Discussion About: Akros Gel Wheelchair Cushion with Poly Cotton Cover

Akros Gel Wheelchair Cushion with Poly Cotton Cover
What pad is best for someone with a stage 4 bed sore? She is coming home soon and It will be mostly healed, but not all the way. Is this product the one I want or the other gel pad?

Mike Cary
To our knowledge, this type of cushions are usually used for people who has not developed sores or has sores of very early stage (such as I). For patient with advanced stage sores, especially stage IV, this type of products will be less effective in healing or keeping the wound from getting worse. You may consider an alternating pressure air chair that converts a chair or wheelchair into pressure relief system for effective healing and prevention.

If the sores are located on the body, you may need to consider an alternating pressure mattress (with low air loss) that will continue to heal and prevent sores.
These Akros 812 Series gel wheelchair cushions are designed for long term care patients who are at risk of pressure ulcers with pressure relief. Shipping is free.
