EXGEL Standard Cushion (High Support)

$320.00

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.

        Not just another cushion

        The EXGEL cushions were developed by Kaji Corporation in Japan. The company was established in 1969 as a sewing manufacturer. But in 1995, while searching for new materials, Kaji developed the unique EXGEL mateiral that has both solid and liquid properties. The founders realised the impact that this could have on the prevention of pressure sores and started developing pressure relief cushions. True enough, the outstanding features of EXGEL have been rated so highly by healthcare professionals that Kaji's product lines have now expanded into other fields such as surgical pads, nursing mattresses, industrial and even motor sports.

        When you receive your cushion, you'll realise that every detail and material used has been carefully thought through. This is achieved by a dedicated R&D team that is committed to giving their very best.

        To begin, experienced designers draw up a design based on the input of rehabilitation professionals. They then select the most suitable materials in collaboration with material specialists who have an intimate knowledge of the pros and cons of each. Once this is completed, prototypes are developed and tested multiple times to refine the design until it's met all the criteria. Not only does Kaji pay an extreme amount of attention to the materials used, their long history as a sewing manufactures ensures the highly skilled craftsmanship that you'll notice with every stitch. All the products are manufactured in-house or in partnership with trusted factories under the quality management standard of ISO 9001. The final products go through another round of stringent checks before each cushion is placed inside an individual, sturdy, cardboard carrier.

        Feel it to see the difference.
