Memory foam was originally developed in 1966 under contract for NASA to provide relief for astronauts undergoing the extreme physical stress of “G-Forces.” The material that was invented, visco-elastic polyurethane foam – responds to your body’s heat and molds around you, relieving pressure points and improving circulation.
This revolutionary high-density memory foam has been improved many times over the years since its invention. Today’s memory foam provides exceptional therapeutic cushioning and support, significantly reduces pressure points, improves circulation, and optimizes sleep temperature.
Because only memory foam mattresses have all of these unique qualities, they provide a better night’s sleep than conventional inner-spring mattresses. Not ready to let go of your conventional inner-spring mattress? A memory foam topper fits right on top of your current mattress and provides pressure point relief.
A memory foam sleeping surface can actually improve your sleep by providing luxurious comfort and support while dramatically reducing the pressure points that occur during sleep on a conventional inner spring mattress. Reduced pressure points result in better circulation and fewer sleep interruptions versus a conventional sleep surface.

Sleep Innovations manufactures 100% of its memory foam in the United States. Domestic production allows us to ensure the highest quality goes into every product, and that every item meets the highest safety standards in the U.S.A. It is important to note that many memory foam products are imported, and that they often do not all meet the safe, strict quality and safety guidelines met by all Sleep Innovations products.
Density is the weight of the memory foam measured in cubic feet. In the past density was important in assessing the quality of memory foam. Today, density does not completely determine comfort. Technological breakthroughs have allowed Sleep Innovations and other leading manufacturers of memory foam to produce “open cell” products. These are the best performing products on the market – as the open cell structure, not the density, determines quality and comfort.
Memory foam is temperature-sensitive, so environmental temperatures may affect how it feels. For mattresses and mattress toppers, in particular, very warm and humid weather may make them feel soft, while very cold weather may make them somewhat firmer. If you feel a memory foam mattress or mattress topper is too firm, try removing the conventional mattress pad to increase the responsiveness of memory foam material to your body temperature. If you feel the memory foam mattress or mattress topper is too soft, try adding a conventional mattress pad to make the mattress seem firmer. You may also try keeping the room slightly cooler.
Memory foam mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows have the same properties, so they are all affected by temperature the same way. Your body heat will affect these products quickly and result in a perfect fit in a very short time regardless of the environmental heat or cold. Please note that if, for some reason, your memory foam product has been subjected to temperatures lower than 40 degrees Fahrenheit, it is important that you let it conform naturally to its new indoor environment prior to use.
Sleep Innovations’ memory foam is made with the latest manufacturing technology, so all of our memory foam products have “open cells.” Open cells are designed to encourage air flow. Open cells dissipate the heat released by your body and head during sleep. Unlike the memory foam products of years ago (which had tighter, closed cells that did retain heat), today’s Sleep Innovations products are temperature neutral.
We have had numerous technological breakthroughs over the past few years. As a result, you will find Sleep Innovations’ memory foam has been improved (vs. earlier Sleep Innovations’ products and vs. competitors’ products) in the following ways:
All Sleep Innovations‘ memory foam meets the standard of California Bureau of Home Furnishing Technical Bulletin (TB) 117.
All of Sleep Innovations' polyurethane foam products are Made in the US and free of known toxins. Our memory foam contains no formaldehyde, no PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ether), and no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
PBDE stands for Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether, which was used as a flame-retardant chemical in a variety of household items. The accumulation of PBDEs in the environment has been linked to health problems including liver toxicity, thyroid toxicity, and neurodevelopment issues.
Only if noted on the packaging. While many of our products do not contain latex, some of our products contain a Latex Foam. All Latex Foam products have Latex written on the packaging and are made with a hypo-allergenic Latex Foam mixture.
Memory foam products are naturally resistant to dust mites and are hypoallergenic.
In addition, Sleep Innovations’ memory foams products are treated with an anti-microbial finish to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
Dictionary of Terms:
Hypo-allergenic: Designed to reduce or minimize the possibility of an allergic response; containing few or no potentially irritating substances
Anti-microbial: Capable of destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms
Micro-organisms: Any living organism that is too small for a human with an unaided eye, e.g., bacteria, fungus, dust mites, etc.
While, by definition, our memory foam products are designed to minimize the possibility of an allergic reaction, if you have a pre-existing sensitivity to foam and foam products you may experience a reaction. While this condition is rare we do recommend that anyone with this condition carefully consider your purchase.
Memory foam may have a slight odor that remains from the manufacturing process. This odor, often referred to as a “fresh foam smell” is normal and completely harmless, and will dissipate within a few days. Both memory foam and conventional foam are used in products you come in contact with every day in upholstered furniture, vehicles, office furniture, etc. The “new car smell” is attributed to the foam used in the seats. All memory foam materials have this smell when first opened – especially if they have been in an air-tight plastic container from the time they were manufactured.
Memory foam is not machine-washable or machine-dryable. It should be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and mild, clear soap when necessary. Let air dry completely before covering with pillow or bed linens/sheets. Be sure to follow manufacturers care instructions since you may void your warranty if not followed.
All memory foam oxidizes, and turns yellow as it ages. (It’s like a penny that becomes darker over time.) This is a completely natural process that memory foam goes through and in no way impairs the comfort or durability of the memory foam.
It is important to note that not all memory foam products on the market are open cell, so be sure to buy open-cell memory foam that is American-made.
Mattress toppers are a fantastic, economical addition to your bedroom. Mattress toppers improve the comfort of your inner spring mattress, add years to the life of your mattress and is far less expensive than replacing your mattress. They come in varying thicknesses – so be sure to get the perfect complement for your bed!
Mattress Toppers: Mattress toppers are very tightly packed for shipping purposes. You will want to allow 48 – 72 hours for the product to return to its original size and shape prior to use. (To maximize memory foam expansion, remove this product from its packaging within 72 hours of receipt, and follow instructions provided carefully.)
Mattresses: Like mattress toppers (noted above), mattresses should be opened from their packaging as soon as possible after (i.e., within 72 hours of) receipt, and then allowed 48-72 hours to resume their size and shape. Be sure to follow instructions carefully.
When adding depth to any mattress it may (or may not) require changes to your linens. Many of the newer bed linens include a deep (up to 27”) fitted bottom sheet. These are ideal for today’s deep mattresses and the added depth of mattress toppers. Sheets that fit beds of all sizes can be found in most stores that carry bed linens.
No. You should be able to move freely and comfortably on your memory foam product.
Some people are completely comfortable on their new memory foam sleeping surface from the very first moment. People who have been sleeping on a hard surface may need some time to adjust to the remarkable amount of support and unique pressure-relieving feel of this product (some call it a “floating” or “light” feeling). For those who find it takes time to adjust, it can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to fully feel the bliss!
Memory foam mattresses are typically comprised of layers – some of which are “base foam” and some of which are “memory foam.” The firmness and stability of the mattress is provided primarily by the base layer. The cushioning is provided more by the “memory foam” layer, so each mattress carries a unique level of firmness and comfort that depends upon the blend of these layers of foam.
Memory foam mattresses can be used on a traditional box spring, a well ventilated platform bed, or slatted frame (no more than 6” apart). They are not made for adjustable beds, sofa beds, Murphy beds or any other foundation that will bend the product. Memory foam mattresses are not designed to be used directly on the floor.
Mattress Toppers: Can be carefully folded in fourths or rolled, covered with a fabric or plastic material to keep the foam clean and stored on a flat dry surface in a dry area. Do not store with any substance piled on top of the foam topper.
Mattresses: Should be covered with a fabric or plastic material to keep the foam clean and stored standing up on end or lying flat in a dry area. Do not fold and do not put anything on top of the mattress while it is in storage.
The egg crate side is supposed to be facing up; however if you are more comfortable with it facing down, you may use it like that as well. There isn't a specific way for using the topper.
You can purchase our mattresses in-store or on-line.
In-Store: Each mattress is compressed into a box that fits inside most cars. The weight varies by size.
On-Line: We will ship the mattress to your home via UPS in boxes that are 23”x23”x40”. Again, weight varies by size.
“White Glove Service”: Unfortunately, “white glove” service is not available.
