Memory Foam

The technical name for Memory Foam used in our mattresses and toppers is VISCO ELASTIC which is made from a special formulated Polyurethane.  It is widely regarded as being invented by NASA in the 1960’s to improve the safety of the cushioned seats on their aircraft. It was not until the early eighties that NASA disclosed this information to the public.

Memory Foam sold in the UK have several different densities ranging from 20kg through to a higher quality 50kg and occasionally even higher densities. The density of the foam is basically measured by the One cubic metre block of that foam.  The weight of the cubic metre foam determines the density classification of the foam.  The weight of memory foam varies due to the amount of cell structure of the foam. Generally the more the weight of the foam the higher the density it will be and the higher the density the more cells in the structure. The cell structure will determine the durability of the mattress. Visco elastic can also be temperature sensitive.

Most Memory Foam Toppers and the element of memory foam in such Mattresses are cut from 5cm (approx 2 inches) to 10cm (approx 4 inches) of memory foam. If it’s a quality topper it will have just memory foam throughout but a memory foam mattress may come with another layer attached underneath the memory foam which is a support foam. The reason for this is that after 10cm of visco elastic foam the mattress becomes very soft to sleep on therefore the support foam adds firmness to the mattress.

 

Health Benefits

The health benefits are numerous, and medical trials & extensive testimonials have proven that sleeping on a Memory Foam Mattress can help alleviate the following conditions:

  • Back & neck pain - correct spinal alignment brings enormous benefits to back pain or neck pain sufferers
  • Arthritis - less stress on the joints and a more comfortable sleep can help ease arthritic pain
  • Headaches/Migraines - Proper support will encourage the neck muscles to relax and help prevent tension headaches
  • Allergies – Our Memory foam is anti-microbial and dust-mite preventative. This makes our memory foam superb for people with allergies, particularly asthma sufferers. The covers are removable for regular cleaning.
  • Circulatory Problems - The weight of the body is absorbed by the memory foam preventing swollen calves & feet, chaffing and bed sores.
  • Stress - A deeper, more restful sleeping position helps to eradicate "tossing & turning". Correct alignment of the spine aids in restoration of the nervous system.
  • Pelvic and Hip Pain - A memory foam mattress will mould to the contours of the body, this reduces pressure reducing the risk of swollen hip joints or an aching pelvic area.
  • Memory Foam mattresses are also excellent during pregnancy. The mattress literally moulds to the shape of your body, providing support wherever you need it the most, helping to relieve aching joints, and enabling you to easily find a comfortable resting position.
  • Perfectly Healthy People! - A memory foam mattress will give a higher level of restfulness whilst the body is rejuvenating during its sleep. This will help to avoid some of the above conditions through prevention, and will mean a better quality of sleep and relaxation when you need it.

 

Your Spine

Your spine should be straight when you’re lying on your side (topmost picture). If the mattress is too hard (centre) or soft (bottom) it will be curved.

   


The key to a healthy sleep lies in the line of your spine. It should be straight when you lie on your side, and maintain a natural curve when you lie on your back. If your mattress is too hard or too soft, your spine won’t be straight as shown in the diagrams . The memory foam mattress topper cushions your body from the main mattress, and moulds to your shape, supporting your waist and lower back. The key to a healthy sleep lies in the line of your spine.

hard     

If a bed’s too firm, you’ll get pressure points at the heaviest parts of your body. This reduces blood circulation and signals your body to turn over, while the muscles in your back and neck have to work harder to keep your spine straight. After a night of tossing around and working hard, you won’t feel refreshed and relaxed.

 

soft      

On the other hand, if a bed’s too soft it will take you more effort to move or roll over, your spine won’t be properly aligned and it can cause tension as your muscles work to compensate for the lack of support.


Memory Foam Pillows

  • Using a Memory Foam Pillow while sleeping on the back - When lying on the back, our memory foam pillows support the natural curvature of the cervical spine, providing a consistent level of support under the head, neck, and shoulders.
  • Using a Memory Foam Pillow while sleeping on the side -  When lying on one’s side, our memory foam pillows support the head and neck such that the spine maintains a straight and natural horizontal line. Weight is evenly distributed so as not to create unnatural bending or pressure.
