Remember those blistering hot summer days when we open our cars and sit down on the burning seats, and we could almost hear the sizzling sound right under us? How about when in the bone chilling winter we sit in the ice cold seat shivering, starting the car and wishing the heat can just magically blow out of the vent? Obviously, heated and cooled car seats have been around for quite some time, but only available on luxury vehicles. A $50,000 or even a $60,000 sticker price is out of reach for most of us. Here at Viotek USA, we’re consumers ourselves. So we set out to develop that kind of luxury option at an EXTREMELY affordable price. The concept is rather simple— an add-on seat cushion with a heating and ventilated cooling function. In reality, this was easier said than done. The reason is rather simple, —at Viotek USA, we chase perfection. To create a seat cushion material thin enough to fit most auto seats perfectly, soft enough for hours of seated comfort, yet packing in an additional heating layer, cooling layer, and ventilating layer, an isolation layer, cushion layers, and leather layers was a total nightmare for us. After a few years of rigorous testing and design we’ve turned our simple idea into a simply amazing product.

Currently, we offer two models: Cooling Only as well as a Cooling and Heating model. Being that Viotek USA is located in the Midwest, it suits me best to use the Cooling and Heating Model to combat the bitterly cold winters. Currently there are many cars equipped with heated seats already, or you may just live in an area that does not need heated seats ever. So let me talk about the cooling feature first. A lot of people have had this experience: we dressed to the nines on a hot summer day to go to a party or possibly a job interview and by the time we get there, our perfectly ironed shirt or dress is now wrinkled and damp. Our perfectly pressed pants or skirt are now creased and moist. The time you spent perfecting your outfit is now lost and your look ruined. That totally defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? If you would’ve had the Viotek Cooling Seat this would’ve never happened. The heating function just like the heated seats you would find in vehicles today. That is because it utilizes same technology that car manufacturers use. That same technology has been around for quite some time so we felt that we could improve upon that design. We spent a fair amount of time looking into thermodynamic as well as aerodynamic weaving designs to produce the maximum efficiency whether you’re using the cooling or heating function. Ultimately what this means for you is that compared to more car models than not, our seat will not only generate noticeable heat quicker, but it can also achieve higher temperatures than most car models if so desired.

When you touch the synthetic leather surface, you will already be amazed by the fine craftsmanship in making. It is so soft yet supportive. Part of our rigorous testing was to compress the cushion with 600 pounds over 100,000 times to ensure the material we crafted could sustain a profuse amount of stress without compromising its cushioning, durability, comfort or functionality. If you pay attention to the seat surface, you will find those small dimples. Not only do they make the seat look so upscale, they are also certainly packed with technology. The honey comb design within the superstructure of the cushion maximizes the airflow through them. As soon as you sit on the cushion and turn on the ventilation mode, these dimples act like hundreds of tiny vacuums. They immediately start to pull hot air away from your body and evaporate away your sweat leaving you feeling quite comfortable. You’re probably thinking “This cushion seems to be packed with technology, but how comfortable is it?” Almost all seat cushions on the market not only cause you discomfort in your lower body and back, they blow air up, right into your skin. Imagine yourself literally on top of a fan; does the word comfort come to mind at all? Worst yet, since your body is pressed to the cushion, the air doesn’t really have anywhere to escape with your sweat — which is really what generates a cooling sensation. Our Viotek seat cushion is THE one and only product on the market that has a patented air extracting technology. So no matter if you just sweat a little or you have hyperhidrosis, our seat cushion continually draws away moisture keeping you in constant comfort. Now let me ask you this, can you put a dollar amount on all that comfort?

The small footprint control unit can control all aspects of the cushion. On the flip side of the unit is an adhesive backing that allows you to affix it to any location in your vehicle that provides you convenient control. The heated and cooled cushions come with two buttons, one red for heating, and one blue for cooling while the cooling only unit comes with one blue button. This seat cushion comes with 5 heating and/ or cooling stages. By default, when you first use this product or when you turn the car on, it will always start at level 3 (medium) of the function you last used. Changing the level is as easy as pressing the button of the function you wish to adjust. As you adjust the level a light bar will visually indicate what level the cushion is currently operating at. When the heating function is turned on, the top indicator lights will show red, and when the cooling function is on, the top indicator lights will show blue. To switch between the heating and cooling functions, you must first turn the currently used function off. For example, if it is currently on the heating function and you want to change to cooling, press and hold the heating button for three seconds to turn the unit off. Then press the cooling button to turn the cooling function on.
