Tempur-Pedic is an American company that specialises in making mattresses using a variety of memory foam. Tempur-Pedic is fast becoming a by-word for the very latest in memory foam mattress technology. The company produces a wide range of foam mattresses, pillows and accessories and sustains large advertising and marketing campaigns, featuring celebrities. If you hear about a Tempur-Pedic mattress, remember that it is just a brand, in the same way that Hoover is a brand of vacuum cleaner. The original memory foam material was developed by NASA for its space program, but mattress manufacture is now one of its primary uses. It took 30 years for Swedish and American scientists to develop the material into the Tempur-Pedic Swedish Sleep System, which is now marketed across the world. What makes a Tempur-Pedic mattress different? A Tempur-Pedic mattress has a number of claims to its name: ? Therapeutic properties - because the material supports your body so well, it relieves the pressure that's often placed on key parts of your body during sleep. This helps to prevent strained muscles or aching joints. ? Temperature control - memory foam moulds itself to the shape of the sleeper by recognising body temperature and reacting to it. When you change position during the night, the foam senses a change in temperature and re-moulds itself accordingly. The cells in the foam prevent you from overheating, even though it's your body temperature that reacts with the foam. ? Flexibility - the construction of a Tempur-Pedic mattress means that it can accommodate all types of sleepers, of all shapes and sizes and still give the maximum amount of support and comfort. You may see adverts for Tempur-Pedic mattresses. If you can, try one out and compare it with other memory foam mattresses on the market. You may find that it really suits you, or you may discover that another brand or type of construction is better for you. Mattress Next Day is probably the largest mattress superstore on the internet.
