Positioning and pressure care management is a vital part of supporting those using wheelchairs. That’s why, at Medoris Care, we offer a wide range of products to help prevent pain, relieve pressure and increase comfort.
Unlike other pillows that dip in the middle or feel too solid over time, our pressure relief Wheelchair Seat Cushion is a 9-chamber support pillow, filled with microbeads. As fine as sand, these beads mould to the body and are extremely useful for stabilising position, especially when muscles are weak.
Lightweight and soft, the small microbeads shift and redistribute, perfectly contouring the user and providing the ideal postural support, while the nine chambers evenly distribute weight for maximum comfort. They also help prevent restricted blood flow that comes from the skin being squashed between bone and a hard surface. A huge benefit for those sitting for long periods of time.
What’s more, they reduce friction, particularly important for those prone to pressure sores.
Compared to memory foam, microbeads don’t absorb moisture, sweat or fluid, so they inhibit the growth of dust mites, bacteria and fungus. A plus for allergy sufferers.
They don’t hold the body’s heat which can lead to discomfort. Instead the beads allow for an even airflow throughout the whole pillow, resulting in a much cooler, more pleasurable experience.
Made with small polystyrene beads, this support pillow won’t compact, wear out or lose its shape and can withstand being machine washed and tumbled dried for cleanliness and hygiene.
With so many qualities and benefits, we hope that this positioning and pressure care Wheelchair Seat Cushion helps turn every day into a more comfortable day.
