Foam VS Gel

Foam Is Better Than Gel

• We have various blends of foams, ranging from extra firm to super soft and forgiving
• Allows support even under pressure
• Positioned in the middle of the seat so that it sits directly under your hip bones
• Firm at first, but when weight is applied, it instantly absorbs all weight or pressure
• Allows proper blood flow which eliminates pain
• Firmer than your standard "Tempur-Pedic" style foam
• Takes minimal pressure to keep its shape
• Extra high density foam on the sides to pick us as much weight as possible

Why We Don't Use Gel

• Retains heat while sitting on it or parked in the sun (ouch!)
• Main issue is it's false sensation to absorb your weight
• Gel is soft to touch at first but rapidly becomes hard and does not displace weight properly
• Gels lack of support leads to lack of blood flow wich means you experience discomfort
