  • Acella-Flex foam is used for padding, and it is used in better upholstered furniture
  • Acella-Flex foam is the closest to a perfect seating configuration in the industry
  • Acella-Flex pushes back 1 lb. for every pound of weight exerted, making the chairs basically sit the same for a person of 90 lbs. or a person of 300 lbs.
  • Acella-Flex will keep 99.9% of its original shape and size, while most conventional foam will shrink 10-15% in size over the first couple of years
  • Special break-in process before the foam is ever cut makes the foam feel good from the first use forward
  • As an added benefit to the foam, Med-Lift glues a layer of super soft on top of the Acella-Flex, giving a very nice feel to the seat, but you still have the Acella-Flex base for strength and long life
  • Seat foam is pressure reducing


  • Seat springs are nine gauge Morley system no sag springs tied together with tie wire to make every spring work together as a seat unit
  • Five seat springs are correctly spaced on the spring rails by a special clip rail machine
  • Front seat rail on the frame is larger and thicker than competitors' products, which makes the seat much stronger and durable
  • Retainer rail secured by steel brads on top of the seat springs makes sure that they do not come loose
  • Back springs used are 12 gauges tied together with special tie wire for more comfort and endurance
  • Nova bond pad ensures that the seat springs do not cut into the bottom of the seat foam


  • Fiber used in the backs is a dustless, odorless, non-allergenic conjugated fiber, the best found in the industry
  • Backs retain their original shape and give greater comfort
  • Extra padding is used to ensure that no fabric comes in direct contact with wood
  • Wood frame that might come in contact with fabric is surrounded by an extra layer of foam or micro foam to ensure longer fabric life
  • Extra padding makes the arms, backs, front arm, etc. feel softer and plusher
  • Additional foam on the front arm surface.
