I am not able to walk any distance and so use a powerchair. But the problem with this is that after half an hour or so it gets really uncomfortable and pain in my lower back starts and I am plagued with pressure sores. I have experimented with numerous different cushions at great expense and would welcome any advice from people with similar experience. In particular has anyone got any experience using Roho air cushions. I am fairly confident that they would be helpful, but they are expensive. I am concerned that they may be prone to punctures. In treating my pressure sores, the District Nurse provided me with an air mattress and an air cushion for my recliner chair which works well and helps with the pain so an air cushion on the powerchair May be the solution and better than foam or gel cushions. I would appreciate it very much if anyone with similar problems would let me have their solutions. Thank you.
