Real NASA Link

Many manufacturers claim visco foam was first used by the NASA Space Program to boost sales for their foam pillow.

NASA never did use that basic material in the 1960s. NASA pillows or space pillows simply do not exist as such.

The truth is the Swedish Tempurpedic company did eventually come up with a reliable formula now used in the best-selling Tempurpedic sleep system.

While Tempur-Pedic mattress pads are commonly known as Swedish pads, not all such products made in Sweden are made of the so-called space foam.

Authenticity Test

How can you check if your purchase as good as a genuine Tempur bed? You can try the wine glass test, the egg test, or the fridge test.

Top Memory Foam Complaint
