Bios Sleep System
A magazine ad from the 1950's shows a cut-away drawing of a foam
mattress conforming to the body contours of a sleeper. The brand? Firestone Foamex
. Most of us are too young to remember this ad, and yes, it predates memory foam
by two decades. Foamex
was a division of Firestone Rubber and Latex Products Company
specializing in various foam products. Their mattresses
were made with latex
foam (a.k.a. "foam rubber") under the trade name of Foamex
in the 1980's. Polyurethane foam
and memory foam
were added. In 2009 Foamex International
. The bedding products divisions of FXI
are Bios Sleep System
and Anatomic Global
. Today's Bios
mattresses are direct descendants of the Foamex
mattresses in magazine ads our parents or grandparents saw in the 1950's.
