The post is titled “Top Memory Foam Mattress Technologies and Brands Compared.” It begins by breaking down each type and considering the pros and cons in regard to heat, odor and chemicals, comfort, and ease of movement.
Traditional memory foam is presented as comfortable, though often reported as hot and chemical-laden. Gel-infused memory foam may have less odors, through leading brands still emit off-gassing. The blog also questions the gel-infused type’s claims to sleeping cooler, citing data from the NAB and Cargill. Plant-based memory foam receives positive attention for its use of naturally-derived materials, cooler sleep, and quicker recovery time.
Accompanying the post is a chart comparing Tempurpedic to Amerisleep and Serta iComfort. Performance in key factors like heat, odor, response time, and price receive a grade between A and F, with A being best. Traditional memory foam tends to score lowest overall, while gel-based takes the middle spot and plant-based memory foam from Amerisleep takes the top rating.
