Memory foam was originally developed in 1966 under contract for NASA to provide relief for astronauts undergoing the extreme physical stress of “G-Forces.” The material that was invented, visco-elastic polyurethane foam – responds to your body’s heat and molds around you, relieving pressure points and improving circulation.
This revolutionary high-density memory foam has been improved many times over the years since its invention. Today’s memory foam provides exceptional therapeutic cushioning and support, significantly reduces pressure points, improves circulation, and optimizes sleep temperature.
Because only memory foam mattresses have all of these unique qualities, they provide a better night’s sleep than conventional inner-spring mattresses.

What is “density” and how does it affect the comfort of memory foam?
Density is the weight of the memory foam measured in cubic feet. In the past density was important in assessing the quality of memory foam. Today, density does not completely determine comfort. Technological breakthroughs have allowed Lasting Impressions Foam (Kool Comfort) and other leading manufacturers of memory foam to produce “open cell” products. These are the best performing products on the market – as the open cell structure, not the density, determines quality and comfort.

Is memory foam sensitive to temperature?
Memory foam mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows have the same properties, so they are all affected by temperature the same way. Your body heat will affect these products quickly and result in a perfect fit in a very short time regardless of the environmental heat or cold. Please note that if, for some reason, your memory foam product has been subjected to temperatures lower than 40 degrees Fahrenheit, it is important that you let it conform naturally to its new indoor environment prior to use.
