DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual who uses a wheelchair to sit for longer periods. A sideways groove 1.5 inches wide was cut into a four-inch thick piece of foam exactly where the user's sitting pressure points are. To maintain the integrity of the foam, the groove starts 2 inches in from each side. A V-shaped groove was cut under the tail bone. The two grooves move sitting pressure to the fleshier parts of the legs and buttocks and alieviates direct pressure on bony areas. A J Active pad (see entry) was placed on the front portion of the cushion and two supplemental pads were placed on the rear section. The rear pads were put in cloth bags so that they could be shaped to meet the contours of the cushion and secured in position using Velcro. TITLE: The Custom Seat Cushion.
