Three inches of a layered foam and gel combination make these cushions for Medline wheelchairs some of the top rated impact cushions on the market. A gel pack is placed in between two dense layers of resilient foam and then covered in nylex, a.k.a. loop velvet. The results are tremendous for those who spend long periods of time in wheelchairs or who suffer from back or tailbone pain.
Wheelchairs make life much easier for millions of people. The ability to get out and see family and friends, run errands and simply navigate the home are priceless. However, so is your body’s structural health. Long periods of sitting in the same position can strain the body’s structural integrity in many ways, from leg cramps to back spasms to pressure sores. Wheelchair accessories like chair pads and lumbar support cushions are crucial for staying comfortable without damaging joints and muscles.
Having padding in place like the Medline 3” Gel-Foam Chair Cushion will help maintain you or your loved one’s wheelchair as a great way to get around, even on outdoor terrain that can be a bit bumpy: avoid jolts to the spine and enjoy the smooth ride!
Each of these Medline wheelchair cushions come with a full five-year warranty, have a weight capacity of 250 lbs and are available in three sizes: 18 x 16, 20 x 16 and 20 x 18 inches. They can be used with any brand wheelchair and/or regular chair, just be sure to take seat measurements to ensure a proper fit.
