Our wheelchair cushions are a necessity when it comes to support and comfort. People that are wheelchair bound may struggle with skin break down. After sitting for a long length of time skin will develop sores and often times become infected, especially the elderly who may have thinner sensitive skin. A wheel chair cushion is a great preventative. A cushion helps ease the stress placed on your spine and it helps distribute body weight more efficiently. The cumulus filling in our cushions allow proper air flow and do not absorb water. This can help with perspiration and moisture.
Consider the following when selecting a cushion for your wheelchair. The cushion needs to be the correct width, depth, and height to insure that your weight is distributed properly in the seat. This adds to your stability while in the chair. The support provided by a proper wheel chair cushion can reduce fatigue and improve balance, muscle tone and posture. When you're ordering a cushion for a wheelchair, please keep in mind that the thickness of the cushion will make you higher. Make sure your cushion will still allow for clearance to get under your table.
