EquaGel Pressure Care Cushions
The EquaGel General Pressure Care Cushion is designed for moderate cushioning needs and prevention of pressure sores. It offers maximum comfort to users by distributing their weight across their seat evenly, minimising pressure on the buttocks and reducing pressure sores. EquaGel® is a dry-polymer gel, almost rubbery to the touch. It has unbelievable tensile and compression strength, incredible durability, and outstanding column buckling.
Column buckling refers to the way EquaGel® behaves under-weight. Each wall of gel is capable of supporting only a light load. When that threshold is exceeded, the wall of gel buckles into the hollow area between walls 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 largely equalized pressure.
The peak pressure points of the ischial tuberosities and the coccyx/sacrum buckle into the EquaGel® feeling almost as if they are free-floating within the cushion, while the thighs and buttock of the user are supported.
