Memory Foam Mattress FAQ
What is a memory foam mattress?
The Memory foam mattress is made from a temperature sensitive material that resists changes to its shape and slowly returns to its original shape when forced to change its shape. Tests have shown that a memory foam mattress can help spread pressure over a greater surface area and conform to body shape, thereby reducing pressure points and increasing sleeping comfort.
Why is the memory foam mattress so comfortable?
There are several reasons why the memory foam mattress is so comfortable. Firstly, the visco elastic cells deform when weight is applied to them. Since these cells have holes in them (open cells), they compress and spread their air pressure to other cells. The spread of pressure to a greater number of cells reduces the pressure that you feel on specific parts of your body and allows the material to more effectively conform to your body's shape.
What type of memory foam mattress should I go for?
It is important to know that the quality of mattresses is dependent on the density of the memory foam. Some of the cheaper mattresses will use a much lower density form of memory foam and so it is worth checking how high the density of memory foam is when you are thinking about making your purchase. Please note that all of the Flexcell range is made from high density memory foam.
