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.
