Material Memory Foam
Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals increasing its viscosity and density. It is often referred to as “viscoelastic” polyurethane foam, or low-resilience polyurethane foam (see LRPu). Higher-density memory foam softens in reaction to body heat, allowing it to mold to a warm body in a few minutes. Faster speed of recovery of a foam to its original shape after a weight is removed is sometimes claimed as an advantage by memory-foam producers.
This foam will adapt the face in comfort. The material will give a soft surrounding so the patient will not have any problems with the sharp edges of the treatment couch. The therapist will have a solid base for treatments and the patient can breath normal in a facedown position.
