The Gel Wraps for Swing Away Wheelchair Footrests are a pair of gel pads that wrap around the tubing of the leg rest. These gel cushions are designed to provide wheelchair users with the ultimate in wheelchair comfort and skin protection.
The Gel Wraps for Swing Away Wheelchair Footrests wrap around the down leg of swing-away footrests on manual wheelchairs. The wraps measure 2-1/2 inches wide, 9-1/2 inches long, and are designed to fit on the down leg of 70-degree swing-away footrests. Synergy Gel products have a cover made of chloroprene rubber with a nylon surface, similar to wet suit material. The cover is latex-free, soft and easy to clean. Inside is open cell foam and a polyurethane solid gel. The gel will not leak if punctured, is odorless, and is hypoallergenic. The gel pads protect bony prominences, reduce abrasions, shear, and harmful pressure-related problems. The Gel Wraps for Swing Away Wheelchair Footrests help caregivers prevent skin tears and injuries to the lower legs for their loved ones.
