Memory foam mattress toppers moulds to body weight and then will return to its original shape once the person has removed their weight. It is made from a substance called viscoelastic, which is what allows it to go back to its original shape, even when it has been moulded differently previously.

Memory foam was very first invented in the 1960’s for NASA aeroplanes. It is now, however, used for a variety of different purposes. The most common are for furniture, such as matresses, mattress toppers, sofas and pillows.
Although, they are still being used for aeroplane seats to this day. Memory foam is also commonly employed in shoes and protective helmets to increase comfort. It is also used for medicinal purposes in some cases; memory foam pads are used for patients that have just undergone surgery or for patients who have a severe wound.
