EquaGel Pressure Cushion Adjustable Protector with washable cover
Available in many sizes.
The Equagel Adjustable Protector puts you in charge of your comfort.
The top half of the cushion - the comfort layer - has two options to fit your needs and to adjust the protection you need.
One has a sculpted trochanter bucket ¼" deep for extra cushioning and the second top layer has a deeper bucket ¾" for comfort and added stability.
Find the layer that best suits you! EquaGelTM is a dry-polymer gel, almost rubbery.
It is not a liquid. This gel has unbelievable tensile and compression strength. One of its most amazing features is referred to as column buckling. Simply put, each wall of gel is capable of supporting only a marginal load. When that threshold is exceeded, the wall buckles under and passes the weight to the surrounding walls for support. This "buckling and weight-passing" happens instantly and repeatedly until the maximum surface area of pressing weight is evenly supported by sufficient walls to hold the weight up, regardless of its shape.
Applied to seat cushions, the pressure points of the ischium and coccyx are allowed to buckle into the cushion without resistance while the buttocks are supported evenly.
The area's most likely to develop pressure sores are allowed to float nearly pressure-free within the pad while the client's weight is distributed evenly across the cushion.
