Qbi-Gel

The Qbi-Gel is an extremely comfortable, low profile, high risk cushion. It has a safety feature of being multi directional, and comes complete with a specialised cover which helps dissipate heat and moisture using natural ventilation. Recommended for clients who would not normally accommodate a gel product.

It is a multi layered cushion constructed from Sunmate, a leading memory foam, with an envelope of hi tech gel. This provides excellent pressure distribution properties and shear reduction neccessary for high risk client care. The Qbi-Gel is an extremely low-profile product (typically 1½”) which has little effect on the wheelchair seating aspect, therefore not inhibiting the transferral process. It also comes complete with a non slip base and an inner thermo plastic vapour permeable liner.

Sizes:    The Qbi-Gel comes in 16”x16”, 17”x17”, 18”x16”, 18”x17” and 20”x18” only. All cushions are 1 ½” in thickness.

Cover:    Hi tech spacer material which gives excellent air circulation and comfort complete with a non slip base, heavy duty concealed zip and slider, with an inner thermo plastic vapour permeable liner.

Foam Insert:    High grade Sunmate memory foam, enveloped in gel.
