Wheelchair cushions are designed to provide extra support and protection for regular wheelchair users. The Designer Ergoform Wheelchair Cushion from Harley is designed for users who find themselves in the High Risk category: namely those who are sat in the same position on a daily basis for significant lengths of time. The lack of movement and subsequent restrictions mean that these people are at an increased risk of developing pressure sores or other complaints associated with periods of immobility.
Moulded from visco elastic memory foam for increased postural control and optimum comfort, the pressure relieving visco elastic foam insert protects the ischial tuberosity – commonly referred to as the sitting bones – for complete pressure relief and long-term comfort.
This revolutionary range offers four distinct areas of protection and support:
• The lateral and posterior sides are slightly higher to stabilise the pelvis in position.
• Pommel is designed to improve patient positioning and increase comfort.
• Shaped thigh area allows air to circulate and reduces pressure
• The rear recess is designed to increase patient care options by use of the appropriate insert protecting the ischial tuberosity and promoting optimal weight distribution.
Supplied with Harley premium multi-stretch waterproof / VP cover as standard, though other options are available.
For any patient it is important they seek the correct professional medical advice when choosing the appropriate level of support to ensure it fully meets their needs and requirements.
