What is viscoelastic foam?
Viscoelastic foams are open-pored flexible polyurethane foams that fully develop their thermoactive properties when exposed to body heat. Originally developed by NASA for the U.S. space program, this high-tech material offers proven high pressure relief, both at low and high weight loads.
What are the outstanding properties of visco-foam?
Visco-elastic foams react to your individual body shape and temperature and thus adapt perfectly to your body. When body heat and weight act on the material, pressure is distributed, thus preventing pressure points on sensitive body parts. Visco-mattresses have proven to be excellent in pressure sore prophylaxis. The optimal adaptation of the foam to the body weight results in an optimal relief of pressure points. As a result, there is no need to constantly re-bed the patient.
How does it come to an increase in sleeping comfort?
The pressure relief on the particularly exposed parts of the body, such as the shoulder, hip and arm area, leads to a significant improvement in blood circulation. This leads to a calmer sleep pattern and reduces the need for constant changes in sleeping position.
For which pains can viscoelastic foam bring about a significant improvement?
Mattresses and pillows made of this material reduce neck, joint and back pain caused by incorrect sleeping posture. The use of this material relieves the pressure on the sensitive and inflamed areas of the body, thus significantly accelerating the healing process.
How important is volume weight?
The volume weight is very important. Pay attention to the density when buying a Visco-Mattress. The higher the density, the better the quality. Good mattresses start at 45 kg/m³. Our mattresses have a volume weight of 50 kg/m³, which corresponds to a very good foam quality.
