Why Buy a Wheelchair Cushion?
Using a wheelchair is often more complicated than people would assume. It comes with a variety of unique challenges and surprises. Unfortunately, wheelchairs are often not made to keep people comfortable and healthy.
Many wheelchair users are plagued with pain, pressure sores, and infections due to unsuitable wheelchair cushions. Finding the right cushion for a wheelchair is a key to living a happy life.
Keep scrolling to learn what qualities to look for in a wheelchair cushion and how the perfect cushion can aid in creating your perfect life.
Wheelchair Seat Problems
If you're a short-term or lifelong wheelchair user, you've likely noticed some inherent flaws with your chair.
Perhaps some of these seem familiar:
- Pressure sores. These are extremely common issues for those in wheelchairs. Pressure sores have the ability to become infected and may cause problems that last for years.
- Posture. Some people may have a difficult time staying upright in their chairs. Standard wheelchair seats are prone to being slippery. Without critical friction, it may be a struggle to readjust your alignment by yourself.
- Temperature issues. Whether or not you live in a hot climate, your seat may become hot and moist as your day progresses. Often, this makes your chair uncomfortable and fosters the perfect breeding ground for infection.
One of the most important aspects of a good wheelchair seat cushion is its ability to redistribute pressure as you sit. In a standard wheelchair seat, most of your body weight centers around your hips, tailbone, and specific locations along your thighs. These high-pressure zones can start to have problems over time. Some common issues include pressure sores, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
The right wheelchair cushion can create healthy weight distribution. Healthy weight distribution is critical to keeping one point from receiving too much pressure. Additionally, this process reduces the likelihood of developing pressure sores. Those who have osteoporosis and arthritis, for example, are much more comfortable with these cushions since their hips and coccyx aren’t receiving as much pressure.
Prevent and Control Infections
Pressure sores are often tricky to treat, so prevention is definitely the name of the game. By adding a good wheelchair cushion to your daily routine, you can ward off infections before they appear. This can circumvent the need to fight long, painful battles to combat infections.
If you do already have pressure sore infections, a good memory foam seat cushion can help you regulate, minimize, and control the sores. It’s incredibly difficult to heal when your wound experiences the constant pressure that created them, to begin with.
With the redistribution of weight, you allow those wounds a necessary space to heal. Thereby, you can reduce the amount of time you have to spend in bed or fighting infections.
One of the uncomfortable aspects of wheelchair seats is their ability to overheat, especially if they don't have proper ventilation. This can make you incredibly uncomfortable, especially if you are trying to heal from pressure sores. Even keeping your home and environment cooler may not be adequate to cool down, particularly if the heat originates in your chair.
Wheelchair seat cushions offer the cooling comfort you require all throughout the day. The best quality wheelchair cushions are infused with gel. Gel has the extraordinary ability to assist with moving heat away from your body to keep you cool. Other cushions are made with special ventilation holes to guarantee you plenty of airflow, preventing the chair from becoming overheated.
Another problem wheelchair users face is moisture control, even for those who don’t deal with incontinence. If you tend to overheat, your seat could begin sweating, which can create an uncomfortable moist environment.
With the constant threat (or presence) of pressure sore infections, the last thing you want is to create a warm, damp environment.
A cooler seat helps to decrease the amount you sweat, which keeps your seat drier. Those ventilation holes we mentioned earlier also promote adequate airflow, wicking existing moisture away. And if you do live with incontinence, you can buy cushions with special covers that are moisture-resistant and machine washable for an affordable price. Better options are out there!
Maintain Better Posture
Many wheelchair users struggle to maintain proper posture, which can cause a multitude of serious health problems. It’s all too easy to slide down in a standard wheelchair seat, and many people have trouble readjusting their posture without assistance. You may end up slouching in your chair, which places unnecessary stress and strain on your spine.
The ideal wheelchair cushion makes it easy to sit up straight in your chair all day long. The best cushions have no-slip bases that keep them in place and provide more than enough traction to keep you in place. These cushions are also shaped in an ergonomic way that keeps your hips situated correctly so you can maintain good posture all day long.
Getting the Right Fit
When you’re on the lookout for a new wheelchair cushion, it’s important to make sure you get one that fits just right, especially since there are often a variety of sizes. A cushion that’s too small can slide around your chair, not giving you the sort of support you need.
One that’s too large can squish and wrinkle in on the sides, placing even more pressure on your hips. This results in additional sites that are at risk for developing infections.
Generally, it’s a wise idea to look for a wheelchair cushion that measures 18” by 17” by at least 3”. This size will fit most standard wheelchairs: all support you need without the extra pressure spots that you don't. It will also fit well in most other seats you may move to throughout the day, so you can bring comfort with you no matter where you go.
What To Look For: The Best Value
There are a few additional things you want to look for in your wheelchair seat cushion.
- To start, you will definitely want to aim for a cushion that has a non-slip base. This stops your cushion from sliding around in your chair as you shift and move over the course of your day.
- You should also look for a cushion with a cover that’s simple to remove and easy to wash.
- Opt for one with ventilation to ensure you stay cool and dry as long as you're sitting there.
- Finally, make sure you get one that’s lightweight so that it’s easy to maneuver when you’re shifting in and out of your wheelchair.
In your shopping process, you will likely be presented with a variety of options for your wheelchair cushion's material.
Some cushions are inflatable and are filled with air so they can adjust to different pressure levels. However, these cushions require never-ending maintenance, are prone to leaking, and don't prove to be a very stable seating surface.
A promising amount of wheelchair cushions are made from either foam or gel. Foam cushions require minimal maintenance and provide a stable seating surface. Gel cushions are great for relieving pressure and have powerful cooling properties.
Is there a best of both worlds scenario here? Absolutely: the top of the line wheelchair cushions on the market are made with gel-infused memory foam.
What Is Memory Foam?
We’ve all heard of memory foam, but what is this material exactly? When you get specific, memory foam is actually dense polymer foam. This fascinating substance can be molded into a wide variety of shapes, suiting a wide variety of needs and preferences.
In the past, you may have heard it referred to as “viscoelastic foam.” This term is a fancy way to invoke memory foam’s most amazing quality...Memory foam has the remarkable ability to both flex under your weight (elastic) and hold its form without collapsing entirely (visco).
You won't need to release a pressure valve full of air to change memory foam's shape. This product is engineered to become softer as it absorbs body heat. This means that memory foam will give way under points of highest pressure while remaining sturdy and strong to support lower pressure areas.
Benefits of Memory Foam
There are multitudes of benefits to choosing a wheelchair cushion constructed from memory foam.
One of the most notable points, thanks to its softening capabilities, is that it can redistribute your weight, reducing pressure in sensitive areas. This reduction in pressure also serves to improve your circulation. This lowers your risk of developing deep vein thrombosis, a dangerous clotting disorder.
Because memory foam is so good at molding to your form, these pillows make it easier to sustain proper posture for as long as you need. When you sit in a typical, substandard wheelchair cushion, it's very easy for your hips to slide out of alignment.
This causes a strain on your lower back while pulling your upper spine and neck into odd angles, making you prone to injury. A memory foam cushion can keep your hips exactly where they’re supposed to be as the cushion maintains your spine’s natural curves.
Benefits of Gel Foam
Gel-infused memory foam adds extra layers of comfort to your everyday life. One of its unique features is that the gel is very cooling. It pulls heat away from your body and keeps you comfy. It can also provide a more stable base than your plain wheelchair seat, thanks to its fluid but strong nature.
One of our favorite aspects of this invention is that gel-infused memory foam is great at removing pressure from typical hotspots around your seat. The gel shifts naturally with your body’s changing movements, cradling you in an almost weightless cushion. It’s fluid enough to alleviate pressure while remaining solid enough to offer what you need.
Cleaning Memory Foam
A washable seat cover is basically an essential. It makes everyday cleaning simple and easy. However, you will need to give your seat cushion a good washing now and again.
To clean your memory foam cushion, fill a sink or tub with lukewarm (never hot or boiling) water, and add and stir in a little gentle laundry detergent. Dip a clean cloth in the water and gently spot clean any stains, marks, or dirty areas on your memory foam pillow.
After all the stains are gone, drain the water from your sink and fill it again, but this time, use cold, clear water. Use this clean water to rinse the soapy spots until the water that is running through your seat cushion is clear from muddled or soapy water. Then allow your cushion to dry for at least 24 hours on a flat, ventilated surface.
Lifespan of a Wheelchair Cushion
When we use items every day, it's natural for them to experience wear and tear. Even the highest-quality wheelchair cushion, when treated with the most amount of care and love, will eventually break down. When this happens, you ought to replace your wheelchair cushion. You can expect to need a replacement every two to three years.
However, at Everlasting Comfort, we offer a warranty with a lifetime replacement guarantee on our seat cushions. If anything ever happens to your cushion, let us know, and we will get you a free replacement as soon as possible. We want to make sure you always have a gel wheelchair cushion at your disposal.
