I lead an extremely active life working at two jobs as well as Uni, and I have amazing friends I love hanging out with so my social life is constantly on the go as well, but unfortunately due to this pressure sore EVERYTHING has been put on hold again while I get treated in hospital. It might sound strange but I really don't care about being spinal injured anymore, I never really have ... I just want to get on with my life but I have not been able to do so because of this darned pressure sore.
I cannot perform pressure lifts by myself, and as I am so active I don't have the time to do a pressure lift every hour as I have been told I should. Hence when I saw that a cushion existed which could mean that I could get up while my pressure sort heals, and that it could significantly reduce the chance of a pressure sore recurring I was over the freaking moon.
So my question is has anyone else got or tried the Airpulse PK, does anyone know someone else who uses one and what do you do if you want to get them serviced if you live anywhere in the States that is not near the company, or anyone else from other countries, what do you do if you need help servicing it?
ANY experiences with this cushion I would greatly appreciate hearing before deciding to buy one. I know they are expensive but it is much more taxing on me psychologically to be trapped in a hospital bed when I have a beautiful life out there waiting for me to live it. I'm going to consult my doctor as well as a physiotherapist, but in my mind is the most important thing is to talk to people who have experienced these cushions
