Seat pillows are dense, thick cushions that soften the surface of a hard or unsupportive chair or wheelchair. Seat pillows mold to the user's body shape to reduce pain and discomfort. They are typically made of foam or fiber and are covered in a washable fabric. They are ideal for people who are non-ambulatory and have low to moderate risk of pressure sores.
ROHO cushions are made of flexible air cells which allow air to flow from one cell to another at a controlled rate, relieving pressure during use. Express Medical Supply has a wide selection of ROHO cushions for wheelchairs, toilet seats, and mattresses.
Another great choice when it comes to relieving pain from constant sitting is a foam seat cushion. We carry both flat and contoured foam seat pads from brands like Duro-Med and The Comfort Co.
Support cushions and lumbar back support pillows are key to remaining comfortable while sitting for extended periods of time. One of the simplest solutions to lower back pain is to use a lower back cushion.
Wheelchairs and motorized scooters for disabled people can cause frequent lower back pain. Pressure relief cushions can greatly reduce the discomfort associated with wheelchair use. Not using these cushions can lead to problems such as decubitis ulcers.
