Hi everyone-
I have been trying to find some kind of breathable cover for my PALS friend for his wheel chair pads. Every time I hug him he is soaked with sweat and I know he must be uncomfortable - I have continued to search medical supply co. online but strike out --- any recommendations of products that would increase circulation - at least for his back?
I appreciate any advice that can be offered! thanks!:-D

OK - I went to a car assessory shop and they had a seat cover made of lamb-skin and they also had a seat "pad" which had multiple "air-bubble" spots to increase air circulation and change up pressure points on the back and bottom. If you had to pick one which would you pick?:mrgreen:

Sorry Time!

I think if you would post under the "People with ALS" forum, you may get a response to your question.

I don't know what to tell you. Other CALS may have experience with this.
