Systam Duogel Pressure Relief Foam and Gel Cushion
For many patients with low levels of mobility, the use of a pressure relief cushion is necessary to prevent the development of pressure ulcers. The Systam Duogel Pressure Relief Foam and Gel Cushion is an intelligently designed cushion constructed from two types of viscoelastic gel with a foam base to create an efficient multi-bearing pressure relieving surface. This weight-distributing design makes the cushion suitable for those at a low to medium risk of pressure sore development.

- Impermeable design makes this cushion suitable for incontinent users
- Highly breathable cover with built-in handle for easy transportation
- Dimensions: 420 x 420mm
- Max user weight: 140kg
Gel and Foam Combination
This cushion features an anatomically moulded base of high resiliency foam combined with a two-part layer of viscoelastic gel, providing an extremely comfortable pressure relief experience. The foam boosts the comfort that the gel can provide, reinforcing stability and maintaining even pressure distribution. These pressure relieving qualities work together to make this cushion suitable for patients at low to medium risk of pressure sore development.
The Systam Duogel Pressure Relief Foam and Gel Cushion is 100% impermeable and completely adapted to incontinent patients. Additionally, the cushion comes with a two-way stretch, vapour permeable and waterproof cover, making it extremely convenient and hygienic. The cover is complete with a handle and discreet design, allowing for simple and convenient transportation.
Two Types of Gel
The white area of the cushion is made from a low-bearing viscoelastic, self contained and leak free polyurethane gel, resulting in minimal pressure on high risk areas such as pelvic protuberances. The blue area is made of a highly reticulated viscoelastic gel, which resists fluid migration thus preventing penetration and bolstering patient stability. The differences in gel consistencies are represented in the image below.
