After my accident I needed to get a wheelchair cushion and I had no idea where to start. There were many options out there and while they seemed different, it was very hard for me to tell one wheelchair cushion from another. A wheelchair seat cushion is an important purchase that you should always go through with you Doctor, so while I may have a favorite wheelchair cushion you should consult with them to make sure that the cushion is appropriate for your current condition and situation. There are many different applications where certain wheelchair cushions would not be appropriate. Your Doctor is the best person to advise you in this situation.
Basics Of A Wheelchair Cushion
Wheelchair cushions come in a variety of styles and kinds, but each has a specific purpose and is designed for a specific purpose. For me I have found that the wheelchair cushions from the ROHO Group provide all the versatility and comfort I need. Their cushions conform to each user’s individual body shape and will continuously self adjust with movement to enhance blood flow and support your posture. They offer many distinct kinds of wheelchair cushions each with a specific purpose. They even can build custom cushions for those with exacting needs.
The wheelchair cushion I currently use from ROHO is the MOSIAC cushion. This cushion’s is designed for users who only need a basic level of skin protection, support and comfort. The MOSIAC, like all of the ROHO cushions, uses air floatation technology to allow the interconnected air cells to distribute the forces evenly across the surface of the seat.
I also looked at and may end up switching to the SPIRIT cushion. This cushion is unlike anything I have ever seen; it combines a foam cushion with the air technology. The contoured foam base is designed to allow increased stability for transfers and provide exceptional positioning of the pelvis and lower extremities for enhance sitting posture. This is then combined with the ROHO Groups dry flotation technology to provide the ultimate in skin protection in the ischia, sacrum, and coccyx area. This critical placement and construction lead me to consider this if I ever decide to replace my MOSIAC cushion.
Those are only two of the many cushions from ROHO that are designed to help people like you or your loved ones to not only be as comfortable as possible, but also to have the medical support they require to heal properly to get back to leading a normal life. If you have not looked at ROHO cushions then I can not recommend doing so enough.
