Sleeping on a memory foam mattress is like “sleeping on a cloud“ according to Australian cricketer James Faulkner.
FAULKNER is an ambassador for Tempur, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of memory foam mattresses and pillows, along with fellow athletes swimmer Mack Horton and netballer Liz Watson.
It is a claim endorsed up by Fountain Gate Harvey Norman bedding proprietor Avelyn Miranda.
Ms Miranda sleeps on a memory foam mattress herself and encourages customers to try the amazing sleep technology at the Fountain Gate store.
Harvey Norman stocks a range of Tempur mattresses and pillows and is the exclusive stockist of Australian made Body Balance memory foam mattresses.
Memory foam cradles the body, allowing the user to sink into the mattress rather than lie on top of it as with a traditional inner spring mattress.
Memory foam was developed by NASA in the 1980s as a pressure-absorbing material designed to help cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. Wanting to adapt the technology for domestic use, two companies in Sweden and Denmark came together to create Tempur material for use in mattresses.
Tempur is made from billions of visco-elastic spherical shaped, open cells. These cells are designed to respond to the heat and weight of your body, meaning they shift and move to mould to your body’s exact contours.
This not only provides the support you need, it also eliminates pressure points to allow blood to flow freely throughout the night. With less tossing and turning, you can enjoy a more comfortable night’s rest and better quality sleep.
The luxurious Australian made Body Balance memory foam also provides excellent pressure relief and comfort. It cradles the curves of your body whilst evenly distributing body weight and alleviating pressure points for a more comfortable sleep.
Body Balance memory foam individually conforms to your body shape in any sleeping position. This individual contouring results in minimal partner disturbance, and a more restful sleep through the night.
“I love the fact that there is zero partner disturbance which is great if your partner tosses and turns or if they are a shift worker and have to get up early or go to bed late. You won’t feel them moving in the bed,“ Ms Miranda said.
She explained other benefits included minimal ’dipping“ in the centre of the mattress and the fact that memory foam mattresses do not need rotating as is the case with inner spring mattresses.
