Micro-climate thermo regulation materials that come into contact with the skin affect the nature of the climate skin is exposed to, but that is only part of the story.
- Excessive moisture can make skin weaker – as can excessive dryness.? Urine is particularly bad not only due to moisture but it also contains damaging chemicals and promotes bacterial growth
- At higher temperatures the skin demands more nutrition and oxygen – which makes it prone to ulceration.? However, heat also reduces the mechanical strength of the skin.
- Older skin is thinner, weaker and drier – making it more prone to shear and friction damage
Coolover fabric’s 3D spacer knit allows air to move freely, keeping you cooler and drier.
Cooler as moisture can more easily evaporate and drier as moisture is moved away from the skin.
CoolOver is available on all Cushions, Backs and the Posturite range
