Nowadays, many people find their work schedules have become more hectic and many find they just cannot wait until the end of the day to get home and into bed. Everyday life can cause a lot of tension and stress on the body and this can lead to back and neck pain. People have come to develop a number of posture problems, as result, and many even complain of sleep disorders including insomnia.
Having a cozy and comfortable mattress allows you to unwind at the end of a hard day and to get relief from it all. You can enjoy getting the necessary sleep the body needs in order to recharge and be rejuvenated for the following day. Having a comfortable mattress is going to allow your body to rest and it’s recommended to replace your mattress every 5 years or so depending on the quality of it. Memory foam mattresses, as well as memory foam toppers, come in a number of models allowing you to choose one right for your needs.
These mattresses are made of memory foam which is a special kind of foam composed of a polyurethane (a compound which has an additional presence of chemicals that lend it extra viscosity and density). Due to its remarkable properties of elasticity, it’s often referred to as visco-elastic polyurethane foam as well. Memory foam toppers are the best kind of mattress covers for these types of mattresses since they prevent seepage of perspiration from your body into the mattress, and therefore preventing staining of the mattress, with a yellowish brown tinge.
History of Memory Foam
Memory foam was first introduced by Ames Research Centre- a sub-ordinate body of NASA, the space agency in the year 1966. The primary goal was to enhance the comfort quotient of the cushions in aircrafts. The foam was later commercialized and made available in domestic markets in the early 1980s, and they became popular by the year 1991. Then gradually, they came to be incorporated in the medical field, especially in cases where the patient was restricted to the bed for prolonged periods of time. This clearly shows the many ergonomic advantages of memory foam mattresses and memory foam toppers.
Memory foam mattresses are usually denser than mattresses which are composed of normal foam, and they can be measured according to their firmness, by the IDF (Indentation Force Deflection) rating. These mattresses mold themselves around the shape of your body, and they additionally do this with memory foam toppers. They have also been known to prevent the exposure to allergens from common dust, bugs or mites. Memory foam toppers are the ideal form of padding and protective covering for your memory foam mattress, as they show the same kind of resilience, and quasi-flexibility that is found in the mattress and therefore, retain their ability to ensure that you have a better night’s rest. Waking up in the morning is going to be easier than what you have had to deal with over the last few years. Many people wonder how they ever made it without a memory foam mattress or topper.
