Gel Cushions
I have purchased multiple cushions....1 for a rocking chair, 1 for my computer chair, 2 largest cushions to use on my couch, 1 largest cushion for my husband's couch. We are both more than pleased. I have spinal stenosis and get spinal injections. My husband has had spinal surgery and also gets spinal injections. These cushions help relieve pressure whether lying down or sitting up. I enjoy the cushion in my computer chair as using the computer is one way I can keep in touch with family & friends. I highly recommend them to anyone who has pain issues or is stuck in a wheelchair. I am so thankf

Great product, even better customer service!
Love the seat cushions! I sit for long periods of time when working from home and I searched for a while for the best cushions I could find. I even bought a Herman Miller Aeron chair thinking it would be enough, but it wasn't. I still wanted a nice cushion to sit on. So I did some research for gel cushions, wheelchair cushions, and whatever else I could find. These were the best ones I found and I love them! I also wanted to return one and exchange it for the larger size and could not have had better customer service. I highly recommend Vive! Thank you guys very much!

Soo Comfy
Third one was the charm. Bought 2 padded cushions. Didn't like them. Returned them. Decided to try this one from Vive Health. It works great. Use it on my patio chair, dinning room chair, and recently on my car seat. It's just right. Helps my sore butt. May bye another one. Would definitely recomend this one . What's not to like.

Really Helped for Extended Sitting
I bought this cushion because my job requires me to sit for extended periods of time in front of the computer, and I have started to develop pressure sores as a result of sitting for so long. Ive also started moving around more (such as standing up to work at the bar counter) but I need some relief for when I do have to sit. This cushion has helped relieve the pressure from the chair. I can feel the gel inside helping to resdistribute my weight. I bought the 18x16 size because it fits into a number of chairs around the house. It has a handle for carrying, but because of the gel, its fairly hea

Vive Health Gel Seat Cushion
This is a good seat cushion for wheelchair or ANY chair. It is as advertised. The cover is SUPER easy to wash and dries in no time! I am using it for a wheelchair. I got the 15 x16 size. A bit smaller , but works great. There is a non- skid surface on bottom to keep it from sliding . Great feature but it would be great to have those ties also for times when the cover is being washed and you still need the cushion. This way it wont slide at all.

Great cushion
Unfortunately my cheap wheelchair seat is fabric slung across an open space above the supports. As a result the cushion began to fold in to the center. Looking at the picture that came with your cushion, I see that the wheelchair seat was rigid and went straight across. Wheelchair users should keep this in mind when considering a purchase. I am going to get a new wheelchair and consign the one I have to garbage pickup. Once I have a new one I will happily use my cushion from Vive.

Not bad, but could be improved
The cushion is nice and thick, but the gel core does not fully direct pressure away from the coccyx. In addition, the cushion needs to be tapered under the thighs--currently, too much pressure is applied to the bottom of the thighs (I weigh 165). The cushion is soft, but I need to change my seating position fairly frequently. I wouldn't recommend this cushion for someone with para- or quadriplegia who is lacking sensation in the buttocks.Otherwise, not bad.

The Best Gel Pillow Seat
We were in need of a pad to put on some hard wooden chairs. As I looked around I had seen many different ones, The one I kept going back to was the Vive Health Gel Seat Pillow. I liked it that you can get different sizes and the thickness of the seat was very appealing. I bought the largest one which happened to work out great. My husband was getting uncomfortable in his lounge chair and needed some extra cushioning on the seat. I put the gel cushion in place which fit beautifully and he now is able to sleep in the chair and spend many hours in it. He is going through many medical problems and

2nd seat is perfect too
This was for my granddaughter, 10, who is once again in a wheelchair. Her dad gave the 1st cushion away as her leg had healed. Now she fractured the knee and I just had to get another one. She loves the cushion and asked for a second one. Dad must give me the cushion when she is well.

3Happy Backs
I bought 3 gel/foam seat cushions. One for me, one for my husband, and one for his co-worker. My husband and co-worker drive many, many miles every week and come home road weary & in pain from sitting so long. These cushions have already made a difference and I am extremely happy with the quality and workmanship. These will last for many years. I highly recommend this company because of cost, quality, and customer service,

Great Cushion
More than I expected. Frankly, I have a hemorrhoid problem and do a lot of sitting. The cushion solved my problem. Very comfortable for long periods of sitting. I use it in my car also and I plan on a long drive from New York to Illinois shortly and am confident the cushion will serve its purpose. I will definitely tell my friends about your products.

Seat cushion
Ordered this cushion for my mother, not for a wheelchair but her favorite chair. She did not find it comfortable but she stated that it was excellent quality, liked the softness of the cover and the ability to wash the cover. She wished that it would have been the perfect cushion. The best part of this transaction was the friendly and awesome customer service. I work in an oncology center and responsible for assisting patients with purchasing durable medical equipment. I will now recommend this company to patients and their families! Thank you for a great purchasing experience.

Great Seat, Missing Safety strips
I love the consistency & texture of the cushion. However, given that I use this for my wheelchair. Safety is a concern. I couldve given it a full five star if the cushion came with velcro to attach to the hard Velcro on the bottom portion of my chair. Transferring would be easier & safer.

Gel us....maybe not.
Size is good for me ..I bought the 18x20 size's not firm enough for me feels more foamy than does cushion my vehicle seat but it does not provide near as much lift as my old cushion..a hunting seat cushion..which is very has layers of poly material and plastic sheets between them to make it remain firm...I prefer a bit more lift and density would be better with an added gel seat pad...which would make it an $80-100 pad ..a bit too much for my I am a disappointed buyer but it does cushion my ride...just not as much as I would

Gel seat cushion
I bought this seat for my mother who is on a wheelchair and sits all day. She absolutely loved it! Then I got another one for my oldest brother who suffers from back problems. He's also very satisfied with the seat. We're planning to buy another one for my mother-in-law. She also suffers from back problems. Thank you so much for this product. I highly recommend it.

So Comfortable
I have been using the cushion for a week now and it has made a huge difference. The cushion has just the right amount of firmness. I use it in my office chair, because Im at the computer for at least eight hours a day. Also, I like the non-slip bottom.

I am very satisfied with this cushion that I purchased from you. I bought it to put in a wheelchair. The only time I use the wheelchair is when I have to go out to the doctor. But that can mean sitting in it for a couple of hours at a time. This cushion has made this much easier to do. Thank you for a very fine product.

Well made
Well sized, this cushion gives nicely when seated, firm but giving in the right places. Re-shapes almost instantly. So far, the two I purchased have retained their shape completely.

Very comfortable!
I bought it for my son who works from home and has worn out his computer chair's original cushion. So I ordered the Vive Gel Seat Cushion as it seemed like it would be the most comfortable one according to reviews and how it's made. My son appreciates it and says it's very comfortable I actually sat in it and it is...

The Gel Cushion is very nice and comfortable. I have ordered this cushion from other companies but they have not been quite s good as this cushion. Not at all happy with UPS which had the package going all over multiple states. It took 15 days to get from California to Massachusetts!

Fabulous gel cushion
I bought this cushion for my 92 yr old Aunt as she was sitting in her chair so much in her assisted living apartment due to Covid and being isolated and I was worried about pressure sores . The cushion fit her chair perfectly and she absolutely loves it!! Excellent purchase !!

Give gel seat
It was a lot bigger than expected. Feels pretty good to sit on it..I thought I could lay on it,but its too big. It is a well made item..for those who need cushioning when sitting. I would recommend this. Price was pretty fair too. Has nice cover on it.

Butt, Take Care!
If you spend a lot of the day in a wheelchair, as I do. You will find this cushion as the best way to stop the pain and make you life liveable. I would also recomend it to anyone who has to spend a lot of time sitting, whether home or office.

Hours of Comfort
I bought the 20X18 gel cushion for my wheelchair. I weigh 300lbs and the hours melt away when watching tv or pedaling. The price was right compared to other cushions and its performance was better than I anticipated.

Best Ive had
This is the most comfortable, supportive manual wheelchair cushion Ive ever owned. The inner gel core molds to me so I can sit in comfort all day. I cant imagine finding a better cushion at this price and wonder if the expensive ones can be any better.

Package Deal
I bought the package deal of gel cushion, lumbar support and foot rest. All 3 are perfect for my remote home office use. They are very good quality. I am a 62 year-old 5 ft. 3 in woman who needs these devices with my office chair to make working at my computer for 8 to 10 hours a day comfortable. They are working out perfectly for me.

Gel cushion
This cushion has been a great help to my sciatica issue. I have to sit at my computer quite a bit and it really has given me relief! I just have to make sure I'm right in the middle for best support and comfort. Glad I bought it!

V ive only the best!
And my friends vivre is only the best. In the course of my life I have instance to buy other vice products Never behave they failed me In the occasion of buying a wheelchair seat gel-filled in the center once again they astounded me. When the item developed a leak probably from the kids bouncing on it vivre company went behind their warranty and Supply an exchange. Recommend them highly. Five stars All the way!

Customer Service
My husband is terminal and in constant pain. I tried to order this cushion on line last night to get him some relief. During the the check out process I got so frustrated because I couldn't get things to go through correctly. I just gave up and was so disappointed. First thing this morning, Carolina contacted me and asked if she could help me. I explained what was happening and she immediately went to work helping me get it right. Thank you so much for helping me help my husband!

This cushion makes my wheelchair so much more comfortable and Im now able to sit in it for longer periods of time! It is a little high but Im adjusting! It is thicker than some others so I sit higher in the chair and my feet barely hit the ground, which is OK. Id definitely recommend this cushion!!

Office chair pad
I had a hardwood chair for my desk chair and due to the small space I have my desk I couldn't change to a regular office chair. I had been using a pillow on the chair but my butt would start hurting right away. I ordered the Vive Health Gel Seat Cushion and I no longer have any pain in my butt while sitting at my desk. Thank you Vive Health!!

repeat buyer
i ordered one. found that it does what it says it does. i weigh 200 pounds and did NOT "bottom out" which results in trading one hard surface for another. It distributes the pressure and allows for longer, comfortable sitting time. i liked it so much that i went back and ordered one for the car. the delivery on both was FAST.

Great Fit and Comfortable
The gel cushion was purchased for my mother's transfer chair. She commented that the cushion makes such a difference and makes sitting for long periods in the transfer chair much more comfortable.

Exactly what my patient needed
This cushion was exactly what my patient needed and at the price that she needed it! Less expensive than competition. The only thing that I did have to change is to add the hard board from the bottom of her last cushion into the lining of this cushion so the very bottom would have the firmness she needed in her wheelchair.

Very pleased with my purchase. Already loaned my new cushion out. I may have to see if I can get another one only a little thicker. Maybe a 5" thick cushion.

Great for office chair
Using this on my office chair. It has solved all my sore back-end problems. I am only 155 pounds and I just don't have the self cushioning I need to sit all day.It definitely redistributes your weight evenly to stop any pressure points. Nice product for the price for sure.

My Mother loves this cushion for her wheelchair. It's a heavy gel filled cushion. We did have to flip it over because one side had her slipping forward...not good. But the other side has a texture so it works perfectly!
