The ULTRAGEL® ECONOMAX™ Gel Donut is our most economical reusable gel positioner available for multiple uses within home, extended care, clinical and hospital settings. It is used to minimize skin pressure and enhance comfort and skin safety for patients and users undergoing surgery, therapy, or requiring extended immobilization or bed-confinement. They are truly the "Swiss Army Knife of gel positioners" seamless, non-tacky, and self-healing if punctured.
They are also uncoated, allowing for direct skin-contact with the USP mineral-oil based gel to beneficially condition the skin in the contact area.
The gel simulates human tissue and is designed to move with the user, not against them, to reduce both skin pressure and skin-shear forces, the leading causes of pressure sores.
Available for purchase in 3 sizes to suit neonatal, pediatric and adult users.

"Works, first time, in a long time with no pain in heel." Ritz T. 7/8/20
"I'm in a power wheelchair. Fortunately, I don't have pressure sores but I do have problems with multiple epidermal cysts on my left buttock. I put the gel donut under the affected area when I take a bath. It not only relieves pressure but also allows warm water to get underneath the cysts." Ryan S. 7/20/20
