia, bruxism, fibrositis syndrome, rheumatic pain modulation, and sleepwalking.

Why Pinterest Is The Perfect Place For Retailers

It’s well-known that people like to browse products prior to purchasing them and we perform this habit, both offline and while shopping on the web.
