DESCRIPTION

JDM Medical's Anti-Hammocking Wheelchair Cushion uses the highest quality materials to provide comfort without reducing mobility. Many other wedges and cushions have flat bottoms, thereby elevating the sitter so their feet no longer touch the ground. This extra elevation often eliminates an individual's ability to foot propel. JDM Medical's Anti-Hammocking Cushion has a convex bottom that eliminates the sling effect of vinyl-bottomed wheelchairs. This design allows the sitter to sit more comfortably without giving up mobility. This is most useful for individuals who are able to maneuver their wheelchair by foot movement.

The Anti-Hammocking Cushion has the following properties:

  • Contains High Resiliency (HR) foam, which is the highest grade of polyurethane foam
  • An optional layer of Gel-Infused Visco Elastic (G.I.V.E.). This layer provides shock absorption, body molding, pressure redistribution and comfort.
    • Also note that for the highest suggested weight-bearing tolerance Visco is highly recommended
  • A convex-shaped bottom of high-resiliency (HR) polyurethane to eliminate sling-seat sag.
  • An anti-skid bottom, Velcro strap, and Nylon buckle strap all help keep the cushion from sliding
  • Due to their low profile, these cushions are excellent for those individuals who are able to propel their wheelchair by foot movement.

Our products are manufactured to order in the United States by a veteran owned small business. All materials meet the U.S.A.'s highest flame retardant standard for furniture (CA TB 117). All covers are antibacterial, antistatic, and fluid-proof & all of our products are designed with the long term care (LTC) industry in mind so they have excellent longevity.
