Memory foam’s journey as a bedding material is a fascinating one. It was developed by NASA in 1966 to improve the safety of aircraft cushions. Later, memory foam was made commercially available for both sports as well as medical equipment. How did it transform itself into the most popular mattress type? Let’s find out.
As we had covered in our previous post, “In the 1980s, NASA released this material to the public. Most companies chose not to work with the product as it was considered both complex and erratic as a bedding material. In 1991, Tempur-Pedic Swedish Mattress took the challenge and used the material for their mattresses. Since then the journey of memory foam mattresses has been one of many successes that involved incorporating newer technologies to overcome its weaknesses and turning them into its strength.”
In today’s post, we put an end to the worry about whether memory foam is good or bad for you by presenting you with four solid memory foam benefits. Ready? Let’s dive right into it!
Memory foam benefits
Reasons why you should pick memory foam for your bedroom include:
- Relief from pain
A memory foam mattress is the best idea for sleepers with spinal problems or back-related issues. The mattress distributes your body weight uniformly throughout so that no pressure points are created in your neck, shoulders and hips. Of all the memory foam benefits, this is the biggest advantage because it helps you wake up without any strain or ache in your neck or your back. Memory foam ensures that your spine is not bent in any unnatural way when you sleep. It maintains the natural position of your spine, and thus prevents back pain or postural defects in you.
- Best for couples
Due to its motion isolation, memory foam ensures zero disturbance sleep. This means that when two people are using the memory foam mattress and if one person tosses or turns or slips in and out of bed, the mattress will absorb their motion and completely isolate it so that the other sleeper is not jostled out of bed. This is what makes memory foam the ideal sleep solution for couples.
Memory foam mattresses by brands like Wakefit are hypoallergenic. They keep dust, molds and other microbes away from your bed. This makes your mattress the most hygienic and fresh space in your entire house. When you sleep on a memory foam mattress, therefore, you are not only benefiting your sleep, but also your skin and your respiratory system.
- Temperature control
Initially, memory foam was criticised for its inability to offer heat circulation, causing the sleeper to sleep hot and uncomfortable. The leading memory foam mattress brands of today, such as Wakefit, have overcome this disadvantage by introducing one or the other cooling technologies into their design. At Wakefit, for instance, we have memory foam with an open-cell structure that absorbs extra body heat of the sleeper and circulates it throughout so that the sleeper gets the best eight-hour sleep that they can dream of.
Now that we are done with memory foam benefits, let us quickly run you through the features of our orthopedic memory foam mattress.
