Gelite Air wheelchair pressure relief cushion

Innovative gel wheelchair cushion specially designed to provide pressure relief by combining our unique thermoplastic memory gel technology with air cavities for maximum immersion, comfort and prevention of pressure sores. Wheelchair users are at great risk from pressure sores (decubitus ulcers). A number of studies point to interface pressure between the body and the seating surface as the primary contributor to the formation of pressure sores. Working with an NHS specialist seating service, we have used detailed pressure mapping technology to help maximise the pressure relieving properties in the design and structure of the memory gel layer.

"I have tried many cushions in the past and I have found that sitting for a long period of time really hurt my bottom and made me uncomfortable.

However, with the Gelite Air wheelchair pressure relief cushion I have found a comfortable cushion that supports my bottom for long periods of time, and aids my pushing performance as it helps my body posture to keep upright.

I would highly recommend the Gelite Air wheelchair pressure relief cushion to everyone that wants total comfort in wheelchairs.”
