Memory foam mattresses provide the ultimate in comfort and support whilst you are sleeping.
The memory foam adapts to your body's contours to provide you with an excellent night's sleep.
Topped with a layer of temperature-sensitive viscoelastic material making the shape of the mattress change to fit the shape of your body, and it also tends to make the mattress feel warmer.
If you like a warm mattress, then this is for you. If not choose a pocket sprung type for just as much support, but without the heat.
Also known as visco-elastic and made by scientists ( N.A.S.A ) for the big pressures suffered by astronauts in space. It has been used in hospitals for many years since the discovery of its capabilities of support for those who require it in bed to prevent bed sores and other associated problems. the fact that it holds you in a semi tight position, means that you are less likely to chafe your skin and thus not get sore and it also holds your weight better than the old conventional spring based types.
It is foam like in its feel and texture, but is very different from the normal foam you may find in a car seat or chair etc, it has MEMORY! Moulding to your exact body shape and also weight which is nothing like normal foam types that either stay soft like a sponge or hard like a brick and just offer insulation in say building materials.
One big advantage in memory foam is that its dense structure prevents dust mites and other micro type bugs penetrating it, which is amazing for those who suffer with the likes of eczema and many other associated allergies of dust and mite issues.
