EXGEL Standard Cushion (High Support)

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 reducing mobility and enjoyment in daily activities.

Thus, a good pressure distribution cushion is of utmost importance to wheelchair users.

The EXGEL standard cushion contains a proprietary material that distributes pressure by conforming to your body's shape. Its extreme softness 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 our skin and the cushion.

Enjoy hours of comfortable sitting and postural stability with EXGEL.
