Silicone is a material that is somewhere between liquid and solid. It has the characteristics of transparency, durability, heat resistance, and PH resistance. It also has a better stability effect than that of liquid. It can provide better pressure relief and more flexibility than a solid, with a longer lifespan.That's why it is broadly used in all kinds of applications.

In support application, it provides the same level of extra pressure and corresponding support as a layer of foam. One of the benefits of silicone is that for most users there is no skin sensitivity or discomfort. And because of its similarity to liquid, silicone pad can provide a massaging effect to the part of the body under pressure, that can promote sport performance and shorten the period of recovery.
