When you have to use a wheelchair for mobility, it means that you will spend most of the time seated in the chair. Seating for long hours can cause more complications for you; this is the reason why you should consider ensuring that you are well supported in your seat and that you maintain a good posture so that you don’t worse the situation. Sportaid thinks about your health the most and always try to provide best products ever.

Features of the Jay X2 Wheelchair Cushion

Cleaning and examining your wheelchair cushion is a straightforward process which when performed every week, helps to keep your seat cushion fresh and clean and help to improve its useful lifespan.
Prior to taking out your cushion, make sure you know its precise position and location in the chair to ensure that it could be put back in its correct position. Should you have any concerns for correct cushion placement, consult your therapist.
Wheelchair Cushion Features
The majority of cushions include a cover with either a zipper or a Velcro closure. After the cover is taken off, you should be able to clean it in a washer. Be sure to use a warm/cold and delicate cycle with gentle soap and no bleach. The covers can be air tumble dried to prevent any harm from the heat. Many industrial dryers become too hot for cushion cover material and can result in damage.
Fluid-filled and gel cushions: Wash with soap and water. Rinse off. Towel dry.
Stretchy Matrix or Honeycomb Cushions: These are made to be easily cleaned. They come with a washing bag in which they are machine laundered followed by a tumble dry.
