Memory Foam Features and Characteristics
The two key features of Memory foam that make it important to bedding are:
It was features such as these that proved valuable to the medical industry in preventing decubitus ulcers
(bed sores). The combined effects of heat and pressure cause the
memory foam to mold to the body shape and spread the weight over a
greater surface area. By increasing the surface
area which supports the weight of the body, the issues leading to decubitus ulcers are mitigated.
Memory foam is created from polyurethane with additional chemicals
to alter its viscosity and reactance to heat. The warmer areas of foam
next to the body are softer, while the cooler foam further from the
body is firmer, thus giving a firm, yet soft feel to the user.
There is widespread agreement that memory foam mattresses have great
attributes, but there are so many from which to choose, and the prices
vary dramatically. How does one make an intelligent choice?
There are four important ingredients for a good choice:
Location of Manufacture
Times have changed in the bedding industry and there is no question
that more and more items are being made in the far-east at less
cost. However before you purchase a memory foam bed, there are a
few things you need to know about their packaging and shipping.
It is a long way from Asia to the U.S. and to keep bed costs
competitive, these off-shore manufacturers must minimize their shipping costs. As a result, the
manufacturers go to great lengths to vacuum pack the foam beds,
compressing the foam down to the smallest possible size. Sounds
like a good idea. Compress the beds; ship more beds, keep costs
low. The only problem is they call it Memory Foam for a reason.
Memory foam beds that are vacuum packed for transit typically stay
in that state for 8-10 weeks and once placed in a residential
environment, depending on the level of compression of the foam,
may take days or weeks to totally decompress and return to its original
shape and size. In some cases it may never return to its original
For best results insure that the bed you purchase, along with its
foam components, has been manufactured in the country in which you
Integrity of the seller
Most bed purchases are made with the intent of keeping the bed in
service for many years. Fly-by-night sellers of foam beds can
assemble memory foam beds
from sub-par components that will break-down over a short period of
time. Sleep DynamiX is a family owned business staffed by high
itegrity individuals whoose only motivation is to sell as many of the
best foam beds as possible for the lowest possible price. Sleep
DynamiX seeks to profit from word of mouth advertising based on the high quality of their product and reasonable price.
In the world of memory foam beds, t's all about the materials.
Quality foam beds cannot be sold at low prices without the economical
procurement of the materials. Sleep DynamiX has long term
relationships with vendors, many of them local to Sleep DynamiX, for
memory foam and all bedding components. The long lasting
relationships of Sleep DynamiX personnel with the furniture and bedding
industry, combined with their high volume purchasing enables them to
provide the deep discounts reflected in their prices.
Quality of Materials
Probably no other aspect of the memory foam bed is as important as
the quality of materials. Sleep DynamiX memory foam beds
are constructed with foam from Vita ®, the world's largest foam manufacturer. Vita ® has trademarked their Visco-Elastic memory foam as Vitality ® and their base foam as Ultra Cel ®. Ultra Cel ®
foam is considered to be among the most expensive and durable
polyurethanes in the world and, up until now, rlelgated to
ultra-premium leather cusioning in the designer sofa industry. No
known competitor is incorporating such high quality polyurethane into
their base foam. Sleep DynamiX memory foam beds utilize a top layer
of the Vitality Visco Elastic foam overlaying a base of the Ultra Cel ® foam.
As a result, memory foam beds from Sleep DynamiX are assured of being assembled from only the very best components.
