Wheelchair Cushions for Preventing Pressure Sores
Therapeutic wheelchair seat cushions and various wheelchair pads are featured here in numerous types and designs. A portable pressure relieving seat cushion may be made using air, gel or foam technologies, and here you'll find all three. Medical sitting cushions for wheelchairs are indispensable to those requiring them, and individuals not taking advantage of their various benefits are likely suffering needlessly.
Spend a little time going through the three sections of this category on foam, gel and air cushions to get a feel for how each performs. Whether the concern is positioning, balance, comfort or a pressure management function, we've got an easy-to-use, affordable solution. Some cushions are a combination of types such as the JAY Fusion Cushion
that uses both gel and sculpted foam for superior pressure relief and skin protection.
In addition to comfort, a cushion surface must also assist in reducing the risk of tissue trauma. In the sitting position, the pelvis becomes the primary weight-bearing structure. There are many bony prominences on the surface of the pelvis; thus, there is an inherent risk of skin breakdown.
