Gelco Products has supported the educational efforts of our community, as well as providing educational material to the health and wellness community. Even though libraries are being passed by in favor of efficient search engines, the local library is a regular stop in our community.
When we noticed the security guard was sitting on a chair more antiquated than the dewey decimal system, we quickly offered to improve his comfort by providing him with an ULTRA.
As we go Back To School, don’t forget the important role comfort plays in maintaining an effective learning environment.
Phoenix, AZ – July 25, 2016 – Objectified
Henry Ford said you can buy a Model T, in any color, as long as it is black. That is quite a mandate, but it was backed up by a lead in design. Not just product design, but manufacturing design. Ford is credited with creating previously unrealized economies of scale, by designing the production of his Model T, with assembly lines. This simple maneuver, enabled Ford to create a car that was available for mass consumption, as long as consumers liked black.
Simple innovations expressed in equally simple designs, continue to improve lives and product engagement. It is amazing to look around at how our lives are affected by product design intended to create engagement with users. Then, equally amazing, is to look out over a production plant, at how these products go from drawing board to your hands.
If you have a minute and cannot find something to binge on Netflix or Hulu, I suggest checking out OBJECTIFIED, by Gary Hustwit. It is an engaging documentary that looks at product design and those credited with being leaders in it.
Anthem, AZ – July 14, 2016- Gelco Company takes a healthy approach
At Gelco Products, we have made treating pain and discomfort holistically, a principle of our business effort.
Several years ago, we began to hear rumblings of the “new trend” in dieting, going KETO. To call going KETO a diet is doing it a dis-service. KETO is rather a lifestyle, because the proliferation of food additives, primarily wheat and sugar, that have caused obesity and presence of diabetes to sky rocket in the West are so interwoven in our lives; that eliminating them requires a lifestyle change.
Reading labels on everything your consume, you will soon see how many of your daily foods contain these toxic element (yes, they are killing you) and that is why I consider it not to be a diet, but a change in the way you live. WE are what we EAT.
KETO to replace Dialysis? Yes, that is how effective a change in what we eat can be a change in how we live.
I often get the question, “If food is so bad, why do we live longer?” Medical Technology keeps us around, but if you develop Alzheimers, what does it matter? Eliminate the ingredients that make you sick and you can enjoy your life, as you live longer.

Moline, IL – June 26, 2016 – GSeat Ultra rides along with Iowa80
Being from the Quad Cities I grew up driving by the Iowa80 truck stop in Walcott, Iowa, on my way to Hawkeye games. Sometimes, we would stop at the annual Trucker Jamboree in July at the Iowa80 truck stop to see the badass classic trucks.
When I read about Iowa80 entering a 38 Kenworth in The Great Race, Gelco Products quickly offered up two GSeat Ultras for the driver and navigator to help out a home town icon… To learn more about the Great Race check out www.greatrace.com.
As for the contribution of the GSeat ULTRA, Driver Dave Meier said, “The GSeat ULTRA made a long cross-country trip much more comfortable than it was in the past.” Adding,”With the heat and noise from our 38 Kenworth, it was nice to have the additional comfort of the GSeat ULTRA.”
Dave, we were happy to help. See you next year! Jason Langston, COO
Phoenix, AZ – June 17, 2016 – Truckers and Heavy Equipment Operators
Even heavy equipment operators need to be conscious of proper posture support to prevent injury. Whether you’re sitting at an office or driving a truck, a GSeat Ultra can help you sit more comfortably by reducing the impact of the environment on your body.
Below is a great video that our President, Jason Langston, shot with Gordy Perrigo, a heavy equipment operator. Gordy doesn’t drive anywhere without his GSeat Ultra.
Phoenix, AZ – May 29, 2016 – Supporting our Veterans and Active Duty
Gelco Products is proud to be a US company, with a history of supporting our Veterans and Active Duty.
When Staff Sergeant Jeromee Todd Kessler was planning to retire from the Army in 2011 due to an injury, Gelco quickly offered him a job in sales. Staff Sgt. Kessler was a successful recruiter as well as GSeat ULTRA user, as he spent many hours in his car and at his desk.
Staff Sgt. Kessler served in the 101st Airborne, 82nd Airborne and 10th Mountain Division. He was recognized by the Army for developing a means for towing an M1126 STRYKER Vehicle. Staff Sgt. Kessler also served with valor during three tours in the remote regions of the Panjshir Valley, in Afghanistan and Iraq during Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
Staff Sgt. Kessler is now a licensed Financial Planner with Country Financial, where he still serves the people around him.
It is our honor to take a moment and recognize Staff Sgt. Kessler and all veterans who have bravely served in the Armed Forces, this Memorial Day 2016.

What is a GSeat? A GSeat is an orthopedic memory foam and gel seat cushion that provides you the most comfortable place to sit, no matter where you are. The cushion has a five-degree forward slope that enables optimal lumbar curvature for ideal posture. The memory foam base gives support and the gel layer over the top disperses pressure in all of the places you need it most.
The GSeat is based on split rail bike seat technology, our patented integrated handle creates a center relieved groove which completely eliminates all soft tissue pressure and suspends the tailbone. The patented “hassle free” handle lets you take your comfort with you wherever you go.
The GSeat provides comfort, support, and relieves pressure on the tailbone (coccyx) and promotes proper posture; alleviating pain from Sciatica, tailbone injuries, hip pain, hemorrhoids, and much more.
