Seating and positioning supports help you maintain safe and functional postures. For many people it is important to move between a variety of different positions during your day.
What kinds of seating and positioning supports are there?
Seat cushions may use materials like foam, gel, or air to help prevent pressure sores and other injuries.
Use foam wedges to add support to your existing seat or bed. Large wedges can also offer more positioning options, such as laying on your back or stomach.
Alternating Pressure Cushions
Alternating pressure devices push air into different compartments of the cushion or mattress, to rotate the degree of pressure in each spot throughout the day or night. Alternating pressure air mattresses might help prevent bedsores.
Many options exist to support your body in a position different from the traditional seated posture. These might include Tumbleform chairs, Yogibo beanbags, or corner sitters and kneeling chairs.
