Patients at risk for pressure ulcers.


The NYOrtho APEX CORE Gel-Foam Cushion combines a firm core foundation that eliminates hammocking with the superlative APEX innovative design that chambers the gel-pod closer to the top of the cushion, providing a cooler interface between the patient and wheelchair. A high-performance stretch cover improves moisture evaporation and enhances the APEX™ design features.
