Moldable Support



Designed for air transmission and heat reduction. This breathable laminate combines a high-stretch polyester top layer with a breathable vapor barrier.


The fluid resistant exterior has supple leathery properties that provide an easily cleaned surface and protection for the inner cushion. Comfort-Tek has multi-dimensional stretch and helps alleviate pressure on bony prominences.


The Comfort-Tek and Stretch-Air covers are available with one of six accent colors: Blue, Green, Silver, Red, Purple, or Pink. Accent colors can be applied to the cushion via colored piping. If no colors are selected, our standard silver reflective piping is used. Additional fee applies.Back Cushion Colored Piping
