The wheelchair is not the only important decision one has to make. Choosing appropriate seating for a wheelchair can make all the difference for an individual. Cushions and backrests are two important components for all wheelchair users to maintain healthy skin and the stability needed to drive their power chair, propel their manual chair and perform daily activities. Seating products can aid in stabilizing the wheelchair user. Specialty seating ranges from basic foam cushions to highly specialized cushions and backs to help promote healthy skin, while providing improved mobility, balance and control. Many seating products have built-in and or optional components to aid in this needed postural control.
