Pressure ulcers are a common problem in wheelchair users.

Extended periods of sitting exerts pressure on our skin. This is made worse by the friction between the wheelchair seat and our body, which can cause our skin to tear. Elderly with thin and fragile skin are especially prone to skin breakage, which then gives rise to ulcers and potential infection. This can cause distress and unnecessary hospitalisation, further reducingmobility and enjoyment in daily activities.

Thus, a good pressure relief cushion is of utmost importance for wheelchair users.

The EXGEL Owl Cushion contains a proprietary material that distributes pressure by conforming to your body's shape. It's unique owl shape was developed after extensive research by Kaji Corporation and the Foundation for Yokohama Rehabilitation Service.

The extreme softness of EXGEL is gentle even for the most delicate skin. EXGEL's high shock absorbency is 10x greater than normal urethane foam, which helps to buffer the shearing forces between ourbody and cushion.

Enjoy hours of comfortable sitting and postural stability with EXGEL.
