Memory Foam Beds = Comfort
A good sleep on a comfortable mattress is a luxury. Today, when everyone is chasing his/her dreams, a refreshing sleep is a necessity.
Globally, physicians, chiropractors, and physiotherapists recommend a memory foam bed and pillow for their patients due its elastic ability to conform to our individual body curves and relieve pressure points. Are you compromising your health by choosing the wrong bed?
Why are Memory Foam Beds so Popular?
Memory foam mattresses are popular and highly recommended due to their ability to form to your body which significantly reduces pressure points, improves blood circulation and provides an overall superior sleep.
A memory foam bed will take its shape around your body supporting every curve guaranteeing you a comfortable and restful sleep.
During the 1970’s, memory foam material was developed for NASA to provide relief for astronauts undergoing gravity forces. Today, it is the most popular segment in the mattress industry.
Memory Foam is a soft and heat sensitive material made from polyurethane with some additives to increase its density. Memory foam regains its normal shape when pressure is no longer applied.
Aptly named, the ‘Memory Foam’ bed has the ability to remember
and return to its original shape much like our own ‘memory cells’.
The unique features of Memory Foam that distinguishes it from other beds are:
- Memory Foam is sensitive to body temperature and molds itself to support all your body contours.
- Memory Foam redistributes body weight and provides support to your neck, back, shoulders, knees and legs.
- Memory Foam improves circulation and reduces spinal pressure.
What is Visco Elastic Memory Foam?
Memory foam is also known as ‘Visco Foam’. Visco elastic foam is the scientific term for memory foam. You may wonder what adds memory to memory foam; it’s the density characteristic of foam that adds ‘memory’ to the foam.
Why is Memory Foam Density Important?
The density and firmness of memory foam makes it unique. A higher density memory foam = better quality. In market, memory foam is available from 1.5 lbs to 5.3 lbs and most commonly available densities are 3lb, 4lb, and 5lb. Firmness of memory foam usually ranges from 6 to 40 ILD.
Memory foam is generally denser and heavier which in return gives more support compared to other mattresses available in market.
Memory Foam is Temperature Sensitive
Memory foam beds are sensitive to temperature, at lower temperature it is harder, and when at warmer temperature it becomes soft and recoils. Usually a memory foam bed is harder at room temperature and when your body comes in contact with memory mattress it softens and shapes accordingly to your body built up. On applying pressure on the memory foam with your hand, it leaves impression of your hand when removed.
With memory foam say Goodbye to stress and strain and Hello to a sound restful sleep. Give your body the luxury of memory foam and let the technology work while you sleep.
Get a memory foam bed and enrich your future with beautiful memories.
