  • Poll: Favorite Cushion

    I know there are tons of posts relating to this but I thought a simple poll might help consolidate the info.

    4” Roho under my butt, 2" Roho behind my back for when I recline... 21 years, no skin problems.

    Good luck.

        I can't stand the Roho's... Extremely uncomfortable to me. Don't much like Gel or Air either. Too easy to pop and not as stable. I've had both... A high quality foam cushion is what does it for me. And everyone who sits on my chair get's this little sparkle in their eye... Plus it's not stupid-expensive as some of the other options.

        Infinity Lo Contour ViscoFoam Cushion

        And you didn't have this in your list...

          Sorry but only 20 options are available for the poll so I couldn't list everything, not to mention I don't know every cushion available. Listing your cushion was perfect.

          Do to all the recent negativity could I please ask that people only comment on the cushions that they LIKE. I'd prefer if this thread was mainly kept to poll results and positive comments

          Thanks guys.

            started with jay active then had 2 roho's they work great for my butt the few months they lasted. tried jay deep but the sides pushed in on my hip bones. then i tried otto that didn't fit right in my chair and was a little to hard. i saw somewhere on here about the jay3 it works good but needed some more gel so i took the otto apart and use three of the soft one works great now.

              it's funny my last sitting clinic the pt laughed it me when i told her i bottom out on every cushion because i'm so skinny she said that she bet me 20 that she would get me in one without bottoming out. i took the bet and after trying almost every one the had she smiled and just give the money.

                  Oh so far my favourite is my Stimulite Slimline.

                    I've been sitting on a Jay2 for the past 25 almost 26 years with no skin issues so when the Jay no longer does it job for me then will I consider another cushion.

                        I have Stimulite Classics and Varilite Zoids, the lightest weight cushion that I'm aware of.

                          Stimulite Classics here as well.

                          Stephen, another question... does the Zoid flex like the Stimulites? i.e. would it work on a frame w/ ergo seating?

                            Technically I don't see why not -- the Zoid certainly flexes. The pressure relief geometry/dynamics might be altered by an ergo frame (for better? for worse?). I would defer to Varilite customer support for a more definitive response.

                              with a single chamber, I think those dynamics might be altered slightly, but probably not too much… good point.

                              I couldn't tell from this photo whether the base structure of the cushion might be too firm for an ergo seat:
