    For those who have a tilt/recline-what cushion?

    I'm going for a pressure map August 23rd, to get a new cushion. My Roho was sheering when I tilt/recline. I was wondering what cushion you use with a tilt/recline?

    Thanks,
    Mona

    My husband is in a tilt recline Permobil M300 and uses a Jay deep contour with good results. He has always used Jay cushions for 26 years but changed to a Jay deep contour last year.

    I also like the Jay Deep Contour cushion. It is attached to my seat pan in the tilt chair so it stays in position no matter what tilt angle I am in, or while transferring. I use a Quantum 6000 tilt chair.

    thank you very much, I will check out the Jay Deep contour.
    I definately need one that will work with a tilt/recliner. Hope everything is going well with you Eileen.

    David has Jay2 Deep cushions with both his Invacare TDX3 and also the Frontier X5 chairs.

    Both chairs only have tilt...not recline.

    Dave also uses the J. I don't know anything about cushions, it is what they reccomended and ordered at Craig.
    Hope you are doing OK Mona.

    My wife had a Roho Quadtro. Her back cushion was also a Roho. She spent most of her time tilted somewhat. We never noticed a shearing problem.

    Mona, Jim also uses a Jay Deep Contour cushion, has never had a skin issue since his initial injury 11 years ago. He uses an Arrow Invacare tilt w/c. I seem to remember there used to be a debate about tilt vs recline, with some saying recline was bad due to shearing, we opted for tilt only 11 years ago. He is up at least 10 hours/day, has never spent a day in bed and just tilts usually every half hour for a few minutes at a time. Works for him but everyone is different. He is c5 complete, diabetic, type l, x 40 years and has gained no weight since injury.

    Seems like alot of you use the Jay Contour, I'm going to try and make sure when I go for sitting that they have one I can try out. I wasn't sure if you could get enough pressure relief by only tilting. Do you know how far your wc tilts? The angle? I definitely think its the reclining that is causing my problems. Thank you so much. I really appericate your help. I don't know what I would do without ya'll. Mona

    I recently got my M300 Permobil with tilt/recline. I am using a quattro and do not see any sheering problems. I have been monitoring things closely because this is a new setup.
