Memory foam, originally developed by NASA, is world renowned for its ability to provide an excellent amount of support and comfort, not to mention hygiene. Memory foam has a somewhat spongy consistency, which will contour to the shape of your body for ultimate comfort.
Cool gel memory foam has been infused with millions of micro cool gel beads to help prevent the foam for getting too hot. The cool gel essentially keeps the memory foam at a lower temperature for a much longer time than standard memory foam. As well as optimising comfort and sleep quality, this also improves the hygienic and hypoallergenic qualities of the mattress topper.

The best mattress topper for back pain depends on whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach. For those who sleep on their back or stomach, you need something firm enough to support your lower back while still being soft enough to comfortably contour to the rest of your body.
For side sleepers suffering from back pain, you need something with a little more cushioning for the shoulders and hips. But not something so soft that there is not enough support for your lumbar and spine. We would recommend side sleepers suffering from back pain the cool gel memory foam topper for a comfortable nights sleep.
