Best Prostate Cushions 2021

Thursday, 11 March 2021  |  Paul

Rest and relaxation go hand in hand but when sitting down causes you pain, you can't possibly relax. Pain during sitting can be caused by a variety of issues and conditions, but thankfully a purpose-designed cushion redistributes pressure to relieve pain and prevent formation of sores or ulcers. 

What Is a Prostate Cushion?

  • Post-natal pain

Why Not Just Use a Regular Cushion? 

Using a regular cushion might initially reduce some of the discomfort and friction, however this can quickly become insufficient. A regular cushion allows for little air-flow, often exacerbating the development of pressure sores, as well impacting your comfort. No matter whether you're recovering from surgery, suffer from conditions such as haemorrhoids, or if you're at risk of pressure ulcers, a prostate cushion is an incomparably better choice than a regular cushion.
