hey guys it’s Brian today I review a
video just talking about different
cushions for your wheelchair there’s
different people that have different
preferences I just wanted to share mine
and kind of go over the different
options that you have the one that I
actually use is a ROHO cushion it’s air
filled in the back and this is called a
hybrid cushion because it’s air filled
in the back but it’s solid up front kind
of like a jade cushion would be I like
this because it gives me a lot of
stability when I’m transferring when I’m
pushing down on the front end I feel
like I’m not sinking down like I would
if it was a full air filled ROHO cushion
I’m also getting a lot of protection F
out of this I have a very very bony butt
and I tend to get pressure sores if I’m
sitting on a hard surface or a cushion
that’s not very protective I feel like I
get a lot more protection out of the air
I’ve pressure mapped very very well on
the air what you want to do with these
is you can fill up this little air valve
with air but you don’t want to be you
don’t want to fill it up very much the
idea is that you’re sinking as deep as
you can into this and you don’t want to
bottom out you want to leave about that
much where you can kind of put your hand
under it and feel that you’re almost
bottoming out but you’re not quite that
is giving you a lot of protection
because these are basically your new
butt cheeks since your bone is pretty
much almost exposed the downside of an
air-filled cushion is it can be
punctured fairly easily I think I’ve had
two cushions over the last couple years
that did get punctures on them they do
come with a patch kit so you can patch
them yourself
or if it’s been over two years a lot of
the times insurance will just replace
just the cushion part thing and replace
the whole base so I know that I did get
a second cushion out of them for that
the other cushion that is kind of
similar is a full ROHO cushion this is a
travel question I use for the car if I’m
going long distances you can see it’s
not very thick because this is not one
you would use full-time but I just
wanted to show it because it is a
cushion that you would find a full
cushion where it’s air fill in the front
air filled in the back down side of this
is doing transfers when you’re pressing
down on the front if you don’t have a
lot of stability you’re kind of sinking
in you’re sinking around in the air if
this isn’t a cushion that has different
just different pockets in it you’re
pushing down air and sometimes it’s
coming harder on this side or harder on
this side so you’re kind of floating
around constantly so I prefer not to
have something like this the cushion
that I started out on was it j2 which is
this in a j2 it has a similar base is
this part in the front but it’s actually
gel-filled in the back and I didn’t
really like this as much because I felt
like I was constantly having to
redistribute the gel what happens is
you’ll sink down into the back each bump
Momo sink in and then all the gel kind
of pushes right between your legs so
you’re constantly you know having to
press it back down to redistribute it
back the other downside of a gel foam
cushion is extremely heavy it does add a
couple extra pounds when you’re
transferring this thing in and out
compared to this which is super
lightweight that does make a big
difference so I did not like the gel as
much felt like it didn’t give me quite
the protection so I switched out to the
air the last one which I don’t have but
I have tried is a honeycomb cushion
super core is the company that pretty
much is the main company that I’ve seen
that distributes the honeycomb I didn’t
pressure map that wall on I figured hey
maybe pressure map doesn’t say
everything so I tried it for a couple
days I also gave it back and then two
years later when I was trying out my new
chair trying to get a new chair I
figured hey I’ll give it another shot
still didn’t press your map as well on
it I think it just doesn’t give me the
protection that the air does like I said
very bony some people that hey if you’re
a little bit bigger you might have a
little more cushion to yourself than
that I feel like I do so I think for me
me I’m going to stick with the
air-cushion and that’s pretty much how I
wanted to share with you if you have any
questions or comments let me know if I
missed anything let me know and I’ll
answer your question thanks a lot
