The Tempur-pedic mattress was first put on the market in 1991 by a Swedish technical foam firm. Tempurpedic foam forms to the shape of your body, putting less stress and impact on your back, knees, and hips.

If you are suffering from back problems, the issue might be with your mattress. According to the National Sleep Foundation, memory foam mattresses may help aid those with back pain in obtaining a better night’s sleep. Tempurpedic mattresses come in all shapes, sizes and forms, including beds and mattresses, comfortable sleeper sofas, and leather living room furniture sets.

Since tempurpedic mattresses are typically on the pricier end, it helps to know a bit more about them before purchasing those comfortable sleeper sofas you saw on TV. Read on for all you need to know about tempurpedic mattresses.

Tempurpedic Pros – Tempurpedic mattresses are most well known for a “good nights sleep”. Kathy R. Gromer, MD, sleep specialist with the Minnesota Sleep Institute in Minneapolis, agrees that memory foam may improve sleep. “It can, if it relieves painful pressure points,” she says. However,since sleep tests are relatively subjective, it is difficult to make a conclusive point regarding improved sleep habits.

When you lie on the memory foam, the heat from your body softens it in appropriate points, so this helps to support your body along the curves and natural lines of the body. Memory foam manufacturers claim this helps relieve pain and thereby promotes more restful sleep.

Tempurpedic Cons

  • Customers report an odd chemical smell being released from the comfortable sleeper sofas and mattresses. This is common, and appeased by allowing at least 24 hours after purchase before putting sheets on it. The smell disappates quickly if directions are properly adhered to.
  • Heat Retention – The most common customer complaint is of heat retention. Between 10 and 14% of customers complain that their comfortable sleeper sofas retain an uncomfortable amount of body heat.
  • Price – A general rule of thumb is: the more memory foam, the more money. The top-of-the-line mattresses sells for around $7500, while the more reasonably priced line comes in at around $2400.
