The Drive Medical Multi-Purpose Wheelchair Wedge Cushion is a wedge shaped cushion designed to allow users to sit comfortably on wheelchairs. The wedge is made of a high density foam that conforms to the natural contours of the user’s body. This helps provide efficient weight distribution and maximum pressure relief.
The cushion is a wedge shape that is placed on the wheelchair with the thicker part on the front edge of the seat. This prevents the users from falling or sliding off from the seat which creates a safe environment. The cushion has a firm core that eliminates the pressure exerted on the user due to movement in sling back wheelchairs. The high density core also ensures the user’s stability while moving around in the wheelchair.
The Multi-Purpose Wheelchair Wedge Cushion comes enclosed in a zippered style cover. The cover has a fluid resistant, stretchable nylon top and a waterproof vinyl bottom. The cover has a low shear surface that is gentle and safe even for sensitive skin types. The firm construction of the cushion makes it strong enough to support a maximum weight of two hundred and fifty pounds or one hundred and thirteen kilograms. The seat wedge measures eighteen inches in width and sixteen inches in length. The height of the cushion inclines from two inches at the thinnest section to four inches at the thickest edge.
