Cheap and adequate?

Ages ago someone left a comment about wheelchair cushions. I looked at the site but sadly this is not something I can afford and its not something I can get from the Amsterdam city council as they do not care about your health and welfare not anymore just the cost, everything has to be cheap and adequate. Cheap being more important than adequate!!

As you spend more and more time in your wheelchair you are starting to notice the effects of reduced circulation such as swelling legs. You are right to realize that lack of movement reduces circulation. EASE Seating in California makes a cushion that moves for you. They have hundreds of customers with M/S who can sit up all day without pain or pressure sores. A pressure sore killed Christopher Reeve in 5 days, despite spending $400,000 a year on care! Call USA 530 877-8705 of www.EASEcushion.com.

i can't believe there isn't any sort of organization like the ms society that helps with things like this. i'm sure you've looked, it just seems criminal that this sort of thing goes on.

I got a great cheap($70) gel cushion that my rear uses daily, works great. Let it be know the cost will quadruple if you get a pressure sore. Speak to their wallet.(your Dr. can write a prescription for this)
