In this orthopedic mattress review we would like to draw your attention towards the already popular manufacturer of mattresses Tempur–Pedic. You have probably seen its commercial with the Tempur-pedic memory foam mattress, and a glass of wine, in a TV advert or show.
In case you did not, it is about putting a glass wine on one side of the bed while an adult jumps up and down on the other side of the bed. Surprisingly for everyone at that time (early 1990s), and still for today, the glass does not fall over to spill the wine. With this test it was proven that the Tempur – Pedic mattress absorbs shocks, and that your sleeping partner will not feel when you move in bed.
The popularity of this brand created the incentive for this orthopedic mattress review. The company uses a special Tempurpedic Visco Memory Foam that they simply call TEMPUR for their sleeping products. To understand what this material is, we have to go back to the 1960s, the years when NASA invented for its astronauts the shock absorbing visco–elastic foam also known as memory foam, to protect them from the big G forces in the shuttle.
Years later, in the 1980s, NASA released that formula publicly, but the material was very expensive to make and too unstable for commercial use. It took many years for private companies to perfect it and create competitive products to sell on the market. TEMPUR is the material name of the product range produced by Tempur-Pedic.
More than that, it is the only material recognized by NASA as the perfected visco–elastic foam. Other companies perfected the formula in their own various ways and created what is generally termed as “memory foam.” The difference between TEMPUR and these other brands is that only TEMPUR is a strictly regulated material, endorsed by NASA. With all the others, it is up to you to find out how good they are.
Other points to be made in this Tempur–pedic orthopedic mattress review are related to performance.
Besides being shock absorbent, a TEMPUR mattress also reacts to heat in an innovative way: it will melt down and be softer only in the areas where you need it (like under your hips) and more stronger and supportive in the area between your hips and torso. In this way your spine will be straight, with no pressure pushing against it. This can be achieved thanks to the nature of the material and disposition of layers inside the mattress.
Also this mattress does not have to be flipped over to alleviate permanent body impressions. The company will also offer you a 20 years warranty to back up the mattress quality.
So, after all this has been said in this orthopedic mattress review, choosing a TEMPUR mattress from Tempur-Pedic is a good idea.
