VIP is different because our raw material is so unique. It is called VEteq©. It is usually found in the human medical industry and is effective as a skin fat substitute that it is used to protect skin during radiotherapy, spaceship harnesses, by the military in gun recoil pads and body armour, stunt clothing and even in American football helmets to prevent concussion.
Technically ‘The VIP’ is not a gel but a viscoelastic polymer, this essentially means it is not rubber based. Foams, shim style pads, memory foams are. Foams compress and once compressed have a high rebound factor and when they rebound they do not absorb shock. Rubber based foams may feel squishy and soft when new but once compressed that is it. The VIP has an extremely high tensile strength.
