The memory foam mattress has seen a unique rise in recognition. Less conforming traditional foam - or latex - toppers can also be found but neither possess the viscoelastic heat sensitive property that makes memory foam so comfortable. Open celled memory foam is typically the preferred type. This means that the cells (air bubble) are not closed but are interconnected to one another. This is commonly referred to as ’open cell structure’. However, viscoelastic is more than this; the mattress is not only sensitive to weight but also to heat. The more heat that is applied the more the mattress will yield.
Viscoelastic foam conforms to the shape of the person sleeping on top of it. This means it provides far better support than other types of mattress and is extremely good at relieving pressure points, while still supporting areas like the lower back.
Although many have enjoyed a better sleep on a memory foam mattress there are some who found that sleeping on one felt a lot warmer than sleeping on an inner spring mattress. One solution has been to introduce a new layer of high-density convoluted foam between the base foam block and the top viscoelastic foam. Some mattresses also utilize open celled memory foam which is much more efficient at air circulation and cooling.
