Memory FoamMemory Foam - - Comfort House has sold temperature sensitive foam sleep products since they were first introduced in the 1990s. Temperature sensitive mattress pads, pillows, and cushions help you sleep better and reduce neck and back pain. The name memory foam didn't evolve until they had been on the market for several years.
What is temperature sensitive memory foam?
Temperature sensitive foam is a comfort material that
was originally developed for the NASA space program. At
first touch you'll know that it's like no other
sleep product you've ever felt before- what we can
best describe as a marshmallow-like feel. When exposed to
the temperature and weight of your body it is readily
compressed. Pressure is distributed evenly over the entire
supported surface, forming a mold around
you. When the pressure is removed, it takes several seconds
to resume its shape (see Isotonic foam hand imprint
The material used to make temperature sensitive products is
also referred to as visco-elastic foam, memory
foam, pressure relieving foam, slow recovery foam, and slow
release foam. Temperature sensitive sleep products are
marketed by many companies under a wide variety of
Although temperature sensitive foam originates from
numerous manufacturing plants, the foam with the best
pressure relief properties is available from only a very
select few. That is why there is such a difference in the
feel between competing temperature sensitive foam products
such as pillows. For instance, some are too soft, some
are too firm, and some it would be just as comfortable
sleeping on rocks.
Of course, choice of pillows and other sleep comfort
products is entirely a personal preference. In our
opinion, Isotonic™ temperature sensitive foam products, also referred to as SleepBetter by Carpenter, are a giant cut above the rest, not to mention the best value for the money.
