Astro Durham

The Astro Durham is manufactured from only the very best quality, temperature sensitive memory foam (or visco elastic surface). When coupled with a high density combustion ether modified foam base, this product achieves outstanding comfort, whilst providing very good pressure reducing qualities, when compared to others in its class.

A high frequency welded cover envelopes the final product, which is available as standard, alongside that of a non-slip base for maximum user and safety consideration. This high risk pressure reducing cushion is probably the best value product on the market today.

This product is also available in castellated form.
