Nortech Introduces ComfaGel™: Gel Therapy Cushions &
Overlay Mattress for Anti-Fatigue Applications
Nortech introduces its newest line of
Seating and positioning products. Comfa-Gel™ uses Nortech's
same basic properties used in its therapy gel. Comfa-Gel™
products are designed for use by those with a temporary or chronic
condition that requires prolonged seating and increased risk of
pressure ulcers or for use by those who experience discomfort
when seated due to arthritis, lower back pain, or other conditions.
Comfa-Gel™ wheelchair cushions are self-leveling; self-adjusting
cushions designed to minimize bottoming out, reduce pressure,
and provide an extremely stable and comfortable seating surface.
Comfa-Gel™ accommodates a wide range of body shapes, sizes,
and weights. The cushion consists of one gel bladder sealed down
the middle to prevent gel pooling and gel migration so that the
patient will not bottom out. The gel bladder is sealed between
two 1.5" pieces of foam. The cushion is the placed in a tear-resistant
non-skid bottom and vinyl top cover. The cover is fluid-proof,
antibacterial, easy to clean, and fire-retardant.
Nortech's Comfa-Gel™ Cushion with carrying strap has the
versatility of being a wheelchair or any seating surface cushion.
Constructed internally the same as the Comfa-Gel™ wheelchair
cushion, this cushion's cover is a vinyl, tear-resistant, fluid-proof,
antibacterial, and fire-retardant. The convenient strap for carrying
and securing cushion to any chair relieves pressure when sitting
in one position for extended periods of time. The cushion is great
for sporting events or hard surface seating for long periods of
Comfa-Gel™ Overlay Mattress for hospital beds is the premier
support surface that offers outstanding comfort and pressure reduction.
This innovative 35" x 78" x 3" overlay mattress
is constructed of three (3) pieces of foam. The bottom layer is
sealed to the middle piece of foam. The middle layer has 3 cutouts
where four 16" x 18" sturdy plastic bags filled with
a lightweight gel formula called a gel bladder are inserted into
the three different cutouts for the following body regions: One
for the lower body/foot region, two for the middle/lower back
region, and one for the head/upper region. A seal down the middle
of each gel bladder prevents gel pooling and gel migration so
that the patient will not bottom out. Finally the top egg crate
layer is sealed on and then placed in a fluid-proof polyurethane-coated
nylon cover. The cover is durable, antibacterial, antifungal,
and fully unzips for easy cleaning. Four elastic straps secure
the corners snugly to the mattress.
