TEMPUR® vs Memory Foam

It's fact: TEMPUR material is not the same as generic memory foam

TEMPUR material is only made at TEMPUR production facilities where we research, design and manufacture it to our own proprietary formula. You will therefore only enjoy the true benefits of TEMPUR in TEMPUR products.

Before scientists developed the unique TEMPUR material, nothing like it existed on the bedding market. The pressure absorbing material was originally created by NASA to cushion and support astronauts during lift off and it was this material that TEMPUR scientists later perfected for use in sleep products.

TEMPUR has been recognised by NASA for its application of space technology to improve life quality, and is the only mattress and pillow company licensed by the US Space Foundation to use the Certified Technology Seal.

There are many memory foam products on the market, but only one TEMPUR. TEMPUR products conform to the shape of the user, offering superior comfort and support. The unique benefits of TEMPUR products stem from the equally unique composition of TEMPUR material.

All TEMPUR products are tested to ensure that they measure up to the highest standards. These standards are backed by comprehensive guarantees.

It was innovation that first brought the superior benefits of TEMPUR to the market and it is innovation that continues to bring a better and broader range of products to our customers.

TEMPUR products are recognised and purchased by hospitals, nursing homes and sleep centres worldwide for the pressure relieving comfort and superior support they provide.

Once you’ve slept on a TEMPUR mattress and pillow, you’ll realise there is no comparison and this is why TEMPUR® is ranked number 1 on consumer satisfaction in the UK.* For more information click here.
