The Tempur-Pedic Mattress has been around for over 30 years, first being introduced in Sweden by Fagerdala World Foams. A Tempur-Pedic mattress is composed of a viscoelastic foam material that was originally formulated by NASA in the 1960’s. NASA wanted to create a new material that would absorb the G-Force of astronauts traveling into space and to help improve survivability in case of an accident.
Sweden took what NASA developed and altered it to create the most luxurious foam mattress that would revolutionize the mattress industry for years to come.
- Support: The center layer is Tempur Material, its proprietary foam which is designed to soften from body heat to create individualized pressure relief that shifts throughout the night as you change positions.
- Hugging feel: The uppermost layer is a cushiony comfort layer that gives this mattress a feel of hugging the sleeper.
- Motion-Isolating: The two layers of foam above the coils lend themselves to the motion isolation of the hybrid mattress. Typically, all-foam mattresses do the best job at motion isolation, but the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Pro-Adapt could be a good choice for couples or co-sleepers.
- Pain/Pressure relieving: Mattress experts say those with back pain might benefit from the unique feel of this mattress, which combines contouring memory foam with medium support from the coils. Side sleepers might also find the support of this medium firmness mattress to be a good fit.
