One of the most famous features of memory foam is its ability to mould to the shape of your body and then spring back to its original position. In fact, this unique adaptive property is what gave memory foam its name and NASA-certified reputation.
How Long Does Memory Foam Take To Bounce Back?
It takes just seconds for memory foam to return to its original shape. When you sit or lie down on your memory foam mattress, you will notice an indentation relevant to the pressure and weight which you applied with your body. There will probably be a deeper indentation around your hips, for example. When you stand up or move over to a different part of the mattress, you’ll see the foam moving back to it’s original shape immediately.
Memory Foam Mattress Toppers
The recovery time of a memory foam mattress topper depends on how thick it is. If it’s a thick 10cm+ topper made of high density memory foam, it will take slightly longer to bounce back. You’re only talking seconds/ minutes though. You’ll still see the instant movement as soon as you stand up. For a thinner mattress topper, the recovery time probably won’t take as long.
The Benefits of Memory Foam
Memory foam has so many health benefits both physically and mentally. And all thanks to its unique adaptive and reactive properties. As the memory foam moulds to the shape of your body, it:
- Reduces tossing and turning during the night
- Eases aches and pains
- Improves blood circulation
- Correctly aligns your spine
- Reduces strain on pressure points
