Memory foam is a revolutionary product developed by NASA to protect astronauts from the gravitational pressures put on them during lift-off. Soon after it was released to the public, the medical community began using it for patients with severe pain and pressure sores from immobility. These patients slept better and recovered faster than patients that didn’t have the benefit of memory foam.
In today’s stressful world, our bodies are exposed to all kinds of stressors; from physical issues from repetitive tasks, to our sedentary jobs that usually result in poor postural habits our bodies are taking a beating all day, every day.

Memory foam’s unique hypo-allergenic properties also help to keep you from waking with sinus headaches, runny or stuff nose, itchy throat and watery or puffy eyes by reducing contact with dust mites and their waste.
