If there’s one thing that people know about Tempur-Pedic®, it’s the company's connection with both NASA and Sweden. In the early 1970s, NASA developed a pressure-absorbing material to help cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. The material was temperature-sensitive and it evenly distributed body weight. NASA released this material to the public in the 1980s. Another set of scientists, at the soon-to-be-merged companies Fagerdala in Sweden and Dan-Foam in Denmark, continued development on NASA’s creation. After nearly a decade and millions of research dollars, these “Swedish scientists” perfected TEMPUR® material for use in mattresses. Over the years, Tempur-Pedic® has expanded their line of mattresses to include pillows, bed linens, cushions, and even a sleep mask. And now the brand is proud to introduce slippers to their highly successful product line. Setting the highest standards for lounge-inspired footwear, Tempur-Pedic® creates new and better comfort products that give you the plush comfort you want with the support you need. Tempur-Pedic® footwear offers slippers and casual shoes to fit every foot in a range of styles, each equipped with a comfy TEMPUR® insole for indoor and outdoor use.
