The viscoelastic foam is a synthetic material that adapts ergonomically to the body, removing every pressure point. They react to corporal temperature and maintain the natural position of our back, giving the necessary support to the spine, reducing and relieving pressure points.

– There are two kinds of visco elastic memory foam mattresses: mould and foam. The first one is more expensive and comfortable.
– The open cellular structure guarantees ventilation by creating a microclimate that guarantees a good ventilation that avoids heat accumulation.
