Why Tempur-Pedic Is the Leader in Memory Foam Mattresses
Dec. 12, 2016 at midnight
For those who struggle to sleep, the memory foam mattress might be regarded as something akin to a gift from heaven. There’s no other mattress that conforms to your body’s contours better than memory foam.
Originally developed for NASA's airplane seats in the mid-1960s, the highly dense and flexible memory foam is made of viscoelastic – a material that molds and contracts when you apply force and returns to its original shape once you remove the pressure. That’s the reason why it molds exactly to your physical shape, making you comfortable because your body weight gets evenly distributed. It can also help relieve body pain since the mattress displaces pressure from various points of the body.
Here's another awesome feature of memory foam mattresses: since viscoelastic is temperature-sensitive, the mattress becomes softer when exposed to your body warmth. It can retain heat as well, making it equally suitable for colder nights. There are even memory foam mattresses with special cooling features for those living in tropical climates.
Memory foam mattress vs. innerspring mattress:
With all these features, it isn’t particularly surprising that so many people prefer memory foam mattresses to traditional innerspring mattresses, which features a support system made of steel coils and padded by upholstery layers. The problem with this kind of mattress is that unless the springs are arranged in small pockets, it will not respond to your body shape. Essentially that means if you lie on your back, for example, all the pressure is concentrated around your buttocks, leaving the rest of your spine unsupported. The result will be back pain the following day. The same happens if you lie on your side – your hips and shoulders are forced to support your whole body weight, leaving you with aches when you wake up.
Choosing your memory foam mattress:
Of course, it follows by implication that not all memory foam mattresses are created equal. Some meet only the bare minimum requirements, while others become leaders in their field. Tempur-Pedic gained the household name it has today because of their range of superb memory foam mattresses.
With over 20 years in the business, Tempur-Pedic has built its reputation as one of the most trusted brands in the world. Its memory foam mattresses are constructed from genuine Tempur material – the kind that NASA originally invented to keep astronauts comfortable for days on end. Unlike lesser material, Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses easily spring back to their original shape and do not compress over time.
Tempur-Pedic also continuously innovates its mattress-making technology to respond to the needs of its customers. Thus, it has firm memory foams for those who want extra body support, while it also has softer mattresses for those who prioritize comfort above all. Some of its mattresses enhance warmth, while others have cooling effects.
The Tempur-Pedic range has been specifically created to provide the kind of sleep everybody needs. Invest in one of these mattresses and that's precisely what you'll get.
