A memory foam pillow is a pillow made from a new material that is developed using a special type of construction, called 'open cell'. Before being used in pillows, this technology was successfully utilized by NASA who wanted to reduce the pressure placed on astronauts when taking off.

In your pillow this material is warmed by the natural heat from your head and neck and when it's warmed the material softens. This means that the pillow naturally creates a shape that moulds to the natural contours of your neck and head, therefore providing superior levels of support.

This type of pillow may help if you suffer from aches or pains (especially back ache), headaches, arthritis or have trouble sleeping. Many people who use memory foam would never go back to a standard pillow in the future.
