Tempur-Pedic mattresses were the first to utilize viscoelastic material in the construction of a mattress. Unlike most other manufacturers it only makes memory foam mattresses. It is still the market leader and sets the benchmark - every other mattress manufacture will offer the customer comparisons between their memory foam mattress and Tempur-Pedic - they don't seem to compare their viscoelastic mattress with anyone else! So, is the Tempur-Pedic the best memory foam mattress on the market? Opinions vary; some claim that a lifetime of backache went away when they slept on a Tempur-Pedic, others claim that the mattress sags after only a few months. Also, the memory foam available from Tempur-Pedic does seem to be firmer than its competitors.
Many people will spend considerably more time and money (not to mention effort) in buying other household items like TVs, sofas and flooring than they will on a mattress. But, a mattress is the most important item in any house after all you spend one-third of your life sleeping on one. All too often little or no thought is given to the purchase and yet over 70 million Americans complain of lack of sleep and of feeling tired or achy when they get up in the morning. A good mattress can help you get a good night's sleep and help you feel healthier.
There are some disadvantages to memory toppers. They are usually made of quite synthetic materials although there are more natural ones appearing. These toppers usually have quite a bit of a smell to them and you'll need to air a new one for about a day before you can put it onto your bed. Thankfully it also takes about a day for the thing to actually unravel itself from the packaging that it comes in so it's all okay! Memory foam regardless of the density rating is a dense material. This can lead to toppers being quite difficult to breathe and circulate air. They can mean that a lot of heat that is generated by your body is trapped. Not something that most people like. Most toppers have 'open cell' designs leading to better breathability however you will notice a difference compared to a straight mattress. You can always put another topper on the top such as one made of fibre fill to remove those disadvantages. Some memory foam toppers even come with fiber fill toppings for those people that want that.
One answer is to re-use mattress materials as much as possible. In a mattress recycling center the foam, fabric, and wood are separated, baled, and sold to manufacturers. Steel is recycled at a scrapyard or re-used to fabricate other steel products.
