Visco-Elastic Memory Foam
Have you ever wondered how anyone got the idea to start sleeping on springs in the first place? I mean, think about it for a minute, what would it feel like to lay down on the bare springs? The creation of a coil spring mattress was first documented, by patent, in 1865, and there have only been a couple of minor changes, to that original design, in the following 140 years.
The Difference Is In Total Body Support
One way, in which a memory foam mattress is better for you is the characteristic of total body support. A memory foam mattress and a coil spring mattress differ greatly in this respect. A coil spring mattress makes your body conform to it. The pressure, or force, from the coil springs, in the mattress, is exerted against your body.
It’s kind of like a push and shove match. You’re pushing down on the springs, forcing them to retreat and they’re shoving back against you, trying to uncoil. On a coil spring mattress, your body must adjust to the mattress’s shape. This is why you complain of sore muscles and stiffness, when you wake up in the morning.
With a memory foam mattress, the opposite happens.
The Visco-Elastic range of products works with the heat of your body to mould to your exact shape for a more supportive sleep.
This is how it works…
When you lie on this “elastic” material you can actually feel it working. What you can feel are the tiny cells shifting and re-organising their position to conform around your individual body contours. This shifting happens over a 2 minute period, using the heat from your body. When your body weight has been totally supported any “hollow” areas such as under the lower back cleverly “fill in” with the Visco-Elastic foam, supporting every inch of your body.
This is very different to ordinary polyurethane foam mattresses which simply compact under your weight causing a lumpy, squashed mass that feels warm with no air circulation. Visco-Elastic foam retains proper air circulation throughout the foam and around your body for a more comfortable night’s sleep.
