It's what's inside that counts

Science behind gel

The gel found in our support surfaces provides our best solution for pressure redistribution. The patented formulation6 and innovative grid structure of gel are designed to provide better immersion and envelopment than the foam found in our traditional mattresses.

2.5 million patients are diagnosed with pressure injuries every year.2 Let's talk numbers.

Gel technology - Our gel is specially engineered utilizing long polymer chains and is designed to distribute support while yielding to areas of concentrated pressure.

Traditional foam - Foam has a more interlinked, crystalline structure, achieving some flexibility through air voids distributed throughout.


Gel technology - Our gel can be molded into many different shapes and is designed to buckle to offload pressure on boney prominences and distribute it to the surrounding areas.

Traditional foam - Foam acts more like a solid, getting more dense when loaded and creating higher pressures under boney prominences.

Pressure injuries are 2x more likely to occur when skin shear is present.
We can help turn it around.

The value of gel technology

ShearGel layer - The ShearGel layer* was designed to help minimize shear between the surface and the patient. Its technology offers a layer of support so IsoFlex LAL and IsoFlex SE can move freely with patient movements.

CoreGel cushion - Located in the sacral regions, the CoreGel cushion creates a positioning pocket to help prevent patient migration.7 This design helps absorb and dispense patient weight to aid in pressure redistribution.

* Available only in IsoFlex surfaces

115 consecutive days while on our IsoFlex LAL surface, without developing HAPIs.8 It's possible.
