5 Facts About NASA Memory Foam Technology

5 Things You Didn’t Know About NASA Memory Foam Technology

Many will recognise memory foam because of its relation to the American Space Agency, NASA. This is due to the fact that NASA Memory Foam was the first created using the visco elastic material.

1. Where It Came From

When it was first invented in the 1970s, the foam was to be used to create seating in space craft’s to offer astronauts extra support while on their journeys in and out of space by absorbing some of the pressure caused by the G-force.

2. Certified Stamp of Approval

Although the space foam was never initially intended to be used for bedding, many Memory Foam Mattresses today carry the ‘Certified Space Technology’ stamp of approval. This is given to products that are a direct result of technology developed for space programmes, or feature specific advances and improvements of a high technological standard.

3. Global Success

It was only in the 1990s that the foam was first used by consumers in America. Once the material was identified for its healthy sleeping benefits the space age technology suddenly became increasingly popular in the construction of mattresses for its ability to help improve the sleep of individuals around the world.

4. Unique Benefits

The significance of memory foam is its ability to support our entire body weight whilst at the same time reducing the strain we put on our pressure points when we lay down. The foam also moulds to our unique shape and cradles our body without disturbing our sleep, lessening the chance of us waking up with aches and pains.

5. Construction

To achieve all these benefits the foam must be made from the original open cell material. Unlike traditional coil and spring mattresses it offers the perfect combination of comfort and support and will keep your spine in the correct alignment, no matter what position you sleep in.
