Wheelchairs, Cushions and Pressure sores
A wheelchair is only as good as the cushion being used. The wheelchair cushion is the component of a wheelchair that has a direct impact on pressure sore prevention. The wrong cushion can actually contribute to pressure sores so it is important to carefully consider your needs, physical limitations and risk levels when selecting a cushion.
Alternating Wheelchair Cushion Technology Makes Sense
Consider the medical protocol after a flap surgery. Medical professionals recommend and sometimes require an alternating mattress be used by the patient to prevent relapse. An alternating mattress interrupts the constant pressure to the body and stimulates circulation which is what is needed to avoid pressure sores. Doesn’t it make sense to continue medically prescribed therapy while using your wheelchair?
If you use a motionless static wheelchair cushion at home, with every passing minute your body weight is pressing down on your pelvic bones compressing the tissue beneath. The exact cause of pressure sores. This is true for any static cushion be it foam, air or gel. The circulation is cut off and cells begin to die and the result is pressure sores. That’s why with static wheelchair cushions medical professionals recommend pressure lifts or heavy leaning side to side every 20 minutes in an effort to relieve pressure and avoid pressure sores. That work is not necessary with our wheelchair cushions.
Aquila alternating wheelchair cushions are much smarter and an infinitely easier method to ensure pressure relief 60 times per hour. Our wheelchair cushions work all day long on your behalf replacing wheelchair push-ups and leaning.
