Pressure Relief Pads, Water

Definition : Cushioning pads filled with water that are designed to reduce pressure on specific areas of the body. These pads consist of a sealed plastic (e.g., vinyl) enclosure filled with water; the enclosure may include a valve to fill or empty the pad. They are mainly used to distribute localized pressure to larger body areas or to shift the body weight to a different position, especially to prevent or alleviate pressure sores. Water-filled pads are frequently used on top of chairs, wheelchairs, tables, and beds.
