Aylio Orthopedic Coccyx Donut Seat Cushion Review - Ask Doctor Jo
Hey everybody, it's Doctor Jo. It's product review time again. The folks at Aylio sent me another cushion. This one is really neat because it's got a hole in it. So it's a donut cushion. It's got a really long name, it's the Aylio Orthopedic Coccyx Donut Seat Cushion with Contour Design.
And that's what I think makes it stand out. If you can see here, it's got some contours in the front, a little contour in the back. And it works really nicely because this is where your legs go so you don't end up rolling around, and then this is where that Coccyx area goes to take the pressure off of it. Just like all their products, what I really like the most is that it's nice and soft. So it feels comfortable on your body. It's got a nice firm foam that doesn't squish down and then not keep it's shape, so it keeps it's shape very nicely. And then also you can take the cover off and wash it if you need to without risk messing up the inside part. Just in case it gets dirty or soiled.
The donut cushions are a nice way to protect the bottom area for many different things like if you've got hemorrhoids, if you've got pressure ulcers which is really big, you don't want to keep that pressure on there so by sitting on this it helps take the pressure off and allows those pressure sores to heal. But also if you have a coccyx fracture, those of you that have one you know that it's very very painful. So if you can sit on something and take the pressure off here and the pressure off here, you can sit for a lot longer without just getting very uncomfortable and having to get up and move. So let's put it in the chair and sit on it so you can see what it looks like.
So if you put it in a chair, you want the small contour to be in the back and the two big contours to be in the front where your legs go. And then you just kind of get it situated. Again what I like about it is it's firm, but comfortable.
So then you don't sink right in and then it defeats the purpose of it holding it's shape to protect those areas on your body that need the pressure off of the areas. What I also like about it is just like with the other Aylio cushion is that when I sit on it, I feel like I need to sit upright. So it's good in the sense of back pain as well if you start slouching a little bit, it doesn't feel quite right, so it makes you get in that upright position. So it's very ver nice and comfortable. I feel like it's a good size as well.
Some of those donut cushions that you see, just the generic ones, are really small, and I feel like maybe you might kind of wobble off of it a little bit. But I feel very stable and safe sitting on this cushion. So overall I really do like the design, it's very comfortable, I think it would last a very long time. Again if you get something on it, you can unzip it and then throw it in the washer without messing anything else up.
