A perfect pressure care cushion for general daily use, this multi-purpose product is best suited to people at lower risk of pressure injury, with a mild need for postural support. The Pressure Relief Cushion is made from two layers of specialised foam for added comfort and improved pressure redistribution capabilities. This means that pressure is more evenly dispersed over your seated skin's surface when you are seated, rather than being focused in certain pressure points that can lead to pressure injury.
With a high density foam support base for extra stability, and a super soft memory foam top layer for optimum comfort on any chair, this cushion can be used throughout the day to minimise risk of pressure damage to the vulnerable buttocks and thigh region.
The cushion includes a two-way stretch, incontinence proof cover for enhanced anti-shear and anti-friction benefits. Shear and friction are two factors that contribute to the risk of pressure injury forces that come into play when someone has limited mobility. Friction is caused when the skin is dragged across a surface. Shear is caused when two forces move in opposing directions such as skin and bone moving in parallel causing the deformation of tissue. Both factors usually work together, especially in the case of someone who is seated on a cushion for long periods, and constantly dragging themselves back up and onto the seat. The stretch design of this fabric helps to prevent these forces from occurring.
The seams on the cover are stitched to make them extra strong, then heat welded over the top of the stitching for maximum infection control. This helps stop the build up of bacteria in the seams and stops moisture from getting through. The cover has a rear zipper for easy removal and cleaning, with a waterfall skirt flap that covers the zip to stop moisture of fluids from seeping through into the cushion.
This square cushion measures 410 mm wide by 410 mm deep, with a height of 75 mm. The maximum user weight is 110 kilograms.
