Complex Pressure Relief
This cushion uses a combination of gel and foam to provide excellent levels of pressure relief for high risk patients. The reticulated polyurethane gel avoids fluid migration, therefore preventing penetration of the cushion and allowing for maintenance of shape. The high resiliency foam base improves support to the patient, particularly by supporting bony protuberances that represent a high risk of pressure sore development.
Sturdy and Reliable
The two components of this cushion work together to create better pressure distribution while bolstering comfort and stability, making for an improved pressure relief experience. To ensure these layers stay together, they are permanently bonded, eliminating any risk of separation. This means that throughout the life of this cushion, it will reliably provide the same levels of pressure relief to the user.
What If I'm Over the Maximum User Weight?
The maximum user weight of 90kg may be too small for some users, but luckily, suitable options are available. The Systam Duoform Gel Pressure Relief Cushion provides a similar level of relief, and is available in a number of versions with maximum user weights up to 160kg.
