Memory foam was originally a specialized cushioning material developed by NASA to prevent astronauts from injuries sustained from the impact of drastic change of atmospheric pressure while leaving and returning to Earth. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and cleaning with water when using a memory foam mattress. Sun exposure and water will damage the cell structure of memory foam and shorten its life span. Memory foam mattresses can be kept clean by vacuuming every or every other week with a small vacuum machine.
Memory foam fits snuggly around your body. It memorizes the spine’s S-shape and give your back superior support. It returns slowly back to its original shape after the pressure is relieved so it can contour to your body’s nature curve and provide total support.
Memory foam will change its firmness according to the change of temperature. When a person sleeps on the memory foam mattress, it will react to body temperature and conform to the unique shapes of different body parts, and hence less tossing and turning and less loss of sleep during the night.
Lying on top of a memory foam mattress can relieve fatigue promptly because the mattress completely molds itself around your body and relaxes tight muscles. Slow return means the memory foam pillows and mattresses do not bounce back instantly and therefore more stable and supportive.
Memory foam can absorb body weight distribution and effectively lessen the impact the moment when the body hits the mattress so it can support body weight and prevent waist injuries.
If someone tosses and turns frequently during sleep, it is very likely the other person sharing the same bed will be affected. The unique pressure-release and impact-absorption properties of memory foam keep each other from disturbing the other' s sleep, thus providing genuinely good quality sleep.
Our memory foam was fully antimicrobial treated and its dust-free micro-particles are truly antimicrobial, dust mites-proof, and mold resistant.
Memory foam can simulate body weight and its weight distribution so it can memorize most suitable position for different sleepers. It accommodates different needs for everyone and provides customized, enjoyable sleep experiences.
Because memory foam can buffer and absorb huge impact from falling objects, it offers great protection for patients with spinal problems and elderlies and provides them with stable and healthful sleep quality.
Memory foam has temperature sensing and heat retention properties. If there is no indoor air conditioning during constant summer heat, it is better to stop using memory foam mattress temporarily. The other disadvantage of memory foam is that it hardens when the temperature drops. Some manufacturers emphasize that the addition of infused gel to the new generation of memory foam mattresses can solve this gradual hardening problem.
Good memory foam products on the market need to have at least 40kg/m3 and above foam density to have adequate slow return, high viscosity, form memory, and pressure absorption functions.
For some customers complaining the mattresses being too soft, it is recommended to select mattresses that combine memory foam and pocket springs. This hybrid style of mattresses can improve the support and elasticity of the mattresses and provide greater comfort during sleep.
