What are the Putnams Pressure Relief Cushions made from?

The Sero Pressure range of Relief Cushions are made from high density CertiPUR® foam to support and disperse pressure while seated. 

The integral pockets of the rippled (or egg box style) foam allow air to circulate enabling heat to disperse, while the high profile foam helps eliminate numbness and relieves pressure points. Our cushions also come in regular or armchair sizes and different thicknesses for different weights. See our size guide here.
