Tempur-Pedic was originally founded in
1992 after nearly a decade of research and development of a product
formulation originally designed for use by NASA.
In the early 1970's, NASA engineers developed
a viscoelastic memory foam to relieve astronauts of the incredible
G-forces experienced during lift-off. Tempur-Pedic's Swedish
partners began experiments to perfect the NASA formula for consumer
use and after nearly a decade and millions of dollars of research;
the company introduced an improved version the proprietary
TEMPUR pressure-relieving material.
In 1998 Tempur-Pedic was awarded the "Certified
Technology Seal" from NASA. This seal verifies that the
underlying product technology was derived from the United States'
efforts and experiments in space.
