Many users of wheelchairs and other durable medical equipment incur pressure and abrasion, resulting in pain and sometimes skin breakdown. To users of crutches, walkers, canes and the like, it can mean unnecessary pain and a variety of health problems.
That’s why every client, clinician and rehabilitation products dealer is always looking for the best interface between the user and the equipment. That’s where our range of gel products come in.
The Gel Ovations product line is focused on padding and protecting people to prevent pressure and discomfort when using wheelchairs, scooters, walkers and similar mobility equipment.
Gel Ovations products were created to address the interface between people and durable equipment.
Using proprietary hydrophilic and hydrophobic gels in different applications, and offering them in a variety of configurations and attachable surfaces, Gel Ovations offers the industry’s best solutions to improving comfort by reducing both pressure and abrasion.
When a hard object is pressed into a solid gel, the gel conforms to the shape of the hard object while simultaneously continuing to provide support.
That combination is why solid gels are so comfortable. Gel products are comfortable for most people. The comfort and quality are a result of the cover, the gels used, and the designs including attachment options.
- are latex-free
- feature a solid gel for comfort and support
- have a durable neoprene nylon surface, which is soft, easy to clean, and highly efficient at distributing pressure
