BEST Wheelchair Pressure Reduction.
The Cushion-It out-performs all corresponding sheepskin products. They are usually used for the seat and the back of a chair. This very successful product can improve the comfort of any chair, whether it is an office chair, arm chair, a canvas wheelchair seat, or in combination with a pressure care cushion. The Cushion-It features Velcro fastening straps that can be fastened underneath existing seating materials if so desired. Some people prefer to have their Cushion-It loose so that it can be easily moved to different chairs or car. The Cushion-It provides an ideal seating environment, allowing air to circulate while dispersing pressure and shear forces.
Size: 18" x 22"
The Pressure Smart XD1900 Wheelchair Cushion-It is the latest wheelchair innovation for Pressure Sore Prevention. The extremely dense wool-pile (1900grams of wool /square meter of surface) offers pressure reduction like no other wool surface. Shear Comfort ceased manufacturing the HiTemp UR Medical Sheepskin version of the Cushion-It because it was determined that Pressure Smart XD1900 surface gave better Pressure Reduction- see pressure maps below.
Pressure maps show the effectiveness of XD Cushion-Its:
The Pressure Smart XD Cushion-It has remarkable moisture absorption ability. The wool can absorb up to 33% of its own weight without feeling wet..unlike synthetic fibres that absorb up to 1%. This one feature solves a major problem for many people in a wheelchair..synthetic cushions make you sweat.
Use one Cushion-It on the seat and the other on the back of the chair. Cushion-Its are held in place by nylon straps with velcro attachments.
