ErgoSeet Gel Cushion Therapeutic Chair Comfort Seat Cushion
he ergoSEET uses "dynamic contouring" using shorter pillars in key areas that allows the pelvis to immerse into the seat, reducing peak pressures by 71%.
- Airflow – Ports & Pillars allow for movement of air to help keep you cool. The holes in the ergoSEET allows heat to dissipate from your body; the pillars don’t collapse allowing the air to move between you and the seating surface.
- Weight Distribution – Pillars work to distribute weight. The Pillars on the bottom are shorter in specific areas to allow for the immersion of your pelvic structure mainly your Ischial Tuberosities, most people may not know the name, but these are the two sharp bones that hurt when you sit too long on the bleacher seats. As an example, a 200-pound person sitting on an office chair will have 130 pounds of weight distributed on the buttocks and posterior thigh where those two peak pressure areas are centered on the Ischial tuberosities. Independent testing shows a decrease in peak pressures as high as 71% using the ergoSEET.
- Posture – Varying Pillar heights allows the pelvic structure to immerse and tilt forward putting the spine in proper alignment. By putting yourself in the proper seated position you sit more relaxed and reduce stress on your lower back. The ergoSEET also uses shorter Pillars in the back center of the cushion for the immersion of the coccyx more commonly known as the tailbone. This is another sharp bony prominence that is not ideally suited for significant weight bearing and is also a area of increased risk if the person is in a "slouched" posture.
- Waterproof – The unique closed cell EVA used to make the ergoSEET is very different from your standard seat cushions, these are primarily made of either an open cell structure which absorbs moisture and generates heat or gel which will not breath and also generates heat. The ergoSEET is very unique in the fact that it is comfortable, waterproof and dishwasher safe. Just put it the dishwasher and you have a new seat whenever you want.
