Memory Foam

Around 1966 NASA’s research team was given the task of improving seating safety standards for its aircrafts, “Slow spring back”, memory foam was born.

In the early 1990’s mattress companies discovered that memory foam, because of its open-cell structure and its ability to react to body heat and weight, ‘moulded’ to the sleeper’s body and was an ideal filling for mattresses.

Today, as the technology and competition has improved, the once very expensive memory foam has become much more reasonable in price, and as such, become a far more common feature in today’s mattresses. The main advantage of adding a layer of temperature sensitive memory foam is the extra comfort and support you receive, especially in the more pressure sensitive lumbar areas.
