Confor™ Foam has been recognized as the BEST seat cushion available for comfort and impact safety since the Apollo Space Program. The real value is that when sitting in one position it will form–fit without the development of pressure points. It is open celled, elastomeric, urethane foam that breathes and wicks away body moisture. For this reason it is often used and unexcelled for use in wheelchairs, and because of it's unique ability to absorb shock, it provides an impact safety factor that has no equal! Confor Foam can be easily cut by a sharp knife or razor (electric kitchen knife works great!) and can be glued to itself with many adhesives for custom shapes but It should always be used with an absorbent breathable cover such as cotton, wool, or polyester.
Energy absorbing foams are ideal for construction of seat pads since these form to shape with body temperature and weights and become form fitting reducing pressure points. Depending on the seat thickness (even ½″ thick will make an amazing difference in seating comfort over bare seats and sailplane cockpit floors) an ideal seat cushion would be made of 3 densities combined as an example, green bottom layer, blue middle and pink top layer in any combination and thickness. These foams like most other types should also be covered in a fabric, vinyl or leather covering material to preserve the foam and keep it dry and clean.
