Relief Donut Ring Cushion is a high density latex donut shaped pain relief seat cushion that takes pressure away from sensive areas.

Our orthopaedic Latex Foam Donut Ring Cushion has been specially designed to relieve or eliminate pressure on sensitive areas when seated. However, sitting for long periods on a low quality ring cushion is not recommended as it can interfere with the blood flow to the area causing potential pressure problems.
This pressure relieving donut ring cushion allows the user to sit for longer periods as it is made from latex foam rubber which rapidly responds to weight movement and reduces interface pressure on the body.
Regardless of the quality of your cushion, it is important not to sit for too long in one position.

Pure and Natural Latex from the Rubber tree
The Ring Cushion is produced from pure natural latex - harvested by tapping the milk (sap) of the small tropical tree Heavea Braziliensis. No Chemicals are needed to stabilise the rubber, and the intrinsic colour is also retained. Latex is bio-degradable, naturally!
Our latex is non-toxic and contaminant-free, its natural properties inhibit bacterial and fungal growth,
and it provides an inhospitable environment for dust mites. Latex is a renewable and sustainable resource.
Latex Relief Ring Cushion: Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a cushion which is designed for post-operative use?
What is the difference between a latex, urethane foam & inflatable donut ring cushions?
Why should I wait the latex donut cushion?
Q. Do you have a cushion which is designed for post-operative use?
A. Yes, the Keyhole Cushion and the Latex Relief Ring Cushion are recommended for post-natal or post operative discomfort, haemorrhoids, bruised coccyx and other painful afflictions involving sensitive areas. Both these designs leave the affected area relatively free of contact and therefore pressure-free.
Q. Explain the difference between a latex donut cushion, a foam ring cushion and an inflatable ring cushion?
A. Natural latex donut cushion has excellent compression and diffusion properties. (Latex is from the rubber tree).
Some urethane foam versions of the ring cushion tend to collapse under the body's load.
A blow-up version of the ring cushion is a poor substitute.
The problem with inflatable donut cushions is that there is no pressure dispersion (nothing to disperse pressure into!!), and it is not a stable platform. You wobble!
And you also sweat as it acts as a seal to air, whereas latex and/or foam does 'breathe' to some extent.
Q. Why should I wait to get a latex donut cushion from you when I can get one instantly from a retail outlet?
A. If you want the best available donut cushion, made out of natural material that will hold its shape, and be stable and supportive ... you will have to wait. Because it is not widely available at retail because retailers prefer the small size of the uninflated blow up.
