ANTI THRUST CUSHION / WHEELCHAIR CUSHION TO PREVENT SLIDING FORWARD
While many cushions offer pressure relief and posture support, sometimes a user simply needs to find an anti-thrust cushion that will provide positioning stability and support. This type of wheelchair cushion is used to prevent sliding forward, since many manual wheelchair users are susceptible to this during motion. AvaCare Medical has a full selection of positioning cushions from the top brands on the market!
Reasons Why a User May Need Positioning
Many wheelchair users tend to slide forward in their wheelchair seats on a normal basis. For the elderly, the severely disabled, and even bariatric users, this can be a problem. Seat positioning and stability is important, and sliding forward (forcing constant readjustment) can cause many skin problems, from pressure sores (bedsores), friction sores, and even skin tears.
Most manual wheelchairs and transport chairs are designed to envelope the users in a hammock-like shape, yet they may not provide the exceptional support and comfort that a user needs. Depending on a person’s age and their handicap severity, an anti-thrust cushion for a wheelchair will give more support and stability simply because the users aren’t able to hold themselves up as easily (or reposition themselves frequently).
Types of Anti-Thrust Cushions
Just like wheelchair cushions for other issues, there is more than one type of non-slip wheelchair cushion, but, like any other cushion type, they’re made of various materials. Here are some popular types of wheelchair positioning cushions you can find at AvaCare Medical:
Gel Wheelchair Support Cushions
Gel wheelchair support cushions are made often with a T-Gel™ compound or a silicone compound and provide exceptional relief from pressure, as well as added support and strength to a person’s seat. Gel can help aid in making a non-slip wheelchair pad more firm, while adding to the shape and function. Of course, gel also provides great moisture wicking capabilities to wheelchair pads as well.
