    Thanks, it doesn't look like they are available in the UK but I have contacted them anyway.

    Exact same problem. Exact same spot. Started as dry skin. I put soap on my shower chair cushion and thought it dried the skin out since it never got rinsed off.It eventually opened a little like a paper cut. It just wouldn't get better, or worse but deffinately wasn't happy after using the shower chair. I have the Raz chair with a PRX seat which I noticed they don't sell anymore. I ordered their Visco foam seat and bought a Roho commode cushion to use until the new seat arrives. The Roho cusion is more comfortable but difficult to get on because of the increased height.
