What It Does
The Tempurpedic bed is advertised as one of the best beds you can buy. But why? The Tempurpedic bed, if used correctly, is supposed to actually reduce pain while you sleep and also form to your body. It's known to be a sturdy mattress that is for comfort and also to help your muscles relax during the sleep stages. Using technology developed by NASA, the bed focuses on pressure points in the body to create a better sleep situation. Even if you're sleeping in a position that would likely cause soreness in the morning, the way the mattress conforms to your body supports the position, making sure you do not have any sleep disturbances or next-day woes.
How It's Made
The materials in Tempurpedic beds are patented and are very different from those in regular beds. Instead of the cushions used in everyday mattresses, the company uses an allergy-resistant material that prevents dust mites and other allergens from staying. However, the exact materials used are a secret, much like a secret sauce, but it's widely known the material resembles Styrofoam more than cushion. The company also produces pillows to complete the sleep process.
The beds also come in different types, which are mostly designed based on their different headboard styles and material on the exterior of the mattress. Some do, however, specialize in specific problem areas for sleepers, such as air circulation. While the company tries to stay ahead of the contemporary curve, a bed made by this company is less likely to have the types of headboards you desire. The bed in its naked state is also thicker than typical mattresses.
Purchasing a Tempurpedic bed can be done on the website, which is listed in Resources. There are also various retailers, both at large chains and small independent shops, which sell the products. For newer versions and the highest quality, ordering directly from the company might be suggested.
