When something new first arrives on the market, it will no doubt be met with equal amounts of fascination and suspicion. The amount of times we have been promised miracle products which turn out to be outdated in a matter of months has left us much more wary about buying such wonder items. One such instance of our scepticism was with memory form, or Visco Elastic Foam to give it its proper title.
We all had mattresses and they had been serving us fine for many years, thank you very much, so why should we go out and by this new fangled type of foam?Even with it now being a well-trusted and very in-demand product, some people still are yet to even so much as try a memory foam mattress and as a result still are yet to know exactly what the benefits, or indeed the disadvantages are.
When it comes to normal mattresses, there are a few advantages. Price is one, seeing as they will usually be a cheaper alternative to memory foam. The other advantage is simply that we will already have a normal mattress and, therefore, it may well be easier just to keep the one we already have.
However, that is where the advantages of normal ones end. Memory foam alternatives meanwhile have many benefits over their run of the mill counterparts. The foam moulds to the body meaning that pressure is relieved from specific areas and even spread far more evenly across the whole of our bodies. In turn, sleeping is a far more comfortable process and all manner of ailments can be removed, helping even those with many physical problems get comfortable.
It also means that any position can suddenly be comfortable rather than someone feeling a necessity to sleep on their side or their back. Ultimately, whilst the price may be far higher, memory foam will simply offer a far better night’s sleep for everyone.
