What’s Inside a Tempur-Pedic Memory Foam Mattress?
The driving force behind the comfort of Tempur-Pedic is TEMPUR foam, a memory foam originally developed for NASA to help keep astronauts comfortable and protected during missions to space; slow-moving foam cells helped absorb the shock of take-off.
Three Properties of Tempur-Pedic Memory Foam
Today, the TEMPUR material is adapted so that everyone – regardless of whether or not you’re in a space shuttle! – can experience what it’s like to sleep on a bed that responds and adjusts to your exact temperature, shape and weight.
The first property of Tempur-Pedic memory foam is temperature-responsiveness: From a breezy, open-cell design to moisture-wicking technologies, Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses are designed to draw heat and humidity away from you while you sleep.
The second property of Tempur-Pedic memory foam is shape-responsiveness: TEMPUR material slowly conforms to your exact shape for flawless support and comfort.
The third property of Tempur-Pedic memory foam is weight-responsiveness: Wouldn’t it be great if you never again had to worry about whether or not your mattress was designed to provide your unique support requirements? Luckily, TEMPUR does just that. Responsive foam cells adjust to your highest pressure points (such as the hip and shoulder joints) to create an ever-adapting, always-supportive sleeping environment.
Resistance for a Better Night’s Sleep
The key takeaway? The TEMPUR material found in every Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattress is slow-moving, so when your body comes into contact with it, your joints won’t “sink” into it as they would on other types of mattresses. The resistance put up by TEMPUR makes it good for helping to relieve pressure, while providing conforming comfort.
