These days we often think of memory foam in terms of mattresses, mattress toppers, and pillows, all of which are sought for comfort. Are you aware that memory foam is also commonly used in health care settings such as hospitals and nursing homes because using memory foam furniture cushions and mattresses minimizes the occurrence of bedsores in immobile people? It is also a common material of choice in the manufacturing of wheelchair seat pads, and the interior padding in safety helmets. Chances are good that your favorite football line-backer has memory foam lining the inside of his helmet. This is because memory, or viscoelastic, foam is dense enough to pad and protect by absorbing the energy of an impact, but it also reacts to body heat to soften and mould for a comfortable fit. This attribute of retaining its supportive firmness while softening to relieve pressure points is exactly what makes it sought after for its positive orthopedic effects. That is, foam-filled furniture helps keep your body in alignment without creating pressure point discomfort.
If the problem is not 'stickiness' because of age, dirt or other factors, a string or piece of material from the futon cover might be caught in the zipper unit. Gently remove the caught fabric or thread that is jamming the zipper. The inner fabric is generally what gets caught, so a pair of tweezers might come in handy in order to get hold of the material or thread. As carefully as possible, pull the inner lining, thread or other material that is caught in the unit away from the zipper. Light tugging is acceptable so long as the zipper tab is not yanked. Forcing the zipper tab up or down will make the problem worse. Depending on how embedded the futon material or thread is in the zipper unit, teeth might get separated removing the fabric. Gently push the zipper teeth back into place and the zipper should work. At this point, check the length of the zipper and push the lining away from the zipper to prevent future snags. Re-zip and the problem should be fixed.
Memory foam is considered to be safe for consumer use in cushions, mattresses, pillows, and many other consumer items. However, there are a few health concerns that have been reported with products that contain temperature-responsive foam products. People with sensitive respiratory systems might experience slight respiratory irritation from the mild emissions that memory foam mattresses can put off. This is often related more to the federally mandated fire retardant treatments that all mattresses and bedding must undergo than the chemicals used to manufacture the memory foam mattresses.
