History of Memory Foam
History of Memory Foam
Memory foam was developed in the late 60's by a group of chemists at NASA's Ames Research Center.
The goal was to create a material that would relieve astronauts of the pressure generated by the
g-forces they experienced during lift-off. Their challenge was to develop a material that would
provide both support and cushion and prevent the creation of pressure points.
1st Generation Memory Foam
Many versions of this 1st generation "memory foam" were extensively tested. The first versions were too brittle and tended to break down chemically after about 2 years. The manufacturing process released unpleasant fumes that were potentially dangerous in the confined areas of a spacecraft. These first generations of memory foam also lacked durability, flaking and breaking apart after only minimal use. Due to this and other issues, memory foam was never actually used inside space shuttles.
Next Generation Memory Foam
NASA lost interest in memory foam and sold the technology. Fagerdala World Foams of Sweden,
one of Europe's largest foam producing companies, began experiments in the 1980s to perfect memory
foam for consumer use.
Innovation and the Future of Memory Foam
Innovation is key in the development of memory foam. Companies are addressing issues such as
memory foam's sensitivity to temperature and its performance as a pressure relieving material.
We have been fortunate to be able to position ourselves by representing one of the most respected
manufacturers of polyurethane foam, not just in America but in the world. Thanks to the work of
our mattress has overcome issues of the foam getting too hard when it gets cool and too hot and
gooey when it gets warm. You will love our mattress. It's "just right". We only offer one type of
mattress but it is simply the best. Coincidentally, it is also very affordable and is certified made in the USA.
Please note, to better serve you, we are currently moving our entire operation to a new facility. Shipments may be delayed by up to 3-4 business days. Please know we are doing the very best we can to process orders as fast as possible.
We are sending out tracking numbers for all orders that have been processed for shipping. If you track your order and see that there is no transit information, it simply means we have created the label but have not been able to ship it yet. Once your order goes out, transit information will appear. We have done this to expedite the process of fulfilling orders.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this exciting move to our new home.
