Orthopedic foam, or flexible foam, is a material that was created by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States in the 1970s. Initially used to pad air ship arrivals, NASA discharged the innovation to general society space in the 1980s. Since that time, the innovation has been adjusted for utilization in the sleeping cushion industry, as additions in shoes and as a material for pet beds.
Orthopedic foam is made of open-cell polyurethane-silicon plastic. This type of plastic exceeds expectations at dispersing weight and weight equitably, which makes it a great safeguard. For quite a long time, the material was utilized solely by NASA in light of the fact that its capacity to assimilate weight secured flying machine amid high-affect arrivals. The froth can come back to its unique shape even in the wake of being compacted down to 10% of its typical size. In its initial days, flexible foam did not hold up well after numerous uses, but rather advancements in the innovation have extraordinarily expanded its life span.
