Like positioning cushions, air & skin protection cushions can help the user avoid pain and/or discomfort associated with long periods of sitting. This class of cushion, however, is primarily concerned with skin breakdown, or, pressure sores. When wheelchair users are unable to change position regularly, blood flow to certain areas may be limited, or cut off entirely. When this occurs, the skin and underlying muscles can deteriorate or die, leaving behind a painful, irritated areas. Fortunately, our air & skin protection cushions can help. Products in this category are often contoured and are typically made from materials (e.g. air, gel, foam, fluid, etc.) that can effectively distribute pressure.
