Visco elastic Foam (VEF), or memory foam, has an open cell structure that reacts to body heat and weight moulding to your body and helping to relieve pressure points and therefor reducing the risk of pressure sores.

Developed by NASA in the 1960s to absorb shock and offer enhanced seat protection to astronauts during space missions. The pressure relieving qualities of VEF is a significant factor in pressure reduction in the medical industry.

The fluid like qualities of VEF maintains a greater proportion of the body in contact with the mattress. As the weight of the patient is more evenly spread, the pressure on bony prominences (i.e. back of head, heels, trocanters, ischial tuberosity) is substantially reduced.


MFOAM mattresses use a process of multi density foam construction – a result of extensive pressure mapping research and development. Lighter, more pliable foams are effective at the heels. A more resilient VEF is used for the buttock area to prevent “bottoming” out which can dangerously increase the risk of pressure sores.
