A term that is not commonly used in everyday conversation is ‘visco elastic’. Visco elastic foam is another way of saying memory foam. The method of manufacturing visco elastic foam varies depending on the formula used by the company. These different formulas change the qualities of the foam. For instance, some types of visco elastic foam might be more resilient to changes in the shape of a body that is lying on them. It might take longer to mold to the exact shape of the person. Visco foam is very solid and dense. This means that most substances cannot pass through the surface. However, the foam also displays elastic properties. It is able to recover its shape over a certain period of time. It will soften when you lie on it, but will return to its original shape when you get up.


This type of foam has been around for 50 years. In fact, it was originally invented by NASA as material that would have been used for the comfort and safety of astronauts during launch. People liked it so much it started being used in more and more instances and really blew up in mattress form when Tempurpedic released its memory foam mattress. Now you can find it in seat cushions, pillows and even shoes!


Memory foam has certainly progressed a long way since it was first invented. Visco elastic memory foam is often combined with materials that regulate the temperature of the human body. The consolidation of these materials usually results in a cool and supportive place to sleep. It is typically a dense, yet comfortable feeling for a sleeper. Usually, it is a good idea to check out the density of the foam mattress that you are considering. If it is below a certain density level, it may not be a good quality and might not perform as well or last as long as you would like it to.
