Factors to Consider
There are many things to consider when selecting pressure care products including nutrition, skin moisture, level of mobility, age, shear, friction, location of pressure ulcer (if present) and hygiene. Any comments regarding level of pressure care is a suggestion made by suppliers as a guide to assist with selection, and this may differ from brand to brand. When selecting pressure care products it is strongly advised that a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a health professional to encourage correct product selection and monitoring of product effectiveness.
The pressure reducing effectiveness of this cushion may be affected if the user does not sit in a symmetrical position.
The cover has a slip resistant base to reduce movement of the cushion during transfers and while changing position in the wheelchair.
