3 WAYS IN WHICH PURAP HELPS THOSE WITH LIMITED MOBILITY. When you sit, pressure gets concentrated on a few contact points - typically under your sacrum, ischium, and tailbone.This creates pressure "hotspots" that are the starting point for sores. PURAP minimizes hotspots and prevents new pressure sores from developing. The PURAP cushion dissipates pressure effectively and provides a low uniform pressure. This helps prevent worsening of existing sores, heal existing sores (even in advanced stages), and prevent recurrence.
The PURAP also prevents circulation cut-off and skin shear, and helps maintain optimal skin microclimate. This relieves the sitting pain, numbness and soreness in your bottom. FLUID 3D FLOTATION TECHNOLOGY OUTPERFORMS FOAM, GEL AND AIR CUSHIONS IN PRESSURE REDUCTION.The clinically tested fluid 3D Flotation technology uses 3 different layers - a unique fluid, air, and foam. The fluid layer is closest to the body and increases the direct support area for your body. The fluid moves freely in the bladder to provide dynamic pressure reduction. This prevents pressure concentrating on any one spot and provides a uniform low pressure. The foam and air layers are designed to provide comfort. Other cushions compress and'pack down' to form a hard surface. This distributes pressure unevenly and creates high pressure'hotspots' under the sacrum, ischium, and tailbone. These hotspots are the starting point for sores. PURAP does not'pack down'. It eliminates high pressure hotspots and provides low uniform pressures. This prevents the formation of sores and helps existing sores heal. Observe progress for a week.
When you sit on a foam or gel cushion, you "sink-in" and may experience some instant relief. However, these cushions then push back against your bottom which creates high pressure hotspots.With the PURAP cushion, you don't sink-in. The fluid layer may feel "firm" as it is designed to increase support area without compressing. It dissipates the pressure laterally away from the body and does not push back against your bottom. We recommend you observe your pressure sores and sitting pain for a week to start seeing the benefits of the PURAP cushion.
