The support and relief of wheelchair cushions can help you stay comfortable throughout the day as well as prevent pressure ulcers. You can choose a material, whether you prefer a more firm memory foam cushion or a gel foam cushion. There are also wheelchair cushions for different seat sizes. Brands such as Hudson Medical, Drive Medical and Essential Medical Supply feature various types of cushions to help you stay comfortable and ulcer-free.
Benefits of cushioning support
Wheelchair cushions are available in different thicknesses, from one inch to four inches. Some also have layers of different materials to help give you both support and softness. Bariatric wheelchair cushions can offer extra support over a wider seat area. You can even find coccyx cushions that have a cutout for your tailbone to prevent unnecessary pressure or pain.
