Slow release or “Memory Foam” as it is often called, (technically known as Viscoelastic foam), was originally developed by N.A.S.A to protect astronauts from the tremendous pressures exerted on their bodies by G forces as they departed and returned through the earth's atmosphere. The foam was designed to sense the astronauts' body temperature and body weight, and then gently conform to the shape of their bodies, thereby providing the perfect amount of support over an extended period of time. This new foam proved to be so successful that its potential was soon recognized by medical science. Hospitals began ordering memory foam mattresses for bedridden patients and burn victims. A Swedish company soon realized this could be great for home use as well, and began marketing the first generation of memory foam mattresses to the public, known as Tempur-Pedic® mattresses. Memory foam is now the most effective substance for relieving pressure points caused by the weight of the human body in its relaxed state. Subsequently it is now used by hospitals throughout the world to prevent pressure sores, which can easily occur when the body lies still for many hours, such as during an extensive surgical procedure.
Memory foam has several unique properties that in combination provide the most comfortable sleeping experience on the market today.
Imagine for a moment that you are lying on your bed at home. Now instead of lying on your existing bed, imagine that you have a layer of memory foam sandwiched between your body and your mattress. As you relax, you start to feel your body gently sinking into the memory foam. Each individual castle of foam immediately starts to respond to your unique shape and body temperature. You'll begin to experience a feeling of gentle support cradling the natural hollows in your neck, shoulders, back and knees, while your joints and muscles will become totally relaxed, giving you a wonderful sense of weightlessness as you gently drift off to sleep.
Simply because of its ability to absorb pressure, memory foam can significantly reduce your need to toss and turn in bed by a significant eighty percent. If you suffer from back trouble or impaired movement, memory foam will really make a huge difference to your quality of sleep.
Now compare that feeling with the sensation of an ordinary mattress, whether it is pocket sprung, coil sprung or ordinary foam. Such mattresses require that your body conform to their rigid surfaces. As they exert upward forces, they cause pressure to build as your body struggles to adapt to the flatness of the mattress surface. Pressure starts to build up around your hips, shoulders and knees causing reduced blood supply and inevitable discomfort. The small of your back is left stranded in mid air, unsupported, causing extensive discomfort, especially for chronic back pain sufferers. As a result, you are now forced to alter your sleeping position, perhaps even waking up in the process, interfering with your need for deep sleep, where bodily functions slow and blood pressure is lowered, giving much-needed relief to the cardiovascular system.
Our memory foam mattresses contain a uniquely sculpted surface divided into blocks of various size, called castles, with the channels in between these castles helping to keep air circulating beneath your body and also helping to disperse body heat and perspiration. The foam’s temperature sensitivity makes it slightly warmer than a conventional mattress to sleep on. Therefore it is recommended that in warmer climates you adjust your bedding accordingly.
