Standard Airtube Cushion 16"x16"
Standard Airtube Cushion helps to prevent pressure ulcers.
Pressure ulcers, also known as decubitus ulcers or bedsores, are localized injuries to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur over a bony prominence as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction. The most common sites are the sacrum, coccyx, heels or thehips, but other sites such as the elbows, knees, ankles or the back of the cranium can be affected.
Wheelchair users sit for much longer periods of time than other people. The pressure sore can become a big issue. Our Airtube cushion allows you to sit all day without feeling sore. It has individual air tubes to evenly support your body, spread out pressures, effectively relieving any soreness and massaging you as you move. Each individual air tube provides a small contact point, which greatly decreases the chance of developing pressure sores. So If you are required to use a wheelchair, or you sit for long periods of time, the Airtube cushion is definitely something that you should consider buying.
Decubitus ulcers can become a long term serious problem, and often are very difficult to recover from. Our Airtube cushion can help you in preventing these ulcers from occurring. Although there are similar products on the market, our Airtube cushion is made with superior quality material and is still offered at a competitive price.
