Theory and Origin of Design:
As scientists and ergonomic experts study the negative impact of sitting on the human frame, they face a difficult task. They recognize that when we sit, the great majority of our weight is transmitted to the seating surface through two relatively small points called ischial tuberosities with a total surface area about the size of the head of a baseball bat. for grins, imagine sitting on two vertical baseball bats, one under each cheek–“Ouch.” This would suggest that our anatomical design was not really intended for the duties of the sedentary culture we have become. Thus much of the effort in seat design is focused on helping to distribute the body weight over a larger surface area of the seat. Although our bottom half is often the most padded region of our body, it is clear that we were not really designed to sit very long. We certainly are not designed to handle much pressure being applied to our tailbone. It is not supposed to bear our body weight when we sit. Poor chair and seat design, resulting from lack of understanding of functional human anatomy, has led to a lot of discomfort when we sit for prolonged periods. If the seating surface is flat, like in a stadium seat, church pew, or picnic bench, it really amplifies the discomfort by trying to take our poor round bottom and flatten it out so all the boney structures inside bottom out (excuse the pun). Hence, one of the goals of making us comfortable when we sit is to have our seating surface adapt to our shape and thus evenly distribute the our weight on the seat. The unique and wonderfully comfortable gel in the G-Seat does a great job adapting and dispersing weight. The auto-folding feature and associated compact size/weight of the gel seat makes in the perfect portable companion with many applications.
This requires that it be properly placed with the thinner side forward, in order to get the true benefit that can be derived.
Our Deluxe Mobility GSeat Cushion
The deluxe Mobility GSeat is a plush 2 inches thick in the main seating area toward the back. It uses polyurethane gel to disperse pressure at the point of contact, while also featuring a center relieved groove that eliminates pressure on the the tailbone and soft tissue. There is nothing else currently on the market that compares in comfort and postural support.
Dynamic Density Technology combines the benefits of a generous portion of gel and memory foam to create a medium weight cushion that provides superior comfort (about 3.5 lbs). This one is quite a bit larger than the regular Gseat and requires a little larger seating surface, but if you have the room, the comfort of this one is unbeatable.
The Integrated Handle and foldable design is patented technology that makes the Mobility G-Seat conveniently portable.

The seating surfaces we face on a daily basis are often not comfortable. One of our main complaints involves the point of contact where our body weight exerts pressure on the seat of a chair. This often leads to discomfort and fatigue. The G-Seat standard and deluxe Mobility G-Seat model uses visco-elastic gel layered over dense memory foam, as well as a functional design to disperse pressure and improve the level of comfort wherever you sit.

A Doctor’s Perspective
“When you sit, you place most of your pressure on your tailbone (coccyx and sacrum) and hip bones (specifically the ishial tuberocities). With the patented opening that the standard G-seat and Deluxe mobility G-Seat have, combined with the extra durable and plush gel/memory foam used throughout the rest of the cushion, pressure is virtually removed from these areas. In my practice, I have found that the Deluxe Mobility G-Seat cushion offers the most pressure relief and will fit any size and weight properly. However, the lighter and thinner standard size G-seat cushion is the perfect solution for lighter weight people or people who just want to improve their posture and seating alignment, as well as improve their overall comfort level, without quite as drastic of an adjustment in their seating”.
