It’s product review time again and folks at Ergo21 sent me their Coccyx Cushion. So let’s get started.
As always, what I love about the Ergo21 Cushions, in general, is that they have the LiquiCell technology. That means that this seat cushion has fluid-filled membranes. And there are four of them inside the cushion. And what LiquiCell technology does is it makes it nice and smooth for when you’re sitting on it. Because of the fluid, it’s always just slightly moving a little bit.
This seat cushion is ideal if you have pressure sores or if you have a lot of pain. You can’t feel the movement of the fluid, but it’s actually keeping your body moving just a little bit. That means you don’t have that pressure on top or that shearing action that tends to break down your skin. It’s really nice that it’s actually used in hospital beds across the country. It works really well to keep your skin healthy and keep that circulation in your bottom when you’re sitting a lot.
The great thing about the Coccyx cushions is that they have this little opening that you put back behind you so you have that space for your coccyx. Let’s say maybe you have a fracture or you have some sciatica, you don’t have to worry because it takes the pressure off of your coccyx.
But what’s really nice about this Ergo21 Coccyx Cushion that might not be the same as other Coccyx cushions is you can actually then turn it around. You can use it where the indentation is in front and just use it as a regular cushion. You will still get the effects of those LiquiCell membranes and it’s just nice to keep yourself comfortable. You can sit in an upright position and not have any type of skin breakdown. So you can actually kind of use it as a combination cushion where you might not be able to use that with other cushions.
Ergo21 Coccyx Cushion comes in 3 different sizes, as you can see in their official website. They have the regular size and it has weight support up to about 150 pounds. It’s going to be for smaller chairs, smaller wheelchairs, and maybe a smaller person.
But if you get a little bit past that 150 pounds, then you probably want to go to the large which goes up to 200 pounds. So that’s going to be more like a regular sized wheelchair, a regular chair, and other things like that. If you’re smaller, you can still use a large size like if you’re sitting in a bigger chair, you might want to get the larger one.
And then they have the extra-large, which goes beyond 200 pounds. This is something for you if you’re a little bit larger person or if you have a larger chair like those executive chairs that you sit in at work. You probably want to get the extra-large and it will hold up to that extra weight if you need it. It’s really nice that you have the options.
Again, you can use any size one even if you’re a smaller person, so if you weigh less than 150 pounds, like me, but you’re sitting in a big chair, you might want to end up getting the bigger one so it covers the whole chair.
I’ll tell you a little bit more about it. The bottom of Ergo21 Coccyx Cushion has this kind of gripping material. So once you put it in with the opening towards the back, it stays put. So once you sit on it, if you tend to wiggle a little bit in your chair, it stays in place. It’s not going to go anywhere which is really nice because sometimes when those cushions slip out of the way, the hole on it moves, and then you’re not having that open space that you need. It’s very comfortable.
Again like I said, it takes the pressure off of those pressure point areas. And that fluid in those membranes has that slight movement that you can’t feel, but it keeps that circulation going so then you don’t have a breakdown of the skin.
It’s nice because it’s not pushing against your knee to cut off pressure here as well. It’s nice and comfortable that it makes you sit up tall in that nice neutral position. And one more of the great things about this, as I said earlier, is if you don’t really have any coccyx issues, or you did for a while and you got better with this, you can turn it around and then use it as just a regular cushion.
So then you again have those liquicell membranes in there to keep your bottom safe and comfortable while you’re sitting and doing your work. So it works very well.
