Did you know it's recommended that adults between the ages of 26-64 years old get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night?

Up to one-third of your life is spent sleeping.

It's important you sleep in a comfortable bed to maximize sleep. A comfortable mattress can help you get the best possible night's sleep, so you wake refreshed and ready for a productive day.

Read on to learn more about memory foam mattresses.

What's a Memory Foam Mattress?

Memory foam is a byproduct of the space age, developed for NASA in the 1960s. This visco-elastic memory foam was used by the astronauts. It deflected and cushioned them during take-off and atmospheric re-entry.

Memory foam mattresses weren't introduced to the public until the 1990s. These foam mattresses now comprise 20% of mattress sales and rate high in owner satisfaction.

Why Should You Buy Memory Foam?

Motion Isolation and Conforming Ability

Are you a light sleeper? Do you wake every time your partner tosses and turns or gets out of bed? Memory foam isolates motion. If your partner is tossing, you won't feel it.

Motion isolation allows you to sleep comfortably even if someone else moves around or even gets in and out of bed.

The mattress also conforms to your body which produces a cradling sensation to aid in comfortable sleep.

Decreased Back Pain

Low back pain is the number two cause of disability around the world. This common condition makes sleeping painful for many.

A good bed is essential to combat lack of sleep from painful nights tossing and turning.

Memory foam is a good choice for those with back pain. These mattresses distribute your weight equally across the mattress. This minimizes pressure points and lends support to the lower back.

This can minimize or prevent back pain.


Foam mattresses are denser than their innerspring counterparts. This means allergens such as mold and pet dander won't make their way into the mattress.

The density of the foam structure is also a good dust mite repellant. Like the mold and dander, the dust mites can't make their way into the structure as easily as they can with an innerspring mattress.

Median Price Point

Memory foam mattresses aren't budget busters. These mattresses fall squarely in the median in terms of price. Expect to spend anywhere from $200 to over $4,000 with the average queen costing around $1,500.

You can expect these mattresses to last between 7 and 10 years.

Owner Satisfaction

Average-sized and heavy people report an 80% satisfaction rate or higher. Small folks report about 75% owner satisfaction. That compares well to other mattresses with innerspring owner satisfaction a little over 60%.

Bedroom Haven

Studies prove that a good night's sleep is important for health and productivity. To obtain a good night's sleep, your bedroom should be a sanctuary from clutter and worry, and a comfortable bed is the most important part!
