Some people may need reduced pressure on the coccyx area when sitting. These cushions are scooped out at the rear, so when sitting there will be less pressure on the coccyx.
How it works
The front of the cushion is sloped downward to help prevent pressure under the legs.
The under sides of the cushion are sloped so when used in a wheelchair the cushion will sit flatter, though the cushion can also be used on lounge chairs.
The four corner ties help hold the cushion in position if the patient shuffles onto or off the chair.
The cushions have memory foam on the top with firm resilient lower foam underneath.
Three material covers and two sizes available.

Three types of covers are availablePolyester – 4 Way Stretch Cover
This four way stretch material has been designed to wick moisture away from the body and is used in some sports clothing to help prevent perspiration build up. It also has an anti-bacterial finish. Cleaning: Hand or machine wash up to 80°C. Air dry or cool tumble dry only.
Waterproof with Sewn Seams – 4 Way Stretch Cover
This four way stretch material is also designed to prevent perspiration build up, but is waterproof for incontinent patients. The waterproof material has been sewn together so the actual seams and the covered zip may allow water penetration. The material is fire retardant with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities.
Heat Sealed – 4 Way Stretch Cover
This is the same four way stretch material as the Waterproof Cover. It has been completely Heat Sealed to help prevent cross infection when the cushion may be used by different patients in a general hospital. There are no sewn seams or openings for zips, Hook & Loop Tape fasteners. Our air transfer (Patent applied for) ‘Air-Tube’ will allow the air in the cushion to transfer to a reservoir when the patient sits down. After the patient has stood up, the air in the reservoir will return to the cushion. If the air cannot move, the heat sealed cover will act like a balloon. This will be uncomfortable and unstable and may even burst at the seams.
The Heat Sealed cover is faster to wipe clean compared to removing and fitting a normal sewn cover for machine washing.
