About Our Memory Foam Mattresses
Memory foam, which is made from a polymer called polyurethane, was invented in 1966 for NASA during the space race. Its intended use was cushioning the force of gravity during liftoff and re-entry. It was first used in mattresses in the 1990s and has been growing in popularity ever since. Memory foam mattresses are known for their durability and targeted response to body weight. The memory foam in mattresses contours to the heaviest parts of the body, relieving pressure points and providing support. Unlike innerspring mattresses, memory foam does not add any opposing pressure to your body while you sleep. This makes memory foam great for aligning your spine and providing support to your lower back. Reducing and preventing pain is another fantastic benefit of memory foam mattresses. Not only does this help you feel better throughout the day, but it helps you sleep better at night. Memory foam mattresses are also hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant.
