Seat cushions

Seat cushions to aid getting out of a chair.

One of my elderly ladies got out of her chair so easily today and I noticed she had a Permapad
cushion in it. These clever foam filled blocks are comfortable and add 4 inches in height to the level of the chair. They have a waterproof cover and are also ideal for wheelchairs.

This saves straining when getting out of a chair and the danger of “falling into” it when sitting down again.

The Permapad has a contoured cushion surface to provide a greater weight distribution and a more comfortable support surface, whilst the air channels help reduce the build-up of heat and moisture.The cover can be completely removed and washed at up to 80CMaximum user weight: 180kg (17 stone)


  • Waterproof
  • Polyurethane Cover
  • Length: 432mm 17 inches
  • Width: 432mm 17 inches
  • Depth: 100mm 4 inches

The Permapad sells for £34.99 with P&P of £1.99, far cheaper than buying a new taller chair.
