This cushion has a hole in the middle and consists of three layers.
While its first comfort layer supportsthe buttocks, the second layer of a smart plate helps in retaining the shape of the cushion. The next layer is of a smart sleeve that allows ventilation. The product has been designed, keeping in mind the pain points of decubitus patients.
