Memory foam is a polyurethane material that’s sensitive to both pressure and temperature, this means it can mould to the shape of the pressure being applied. Once pressure is removed, memory foam will return to its original shape as opposed to leaving an indentation from the pressure.
These properties make memory foam very comfortable and unlike many alternatives, memory foam prevents pressure being unevenly distributed and causing pressure points. Because of this, memory foam is well suited for any comfort application and is commonly used in bedding, furniture and many other applications requiring a soft and supporting material.
Memory foams have an open-cell structure that reacts to weight and body heat of a person’s body as they sleep.
This assists in preventing sores and relieving pain around the body’s pressure points.
