Gelbodies Pressure Sore & Skin Protectors
Product Code: GB01/02/03/04
The Gelbodies protectors use a pressure relieving gel, which is found in high-end wheelchair cushions, to offer additional padding to points on the body where pressure sores tend to form. The addition of padding to these areas improves circulation to those points by evenly distributing the body weight in those areas. By improving circulation, the Gelbodies protectors not only help tp prevent pressure sores from forming, but also provide the patient with added overall comfort helping them to relax. Should not be worn for longer than 12 hours at a time.
Gelbodies are available for shin, knee, heel and ankle protection
