"Memory foam has a long history. It was originally created for NASA in the 1960s to create a strong, supportive and comfortable seat for airplanes and astronauts. What we call memory foam is technically known as viscoelastic, a high-energy, absorbent elastic material that retains its shape and moves to the exact amount of pressure placed on its surface.
Memory foam responds to the pressure you place on it, and the heat from your body helps soften it just enough to mold it to your body, so it forms a perfect resting place for your head, neck and upper back. Because it only moves to the pressure you have on it, as you shift, it moves with you while keeping the weight of your body evenly distributed across its surface.
Memory foam aides in giving users a productive nights sleep by relieving pressure and keeping the body in line. Naturally, the body needs to be in a straight line from head to spine, but during the night, sleeping on the side or even back and stomach positions, can force the head into an unnatural position. Memory foam keeps the body aligned, and supports the neck by allowing the foam to fill in the gap between shoulder and mattress when sleeping on the side. When you sleep on your back, it prevents the head from being pushed too far forward with your chin forced toward your chest, and when sleeping on your stomach it keeps your head from bending backwards, potentially pinching nerves and causing muscles to tense up.
