Initially developed at NASA’s Ames Research Center in the early 1970’s, the original material was designed to relieve the pressure experienced by astronauts during liftoff. Swedish Scientists spent a decade and millions of dollars in research before perfecting a new advanced formula, TEMPUR-PEDIC®. Hospitals were among the first to recognize the remarkable comfort and support of the TEMPUR-PEDIC system.
Today, TEMPUR-PEDIC is found in million of bedrooms around the world.
