Home > Products > Managing Pressure Points

Science and common sense observations have helped us to better understand that the lifestyle that we lead in a modern world does not always suit our bodies. This is especially relevant to the sedentary life style that we often lead where we are spending much of our waking hours sitting in a vehicles and at a desk. Even much of our leisure time in sitting watching TV and sports, playing video games or just relaxing in the lawn chair.

All this places our body in one spot for a long time, creating pressure points on parts of our body that were never designed for such prolong contact. Elbows, forearms and the sides of legs (parts of the body that do not have much if any muscle or fatty tissue to provide cushion) are a primary points of sedentary contact, that over time can suffer from this continuous pressure contact. The results are apparent with pain, tender tissue, sores and the not so obvious issues with transferred pain exhibited in pinched nerves, joint pain, headaches and stress. Eliminating these pressure points with a lifestyle change is advisable but not always practical or obtainable.

This is where Gelepads provide the best solution. Gelepads, by design are intended to mimic the natural padding of soft human muscle, (think of a baby laying on his mother’s breast - it does not get much better than that) providing you the cushion for spots on your body where you need it most. Instantly adding the experience of natural muscle to that part of your body that needs the cushioning. The nature of the unique properties of the medical quality gel contained in the Gelepad and the soft fabric covering provide a natural feeling and comfort that will eliminate the pain and soreness you experience on your pressure points.
