BETTERLIVING Silicone Fibre Ring Cushion

BETTERLIVING Silicone Fibre Ring Cushion


Size: 420x380mm


This ring cushion is especially good for geriatric or palliative care. Made from silicone-coated cylindrical fibres that are specially designed to retain their loft and will not flatten with prolonged use. The cylindrical shape helps to keep air flowing around the skin's surface, keeping the skin healthy and helping to regulate your temperature. Offering good support and superior comfort, the special silicone coating also helps to reduce friction and shear two factors that significantly contribute to the risk of a pressure ulcer. The silicone coating also helps to stop moisture from sweat or other bodily fluids from penetrating the cushion's surface. Covered with a breathable cotton/polyester fabric, the ring cushion is flame retardant and machine washable with standard detergent. Pressure injuries can occur when someone sits or lies for too long in one position without moving or shifting their weight. Blood vessels take oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body, including the skin. Constant pressure in one area means that blood and nutrients are not able to reach the skin in this area. Tissue that is deprived of oxygen and other nutrients for even a short period of time will eventually die. This can lead to very serious complications, and cause great pain and suffering to patients.
