High Risk Gel Cushion
GelZone offers High Risk pressure reduction in a Gel cushion
The GelZone is our expertly shaped gel cushion that distributes pressure over the whole seated area. Peak pressures are reduced dramatically provides the skin with more protection due to the gel being extremely close to the skins surface.
- High Risk performance slow-moving Gel fluid pouch
- Temperature reducing Gel cushion helps combat micro-climate
- Sliding movements reduced by better conformity of the flexible gel
What it does…
The GelZone is our High Risk pressure reducing Gel cushion that maximises weight distribution across the entire seated area which takes users up to 25 stone
The Gel solution we have created is very slow moving and won’t migrate away from the vulnerable areas which gives confidence whilst in use.
GelZone’s top layer is a very thin layer of foam which brings the High Risk Gel performance extremely close to the skin but also assists the on keeping the user comfortable
The unique shaping we use across ClimaZone, GelZone and Lowzone+ means the weight is spread from the areas at risk of breakdown to the areas of less vulnerability.
It doesn’t end there – The GelZone also has the benefit of offering microclimate management to reduce heat and moisture build up from the gel solution with the added option of a Coolover cover to improve further
