Is the gel sandwiched in the middle of foam? One description of materials lists foam, one lists foam and gel. Can the vinyl side be flipped over to be used as the top?

I bought this cushion for use while sitting for extended periods on a hard wooden chair rather than a wheelchair. I find it is extremely comfortable to sit on for long periods and I'm sure it would be very comfortable for wheelchair users. I have used it several times and it is very effective cushioning and redistributing weight - it also appears to be very durable, always regaining its shape after use. Haven't examined it's insides, or needed to wash the cover yet, but I would guess the gel is sandwiched between foam pads. This product is saving my butt, literally!Read More
Perfect fit and very comfortable. The price was so much less than any other too!Read More
I received the cushion in less than one week after ordering it. It is a well made product with a gel insert that molds to your shape when you sit on it. However, the material that covers it is plastic and very slick. This makes it hard to use because of constantly sliping and sliding on it. Other than that oversight, the product is very comfortable and would most definitely make sitting for long periods much better.Read More
For handicapped people, it s a challenge to not slide around and slip off.Read More
Questions & Answers
The gel is embedded in the foam. For safety reasons, the cushion should not be turned upside down to prevent it from slipping.
