SOLID GEL IS THE BEST SOLUTION. Because it has the ability to take a point of pressure and spread it out over wider area than foam or other products. This means that the ‘pressure is widely distributed, reducing the pressure at any one point’’. Done right this will reduce the pressure below a place where that pressure cuts off blood flow. Yet there is such thing as too much of a good thing, and just because a little works really well, doesn’t mean more is always better. Our Dimensional GEL pads, and layering of GEL and foam are ways of enhancing the benefits of GEL. All Gel Ovations GELS are solid, so they will never ‘leak out’ if the cover is cut.
