Ride Custom 2 Cushion
The Ride Custom 2 Cushion combines with the advanced RideWorks scanning/ordering technology to create a cushion like no other. The Ride Custom 2 Cushion offers superior skin and postural care in a comfortable, lightweight and simple design. The cushion, made specifically to match each individual’s unique shape, helps decrease long-term skin risk and aids in sitting stability for improved functional performance. Well-suited for the traditional custom seating user, the Custom 2 also has unique features that make it a great match for active users and growing children.
The RideWorks scanning technology allows for custom moulds to be taken and ordered much quicker than traditional custom seating options. The Ride technology also allows for custom seating to be much smaller in depth, eliminating the chunky seating commonly associated with custom seating. Our GTK Consultants are Ride Certified, having completed Ride Design’s comprehensive wheelchair seating class to be able to prescribe Ride’s custom cushions and backrests.
Weighing in at about 800g for an average 16 x 16″ size, the Custom 2 Cushion is a fraction of the weight of other cushions.
Options for enhanced comfort
The base of the Ride Custom 2 is softer than that of the original Custom Cushion. In addition, the cushion cover can be upgraded with Soft Fit options of either two or three layers of spacer mesh fabric.
Ride CAM wedges (included) can be used to adjust the cushion contours to accommodate weight change, tissue atrophy, and postural change. Optional well inserts can be added for gentle support to bony prominences and to maintain a high level of microclimate management.
Protects skin and enhances posture
Ride’s patented and evidence-based mechanism of support helps to enhance sitting stability and performance, while reducing the dangerous forces of pressure and shear from at-risk bony prominences.
Aids in temperature control
The cushion contours and spacer mesh fabric cover promotes airflow to help keep the sitter dry and comfortable in virtually any climate. In addition, an optional Ventilation Channel, specifically located for each shape, can be placed at the position of best opportunity for air flow.
The cushion can be grown in width and length at a fraction of the cost of a new cushion. Scanned shape capture files are retained at Ride Designs for future needs.
