Why Sitting is Bad for You – Now a Solution – A short Video
Choosing the Right Wheelchair Cushion –
You have finally got the best wheelchair based on your needs and budget. But now you feel that after you sit for while you get fidgety, bottom is numb and you may even feel some skin breakdown which may turn into terms like pressure sores or even decubitus ulcers – Now there is help!
Ergo21 has developed a range of Seat Cushions in different shapes and sizes using LiquiCell Technology
Four thin Liquid Filled Membranes are hand stitched and placed over High Resilience Foam. Two under the tailbone and two under the thighs keep the blood flow and circulation going.
A Primary Aid in Pressure Ulcer Prevention
LiquiCell is a medical technology that protects skin tissues from being stretched and torn, thereby optimizing blood flow. As a replication of the bursa sac, LiquiCell allows the body to glide or float with an object to significantly reduce and even eliminate shear and friction. LiquiCell is an aid in the prevention of pressure ulcers. No one device or technology will in and of itself prevent pressure ulcers. However, today the wound care community is seeking out preventative solutions to the various risk factors which are the means to the development of pressure ulcers.
Pressure Ulcers: a growing problem
Each year in the US, over 1 million people will develop at least one pressure ulcer, at a total treatment cost of over $55 billion.
Aging population – in the next 25 years – 60% over 65
Limited care provider staffing – younger people are not opting for careers in healthcare (particularly nursing)
Medicare reimbursement reform – HAC (Never Events)
Cost – average per patient PU treatment cost: $55,000 – $70,000+
Mortality rate – at hospitals: 23%-37% of afflicted PU patients (60K/yr).
Quality of Life – average hospital stay increases by 5 fold.
What LiquiCell Will Do for You…
Using an innovative combination of a low viscosity fluid and strategically placed seal points that control the flow of liquid, LiquiCell reduces discomfort associated with prolonged contact between the body and an object. By equalizing perpendicular pressure at the point of contact (thus reducing pressure), soft tissue compression is greatly reduced thereby significantly reducing skin friction and soft tissue shear stress.
Medical and scientific evidence prove that while gel, foams and air do provide some relief of discomfort through perpendicular pressure reduction, they do not protect against the harmful effects of friction and shear stress, two of the most influential factors related to discomfort, pain and trauma (pressure sores)

Why Ergo21 Lumbar Cushion is a must for Wheelchair and Mobility Scooter
Our research shows that most of the wheelchairs don’t have a good back support. Now with our Erg21 Lumbar Cushion with the same LiquiCell Technology, the spine is held straight like a letter T. This promotes proper spinal alignment and the Membranes keep the circulation and nutrients flowing along the spine. Wheelchair Cushion and Wheelchair Lumbar Cushion support are most important support you need for your wheelchair or mobility scooter.
- Deep Rest and Relaxation for the Spine- Enjoy sitting for longer periods of time
- Liquid Filled Membranes eliminate hot spots when you lean against the Lumbar Support
- High Resilience Foam, molds and fills in the gaps to support the spine in a natural way without the annoying hump/bump that other Lumbar Cushions have.
- Liquid-Filled Membranes improve Blood Flow and Circulation by 150%
Available in two sizes. Small Lumbar fits most low back wheelchairs cushion. The Large Lumbar works best in high back scooter type wheelchairs, cars, trucks and recliners. Can be used on sofas as well as executive high back chairs.

Ergo21 Cushions – Changing lives
5.0 out of 5 stars Pain Relief By R. Schlax Size: Large -18″ x 17″ x 2″|Verified Purchase
This cushion was the answer for my lift chair, as we removed the foam piece & used another cushion which did not relieve pain. This innovative design fit perfectly in chair with real comfort. Was also able to use it in my power wheelchair for a 5 hour visit to doctor’s office. Have recommended it to family & friends, most in my age group with similar challenges.
What Wheelchair users are saying about Ergo21 Seat Cushions
5.0 out of 5 stars thought that was the best there was By George Albright Size: Large -18″ x 17″ x 2.5″|Verified Purchase
I was skeptical, to say the least. I am a leg amputee and spend most of my day in a wheel chair or a car seat or maybe an office chair. For more than six years I have used a Roho 4 inch air cushion. I thought that was the best there was.
Even though it served me well, it continually got leaks somewhere in the air chambers. Patches don’t work but I finally discovered that a product called shoe goo would work. I had to get into the bathtub to find the leak, mark it, then dry the cushion and put a dab of shoe goo over the tiny hole wait usually overnight and all would be well for a while. I had purchased new cushion covers for about 55 dollars.
When I ran across an ad for the ERGO21 cushion, I read all the reviews and decided I would try the Sport cushion 2 1/2 inch as my first choice. I received it promptly. and put in on my wheel chair. After a couple of days, I began to wonder if it was really as comfortable as my air cushion, so I switched back. after a few hours on the air cushion, I thought NO, The ERGO21 was just as comfortable if not more so. I was pretty excited because a new Roho would cost around 400 dollars.
And would still have a very thin cover which would have to be replaced on a regular basis. While talking with Steve on the phone about his products I find a man who is passionate about solving any customer concerns to their satisfaction. I have never in my 83 years talked to anyone who cares as much about customer satisfaction as this man.
I have since used several different cushions by this company and find them all to be of exceptional quality and value. I am currently using his foot inserts, and his pillow cases, which I will review on another post.
5.0 out of 5 stars this cushion she finds without a doubt is the most comfortable, energizing cushion being marketed today By Don Douvilleon Size: Large -18″ x 17″ x 2″
I purchased this cushion for my wife who is confined to a wheelchair, this cushion she finds without a doubt is the most comfortable, energizing cushion being marketed today. Of note is the relief from pain and soreness that accompanies someone sitting for most of each day in a wheelchair. I subsequently bought an original cushion for my car and I love it.

***** Works as advertised – Ergo21 Seat Cushion
First one of the best companies I have dealt with for customer satisfaction. The designer spoke with me personally to help me find the cushions that would work best for my situation. I have had three back surgeries and both hips rebuilt. Sitting comfortably is not an easy activity. I am 56 years old, female, tall with a healthy weight and some arthritis. I now own three of these cushions. The original is perfect for hard wood or folding metal chairs. I use it when going to weekly quilting groups on the folding chairs. Before using this cushion I was limited in the time I could spend with the group due to the folding chairs and resulting pain. Now, no problem. The angled front that gives a narrower profile and is amazingly helpful with the cushion’s effectiveness.
The Ergo21 lumbar cushion stays in the car. Do not be dismayed by the shape. You will not see a convex area for your lumbar area as with most cushions, and I was skeptical when I saw the shape. That is until I tried it in my truck. Most comfortable and effective lumbar support in a vehicle I have used. The gel cushions inside mold to where your lumbar section is on your back. Because of that the lumbar support is not to high/low, too much arch or too little. Plus, it decreases the vibration from the road to your lower back. I have used it going 30 hours to Texas and back. Good road test.
The Ergo21 travel cushion I use for plane flights. The vibration plus hard seats made flying an endurance test. Sitting on the travel cushion made a major difference. No, my legs still hit the seat in front of me but at least my behind is happier. The decrease in transferred vibration to my hips and lower back was impressive. Plus, the folding feature makes it easy to tuck into a carry on and use on the airport seats when your flight is delayed, again. Visit their website. It really helps to understand the construction of this product.
5.0 out of 5 stars ***** Helps Arthritis – Ergo21 Lumbar Cushion
I’ve used the cushion now for several months and find that it helps my arthritis. I stiffen-up after sitting awhile but if I use the cushion it is much less and more comfortable too. Very happy with purchase.

*****Need a cushion to help sit? Ergo21 is the cushion to get! Highly recommended |Verified Purchase
My name is Candace and my son, Jeremy, purchased an Ergo21 LiquiCell Sports Cushion for me. I have used it at home and on planes and it was very, very helpful for my arthritic bones. The cushion was a little high for me for plane seats and some furniture, so another cushion was purchased for me. We were treated with utmost respect and prompt help. A very helpful man named Steve helped us and I plan to always have these wonderful cushions because between fibromyalgia and bursitis in my hip and arthritis in my sacroiliac joint and in my hips, these cushions save me from the severe pain I often had before I owned the Ergo21 cushions. Order a couple of them for your home and car, would be my suggestion. I’d recommend these cushions to anyone with physical difficulties such as I have. Thanks, Ergo21!

5.0 out of 5 starsI highly recommend giving it a try – Ergo21 Sleep Mattress Overlay helps with Osteoarthritis **** Size: 34″ x 34″ x 1/8″
I have been using this sleep pad now for a couple of weeks. I have serious back and hip issues because of osteoarthritis and from the very first night, there was a measurable difference. The extreme pain and stiffness I was experiencing getting out of bed in the morning is very much improved. I look forward to
getting into bed at night, because you can feel the comfort immediately. As a bonus, it seems to promote sounder sleep. At first glance, It may seem a bit pricey but it is well worth the investment because that’s what it is, an investment in your health and comfort. I highly recommend giving it a try.. An amazing product! By Anne on Amazon
Always consult with a doctor or your nurse about your symptoms.
Ergo21 has a complete line of Cushions for all body types, weights and applications!
Change positions often and spread your weight evenly. In chairs and wheelchairs shift your weight often. Certain chair exercises can keep the circulation going.
I wish us all a happy, comfortable journey cruising Planet Earth on our Magic Bus 🙂

Here’s to great adventures! Cheers!
