Rosacea sufferers require a certain type of wheelchair upholstery in order to prevent their skin from becoming inflamed whenever they are seated in a wheelchair.

In order to prevent this type of skin condition from flaring up on a chair, it is important to get cushions or upholstery that are hypoallergenic and that are anti-bacterial to prevent any sort of condition from developing.

Dealing with Rosacea on a Wheelchair

Symptoms of Rosacea and Wheelchair Seating

When being seated long term in a wheelchair there is more of a chance that the user will develop skin pressure sores which can be very hard to prevent once they are tender and red.

People who are affected by this condition are more likely to have dryness and redness on their skin; this is why they are so vulnerable to the seating materials on a wheelchair.

Although moisturizer and certain steroid creams can be used to prevent rosacea flare ups, it is very important to have the correct seating material available for the user.  Although females over the age of 60 are the prime candidates for this type of condition, it can also develop in younger people who have to use a wheelchair to get around.
