Every person has a different posture in a wheelchair or on a mattress. To avoid pressure injuries it is important to pay attention to your posture. Our positioning cushions can help you with that. Without a good positioning cushion some users hunch over in their wheelchair, while others may slouch, inching their buttocks closer to the front edge. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, or dealing with a permanent disability, sitting with improper posture can cause new injuries or make the existing one worse.
