When memory foam was first invented in the 1970's, its intended use was to help astronauts reduce the effect of G-forces they were experiencing. It was not until the 1990's that memory foam hit the consumer market. The medical industry thought that memory foam could help reduce bed sores. Memory foam works by spreading the pressure of the body over a larger surface area, thereby relieving pressure on strategic parts of the body, like hips and shoulders. For those with hip ailments, both dogs and humans, it helps reduce pressure and pain in those areas.

 

 

Memory foam is also heat sensitive. It is also known as visco-elastic foam. As the foam gets warmer from the heat of the body, it molds itself to the contours of the body. At cooler temperatures, the foam is more viscous or firmer. At warmer temperatures, the foam is more elastic or softer. This accounts for the sinking feeling we get when lying on a memory foam mattress. If animals could talk, I am sure they would say they are experiencing the same feeling.

As dogs and people age, their joints become stiffer and sleep becomes more difficult because of the pressure being put on those joints. In the case of dogs, a memory foam dog bed will conform and comfort each of those joints allowing a peaceful nights rest for our canine companion. For dogs with aches and pains, young dogs and older ones, a memory foam bed is the best way to take care their 'orthopedic' needs.
