"In my situation with both of my legs amputated, I have to sit in my wheelchair most of the day. That makes it between 10 and 12 hours in my wheelchair every day. Therefore it is of great importance with a comfortable cushion. Such a cushion is the Akva Care cushion. It hasn't giving me any discomfort like soreness or tiredness. Moreover I don't feel that the structure of the cushion has been changing in the period, I have used it. All in all, I will give my strongest recommendations to the Akva Care cushion."

"As a wheelchair user, I have tried different cushions through the years, but always with doubtful results. I have among other things endured a period with pressure sores. Furthermore been sitting on pure foam cushions that I had to change every third month, as they were compressed so much that they couldn't offer me any support. That is why my reaction after I tried the Akva Care cushion was one of great relief. It just feels so good... Now, I can sit without getting sore and the durability of the cushion is not an issue anymore." Margrethe Iversen, mentally disabled Learn more
