    I use a low profile Roho for in the car. Works great on long trips. I never had an issue and drive for twelve hours increments. Have a safe trip.

    I also use a low profile Roho 4-chamber in the car. It works well with the 'bucket'
    of the seats for me (supports where my meat is gone), isn't too high/unstable, and minimizes sheer when braking and turning. A good choice IMO.

    I can't use a low profile on my everyday chair, it doesn't off load my ischials enough, at all! I have to use a contour, or a high profile, or there just isn't enough support under my trochanters. My preference for everyday sitting is a Contour Select XS from Stimulite. My car seats are have enough "bucket" that the low profile works fine.

    Cushions are designed for wheelchairs with correct seating

    The anti-decubitus cushion can only isolate shear force if you have squeeze angle between 80 and 90 deg. I.e. an acute or right angle between seat and backrest, not a wrong angle. In order for the backrest to recline, the front of the seat needs to be much higher than the back.

    Normally an AB can push on the floor as they tend to slide out of many car seats. They need to do this with the wood bead seat covers preferred by taxi drivers. Pushing down helps avoid DVT, but can be distracting for the driver.

    My husband uses the 16x16 ROHO Mosaic. Fits well on his Toyota Sienna driver seat.
