A wheelchair can at times be unbearable and intolerable for everyday users and even for those who only occasionally use it. After all, a wheelchair is designed and built to first be sturdy and strong for guaranteed support rather than to be comfortable.
Why Sheepskin Wheelchair Cushions
While medical wheelchair cushions can help alleviate the discomfort and sometimes pain, they can be unpleasant too for the most part, especially as they are manufactured using non-porous synthetic fabrics and materials which tend to block the flow of air to the skin and in turn, results in uncomfortable sweating.
Perspiration when restricted from being absorbed and completely released is unhealthy.
This is when using sheepskin wheelchair cushions and overlays will be a good, if not the best, choice for wheelchair users.
The Benefits of Using Sheepskin Wheelchair Cushions and Overlays
They Absorb the Vibrations on the Seat While in Motion and Distribute the Pressure of the Patient's Body
One of the benefits of using sheepskin wheelchair cushions
and overlays is they soften the sling seat
and the backrest of the wheelchair. Sheepskin wheelchair cushions and overlays can also be placed over an existing wheelchair medical cushion made out of different materials and not affect the medical advantages of the lambswool cushion.
Sheepskin wheelchair cushions tend to absorb the vibrations on the seat and the backrest while the chair is in motion which greatly reduces the pressure and stresses on the patient’s body.
These lambswool wheelchair overlays also distribute the pressure of the body, which means there is much less effort exerted by the patient to remain comfortable, and at the same time keep a stable and well-balanced position.
They Absorb and Release Any Forms of Moisture or Liquid
Another one of the benefits of using sheepskin wheelchair cushions and overlays is they absorb and release moisture, water and especially sweat, instead of restricting it and confining it over the patient’s body, which can be very unhealthy for the skin and the respiratory system.
Unlike regular medical wheelchair cushions
of ordinary synthetic materials, wheelchair cushions and overlays made out of lambswool have breathable qualities and properties which allow flow of air to the skin of the wheelchair user. In this way, even long rides on the wheelchair will remain comfortable for the patient.
They Help Improve and Maintain Proper Posture of the Wheelchair User
Sheepskin has features which allow for it to mold the contours of a person’s body adjusting to it and its positions. So more than just serving as a healthful cover
for the sling seat and backrest, sheepskin wheelchair cushions and overlays help correct and maintain the good posture of the wheelchair user.
The patient will not have to restlessly shift body positions on the chair to find and settle for the more comfortable ones, because it is the sheepskin cushions
which do the work to adjust to the shape and figure of the patient’s body and its position.
They Serve as Extra Protection from Slipping
Sheepskin wheelchair cushions and overlays are designed and structured to provide an added preventive measure for the patient from causing to slip or slide out of place. They are soft and silky on the skin
yet their fibers are rugged and bumpy enough to keep the wheelchair user in place. As well, these lambswool cushions have protective and elastic fastenings that are adjustable for even more security and safety for the patient.
