Equazone has the back up of foam internally so the user gets the high risk pressure reduction but any air loss they still have the back up of foam

Comfortable air cushion
“We started using the Equazone as it offered so many positives being a very high risk air cushion as well as being really stable and very cost effective. After having it on contract for a period of time it became apparent it could do more than we originally though so now it has replaced other foam and gel cushions on our matrix.”
