Memory foam foam softens in reaction to body heat, allowing it to mold to a warm body in a few minutes. Memory foam is also pressure-sensitive and molds quickly to the shape of a body pressing against it, returning to its original shape once the pressure is removed.
Memory foam was developed in 1966 by NASA’s to improve the safety of aircraft cushions. The temperature-sensitive memory foam was initially referred to as slow spring back foam. The property of firmness (hard to soft) of memory foam is used in determining comfort.
Memory foam has an open-cell structure that reacts to body heat and weight by ‘moulding’ to the sleeper’s body, helping relieve pressure points.
