“Contour-Foam™ Silver is Sharper Image's exclusive space-age viscoelastic foam material that responds to your body's shape, weight and warmth to form a custom cradle of uniform support — free of pressure points. In quality and comfort, it is equal of nationally advertised brands costing much more — plus it's infused with silver for its antibacterial benefits! Silver — yes, the actual metal found in silverware — is naturally anti-mite, anti-mold, anti-microbe, and it fights odors too. In particle form, silver is a safe, medically proven antibacterial agent with ions that interfere with the respiratory metabolism of microbes. Ultra-fine silver particles are infused throughout Sharper Image's exclusive space-age Contour-Foam Silver products. Created by advanced nanotechnology ("nano" indicating one billionth), these silver nanoparticles average only about 25nm (nanometers) in diameter — one 200 thousandth of a human hair — invisible to the eye but adding immeasurably to you well-being by making this pressure-free, comforting part of your home environment cleaner, fresher and healthier. “
