NXT Seating – NuFit Wheelchair Cushion

Description

The NXT NuFit wheelchair cushion is a multi-layer contoured cushion designed for users who need a comfortable cushion with good positioning and are at low to medium risk of skin breakdown.

Anatomically shaped SPS (Selectively Perforated Softening) perforations are anatomically positioned to support the ischial/sacral area to prevent sliding and shear and maintain pelvic positioning. Provides immersion and lower pressures to the bony prominences while supporting surrounding areas that can take a higher load. Pelvic Obliquity/Lateral Pads are available in 0.5” (1.3cm), or they can be doubled to 1” (2.5cm). They are easy to install in various locations with double-sided tape and can be trimmed to fit. These pads can be used as a pelvic obliquity build-up or adduction for thighs.

Preventing pressure ulcers

It can be difficult to completely prevent pressure ulcers, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.

These include:

  • Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
  • Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home
  • Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
  • Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation

If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
