Those at risk from pressure sores or ulcers can include anyone with a Spinal Injury, Diabetes, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's or anyone with paralysis or who is confined to sitting down in a wheelchair or chair for long periods, or recovering from surgery or illness.
For pressure care protection and prevention when toileting this Seat Pad distributes weight evenly over the surface of the buttocks allowing the user longer periods on the toilet without the need to be concerned of tissue breakdown.
This single section, horseshoe shaped Pressure Relieving Gel Toilet Pad fits all standard toilet seats and toilet seat risers. It is secured easily by way of three 20 cm long nylon velcro, easy clean industrial straps which can be cut to size once securely fitted.
Even if your toilet is fitted with a seat riser the Gel Pad is simply placed on the top and should not move once correctly fitted with the three velcro straps. The Gel Pad is designed to distribute pressure whilst toileting and considering a pressure sore can start up after only 4 minutes in people with poor circulation; it is a must for everyone who may be at risk. They also allow the user to be sat on the toilet for much longer periods safe in the knowledge their skin will not breakdown on what is normally a very hard plastic surface.
