    Cushion for hot tub?

    Hello all! I'm a T-9 para. My new home has a hot tub that I plan to use but would like to have something for cushion as the seats are just too hard for my skinny butt now lol. I should also mention I do fine with hot tubs with my injury as I know some SCI individuals don't. Does anyone have suggestions or a history with cushioning for a hot tub seat?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've used a Stimulite Contour Select in the past. I have one I modified for shower use (opened all the 'honeycomb' holes on the bottom surface so water can more freely flow through). That worked great. Forget about trying to use anything that would soak up water (I.e. open fell foam) or that uses air cells (I.e. Roho) Our natural buoyancy helps in the pressure relief department, too, when we are mostly submerged.

    (Once on vacation, I just yanked the same type of cushion (Not modified) off my chair to use in a hot tub. Big mistake. The cushion was so full of grit and grime (was rolling around Hawaii off road for days) it created a skim coat of debris floating atop the water. It was gross.)

        Hello, been using this https://www.sailrite.com/Foam-Closed...-1-2-x-56-x-24 closed cell foam for shower chair cushion (and back), pool lounger(sometimes plastic is to hard) and as a cushion for any hard surface especially when transfering. This one is firm but not hard, its more firm'ish, use to to transfer from wheelchair to chair or lounger to floor then slip in the pool, then reverse the process to get back in the wheelchair. Also very buoyant, easy to cut to size with utility knife, used it for more then 10 years very happy with it.

          I like these for any situation where more protection is needed. Cut to fit.
