Benefits of a NASA Foam Mattress

Share it Please

A NASA foam mattress can improve sleep patterns as well as alleviate pain in various parts of the body. Unlike other mattresses, memory foam's unique construction combined with the open cell technology of the materials used, provides a night's sleep that is more invigorating than that of traditional beds.

Improves Posture

The open cell technology used to make memory foam mattresses allows them to conform to the shape and curve of the human body. The special technology employs the heat to displace the weight of the body uniformly across the area of the mattress it covers. As the mattress conforms to the body, it reduces stress placed along areas of the spine keeping it in alignment.

Foam mattresses also allow muscles to relax. Conventional mattresses cause a person's spine to bend with the weight of the body as they try to sleep. This places stress on the muscles and can causing cramping and tightness, affecting a person's posture and bone health. When a person gets a restful night's sleep, they wake up relaxed and refreshed and better prepared to take on the busy day ahead.

Foam Mattresses Maintains Body Temperature

Body heat helps muscles to remain flexible during sleep. Foam mattresses help hold body heat so it doesn't dissipate through the sheets, causing parts of the body to cool and stiffening muscles. Retaining body heat within the NASA foam mattress also helps to keep circulation flowing smoothly through all areas of the body, including the extremities.

Foam mattresses help keep a person warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The same open cell technology that allows a mattress to conform to the body also works to dissipate heat in warm summer months. Maintaining a constant temperature helps a person to sleep better and prevents discomfort. Extreme hot or cold temperatures can cause a person to toss and turn keeping them awake and preventing them from getting any useful rest.

Constant Even Pressure

Memory foam mattresses maintain constant pressure on all areas of the body. While traditional mattresses place the most pressure on the heaviest parts of the body, memory foam reduces pressure on heavier areas preventing the risk of bed sores and lesions. With less pressure being placed on the hips, buttocks and upper back, circulation is maintained keeping tissues oxygenated and healthy.

With even pressure on all points of the body that come in contact with the NASA foam mattress, tissues remain healthy and are less likely to bruise. Elderly patients especially, will benefit from the evenly placed pressure memory foam mattresses provide. Increased circulation and improved sleep patterns will help to prevent injury and illness.
