Along with wheelchair cushions for seating, there are important choices to make regarding the type of back cushion to order. Back cushions act as support and help encourage good posture in users who are confined to a wheelchair for extended periods.
While the typical back on a wheelchair might be sufficient for short term use, wheelchair back cushions can be added for varying degrees of comfort. The padded cushions come with hardware that can be used to adjust both the angle and the height of the cushions, according to the size of the chair and the user. Flat back cushions have a slight curve and are ordered according to the width and height of the user and the chair. Biangular cushions are similar to the flat cushion but with hinges that change the curve from concave to convex. There is also an option to order custom wheelchair back cushions.
