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.

Method of Use
Ensure that the cushion pump is situated directly underneath the diagram on the cushion cover.
Using hand pressure only, press down on the pump several times to inflate the cells.
Stop pressing when the cells no longer inflate.
Sit on the cushion. The diagram and pump should be to the front of the chair.
Press the end of the attached valve until no further air is released.
Let go of the valve.
The number on the valve has no significance.
The cushion is now inflated to the appropriate level for the user.
The amount of inflation will vary according to the weight of the user.
As a precaution, the cushion should be checked for the appropriate level of inflation on a regular basis.
