My client has cerebral palsy and is in a manual w/c full time. He is very thin (boney) in body frame so his potential for skin breakdown on his botto
Pressure sore prevention, comfort. Air pockets can be adjusted/removed for individual comfort. Durable air pockets haven't popped.
Might not like some of the shuffling noise of individual air pockets that may occur during movement/repositioning. Not really a concern for us as we don't notice it. Seat cushion had a rip at the seam in front. It may have been caused by using a lap tray with post in the middle.

A comfortable, almost maintenance-free cushion with a lifetime warranty

This cushion requires almost no maintenance and is ready for use out of the box. Additional air cells can be purchased if needed (though most users probably shouldn't need them unless some get lost or damaged since this cushion is well balanced out of the box). The lifetime warranty can't be beat. The choice between 2 different types of cushion covers is nice (I chose the Comfort Tek which I think is easier to maintain). Few cushions are able to support as much weight as this one.
There is no documentation saying how many air cells are in each compartment out of the box, so if one accidentally loses any cells out of the cushion, replacing them the way they were is a guessing game.

My husband had a right hip disarticulation in September and this helps him to sit in comfort. He also uses one to drive the car.
Ability to change the pressure of the individual pockets of the cushion.
Possibly noisy, but understandable due to material used.
