Materials and Construction
The mattress has got two layers. The top layer is a 2.5-inch layer of SureTemp Memory Foam. The bottom layer is a 9.5-inch Support-Plus Foam. Thus, the top layer provides all the fine characteristics of memory foam like body-contouring, pain and stress relieving at pressure points, and the ability of the sleeper to get a very comfortable sink which is aptly supported by the lower support foam base.
The top layer of visco-elastic memory foam is the result of years of innovation and product development over the past twenty years during which memory foam mattress is no longer a novelty as they were in the past. They are now quite popular as they are affordable and offer a very good alternative to the ubiquitous coil spring beds. The progress over the last twenty years in terms of better product development has been the result of continuous innovation and technological advancement over these years. The invention of the memory foam mattress goes back to 1960s when there was a space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. A lot of highly innovative and beneficial products were discovered as a result of this competition, and the visco-elastic memory foam was one of these innovations. It was originally developed for NASA in 1966 and was required to deflect and cushion the strong effects of gravity which was experienced by astronauts at the time when their spacecraft took off and also when it re-entered into the atmosphere. A lot of consumer and medical-related benefits were realized for this innovation, and later, a public company got the rights to sell memory foam and introduced mattress with memory foam in the 90s. The mattress industry had not had any particular innovation which would transform the outlook of the industry since the last 100 years. With this introduction, the mattress industry went through a watershed moment.
The sale of the memory foam mattresses has been rising ever since. In 2019, the memory foam mattresses are responsible for 20% sales of mattresses on an industry level, and this figure is fast increasing by the day. As far as customer satisfaction is concerned, the memory foam mattresses are rated as the highest. The 2.5-inch layer of SureTemp Memory Foam offs a lot of benefits. This layer allows one to get pressure point relief. Initially, memory foam had been introduced into the medical field because of this property. This layer helps to protect, cushion, and comfort individuals who lie down on the mattress and releases a lot of stress from such pressure points as the hips and shoulders. Etc. When a person lays in a particular position for a long time and does not move, the gravity exerts a pressure downwards ad the bedding provides an upward resistance which opposes the gravitational pull downwards. The person lying on the mattress is affected by these forces, and this/her tissues, as well as the blood circulation, might get affected. The use of memory foam enables prevention from sores, and it also reduces the pain in sensitive areas. The pressure-relieving benefits of the memory foam layer in this mattress are used to help prevent pressure sores and minimize pain in sensitive areas. As one lays down on the top layer of this mattress, the layer yields underneath the body and adjusts to the shape of the body. It does not force the sleeper to contour to the mattress. The coil spring beds usually push back the body upwards. The memory foam layer does not place any untoward upward pressure on the body.
The top layer of the mattress enables the mattress to accommodate al types of sleepers, which include back, stomach, and side sleepers. The memory foam layer has been designed to cradle and mold every part of the body quite evenly, and this feature allows one to settle down in the most comfortable position without involving any pressure points. For back sleepers, the memory foam layer curves itself to the shape of the spine and thus provides a high level of lumbar support. It leads to relaxing the back. As far as side sleepers are concerned, the memory foam layer fully accommodates their hips as well as shoulders and supports the waist. This allows the spine to remain quite even. As for the people who prefer to sleep on their stomachs, this 2.5-inch layer of memory foam helps their backs to take the right shape and also relieves pressure points.
The 2.5-inch memory foam layer of the 12-inch mattress also minimizes the waves that are produced by motion on a traditional foam mattress. This disturbs couples in particular. If the couples have different sleeping schedules or if they are light sleepers, this could be troubling. The memory foam layer in the mattress ensures that the memory foam would absorb the motion and isolate it and not transfer it to the rest of the mattress area. If one rolls over or even igets out of bed, the sleep partner would not be jolted or bounced around.
The bottom layer of the mattress is a 9.5-inch thick Support-Plus Foam which provides the necessary pushback or support to the top layer of the mattress and to the body. It is thick enough to provide adequate support to the sleeper and and sleep partner. The support foam base is a higher density foam which replaces a coil spring base in all-foam mattresses. It does not allow the body to sink into the mattress and provides the necessary push back and support to ensure that sleep in both comfortable as well as supportive. The mattress also includes a Quilted Soft poly-cotton blend mattress cover which provides a high level of breathability and the mattress and enables the moisture and sweat to be wicked away by circulating airflow through the quilted cover. This ensures that the sleeper remains and cool even in warm summer nights. Ianthe winter nights, one stays warm and dry.

The level of comfort, therefore, with this mattress is quite high. In many other types of mattresses like the ones with materials like coil springs generally, concentrate the weight on those springs which are pressed as they are contacted with the body. Because of this, hips shoulders and heels get the most weight. This means that both the back as well as the side sleepers sleeping on a coil spring mattress would not have the required support on their lumbar areas.
