Use Custom Cushions to Prevent Pressure Sores

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

If you are someone you know is a bed or wheelchair-ridden adult, you may be prone to developing pressure sores on your skin. These ulcers appear when a person stays in one position for too long, and their chair or bed causes pressure or friction on certain areas of their body. These sores are painful and can lead to more serious infections in the worst cases.

One of the easiest ways to prevent pressure sores from forming on your skin is by using foam seat cushions to reduce friction and pressure on your body. Foam cushions provide a malleable surface that is more comfortable to sit on. Their softer texture results in less pain and friction as you sit or lie down. Due to our unique body shapes, certain body parts sink more deeply into chairs and beds. Foam cushions mitigate the effects of these pressure points by distributing body weight more evenly. Furthermore, foam cushions can also aid your circulation and digestion, which can be impeded by continuous pressure on your lower body. Don’t wait until pressure sources form before taking care of your skin’s health. Order a custom cushion for your bed or wheelchair today.
