A proper support cushion can make all the difference while sleeping or sitting for long periods. There are so many options on the market it can be hard to find the right one for you. Find out how they differ from each other and why you need to know them.
Introducing the Ausnew Cushions
For many users, a cushion that provides some comfort will help them to use the bed or chair for a longer time. It is not necessary for every user to have a pressure relief cushion, but users with limited mobility or no skin sensation are always at risk of developing pressure sores when using a bed or chair without a proper cushion.
The Benefits of a support cushion
Support cushions provide comfort and also offer a variety of advantages that can be beneficial for the user's health.
✔️ IMPROVE POSTURE - Sitting or lying down for extended periods can worsen your posture over time. This is because staying in one position for too long can compress your hips, spine, and tailbone, causing you to slouch or lean forward.
✔️ RELIEVE PRESSURE - Support cushions also redistribute pressure so that your weight is not placed on high-pressure areas for extended periods. This helps improve your posture by preventing the compression of your hips, spine, and tailbone.
✔️ IMPROVE SLEEP QUALITY - The position you sleep in can affect your sleep quality and may even cause you to wake up with back, shoulder, or neck pain. The right support pillow can help keep your body in a neutral position to reduce pain and help you sleep better.
