General Use Cushions
- Product Description
The ultimate cushion - The Protector is 2.5 inches of EquaGel. Designed and made in the USA this is an amazingly comfortable cushion, it has a 1" sculpted pelvic bucket for added comfort and stability. Most people at risk of pressure ulcers should use this cushion on each wheelchair or other chair in their home, work, car, etc.
HCPCS coded for medical reimbursement. EquaGel™ is an amazing space-age dry-polymer, columnar structured, gel with unbelievable tensile and compression strength. The"column buckling" technology is highly effective and fully patented. Each wall of gel buckles under and passes weight to the surrounding walls for support. Applied to seat cushions, the narrow pressure points of the ischium and coccyx are allowed to buckle into the cushion without resistance while the broad areas of the buttocks and legs are supported evenly. The areas most likely to develop pressure sores are allowed to float nearly pressure-free within the gel pad while the users weight is distributed evenly across the cushion.
Traditional cushioning technologies compress and push back causing pressure and ischemia and putting a user at risk of developing an ulcer. The farther a foam is compressed, the harder it pushes back. This means greater risk of developing a sore. Traditional cushioning compression strategy only slows the development of pressure sores. Equapressure eliminates by eliminating pressure points. Air cushions have this same problem, especially as they go out of proper adjustment. With the Equagel gel seat cushion users can sit comfortably and safer for longer. In 10 out of 10 clinical trials, patients with stage 3 decubitus ulcers saw those sores close with the aid of our buckling-gel technology. It has similar widely-recognized success in wound care as a critical care bed.
EquaGel™s patented technology has been approved as a medical surface in the US and Canada.
The Protector is ideal for people seeking great comfort and relief and who are at medium to high risk of pressure sores. The Protector is the ultimate gel seat cushion.

I am a Director of a Graphic design dept. with Multiple Sclerosis so walking is out. I sit in my office chair for about 14 hours a day. My tail bone and legs were killing me. This has helped me relieve my pain.
Product was fine and is working as planned.
Very happy with the product as well as the quick service. Thanks!
I bought it for my father. He loves it. Thankyou.
It's exactly what I needed for long rehearsal hours with a symphony.
Best seat cushion hands down. I'm even considering getting the double thick model just to have one in my office and company truck. Thanks Guys!.
Excellent product, much better than standard foam cushion, great support, great service..
This product was purchased for my Father who is 89 years old. He sits a lot and it is wonderful because of the even distribution on his weight..
This is my 2nd one and I love em and the service and delivery was excellent. This stuff is a real miracle for me. I am using them for my motorcycle seat, inside of a 30 minute ride I can ride 4 hours without stopping. Thankyou!
Excellent service and an excellent product.
Great product, I'm an airline pilot and this is amazing for my posture and back. Highly recommended.
The seat has kept my hips from hurting
The cushion is amazing, I sit for very long periods and this works wonders. Not soft and squishy but no pinching or legs falling asleep.
Incredible product! Use it for driving, computer, all "sitting"!
The cushion is working very well on my mother's wheelchair. We are very pleased with the cushion. Thank you!
