Supersleeping memory foam mattresses and memory foam pillows reduce restless sleeping and lead to a calm and relaxing nights sleep. Memory foam mattresses have many significant benefits over conventional sprung mattresses, read on to discover more.
Memory foam was developed by NASA to improve the comfort and safety of astronauts since they spend extended periods of time in the same position and under increased G-Force. In a memory foam mattress you effectively float, so 'firmness' does not apply as with a conventional mattress. A memory foam mattress moulds itself, applying even pressure to the entire body.
In a memory foam mattress there are no springs, so no lumps form and they do not sag. If weight is applied to one side of a memory foam mattress the other side is not affected, this prevents disturbing your partner's sleep.
A memory foam mattress is anti-allergenic; it does not allow dead skin cells to penetrate the mattress unlike conventional mattresses. A sprung mattress will collect dead skin cells over the years; this is un-hygienic, attracts parasites and can affect asthma.
Relieving stress and tension is crucial for a good nights sleep. While conventional pillows, mattresses, and cushions restrict blood flow, cause pressure points and build up pain, memory foam spreads your weight more evenly, allowing increased blood flow and circulation.
Supersleeping memory foam is made up of a high-tech temperature sensitive material. The cells inside are spherical with windows, allowing the cells to shift when displaced and reorganize their position to fit to the contours of your body. This provides great stress relief and can reduce restlessness by up to 80%.
Comparison on a conventional mattress and a Supersleeping memory foam mattress.
The following test was completed by using an advanced pressure analysing system. It proved the pressure relieving effectiveness of a memory foam by spreading a measuring sheet over a mattress. The highly accurate sensors can determine
the stress and pressure between the test subject and the mattress over a few square inches to build up an image of pressure points.
Diagram A shows the pressure points when a person sleeps on a conventional sprung mattress. Red and purple colours indicate high pressure points. This results in discomfort leading to restless movement around 80-100
times throughout the night due to blood and oxygen occlusion.
Diagram B shows the result of sleeping on a memory foam mattress. The red and purple colours on Diagram A have changed to green and yellow colours indicating low pressure levels. The user is in a stress free
sleeping environment and this effectively minimizes the tossing and turning during sleep.
International Standard for non-flammability
All our materials are carefully selected and professionally manufactured to meet UK standards.
In addition, with the non-flammability test facility constructed by SGS, we can test and assure all our products meet any international standards for non-flammability.
Categories of non-ignition divide into:
United Kingdom BS5202 Standard Series
United Kingdom BS7176 Standard Series
United Kingdom BS7177 Standard Series
A sample of ordinary foam (left) and a sample of memory foam (right) are placed on a testing frame. Both samples then have a beaker of flammable liquid placed in their centres.
The flammable liquid is ignited and begins to burn. It is not long before the flames ignite the ordinary foam (left) and it begins to burn as well.
The combustion comes to a natural end and the results are clear. The ordinary foam quickly ignited and completely burnt until there was only ashes left. However the memory foam, although damaged by the heat, did not ignite and the fire was contained.
Benefits of a memory foam mattress.
Temperature responsive properties relax tense muscles and promote pressure relief by conforming to the human body's shape and weight.
Provides excellent neck and spine protection and natural alignment as it eliminates the possible damage caused by body pressure.
Encourages better blood circulation, avoiding muscles soreness caused by the compression of nerves.
Memory Foam Mattress Care.
Most memory foam mattresses are compressed and then packaged, this significantly helps with logistics but the drawback is the mattress will remember its packaged state for a few days. Because of this, ideally the mattress should be unpacked and left for three to four days to allow it to expand to its full size before being slept on.
Once a memory foam mattress has been removed from the compressed packaging it will take approximately three hours to reach 80% of its full size; the mattress can be slept on after this period but this may delay the mattress reaching 100% of its size, sometimes taking up to four weeks.
Memory foam does not have any long term care requirements, because it is not porous like a sprung mattress, it will not absorb liquids and small particles. This prevents a build up of skin particles that would otherwise attract unwanted parasites. The cover is machine washable, and an additional cover can be purchased for convenience.
All Supersleeping memory foam products come with a five year pro rata guarantee.
