It all started at NASA in the 1970s when scientists developed temperature sensitive material to absorb the pressure experienced by astronauts during lift-off. Inspired by this technology, we’ve spent decades perfecting TEMPUR Material, so it actively adapts to the weight, warmth and movement of every individual.
We’re proud TEMPUR Material stands alone as the only material certified by NASA and the Space Foundation. Like all good scientists, our journey of discovery is never complete. We’re always innovating and developing new technologies in search of a better night’s sleep.
What makes TEMPUR® so special?
It’s not one thing. It could be our unique pressure-relieving TEMPUR® Material, created from NASA technology. Or our 30 years of expertise in sleep and innovation. Maybe it’s our early achievements in healthcare. Perhaps that we are number one in customer satisfaction in multiple countries around the world.
Then again, it could simply be the magic of that TEMPUR®feeling when you lie down. Helping you sleep better, longer, deeper. Truth is, it’s all of this and it has made us the world’s largest bedding company – and there is so much more…
Nothing else is like TEMPUR® Material. Our scientists have continued to refine and perfect TEMPUR® Material for sleep for over 30 years. Our formula has always remained secret – fewer than 10 people in the world know how to make it, and they all work for us. Since we created the first viscoelastic mattress and pillow in 1991, TEMPUR® Material has been at the heart of all our products. Being viscoelastic means TEMPUR Material is both fluid and spring-like – achieved by billions of ultra-sensitive open cells existing between a solid and a liquid state. That’s the secret.
The moment you lie down feels like pure magic as the cells instantly respond to your body’s shape, weight and warmth, precisely adapting and aligning to every inch of you. Its proven pressure relief gives your body total comfort and support, helping you to drift off faster and helps to reduce your tossing and turning. It absorbs motion from your partner so you are less likely to disturb one another. How TEMPUR® Material works is complex, but what it does is simple: help you sleep better, longer, deeper.
