Shear Transfer Zone® Cover Design Protects against shearing

Silicone-coated, shear-minimizing fabric bands located on the cover’s underside help prevent heels, sacrum, and scapula from “digging into” surface. Protect against damaging effects of micro shear, macro shear, and rotational (pivot-induced) shear.
  • Unmatched protection from “bottoming out”
