Anti-decubitus cushion


Lewis Seating Systems delivers anti-decubtius wheelchair cushions for a maximum sitting quality, with which decubitus can be prevented. 

Sitting for a long period of time without moving is also an originator of pain in the seat area.
An anti-decubitus cushion can reduce this pain. If the pain can't be felt or if the body is not capable of shifting its position, body tissue damage can arise. The ischial tuberosities and the coccyx (tailbone) are sensitive places for this phenomenon. When no intervention is done, small wounds will develop here, also known as decubitus. 

The Lewis anti-decubitus cushion

An anti-decubitus cushion is trying to prevent pain and small wounds due to sitting. Most anti-decubitus cushions do this by applying an even pressure distribution on the whole surface.
When no special measures are taken while mounting the wheelchair, an anti-decubitus cushion doesn't solve the problem of friction in the seat area. Also on an anti-decubitus cushion the upper legs slowly slide forwards. That's why friction on the skin arises and the user will slump downwards.

The Lewis anti-decubitus cushion is functioning differently than all other anti-decubitus cushions on the market. First of all a correct posture angle is created. That's where the friction problem is being solved and where a pressure distribution is being generated that transfers the sitting pressure on the pelvis to the upper legs. In this way the ischial tuberosities and the coccyx (tailbone) are being burdened as a result of which problems as decubitus will arise.
