Pressure Relief Pads, Gel

Definition : Cushioning pads designed to reduce pressure on specific areas or the whole body that are filled with gel. These pads consist of a sealed plastic (e.g., vinyl) enclosure filled with liquid gel; the enclosure may include several interconnected sections that allow the movement of the gel when pressure is applied. Dedicated gel-filled pressure relief pads may be conformed in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are mainly used to distribute localized pressure to larger body areas or to shift the body weight to a different position, especially to prevent or alleviate pressure sores. Gel-filled pads are frequently used on top of chairs, wheelchairs, tables, and beds.
