Frequently Asked Questions
What are wheelchair cushions?

Cushions designed to increase comfort and support for wheelchair users.

These items are among the most popular wheelchair accessories.

Who uses wheelchair cushions?

Anyone who uses a wheelchair may benefit from using a cushion.

They are however, usually most useful for those routinely using a wheelchair and who find the seat less comfortable without one.

What are the different types of wheelchair cushion?

Foam wheelchair cushions - these are the most inexpensive options and many use layers of foam to achieve the best padding and support.

Layered combinations of foam are designed to give support without losing stability.

Memory foam is often used because of its shape-holding properties.

This allows it to adapt its contours to fit those of the sitter.

Almost all foam wheelchair cushions are supplied with washable or wipeable covers.

Gel wheelchair cushions - gel - usually silicone gel - is frequently used in cushions because of its pressure and heat distribution properties.

People at risk from developing pressure sores often use this type of cushion.

It is unusual for a whole cushion to be made of gel - more often they comprise foam cushions with gel-filled compartments.

Inflatable wheelchair cushions - this style uses inflatable pockets of air to create comfort and support.

It comes with the territory that blow-up wheelchair cushions are vulnerable to punctures, so need to be treated more carefully than other kinds of cushion.

Most inflatable cushions have a 'nodular' design.

The nodules create both support and also allow air to flow around the user's posterior.

Wedge shaped wheelchair cushions - these are cut in a triangular or 'wedge' shape.

The thick end of the wedge is usually positioned at the back, under the person's coccyx area.

Contoured cushions - these have curved sections which fit the shape of one's backside, hopefully providing improved support and stability.

They often feature firmer foam around the edges and softer material towards the centre.

Wheelchair cushions with cut-out sections - these are designed to relieve pressure to specific areas.

Some have a section cut out in the centre of the cushion, while others feature a cut-out under the coccyx area.

This part of the body may be extra sensitive in some people.

Nodular wheelchair cushions - these have raised bumps which some people find supportive and comfortable.

The nodules may also help with airflow, reducing discomfort from overheating.

Are wheelchair cushions all the same size?

Most cushions are available in various dimensions, so check the details of the products concerned.

Many are available in different depths, as well as widths, so you should be able to find one for your wheelchair.

Are wheelchair cushions washable?

Many cushions come with washable covers - check the details on the product.

Others have wipe-clean outer covers which are robust and practical.

Are fleeces cushions for wheelchairs available?

Warm synthetic and lambswool cushions are a popular choice because of the comfort and cosiness they offer.

Some kinds have a cushion which not only fits on the seat, but also extends up the back rest.

This proves warmth and cushioning to the parts of the body in most contact with the wheelchair.
