Designing a Healthy Custom Cushion

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

In the past, we’ve talked about the benefits of foam cushioning in sofas, mattresses, and chairs. The right foam cushion can provide comfort, pain relief, and posture correction. Hearing this might make you eager to purchase a custom cushion for your office chair. With that in mind, it’s important to know what to look for in a custom chair cushion before placing your custom cushion order.

First, it’s best to get the right measurements for your chair before doing anything else. It is much more difficult to work with a supplier if you don’t know the exact measurements you need to make your cushion fit. Second, you should also have an idea of the type of foam you want to use. Different types of foam have different levels of firmness, so be sure to choose the one that’s most comfortable for you. For example, HD36 foam has a medium level of firmness, while Super Soft foam is much more malleable. Lastly, if you can, it might be a good idea to trace an ergonomic design that provides enough space for relieving pressure on your coccyx.
