With mild to moderate skin protection and a design that emphasizes comfort and prevention of sliding, Ride Designs’ Forward wheelchair seat cushion can be a great intervention for growing kids, seniors or clients who have sustained a stroke, brain injury or incomplete spinal cord injury.
The Forward’s design surrounds the pelvis with supportive contours while reducing pressure around at-risk bony prominences. The result is improved postural control without compromising skin protection. The cushion is made to help keep hips level and positioned at the back of the chair, which can enhance the wheelchair user’s seated stability. Now the Forward cushion is available in four additional sizes — 14x18", 15x15", 15x17" and 17x17" — in response to industry demand.
