Material of wheelchair cushion.

The finishing fabrics of wheelchair cushions are widely chosen, such as general cotton, velvet, brocade, nylon or linen, etc. You can also choose plain fabric, cut out your favourite pattern or interesting pattern image from other fabrics and sew on it, do it yourself, have fun, both economic, decorative and very strong. The inner core of the wheelchair cushion can be filled with sponge, pp cotton, foam, cotton or rags, etc.

  1. Canvas-type wheelchair cushion: the most common standard accessories, poor support, and after a period of use will be loose, losing the original pendulum effect;

(ii) Foam wheelchair cushion: There are two types of cushions: virgin foam and compressed foam, which are light and inexpensive and easy to modify but usually not durable and easily deformed;

(c) Airbag wheelchair cushion: the whole cushion is divided into several zones according to different needs, and the airbags are connected to each other and kept in a state of equal pressure;

(iv) Honeycomb polyester consists of a layer of elastic plastic with a honeycomb structure of different hardnesses, which allows air to circulate through the microscopic pores remaining in the material and can therefore also be washed directly in the washing machine;

(v) Gel type liquid type gel wheelchair cushions also use the fluid principle to maintain isometric pressure, while the solid type uses deformation to counteract shear forces; when squeezed, the gel changes shape with the user's body movements to reduce the pressure on the bony protrusions, which has a good pressure equalisation effect.

(f) The composite wheelchair cushion is made of two or more materials, combining the physical properties of each material. The seat cushion uses gel material at the hip area and slow-rebound polyurethane foam material at the other parts, so that the upper layer is softer and the lower layer is slightly harder, thus creating a pressure-reducing and supporting surface with a special effect on both sides.
