In an effort to provide wheelchair cushions to a larger consumer market, the online e-commerce company Rehabmart.com, which markets rehabilitation and medical supplies, has formed a distribution partnership with the Mentor, Ohio-based company Polymer Concepts.
According to a recent news release, as a part of the distribution partnership, Rehabmart.com now offers Polymer Concepts’ PleezrX, a wheelchair cushion that blends Polymer Concepts’ Xcegel technology with Memory Foam Comfort Zone to provide users with a soft and comfortable seat. The contoured pressure equalization cushion is designed to supply support for the pelvis and lateral and medial thigh areas.
Polymer Concepts has reportedly pinpointed multiple applications for its Xcelgel technology, including mattress overlays, surgical uses and wheelchair seating. The Xcelgel technology features pressure reduction and shock absorbency. Hulet Smith, Rehabmart founder, CEO, emphasizes the organization’s excitement in partnering with Polymer Concepts, “We are delighted to introduce these fantastic wheelchair cushions designed by Polymer Concepts to more consumers.”
