Wheelchair Cushions

A Wheelchair cushion’s just a cushion right? Wrong. The technology and research that goes into wheelchair cushion design is staggering. And for good reason. Whilst your wheelchair does the heavy lifting so to speak, it’s the cushion that ensures that support is spread equally throughout the seat resulting in comfort and security. According to Wheelchair cushion engineers (Yes, there are such people), there are seven factors that determine comfort and clinical safety
1: Distribution of stresses on soft tissue. 2: Stability. 3: Frictional properties of the cushion and cover. 4: Moisture accumulation. 5: Heat lost. 6: Durability and requirement for maintenance. 7: Flammability. Choosing the right cushion for you, within budget can be a difficult matter. If you know what you want, go right ahead and buy the one for you.
