Q: Will TEMPUR® Material make me feel too hot?

A: Our mattresses are designed to respond to your body temperature, which activates their ability to conform to your body, offering support and reducing pressure points. With the improved support and reduced pressure points on your body, sleeping on our mattresses can help increase circulation, so you may find you need lighter bedding.

Q: How is the Micro-Tech™ Hybrid Collection different from traditional spring mattresses?

A: Fully sprung mattresses covered by quilted thickly padded ticking mean you are lying on row after row of coiled sprung metal. This may create pressure points that could cause discomfort. TEMPUR® material shapes to the contours of your body, adjusting and distributing your body weight evenly, reducing pressure and providing maximum support. Our Micro-Tech™ Hybrid Collection incorporates Pocket Springs in the base layer for sleepers who prefer a faster response, but want the benefits that TEMPUR® material offers too.

Q: What are the benefits from Motion Absorption?

A: When you lie down on a standard foam mattress you, load it with potential energy. This energy is released when you move, causing motion which could disturb your partner. But a TEMPUR® mattress absorbs your slightest movement before returning to its original shape. So you or your partner are less likely to be disturbed by each other’s movement while you sleep. Motion absorption is measured through rebound – the lower the better. Drop a weighted ball on a standard foam mattress and it can rebound up to 20%. TEMPUR® has a rebound less than 3%.

Q: How is NASA connected to TEMPUR® Material?

A: TEMPUR® Material was originally developed by NASA’s Ames Research Centre, to cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. TEMPUR® Material distributes weight and pressure evenly, so all you feel is weightless. Today, TEMPUR® Material lies at the core of all our mattresses and pillow, and is still the only mattress product recognised by NASA and certified by the Space Foundation.
