A memory foam mattress is not the perfect and most optimal sleeping tool for a human body, but compared to all other mattresses on the planet, it is a cut above the rest. A memory foam mattress is in such a league of its own that other mattress types do not even compare.
Pressure and tension
People sleeping on their sides puts a lot of pressure on their shoulders and hips, and people sleeping on their bellies puts a lot of pressure on their necks. Those who sleep on their backs put pressure on their lower back. A mattress made from visco-elastic foam reduces the pressure on the joints attached to vital areas, bypassing all the convexities and concavities of the human body. More pressure is therefore equivalent to better sleep and a better muscle tension.
Did you know that?
Besides its medically soothing properties, memory foam has distinct chemical properties in its makeup, which makes it a cut above all other mattress types.
Memory foam pillows, a mattress, or topper is naturally hypo-allergenic
Memory foam toppers, pillow, or mattress is also anti-mite
All memory foam is anti-mold
Some memory foam is anti-microbial
Some memory foam is also anti-fungal
It is for these reasons that the medical field has adopted this product to help their patients. The advantages found in memory foam are not limited to pressure on the joints, but also extend to pressure on the skin of their patients. The foam has properties that help patients with tissue problems such as bedsores, and is able to align their spinal column to perfection whilst at rest.
Visco-elastic foam is temperature sensitive, this is the reason why it is able to mold to your body, but not to an object you place on your bed. It is equipped with high elasticity cells due to its molecular structure. Its resilience rate far exceeds some other foam products, making it the most highly regarded foam on the market.
Memory foam toppers
Some people are reluctant to buy a topper because they are not as high quality as a full memory foam mattress. This is true but on the flip side, a topper is far cheaper than a mattress.
What is open cell memory foam?
The structure of the an open-cell visco-elastic allows the mattress to breath naturally, just like a fabric based one, thereby maintaining a uniform temperature within the mattress. This may be something to consider if your bedroom is overly cold at night.
Memory foam has a very high manufacturing standard
For the right to wear the “memory foam” name, the visco-elastic must be temperature sensitive and must be have the ability to bounce. It must also be able to resume its original shape after use. This method of grading is called “Gravity” (measured in pounds or kilograms per cubic feet). Method for grading the strength is called “Compression” in relation to its resilience. Only after passing rigorous tests are the mattresses allowed to enter the market.
