The Low Down
The Tempra-Gel Range incorporates the very latest seating technologies combining not only the NASA developed Visco Elastic heat sensitive foam but also a 3 dimensional Gel system that adjusts gradually to the users movement providing unsurpassed comfort and support.
About Tempra Gel
Tempra Gel is a unique combination of heat sensitive Visco Elastic Foam and Gel Cellular technologies.
Tempra Gel helps reduce pressure points by moulding uniquely to each user’s body shape allowing for increased comfort over longer periods of sitting.
Tempra Gel provides the user with a temperature regulating seat cushion that offers an enjoyable cool feeling and prevents heat build up. This is provided by Tempra Gel’s excellent thermal conductivity that favours heat dispersion, helping to lower skin temperature and improving blood flow.
Three good reasons to sit on TempraGel®:
1. Higher back muscles relaxation. A comparative test, performed at Delsys Inc in Boston USA , shows that in the back muscles for all seating positions, the muscle activity is lower with the gel seat than with the foam seat. This indicates that the back muscles while seating on the gel surface are more relaxed (decrease in the EMG activity ranged from 6.0 % to 27.1 % in the low back muscles). Lower levels of muscle activity are conducive to a reduction of the muscle fatigue and a more comfortable sensation in the back.
2. Lower skin temperature. TempraGel®, being a good conductor of heat, allows to maintain a lower skin temperature on the contact surface, compared to commonly used foam’s cushions (from 4°C less in the first hour to 1°C less after 7 hours of seating).
3. Less pressure concentration. TempraGel® helps to maintain a correct posture without the body “settling” and searching for unnatural position to alleviate the discomfort deriving from pressure concentration. Comparative laboratory tests demonstrate that TempraGel® cushions gives, after one hour, a pressure reduction of around 20% in average and of around 60% in peaks, with benefits to blood circulation.
