GEL - Action CenturianAction® Centurian. Low profile pad for users on the move. 5/8"H dry polymer pad is sealed to 5/8" polyfoam cushion to create a thin lightweight pad for foot propelling. Waterproof inner cover for incontinence. 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.
A thinner wheelchair pad that is designed for those to move about in wheelchair using their feet whereas some cushions are designed more for sitting upright or back in the chair. Low maintenance.
