Tempurpedic - Sleep Comfort in the Space Age
Imagine a dense material that simply "melts away" in response to your bodyweight and temperature, moulding to your exact contours. Wouldn't it be wonderful to sink into its depths without 'sagging', to be firmly supported without 'rebounding' and to enjoy years of comfort without 'bunching' or 'fluffing'?
The widely recommended TempurPedic material has all these qualities, which make sleep a blissful experience.
On the Internet, you may have seen a variety of Tempur-pedic products for sale. Many alternatives are also available, which employ memory foam technology and boast of many improvements at a lower price than Tempur® pedic products.
In order to make the right decision, you must know what you're really paying for. And that's where this article comes in.
The Origins of Tempur-Pedic Memory Foam :
The development of Viscoelastic memory foam dates back to the early 1970's.
NASA originally developed the material to help astronauts cope with the massive G-forces during lift off. Remember how your body seems much heavier when you're riding up in an elevator, or when your airplane takes off?
Without proper support, an astronaut could get 'crushed' by his own weight, because spaceships take off at an incredible speed. The memory foam was developed to help astronauts counter these distorting forces, by enveloping them in a body-hugging shield of dense, elastic material.
So how does this "space" technology translate to Sleep Better comfort for you?
Most of the discomfort you feel in bed is because of two reasons:
Your body is not straight
Your body does not weigh the same everywhere.
Memory foam moulds to the exact contours of your body, helping every part to carry its own weight. It neutralizes the pressure points created by the irregular shape and weight distribution of the human body.
Many people compare sleeping on memory foam with 'floating on water'. You will feel lighter because of the way memory foam adapts to your unique contours. You will feel well-supported, as the memory foam gently equalizes pressure along the curvature of your spine.
Medical professionals worldwide recommend memory foam products because it's:
Sensitive to your body's temperature and pressure: The material becomes softer where your body is heavier, virtually eliminating painful pressure points.
Gives your body a "perfect fit": The material is composed of cells that redistribute themselves to match the exact contours of the body. Your body weight is evenly distributed throughout the entire surface area of the material.
Does not sag, bunch or bounce: Memory foam is durable and retains its original shape and properties for years. It supports your spine in its neutral alignment, helping you wake up feeling fresh and pain-free, year after year!
Given these advantages, Memory Foam is well worth the price. But before you hit the BUY button, you need to know…
Which price is "right" for your piece of memory foam?
There is a great deal of variation in the prices of memory foam pillows, mattresses, back-rolls and other products available on the market.
Clearly, all types of "memory foam" is not alike!
So…How can you tell the "good" memory foam from the "bad" memory foam?
The answer is, there are no "good" or "bad" memory foam products.
Each has been designed with certain considerations, for very specific needs or personal preferences.
Many people are quite happy with their Tempur®pedic memory foam. Others complain that it is too dense, takes too long to conform to the contours of their body and gets rather clammy after a few hours.
There are lower densities of memory foam available in the market, which help your skin "breathe" and are faster to take on the shape of your body.
Many people find that lower-density memory foam is more comfortable and easier on the pocket.
The only way to know what's right for you, is to put it to the "Sleep Better " test.
It if helps you sleep better and wake up more refreshed, isn't that what really matters!
If you have always considered buying a memory foam product, but were not sure if it was worth the price…this is a great way to put a few memory foam products to the only test that really matters - the "Sleep Better " test !
