"Made in the USA" Memory Foam

Memory foam is made from polyurethane with additional chemicals that add to its viscosity level, thereby increasing its density. Memory foam was originally developed by NASA to ease the pressure of extreme G-force during space shuttle take off. Memory foam was initially too expensive for general use, but in recent years it has become cheaper to produce and is now widely available. Memory foam mattresses often sell for more than traditional mattresses but they last longer.

Higher density memory foam reacts to body heat which allows it to mould itself to the shape of a warm body within a few minutes. A lower density memory foam is pressure-sensitive and will mould more quickly to the shape of the body. It remains useful in medical-related uses, such as wheelchair seat cushions, hospital bed pillows, and padding for persons suffering long-term pain or postural problems; for example, a memory foam cervical pillow may alleviate chronic neck pain.

When new, memory foam often gives off a distinct chemical odour which many people find unpleasant. Emissions from memory foam mattresses may cause respiratory irritation more than other mattresses.

The hardness or softness of memory foam plays an important role in ensuring comfort. Memory foam beds are much less attractive to dust mites because they have a solid core, unlike the hollow center of an innerspring mattress. Memory Foam aids in relieving sleep related soreness and insomnia while also helping control many of the allergies associated with dust and dust mites. .

Memory foam pillows are the most ergonomically correct way to support your head and neck area, to reduces stress on your spine. Memory foam mattresses are increasingly popular because they are good at relieving pressure on painful joints.

Memory foam naturally relieves tossing and turning while absorbing body heat and relieving pressure. Memory Foam Mattresses provide optimal pressure relief to help sufferers get a good nights rest while pain causing pressure which would otherwise keep them awake.

We didn't realize at first how tricky it is to choose good memory foam mattresses or how difficult it is to find accurate information that helps justify their high cost and especially the steep price tag of Tempurpedic mattresses (the leading brand).

Indulge in the latest developments in space-age technology with a Memory Foam Mattress made of special visco-elastic fibers invented by NASA. Originally designed for use by astronauts in space to help protect them from the G-forces during space flight, this same technology has been incorporated into our memory foam mattress.

Look for the "Made in the USA" logo and be assured you are getting a high quality Visco Elastic Memory Foam Mattress, Memory Foam Pillow, or Memory Foam Mattress Topper. The fact is each Memory Foam Mattress made in China has been compressed for months, and no one is sure what effect it will have on the life of the mattress. Another fact to consider is many Asian companies use toxic chemicals to manufacture their Memory Foam Mattresses and this can make you sick.

If you decide on purchasing a Memory Foam Mattress we highly suggest you add a mattress cover. Let every muscle in your body relax with the added support of memory foam for the best sleep of your life. If you have developed aches and pains with age, you may benefit from the pressure relief provided by a memory foam mattress. While a harder mattress may have worked to give you a good nights rest in the past, your body may need the comfort which can only be provided by a memory foam mattress.

A memory foam mattress is conducive to a deeper, more restful sleep and gets my vote for health product of the year!
