Why choose memory foam
as a pillow core?

Introduction:

Memory foam, also known as compression foam, is a new type of material. It can provide customization according to the shape of the head and neck, which matches the curved requirements of the body parts, so as to get enough support and give people a good quality of sleep. As when selecting any pillow core, we usually consider factors like support, comfort and quality when making our decision. Memory foam pillows have gained in popularity among buyers because of their distinctive design; in this article we'll investigate both their advantages and disadvantages before considering its uses to come to a decision regarding an ideal memory foam choice as pillow core material.

What is Memory Foam?

The structure of memory foam is an open cellular structure. It has the characteristics of temperature and pressure reduction. At that time, the American HEALTHMAN company applied this material to the space shuttle, creating a comfortable working and living environment for astronauts.The main purpose of developing this material is to relieve the stress on the astronauts and protect the spine of the astronauts, especially during the shuttle return and departure from the ground. Memory foam and GPS (Global Satellite Positioning System) are called the two major inventions of space technology. The biggest science in the 21st century will be life science, and space science and technology have made great contributions to the research of human life science. In the early 1990s, the Swedish Fagerdala company once again developed memory foam for civilian (medical) products, the first in the medical emergency, monitoring system has been widely promoted and applied.Subsequently, the application of memory foam gradually spread in the fields of car travel, office learning, home leisure, maternal and child care. Today, we are fortunate enough to enjoy the treatment of former astronauts.

Benefits of Memory Foam

1. Stable chemical properties: Since the structure and molecular makeup of memory foam are extremely stable, it is safe and safe, making it difficult to release a noxious smell. However it is not a cause of allergic reactions and is characterized by its properties to prevent flames.
2. Soft and comfortable: When you lie down, the soft touch gives you a gradual sinking feeling, as if you are on a soft quilt. With the memory foam lumbar cushion, after the initial deformation, you will feel less pressure on your lower back and relieve back pain.
3. Good breath ability : The unique bubble hole structure ensures the breath ability and moisture absorption required by the skin, keeping it warm in winter and cool in summer.
4. Excellent all-around performance: Excels in absorbing shock, minimizing vibration and providing low rebound, making it the ideal cushioning material to protect astronauts during capsule landings.
5. Slow rebound characteristics: The surface of memory foam is smooth.After pressing the handprint,it will slowly dissipate, showing the unique slow rebound ability, which is incomparable to other materials.
6. Antimicrobial properties: Strong adsorption helps to keep the environment clean and maintains hygiene even after a long period of time without washing.
7. High durability: Memory foam can be molded into various shapes as needed, adapting to a wide range of products and maintaining a high level of comfort for a long time.

Disadvantages of Memory Foam

1. Heat accumulation:A common problem with memory foam pillows is that they retain heat. This is because to make a memory foam core you need to heat up the raw material before it can be molded. So then when one pushes down on it, it retains heat and does not dissipate easily. Memory foam is the least breathable and the hottest of all pillow materials. Some people may find it uncomfortably warm in post-tropical countries, but in colder climates, this is rather its advantage.
2. Memory foam pillows come in different price ranges. Based on the manufacturer You can buy inexpensive memory foam pillows or invest many money on high-end ones. The accurate memory foam pillows may have a higher price than traditional feather pillows and can cause inconvenience to customers who have on a budget.
3. Insufficient support: Although memory foam can be molded to the body's curves, its support may be relatively weak and may not be sufficient for consumers who is heavy.

Usage Scenarios of Memory Foam:

1. Work pressure, cervical fatigue office workers, cervical spondylosis patients.

Traditional pillows can not fit the natural curvature of the cervical spine, will make the cervical spine hanging, physiological curvature straightened, even if the sleep is also in a state of tension at work, many people have fallen asleep, neck and shoulder pain, headache, nausea, numbness of the upper limbs and other cervical spine disease; and always feel the wind leakage of the neck after sleeping uncomfortable. Memory foam pillow: according to the principle of ergonomics, in the sleep to eliminate the traditional pillow to make the cervical spine hanging, forward bending caused by wear and tear and harm, cervical spine in any sleeping position can be scientifically supported, can effectively restore the spine to its normal alignment, correct the affected vertebrae subluxation, blood vessels and spinal cord and other tissues of the stimulation or compression, relief of cervical muscle spasms, correction of the cervical spine physiological curvature, and effectively alleviate the cervical spine soreness, pain and stiffness, the cervical vertebra has a very good recovery from cervical spine disease. Cervical spondylosis has a very good rehabilitation effect

2. Elderly people with cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, hypertension and other diseases.

Traditional pillows can not fit the natural curvature of the cervical spine, will make the cervical spine hanging, physiological curvature straightened, even if the sleep is also in a state of tension at work, many people have fallen asleep, neck and shoulder pain, headache, nausea, numbness of the upper limbs and other cervical spine disease; and always feel the wind leakage of the neck after sleeping uncomfortable. Memory foam pillow: according to the principle of ergonomics, in the sleep to eliminate the traditional pillow to make the cervical spine hanging, forward bending caused by wear and tear and harm, cervical spine in any sleeping position can be scientifically supported, can effectively restore the spine to its normal alignment, correct the affected vertebrae subluxation, blood vessels and spinal cord and other tissues of the stimulation or compression, relief of cervical muscle spasms, correction of the cervical spine physiological curvature, and effectively alleviate the cervical spine soreness, pain and stiffness, the cervical vertebra has a very good recovery from cervical spine disease. Cervical spondylosis has a very good rehabilitation effect.

3. Low sleep quality, easy insomnia, dreamy light sleepers.

Pillow soft, hard, high and short discomfort and improper choice of materials, will directly trigger sleep disorders: traditional pillows can only support the head, neck is suspended, cervical spine under pressure, blood flow is not smooth, resulting in nighttime brain microcirculation disorders, there will be insomnia, snoring, dreaming, waking up early, neurasthenia and other sleep problems. Sleep quality is difficult to ensure, wake up and even feel headache, dizziness, even more tired than not sleeping. Memory foam pillow: the use of pressure-absorbing memory foam material, you can make the human body neck and spine under the pressure of gravity to reduce 90%, due to the ability to release the pressure, it can significantly reduce the number of times you turn over 80% of the sleep process, the entire body is completely relaxed, to ensure that the brain blood supply is sufficient to improve sleep and improve blood circulation, and effectively ensure that the body of each group of organs of the rest and metabolism. Adhering to the use, to realize fall asleep quickly, sleep deeply, sleep fragrantly, turn over less, dream less, enjoy high-quality perfect sleep every day, wake up in the morning refreshed, the whole body relaxed.
