Our Story

Cathleen Woodall and Jason Langston – Founders – Gelco Products, Inc.

 I had spent long hours writing research reports for clients in the Telecom Industry and had always searched, to no avail, for a comfortable seat cushion for my office chair. There was a wide selection of gel seat cushions for wheelchairs, but nothing that people could really afford. The office based ergonomic movement was in full force, gel wrist rests and mouse pads were popular and affordable, so I decided it would be a good idea to make an affordable gel seat cushion.

I collaborated with BMW Group Designworks USA (http://www.designworksusa.com) and a bike seat manufacturer and the first GSeat prototype was created in late 2000.  My dynamic partner Jason Langston designed the handle after working with the first prototype and our patent on the integrated handle and foldable design was awarded on January 5, 2005 (Utility patent 6,839,928).

We started Gelco Products in our garage and sold GSeats at Corporate Health Fairs until we landed our first catalog customer…once we made it into our first nationwide catalog, it was much easier to get our message out.

Now, almost 15 years later, we are sold all over the world and have just been awarded the SkyMall Reader’s Choice Top Ten Award for best road trip accessories.  We are proud to say that we are 100% made in the USA.

Mission and Vision

Our primary mission is to make people more comfortable wherever they sit, whether its at the office, your kid’s ballgame, cheer event, car or traveling.  Its also great to have at home!  If you have to sit for any length of time, the GSeat makes it better!

We strive to create the highest quality and most comfortable seat cushion in the market; our less than 1% return rate reflects our success in that endeavor. In addition to high quality products we aim to provide excellent customer service. Just call us anytime at: 866-454-3256 or send us an email at: info@gelcoproducts.com.

Gelco Products uses a visco-elastic gel that disperses pressure at the point of contact. The gel maintains its shape better than foam products and because the gel never “bottoms out” and less material is needed to achieve a high degree of comfort. By incorporating functional design with quality materials, Gelco Products creates comfort-enhancing products that reduce pressure and increase comfort. ×
The slight forward slope helps you sit with good posture and helps to keep your low back in a natural and healthy alignment. This natural alignment helps to avoid back pain and fatigue. ×
The center relieved groove is inspired by the “split rail” bike seat design and is meant to relieve all pressure on soft tissues and the tailbone. ×
The patented, integrated “hassle free” handle makes it easy to take your GSeat anywhere you go. Better Posture, More Comfort…anywhere anytime ×
