The EquaGel Protector Pressure Cushion is similar to the Equagel General Cushion with the addition that it is slightly thicker than the General Cushion. Almost rubbery to the touch it has unbelievable tensile, compression strength and incredible durability. However its most amazing feature is its column buckling.

Column buckling refers to the way EquaGel behaves under weight. Each wall of gel is capable of supporting only a light load, when it has a weight that exceeds that threshold the wall of gel buckles into the hollow area between walls. It then passes the weight to the surrounding walls for support, this happens instantly and repeatedly until the maximum surface area of pressing weight is evenly supported by largely equalized pressure.

The peak pressure points of the ischial tuberosities and the coccyx/sacrum buckle into the EquaGel™ feeling almost as if they are freefoating within the cushion while the thighs and buttock of the user are supported.

Each cushion also utilizes a two-stage buckling approach. The top of the cushion as a small grid of gel that is extra sensitive of pressure needs, it is the comfort layer. This top layer buckles easily and allows the parts of a user that need support to sink into the lower layer, the support layer, while holding the rest of the user up in good posture.

Some of the cushions also feature a pelvic contour. This gentle contouring mimics the natural sitting shape and further distributes pressure away from sensitive areas.

FEATURES
