Wheelchair cushion


The wheelchair cushions of Lewis Seating Systems help to prevent all kinds of sitting problems, like pain in back, neck, shoulders and bottom, compressed organs and pressure ulcers. 

The human body is not meant to sit for a long period of time, without having sitting problems. 
Especially wheelchair users are being confronted with this problem and therefore a cushion that provides comfort is very important. Wheelchairs often are designed as transport aid. On a mat stretched bewteen two tubes a wheelchair cushion is being placed, that often does not offer the desired comfort. If the standard wheelchair cushion, delivered by the wheelchair manufacturer does not satisfy, usually a special wheelchair cushion is applied. Examples are: a gel cushion, an air cushion, a cushion filled with water of a foam cushion. 

Wheelchair cushions for maximal sitting quality 

All of these principals applied in wheelchair cushions try to distribute the pressure on the bottom surface as equally as possible. After trying different wheelchair cushions all the time, often the one that causes the least problems is being chosen. 

Unique cushions for in the wheelchair

Sitting quality is among other things being determined by a correct posture and good pressure distribution. Correct posture provides no friction in the seat area. Except for the Lewis wheelchair cushion no other cushion on the market solves this problem. 

The pressure distribution is solved in the Lewis wheelchair cushion by moving the pressure from the pelvis to the upper leg, instead of generating equal pressure everywhere. That's why the sensitive parts as the coccyx (tailbone) and the ischial tuberosities are being unburdened. It's recommended to use the Lewis wheelchair cushion together with a Lewis back orthosis, thus supporting the upper body in a correct way.
