Thread: Shower cushion ideas

    Shower cushion ideas

    I would like to shower in my every day manual chair on occasions like vacation or one night hotel stays (with roll-in shower) Any ideas for a waterproof cushion that i could swap out just for the shower? Would a roho work? I know its not the best for a chair but would be nice on occasion if I had the right cushion? Maybe an inflatable type? any ideas?

    Lots of people remove the cover from their Roho and use it in the shower or tub, but you could also use something like the ByeBye Decubiti cushion:

    This work really well for me, use it in the shower to sit on and as a back cushion. It can be slippery when wet and soapy, depending on the type of surface it is on, but when sitting straight it is fine. Also use it to transfer and sit on pool lounge and any other surface. Its firm but soft firm, 2 linear feet is 24x56, cut 3-4 cushions to your needs, been using it for about 7 years now. http://www.sailrite.com/Foam-Closed-...FdgMgQodTgcAww

    I use a Supracore Stimulite in the shower. I modified the holes on the bottom of the honeycomb by widening them to the full size of each 'comb' (stock they just have a pin hole in the middle of each) which really helped with quick draining and drying. I keep little soap and shampoo bottles in the cover's pouch, which is handy. Gotta wash the cover every week, at least, or it will get funky with mildew and soap residue, if just left to air dry with the cover on. I just throw the whole thing into the washer and dryer.

    I've also showered in my chair with no ill effects. Although bearings might not last as long, as they otherwise would, with regular soakings.

    (Using a Roho without a cover isn't the greatest idea, although a lot of folks do it. The manufacturer states the cover is integral to maintain proper protection and functionality, as it keeps the individual cells from displacing too far (causing over immersion of bony prominences and possible contact with the seat as well as protection from potential sheer on the rubber). This has been my experience, as well, with my bony butt. I could never inflate on enough to keep the cells where they needed to be without a cover.)
