Those with limited mobility, or those who spend most of their time seated, such as in an office chair, can be at risk of discomfort, or of developing pressure ulcers - these individuals can't or don't move frequently enough to relieve pressure or to allow air exchange. Our protectors are ideal for improving the well-being of these individuals. For those in wheelchairs, we also have 'protectors' for areas of the wheelchair that can often cause abrasion or areas of higher pressure. Sheer Comfort Cushion can be used for either or both the seat or back of a chair. Our Cushion is a very successful product that can improve the comfort of any chair, whether it be an office chair, arm chair, a canvas wheelchair seat, or in combination with a pressure care cushion. Cushion features Velcro fastening straps that can be fastened underneath existing seating materials if so-desired – others prefer to have their cushion loose so that they can transfer it easily between different chairs. Cushion provides an ideal seating environment, allowing air to circulate while dispersing pressure and shear forces. A well-positioned arm support can promote good posture and reduce pressure elsewhere on the body. Without sufficient padding this can lead to discomfort or damage to the forearm. Our Arm Support Protectors offer a simple solution to this – they are easily slipped over the arm support of an office chair, wheelchair, etc. Foot Plate and Calf Plate Protectors- These items fit easily over a wheelchair’s foot or calf plates to bring comfort and protection to otherwise rather unforgiving parts of the wheelchair. Tears and bruising as a result of bumps and scratches caused by the foot and calf plates are not uncommon, and can easily be prevented with the simple addition of our quality wool-based protectors.
