Many Americans are plagued with back problems. In fact at some point in their lives about 80% of adults will suffer from lower back pain. That is a pretty frightening statistic. There are many practical things that can be done to prevent back pain like practicing good ergonomic principles and skills – knowing how to lift and to move your body correctly to avoid strain and injury, and nutrition fits into the mix as well, but one cannot overlook the value of good quality sleep.
For quite some time chiropractors have been recommending to their clients excellent supportive mattresses to help their spinal adjustments to stay in longer and have a fuller effect. Chiropractors, like many natural physicians, do much in the way of educating their clientele to avoid further stress and injury and get them on the road to recovery, empowering them to take charge of their health and not rely solely upon him or her to be the end-all solution to every malady.
One of the best mattresses out there today is the Tempflow mattress.
The Tempflow Mattress allows the cooler air to flow in two directions even when you are sleeping in the same position throughout the night. Cooler air will enter through the many small holes that go down through the surface of the memory foam and out through the convoluted channels on the firmer base foam. It also works in reverse, as air can enter through the sides and up through the surface holes.
This unique system also allows a heat transfer as the warmer air radiates off the body and ventilates down through the holes and out the sides of the mattress. That is why we always keep a breathable fabric where the channels exit on the sides of the mattress. In addition, a greater volume of airflow transfer will occur with even the slightest movements that occur throughout the sleeping process.
While some mattress companies offer airflow through the middle layer of the mattress, they fall short of allowing the mattress user to receive any airflow benefit, since it is well known that good quality memory foam does not breathe well due to its heavier weight and compact cell structure (the very reason that memory foam feels so dense when you lay on it). That is why this patented airflow circulation technology will really keep your body temperature constant throughout the night.
The Tempflow mattresses use special Biogreen® proprietary, pressure sensitive, viscoelastic memory foam material that is free of dangerous chemicals like PBDE, TDI, Boric Acid and Bromine. Our 3rd generation Biogreen is an environmentally friendly memory foam that is
approximately 13 times below Oeko-Tex®*, Certipur-US®* and GreenGuard’s* allowable total V.O.C.s required to achieve certification! For much more details on our Biogreen memory foam test results, as well more information about the rest of our environmentally friendly lower foam layers and other materials use to produce each Tempflow mattress. With so much concern about the release of chemicals in our atmosphere, allergens and toxins absorbed by our bodies, you can feel good knowing that our Biogreen® memory foam offers a truly hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly, and non-toxic experience.
Visco-elastic foam is the only substance which can make a total imprint of your body, but then slowly come back to shape after your body weight is lifted. This slow return rate is what allows a comfortable, yet supportive contouring of all the bumps and curves of the body that eliminates the rebound pressure that hard springs and rubberized foam has when you compress it with your body.
Visco-elastic memory foam can commonly be seen in 3lb, 4lb., 5lb densities. While 3lb. memory foam or below is often softer, the lower viscosity will make it less durable. 5lb. memory foam is usually more firm until it has warmed up to the body. This is because the extra viscosity will make the memory foam more dense in feel and more subjective to environmental temperatures.
