Pressure cushions are products which help minimise pain and discomfort that come from long periods of sitting or remaining in the same spot. They are normally made from air cells, gel, foam or fluid, which help distribute pressure evenly and reduce discomfort and the appearance of sores.

What is the best wheelchair cushion for pressure sores?

Our most popular cushions are made from dry floatation air cells or polymer gel. Both types of cushions facilitate blood circulation and spreads out the user’s weight evenly. However, as each individual’s need is different, it is always best to speak with your occupational therapist on which pressure cushion is right for you.

We offer products from a range of leading brands including Better Living, Equagel, Funke, Jay, Peak Care and much more.

Pressure Cushions

Pressure ulcers are the parts of the skin that have been significantly damaged due to friction or constant pressure resulting from mobility challenges and are commonly associated with older and overweight populations or people who are bound in bed or chair for a long time. Due to the state of pressure ulcers, they can be problematic to treat and, in other situations, cause severe complications and other health-related problems such as infection of the blood, bone, joints, cancer, and abscess.

Pressure care devices help in reducing the probability of developing pressure sores and enhancing the user’s comfort while lowering unnecessary stress on care providers. These pressure-relieving devices are designed to lower pressure and reduce any discomfort that a patient might feel in their daily lives.

Cushioned supports, for instance, electronic mattresses and riser recliners, can help in efficient pressure care management. Specialized mattresses and cushions can also offer the crucial support required to ease pressure and improve comfort levels. Orthopedic cushions and mattresses come in handy in providing the user with great levels of support for the head and the body, generally to ease an accumulated strain to the pressure points. These products are designed to allow air circulation that assists in preventing stiffness and suffocation to the surface. These kinds of pressure-relieving products enhance the comfort levels and the user’s quality of sleep.

Pressure relief wheelchair sets are essential for people who are confined in wheelchairs and are vulnerable to pressure sores. They help in molding around the body and equally distribute pressure to avoid severe pressure to a specific part of the body. On the other hand, pressure area care devices can include fleece accessories. Accessories like elbow pads have been designed to act as an additional pressure relief for people who require it. Fleece offers a gentle interface that might be missing from many natural surfaces. They provide significant comfort to the bony areas of the body that are vulnerable to relieve tension and make sure great levels of comfort.
