Wheelchair cushions are essential for posture support to reduce pressure.

Seating Cushions

Stroke survivors should use a pressure-relieving cushion with their wheelchair. It is important that a stroke survivor be assessed by a health care professional for the appropriate cushion in order to provide the right type and amount of support. Using the wheelchair cushion that has been assessed specifically for their needs will hopefully prevent future problems with joint and muscle pain and pressure ulcers.

People with paralysis after a stroke have a high risk for pressure sores and therefore usually require special cushions and seating systems to give their skin some relief. There are three basic kinds of cushion materials, each with benefits for certain types of users: air, foam or liquid (such as water, gel, silicone). Work with a health care provider seating specialist to determine which is the right one.
