    W/C Cushions with a FAN!!!

    I wanted to share my satisfaction with this product in case you too might be interested

    I am a full time wheelchair user due to MS and have been using one of these cushions for several months now. I am extremely pleased with its ability to greatly reduce moisture from my bum. (It is very comfortable as well.)

    Is that cushion pretty comfortable and does it give you good pressure relief?

      yes, to both of your questions. those were two of my concerns as well. they have a 30 day risk free trial so i figured i didn't have anything to lose if not.

                Sounds interesting. I'd like to know how it compares too

                  I tried one this weekend. Very hard and not very good for pressure relief for me. Fan was not to loud but only lasted about 6 hours. I'm sending it back. C-6 Quad with normal sensation on my butt. I need a new cushion that keeps sweat away and is very soft. Any ideas? I have a Roho and tried the Stimulite. Roho holds in the sweat and Stimulites xs is to hard for me. Please help me!

                      I've had it over a year and sit on it for 6 months. I switch from time to time to my roho then to my stimulite. The Stimulite just kills my butt sitting on it all day. I do pressure reliefs but it still doesn't help me.

                        Brilliant idea! Not sure how it is for pressure relief, but now you can fart and someone on the other side of the room will get blamed for it.

                          It would be great if it was only more softer. Yeah it will blow the farts out....lol It might be great for someone else but my bottom is to skinny and sore for sitting almost 10 years now on it. I can't believe it will be 10 years this August. I was told I'd be walking by 5 years after my accident and no later then 10 years. Looking like they going to say another 10 more years you might move a fingers. I need a good cushion that you don't have to adjust.

                              I tried a Stimulite cushion... for about a minute. I wasn't going to trust my butt to that rock for any longer than that.

                              I was seriously amazed at how hard the damn thing was. Do you still use one? I just can't imagine that anyone at risk of developing pressure sores would use one of those cushions. Does anyone else here use one?
