What is a Memory Foam Mattress?

A memory foam mattress uses a state-of-the-art cell design that molds to your body's shape based on pressure and body heat. Memory foam is constructed of polyurethane material, and it helps evenly distribute bodyweight to provide comfort and support to certain portions of your body. Some models are made from latex as a hypoallergenic alternative, which reduces growth of dust mites and other allergens. A memory foam mattress can adjust its comfort level depending on temperature. For instance, it tends to be firmer in cooler temperatures and softer in warmer settings. Most models also work with adjustable bases so you can position your bed comfortably as you sleep, watch TV or read a book.
