Wheelchair & Powerchair Cushions and Backrests

How do our cushions and backrests work?

There are various types of static cushions and backrests for wheelchair and powerchair users.

A seat cushion is used to reduce the risk of pressure sore formation on the posterior. Cushion works by providing an even weight distribution and conforms to the shape of your body.

They also protect the bony areas of your body. A variety of cushions which are graded by pressure sore risk factors and back support are available to choose from and allow users in wheelchairs and powerchairs to be comfortable, supported, allowing movement and functionality.

What are pressure injuries & ulcers?

Pressure ulcers are also known as pressure sores, pressure injuries or bed sores.

They are an injury that affects areas of the skin and underlying tissue. They are caused when the affected area of the skin is placed under too much pressure which restricts blood flow to the tissue.

Skin can also become damaged by repeated friction of the skin rubbing against another surface, which is called shear.

If care isn’t taken to protect the skin, then pressure injuries can become really dangerous! The wounds can be large, painful and take a considerable amount of time to heal, they also can become easily infected.

The use of an appropriate cushion & backrest can help lower the risk of pressure injuries occurring
