Gel cushions help cushion bony areas of the skin to help avoid skin breakdown and pressure sores. Used in wheelchairs or in any chair, gel cushions help keep skin safe even with prolonged sitting. The gel seat cushion is available from Comfort Co., Drive Medical, Graham-Field and Medline.
We also carry lower back cushions that offer support for prolonged sitting. The ROHO cushion and Duro-Med have varieties to help with back pain associated with sitting for prolonged periods of time in wheelchairs.
Foam cushions are also an option for wheelchair users or anyone seeking prevention of body and skin damage from prolonged periods of sitting. Foam cushions with back support, lumbar support and ring cushions can make sitting easier on the body.
