What Exactly Is Memory Foam?
Memory foam is a viscoelastic material that adjusts and conforms to the contours of the shape that is pressed against it. It has a much higher capacity to adjust to pressures and contours of the body than regular foam. Memory foam was originally developed for NASA to support and protect astronauts from the G-forces during launch and re-entry. The feel of memory foam is determined by density, firmness and the thickness of the top layer. You will benefit from memory foam if you are uncomfortable in a spring mattress, toss and turn at night, have back, shoulder and neck pain or need additional pressure relief to help you sleep well.
The density of the foam affects the memory characteristics, as well as the cost of the mattress. The ideal density and the industry standard is between 4 and 5.3 pounds. Foam denser than 5.3 pounds will cause the user to feel more “stuck” in the mattress. Amerisleep does not sell a foam mattress denser than 4.5 pounds, so you will never have to worry about feeling that way in any of their mattresses. Firmness fluctuates, depending on the temperature of the top layers of foam. Gel based foam starts off cool and then quickly gets hotter, causing you to sweat and toss and turn during the night. Plant based memory foam starts off cool and stays that way so your firmness will be more even throughout the night, keeping you more comfortable.
Thickness dictates the feel of the mattress and is based on the ratio of the firmness of the top layer and the supporting layers. The thicker the layer, the softer the mattress will feel. Based on customer ratings and reviews, the ideal top layer will have between 2 inches and 7 inches of foam. Amerisleep refers to their support layers as “Bio-Core” and their top layer as “Bio-Pur Comfort”.

It is possible to use your current box spring or foundation if it is no more than 8-10 years old, has a steady flat surface and is of solid construction without cracks, splinters or breaks. If you are in doubt of the quality of your box spring or foundation, throw it out. You do not want to put a new memory foam mattress on a questionable foundation. In addition to mattresses, there are also three styles of adjustable beds. The Ergo Invincible, the Designer Series and the Prodigy. Packages are available that team up mattresses with bed styles and save you money. Shipping is free for all mattress and bed purchases.
Amerisleep offers accessories to make your sleep experience even more comfortable. There are memory foam pillows, sheets, protectors and mattress toppers. You can also get a sofa bed memory foam mattress. In order to heat your mattress or keep it cooler, you can choose a chill pad or a cube motor.
In addition to all the products and environmentally friendly practices, every mattress and bed comes with a 10 year full replacement warranty and a 20 year warranty. The 20 year warranty covers the second ten years of ownership via a pro-rated process for replacement. Your purchase is under warranty for the next 20 years from the time of purchase. That is a great deal on a great mattress. Enjoy and sleep well.
