Wheelchair cushions designed to adjust to a person’s size and form can help redistribute pressure and provide support for activities of daily living for patients with spinal cord injuries, report scientists at the Instituto Nacional de Rehabilitación (Rehabilitation National Institute) in Mexico City. The cushions seem to provide the most benefit to patients with high thoracic and incomplete cervical injuries.
The study’s 14 participants received a cushion obtained from a mold taken of their hips and buttocks, designed to prevent pressure ulcer formation while maintaining or promoting functionality.
For individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries, pressure ulcers caused from wheelchair use are a serious concern during rehabilitation and are the most common long-term secondary medical complication for spinal cord injury patients.
