Foam thickness::Foam thickness: The foam on your therapy table is important for two reasons. Firstly, the client's level of comfort is naturally very important. Secondly, the long term wear and appearance of your table is affected by the density of the foam. The higher the density, the greater the substance between the air pockets of the foam. Over time a higher density foam will not sag or flatten creating a longer life for your massage table. Cheap massage tables such as those found on eBay these days tend to have thin low density foam.
Upholstery::Upholstery: The upholstery on your massage table is usually made of either PU leather or PVC leather. I have seen certain websites advertise "ecological" PU leather and "PU leather, oil and water resistant" both of which is utter silly and is very misleading. How can something be ecological if it is mass produced in a factory? Here is an explanation of the two, it is really very simple: PVC Vinyl leather is generally the norm and is synthetic leather. It is similar to what you would find on many imitation leather couches and sofas. It is strong, durable and oil and water proof. It can be wiped clean very easily. PU Leather is as close as possible to leather that you can get synthetically. It is very soft and feels very nice against the bare skin and is also very strong. But it is not oil and water resistant like some websites may lead you to believe.
