The EquaGel General Gel Cushion
is a seat cushion that is made out of medical grade polymer gel and has a sculpted pelvic contour. This cushion provides moderate cushioning and support without losing its shape or softness.
The EquaGel General Gel Cushion features two layers of gel grids: a top layer with smaller, softer cells, and a bottom lay with larger, firmer cells. These layers enable the cushion to effectively redistribute pressure through column buckling, which allows the user to sink into the cushion while remaining supported. When pressure is applied to a column from the top, it collapses, allowing weight to be shared across adjacent columns. The elastic gel columns always return to their original shape, which prevents bottoming out.
The EquaGel General Cushion has been molded to include a depression for the sacrum and ischial tuberosities. The two layers thin at the back to create a well that assists with redistributing pressure from high risk areas to the thighs and greater trochanters. This design also assists with positioning and maintaining posture, preventing the user from sliding forward. The General Cushion height is 2.0 inches, and the rear well height is 3/4 inch.
The fully washable, black, outer fabric of the cover is soft, stretchy, breathable, and fluid and flame resistant. There is a label on the left side of the cover to help users position their cushion correctly. The cover has Velcro on the base to secure it, a carrying handle on the back, and a zipper.
