Did you know that Memory foam was initially developed under a NASA contract in the 1970s that set out to improve seat cushioning and crash protection for airline pilots and passengers? Since then, memory foam has been used for a variety of different things such as mattress toppers, bed pillows, cushions and even shoe insole.
Memory foam is completely heat sensitive, which means the material reacts to your natural body heat. This allows the pillow to naturally cradle the neck & shoulders. This helps to ensure that no one part of your neck has direct pressure, which can cause pain. As the memory foam cradles the neck, it evenly spreads pressure and helps you keep your neck and spine in a comfortable position.
However, if you are suffering for any neck and back pain, we would advise that you consult your doctor before making any changes.
The memory foam gently conforms to the shape of your body and its natural hollows in your neck and shoulders, helping to send you off into a deep sleep.
If you are interested in purchasing a memory foam pillow, you have probably seen that the majority of trusted brands give more than a 3-year guarantee. This is because memory foam is a very durable material which will only start to ‘dip’ after several months of use, whereas a ‘normal pillow’ can start to deteriorate in their first week of use.
A high-density memory foam pillow will have better compression ratings over the life of the product. A lower-density one, on the other hand, will have a slightly shorter life due to the compression that takes place after repeated use. Our Panda Memory Foam Bamboo Pillow is made up of three separate layers, giving the product a much longer lifespan. That’s why at Panda we offer a 10 year guarantee with our Panda Memory Foam Bamboo Pillows and award winning memory foam mattress toppers.
Typically, memory foam pillows are known to overheat during the night, causing a disturbed night’s sleep. That’s why we designed meticulously placed air-pockets in all three layers of our memory foam pillows. This allows the pillow to naturally breathe, ensuring that you do not overheat during the night.
