A memory foam is a highly recommended mattress material, especially for people with special needs. Patients who are forced to lie immobile on bed for long periods of time develop painful pressure sores or gangrene. Pressure on certain body regions such as the back and legs impair blood flow and result to sores. A memory foam mattress distributes the pressure evenly, ensuring healthy blood flow all over the body.
The Uratex Senso Memory Ultima is one of the best memory foam mattresses in the market. It is equipped with high-quality memory foam infused with a gel technology that lowers body temperature to help you fall asleep easier.

The memory foam is a mattress innovation that sprung from a NASA project in the 1970s to improve seat cushioning and crash protection for airline pilots and passengers. Over the years, NASA and various manufacturers introduced new materials and processes to make memory foam available to the public. Today, this wonder foam is primarily made of viscoelastic polyurethane that combines the properties of viscous and elastic materials. Viscous materials resist strain when stress is applied while elastic materials strain when stress is applied and returns to their original state when stress is removed. A memory foam molds to the body, evenly distributing body weight, and returns to its original form once the stress (or pressure) is removed.
The introduction of memory foam to the general public in the 1980s was a relief to people with disabilities. It was incorporated in wheelchair seats, hospital bed cushions, and cervical pillows. Memory foam is used in a number of bedroom essentials such as mattresses, toppers, and pillows. Today, you can take advantage of this foam innovation whether or not you’re suffering from an orthopedic condition.
The Uratex Senso Memory Foam Original Mattress cradles the body while promoting good blood circulation and natural body alignment. You can complement this with a Senso Memory Cervical Pillow that conforms to the shape of your head. It offers relief to people engaged in stressful day jobs. The cervical pillow prevents pressure points from your shoulder to your head.
When the memory foam was in its development stages in the 1970s, one of the issues that manufacturers had to address is its temperature reactivity. The foam strains when stress is applied, and this stress is typically any material that produces heat. To solve the heat problem of the earlier memory foams, manufacturers used open-cell structure to promote breathability. The later products included poured or infused gel on the pad layer or below the foam. This reduced trapped body heat and made the mattress feel softer.
What makes Uratex Senso Memory Ultima stand out from the rest? It features Hydragel® technology in which gel beads are infused into the memory foam. These beads absorb
heat, provide optimal airflow, and lower body temperature by up to 2ºC compared to traditional memory foams. You don’t have to worry about sleeping on an uncomfortably warm mattress.
Since manufacturers found ways to make memory foam cost-efficient, products made of this material began flooding the market. However, you should know that not all memory foam mattresses are created equal. There had been complaints of uncomfortable heat from high-density and closed-cell memory foams. Similar issues were reported from those using latex-covered memory foam mattresses. Other mattresses reportedly exhibit inflexibility in cooler environments.
The Senso Memory Extra Mattress has a knitted Tencel cover that regulates body temperature, making sure you sleep comfortably even in the middle of a warm evening. This premier product features Sanitized® treatment that protect against growth of bacteria, odor, mildew, and dust mites. If these are not enough to guarantee your mattresses to last long, Uratex offers a 15-year warranty for the Uratex Senso Memory Ultima and 10-year warranty for the Senso Memory Extra Mattress.
Business leader and sleep advocate Arianna Huffington laments the society’s neglect, if not indifference, to quality sleep. “The combination of a deeply misguided definition of what it means to be successful in today’s world—that it can come only through burnout and stress—along with the distractions and temptations of a 24/7 wired world, has imperiled our sleep as never before,” she wrote in her bestselling book, The Sleep Revolution. Consequently, few people recognize the importance of choosing premier mattresses and other sleeping essentials to ensure a satisfying sleep each night. Make a cool change, or as Arianna Huffington puts it, take control of your life by renewing your relationship with sleep. Start by getting yourself the best foam mattress in the Philippines.
