the only brand of mattresses and pillows recognized by NASA

In the early 1970s, NASA developed a special pressure-absorbing material to protect astronauts during takeoff. When TEMPUR® decided to use this unique thermosensitive material in mattresses, the legend began!

The unique properties of the material developed by NASA allowed it to easily adapt to any body shape, evenly distribute body weight and regulate body temperature. So many qualities necessary to accompany astronauts on their space journey. Yet these properties also made the material perfect for another, very different purpose: mattresses! Some would be surprised to learn that they are sleeping on a NASA mattress, but after experiencing its unique properties, it would naturally make sense.
