This foam pressure care cushion is suited to people at low to medium risk of pressure injury that is, damage to the skin and underlying tissue as a result of prolonged sitting without moving.
This combination foam and gel cushion is made from a gel bladder encased inside a resilient foam cushion. This design helps the cushion to evenly disperse the weight of a seated person over a larger area, which minimizes pressure points on the buttocks or thighs. The water based gel not only helps reduce direct pressure on the skin that might lead to pressure injury, but also provides a cooling effect to reduce heat an perspiration build up. The high density foam provides stability plus great comfort for prolonged sitting.
The outer cover is low shear to prevent damage to skin as a result of friction the damage that can be caused to delicate skin when it is dragged across another surface. It also has a non-slip base to help stop the cushion from sliding off the chair. Two positioning handles at either side of the cushion make it easy for the user to reposition the cushion.
The maximum user weight is 150 kilograms.
