    I have no personal experience, but can you slide the board under the cushion instead?

    Yes. Just be sure no sharp edges on the board.

    I put it on top of the cushion with no problems. Like KDL said to be sure there are no sharp edges or splinters if it is a wooden board. I have never done this but you could put a cloth between the board and cushion for some extra protection if you are really concerned or on the bottom of the board, you could coat it with something like flex seal to give it a little more protection. Just throwing those out there off the top of my head. Like I said I have used a board to transfer up into the van from my chair and I think in 20 plus years I suspected one time that I may have caused a leak in my ROHO by doing so. Only had a leak one time in the area of the cushion that the board came in contact with.

    Should be no problem. If you start using a transfer board, keep it Pledged for easy sliding. Also, when I transfer without clothes on I use a piece of silk on top of the board to reduce friction from sweat.
