My Mom recently noticed two small pressure sores on the backs of my thighs. I have been trying to be really careful to avoid pressure sores, since I haven't had one in over a year, but it happened anyway. All I know is that the sores hurt and itch bad. They are right on the cutoff area where I can start to feel my legs (mid-thigh).
The only thing we can think of that caused them was me sitting on a different cushion in my backup chair (my main chair is too big for me now, so we've been using my backup chair more with a Jay Active gel/foam cushion). Right now, Mom is having me sit on my Roho Quadtro Select cushion (our backup cushion) to try to relieve the pressure more, but that cushion is very uncomfortable to sit on all day long. I like the gel cushions, because they are comfortable to sit on, especially for someone who can feel everything from mid-thigh and above.
Does anyone know of any other cushion we can try that is for people at moderate/high risk for pressure sores?
