What is important when choosing seat cushion?

Having the right position in a wheelchair is one of the main factors needed both to remain healthy and also to age well with a disability. The 4 important factors of a good seating solutions are:

  • Positioning
  • Stability
  • Variation
  • Skin protection

Stability is imperative to maintain the right position. Loss of position increases the negative load on the body – the skin, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and other structures and reduces the quality of life. Variation is important to vary this load so health can be optimized. To ensure a comfortable long-time seating, the skin must be protected and temperature, moisture, gravity pressure, friction, shear forces thus need to be optimized.

Choose the solution that matches the user’s needs

Our seat cushion program is designed for long time seating and for many years we have been able to choose the correct solution for the individual user through the large assortment of sizes and designs. The Netti cushions complement many of the functions that we value highly in the development of our chairs such as multi-point pelvic stabilization, optimum freedom of movement and excellent pressure distribution. Originally designed and developed for the Netti chairs, but they have proven to be excellent cushions in the Meyra and TA wheelchairs as well.

The Ride Designs cushions are committed to creating and providing seating systems that enhance the user’s mobility, function and posture – all while protecting their skin better than anything they may have used in the past.
