FOAM - Action CommuterAction® Centurian. Excellent support with this 1/2"H dry polymer pad sealed to 1(3/4)" polyfoam cushion. Convenient carry handle so you can take it with you anywhere. The key material in all of these products is AKTON® dry polymer, a soft polymer that is a product of modern chemistry. It looks and feels like a gel, but is more body friendly and wears longer. AKTON polymer won't leak, flow, or bottom out, and it is tissue equivalent. It moves with patients, not against them, to reduce pressure and shear, the two leading causes of pressure sores. AKTON polymer is also X-ray translucent and easy to clean with standard disinfectant. It will not support microbiological growth, and it won't absorb body fluids or odors. Zippered Black cover has a non-skid base and is machine washable and dryable.
For those prone to skin breakdown to bottom areas including sacrum/coccyx, this wheelchair pad helps reduce skin stretch, pressure and soreness from sitting long periods. Low maintenance and removable cover is practical.
