Serious Cushion for Wheelchair, Pain and Pressure Sore risk
Some medical or physical conditions may confine us to one place, or wheelchairs, either temporarily or permanently. Serious medical conditions, or sitting for long periods, command serious comfort to ease pain from confinement, surgery, permanent injury and even paralysis.
The Protector (and "The Adjustable Protector" - see this site) are non-liquid gel seat cushions that are truly effective for sitting long periods and particularly for protection against pressure sore risk.
The Protector, and The Adjustable Protector, feature micro-cell ContourFit™ technology for added comfort. Measuring 2.25", of patented EquaGel™these cushions are constructed in an ingenious design that incorporates two virtual layers in one, which provides for the perfect combination of a high level comfort layer with a durable support layer with no risk of separation. These cushions are not only comfortable but need no adjustment and are highly durable, lasting many years.
Highly recommended for people who are at risk of pressure ulcers.
For many people confined to wheelchairs, uncomfortable sitting can be a source of pain, discomfort, anxiety and frustration. A more serious condition can be pressure sores, which are extremely painful and can develop serious consequences. The Protector, and The Adjustable Protector, are two products that redefine the standards of an effective medical grade seat or chair cushion.
The Protector offers an ergonomically designed pelvic indent which adds extra comfort and stability in your wheeled device, while still providing a full 1 ¾ inches of gel in the comfort zone. Being portable these wheelchair cushions can go where you go.
The Adjustable Protector has two additional components. There are two separate pelvic contour inserts that can be used to individually tailor just the right amount of therapeutic gel underneath producing an individualized feel. There are many combinations to make it perfect for you.
The Protector, and The Adjustable Protector, employs scientifically designed "column buckling" engineering in our wheelchair cushions, which almost eliminates pressure points. See the video on this site which explains the principle how it works. You can also read by clicking here.
Being resistant to fluids, breathable and being covered by flame retardant materials makes this a versatile, very useful cushion for aged folks, individuals with disabilities or persons recovering from surgery or other sitting related conditions.
These wheelchair cushions are specifically designed for persons at medium to high risk of pressure sores.
Traditional foam or air cushions will eventually lose their shape and effectiveness. These semi-solid gel seat cushions are extremely long-lasting and durable. They never need adjustment and will last for many years.
