Memory foam mattresses ‘may help alleviate back pain’

Sufferers of back pain could find some assistance with their condition from memory foam mattresses, it has been claimed

Investing in a memory foam mattress could assist those who suffer from back pain, it has been suggested.

A piece on website highlighted the health advantages of such mattresses and emphasised the possibility of them assisting those with the condition.

Writer John Denny claimed memory foam can be “a back saver”, which was developed in the 1980s by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the US.

“It gives immobile or paralyzed sufferers a comfortable mattress, for it helps their bony areas and encourages the healthy circulation of blood flow,” he explained.

Mr Denny added that the material has a range of other household and medical uses, including crash helmets and footwear, as well as mattresses.

Memory foam provides sleepers with anatomical support by shaping to the contours of the body and then returning to its original shape to offer optimum comfort, which can be particularly helpful for sufferers of back pain.
