Do you ever get that floating feeling, just as you are drifting off to sleep? When it feels as though your body is weightless and you are curled up in the clouds?


That feeling of weightlessness is something that astronauts experience all the time in space. NASA actually developed the zero-gravity position to maximise their comfort and protect their spines as they flew into space. The position involves laying on your back with your legs, spine, and head slightly more elevated than your stomach and heart.


The zero-gravity sleeping position reduces stress and promotes circulation while the whole body is supported. This combination of pressure relief and weightlessness makes for a supremely comfortable bed surface. In fact, NASA also developed the science behind the first memory foam mattress, so they clearly know a thing or two about sleep surfaces!


Research indicates that around 80% of us experience back and neck pains that can easily be alleviated with simple changes to our posture and sleep habits. Memory foam can help to achieve that by supporting the body and gently absorbing the weight, providing a feeling of weightlessness.


By removing painful pressure from the body, you are able to achieve higher quality, more restful sleep. Memory foam helps to distribute the weight of the body, like the zero-gravity position, ensuring that the body is getting the support it needs and preventing aches, pains, and sore joints. This support means that circulation is improved which can also reduce inflammation and swelling. 


When high-quality memory foam is paired with state-of-the-art pocket springs, it is a recipe for the best night’s sleep of your life. Check out our range of award-winning hybrid and orthopaedic mattresses and get the sleep that you deserve.
