    Yea, those Roho covers are easy to damage. When I got a new cushion, I put new cover on then old cover over that. Always have towel over it too in case I spill something. Easier to wash towel than cover.
    I did something that made my cushion feel better. It feels like leg blood circulation is better. I put medium high density foam 1.5" thick under it. The two pieces don't shift/move around much. I think because the velcros friction on pan and cushion keeps things in place.

    This thread has reminded me that I need a new apron. I've been patching my old one with t-shirt material and fabric glue. Many burn holes and cuts. The holes and cuts in my work clothes are reminders of when I forgot to put on apron. When your in the zone and making progress, it's easy to forget.
    Leather is best but heavy and expensive. Thick canvass is what I want. Amazon, Wal Mart, and Ebay web pages all open at same times makes for good price and availability options.
    Will be adding one to the cart soon.

    When you put a towel over your Roho, or any non-stretchy thick material, you are cancelling out the benefits of this cushion. You might as well just use a cheap piece of foam rubber.

    I agree. Towels also make butt hotter and a big wrinkle can create a pressure point. However, when living solo and doing my best to be 100% independent and unable to remove and clean cover myself, it's a trade off I have to deal with. A thin sheet of spandex has been on my mind as a better alternative. Need to look for some.

    $27 is a fair price for an apron like that. Should last a life time. I may get it. Thanks for link.

    I'm glad to hear others have issue with the fragile Roho. I also weld grind cut and play with fabricating steel. I tend to use an old wool army blanket when welding. It does a great job with the sparks but the metal bits from grinding or cutting always tend to fall into my lap. I try to clean out my seat cushion after I'm done playing which usually works but it only takes one small sharp bit to make me go flat.
    It makes playing in the garage less fun

    How about a 1/2" foam on top of the Roho for those high risk times?

    Permobil/Roho is vey specific that nothing should be added to the cushion/cover/or on top of the cover. So seems like protecting yourself from the top/lap down in the case of you do-it-yourselfers is your best option.

    I agree. Either a welder's apron like the one above, or look at "smoker's aprons" like this one:

    We had one like this for one of my clients who kept setting himself alight when smoking outdoors.
