What is VISCO-ELASTIC "Memory" Foam?
Visco-elastic foam or memory foam was originally developed for NASA to reduce the G Force pressure on astronauts during takeoff and re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. For many years, it has been used in Hospital and medical applications in the treatment and cure of pressure sores. It greatly reduces pressure points and provides relief to back pain sufferers or patients that are confined to their beds for long periods of time.
Visco-elastic foam is well-known for its memory and its amazing capacity to conform to a body's contours and then bounce back to its original shape; it adapts to different types of pressure and provides total body comfort. The support factor comes from the layer that goes under the memory foam.
The best natural memory foam mattress should not only have natural memory foam on top but it should also have the best and most natural foam under it. The Koosh Natural that we use in the core is available in 6 different compressions. It is the World's first soy-based high resiliency foam. It is commonly used in commercial applications like the seats at the Air Canada Centre, VIA Rail seats and Airport Seating.
Koosh Natural is a premium durable product available to you at a very affordable factory direct price. It will support your memory foam and will not soften with use like the polyurethane foam grades that are commonly used in premium memory foam mattresses sold in stores. Some memory foam cores are even filled with scrap foam that is cemented together, see Mattress Problems.
Be careful, there are many imposters.
There are lots of different grades of memory foam, we carry the top seven. Some mattress manufacturers use light-weight memory foam that is meant for a chair's head rest as a topper in their mattress. The average head weighs 11 lbs., the whole body weighs much more than that. Come in and let us show you the difference.
Our Memorapedic natural memory foam mattress is made with our Enurtia visco-soy memory foam. It is the most natural soy-based memory foam available in the world. If you are looking for an all natural memory foam mattress we have an all natural latex rubber that has the characteristics of memory foam. It is very soft on top, it leaves an impression but it is much more supportive than conventional memory foam.
Equally as important as the grade of memory foam that you choose is the support layer of foam that goes under it. Most will give you a good piece of 3" memory foam but then will seize the opportunity to give you a less expensive 5" or 6" piece of polyurethane foam under it. This will keep the cost and selling price down but in as little as 2 years it may also let you down. The type of foam used will determine how long you will be supported before you feel like you are sinking into the mattress. With 45 different grades of foam we can give you the right combination at half the retail price.
