The resident commented that
the Silver Care Basic was much
more comfortable than her previous
cushion allowing her to sit longer without
pain. The Silver Care Basic with the Position
Pro insert allowed for improved positioning that resulted in improved sitting tolerance and functional mobility in the wheelchair. The wash-ability of the Silver Care Basic creates a more sanitary seat with no problems with odors.
