Originally developed for NASA in the 1960s
for airplane seats, memory foam is now
found in many everyday products ranging
from pillows and mattresses, to office
supplies and footwear.
Take a close look at your office chair – it is
likely that it has a memory foamcomponent.
Or perhaps your feet are
used to the comfort of memory foam slippers
. Although initially the cost of memory foam
material was very expensive, advances in its
production have reduced the cost, making it
more accessible for widespread use. And,
one of the most common products boasting the benefit of this material is – you guessed it – your mattress.
Among the many features of memory foam, its high-density foam composition is both highly soft and energy absorbent, making it an ideal surface for sleeping.
