ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a study which aimed to determine the best adjustable cushion for the maintenance of normal sitting balance by stroke patients in wheelchairs from among gel cushions, air cushions, and spongy cushions. It is mentioned that stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and 50 percent of stroke survivors experience physical and functional disability, and 79 percent patients either require treatment or die within 10 years.
