What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Offloading vs Immersion: Wheelchair Cushions for Pressure Injuries

Part 4 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2, Part 3.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

The rule of thumb to minimize peak pressures with the goal of reducing the risk of or healing an existing pressure injury is: remove pressure from a small surface area that cannot withstand constant pressure or shear forces and REDISTRIBUTE it across areas of greater surface area. For example, we can redistribute pressure from the ITs to the femur and as much of the gluteal surface as possible. And we achieve this through either offloading or immersion.
One method is not necessarily better than the other; a therapist must understand what the benefits and considerations are of all methods and choose the best option for each patient. Utilize cushions that through their construction offload or immerse, or combine the principles.
Let’s review in detail the principle of offloading.
