The “Visco-Elastic” or “Memory Foam” and it’s improvement, “AQUA GEL Memory Foam, was developed for the NASA space program. No seriously, it really was. This type of foam was originally designed to relieve pressure on astronauts caused by “G-Forces” during take off. It works because “Visco-Elastic” foam is five times denser than regular foams and is also temperature sensitive.In normal temperatures it is firm but when you lay down to sleep it reacts to the body’s temperature and begins to mold itself to the body’s shape. Weight is distributed evenly, thus relieving pressure. This allows you to sleep more soundly without tossing and turning. The mattress is 8” thick. The top 3” is Visco-Elastic Foam; it is body heat & body weight sensitive foam that will mold itself to the shape of your body. The bottom 5” is a heavy duty LX (open cell) foam (poly-urethane), which is used to support the top 3” layer, so you will have a nice contouring feel on the top and good firm support underneath. The advantage of this is that it will relieve the pressure points and keep your body in an orthopedically correct position.
Our Latest innovation is the introduction of “AQUA GEL” to our mattresses. This improvement has been added to reduce the heat often associated with foam mattresses. This is usually an upgrade but with us it is now included free with all memory and latex foam mattresses purchased from us.
