Backsaver foam is temperature sensitive and softening when it comes in contact with a warm surface; thus, in a seat cushion, the foam softens and conforms to the person's body. This provides even pressure distribution and unconstricted blood circulation, significantly reducing discomfort, even over long periods.
In addition, Backsaver foam has excellent energy absorption properties, which have made it excellent for use in the U. S. space shuttle program and in military aircraft and helicopters. Pilots find that Backsaver cushions reduce their discomfort and fatigue, even on missions of 8 hours or more. Backsaver foam is now available to the homebuilt and general aviation market.
Backsaver foam is softer than the softest of the Comfor foams, and is faster to soften when cold. Is very comfortable when used alone and even better when used with the comfort foams. Price is crazy high, is this stuff made from Unicorn tears or what?
