I tried the top cushions to prevent and treat pressure sores: Ease Cushion Vs. Roho Cushion

Bed sores or pressure sores are prevalent causes of pain and discomfort that often go unnoticed or untreated. People with medical conditions that limit their mobility or cause them to spend most of their time in a bed or chair, such as spinal cord injuries or old age, are most at risk of bedsores. The foundational cause of pressure sores is a lack of movement. This persistent pressure in one area prevents proper blood flow.

Though these sores are troublesome and painful, there are ways to combat them. You might go to see a physical therapist to work on your mobility or a dermatologist who can work to minimize the effects on the skin. Though these treatments are helpful, there is only one main one that aims to provide long-lasting comfort and is preventative rather than treat it after the problem has already occurred: seat cushions. 

The market is lacking in accessible and inclusive technology for people in need of extra support with injuries or disabilities. Luckily, two top seat cushion brands — Roho and Ease Cushion — are changing the industry. But, which one is the best for preventing and treating pressure sores? 


Ease Cushion’s HAPT Technology

Ok, you might be thinking a cushion is a cushion… wrong. To effectively prevent pressure sores and provide optimal comfort, a cushion must be equipped with advanced technology that supports blood flow, rather than being merely a soft surface that causes the body to sink and increases pressure. This is especially true for customers in need of extra support due to extensive injuries. 

Ease Cushion utilizes Horizontal Alternating Pressure Technology (HAPT) technology for dynamic pressure redistribution, which is crucial for spinal cord injury patients and seniors. This constant change in pressure promotes healing in existing sores and prevents pressure ulcers from forming. This wave-like motion redistributed pressure points, but also felt relaxing with its gentle massaging. 

The Roho Cushion also has air cells that inflate to adjust pressure, but this is done manually via an air pump. I found that this becomes tiresome and takes away from the benefits of having a cushion to alleviate stress off of you. And for patients with extensive injuries, this is not accessible nor inclusive. 


When looking for a product worth buying, convenience is at the top of my list. Convenience when it comes to seat cushions means fully reaping all of the benefits. 

Ease Cushion offers adjusting cushion settings with a user-friendly app that enhances user convenience, especially for those with mobility issues. And as someone who isn’t exactly tech-savvy, I can attest it’s easy to use and approachable. The app felt like a built-in best friend with its personable features, such as customizable cushion settings that directly address your pain levels. 

Roho Cushion was not as convenient. It requires manual inflation and adjustment. If you’re in pain, the last thing you want is to be pumping up a seat cushion. 


Roho Quadtro Select Low Profile Cushion

It’s easy for a cushion to become deflated when you’re constantly sitting on it, so if you’re in the market for a new cushion, durability is a must. Roho and Ease Cushion are the top brands on the market, so I found that they both offer durability components. Ultimately, I had to look at the construction to evaluate. 

Ease Cushion is built with premium PU foam with an in-built electrical air pump and silicone switch for durability. These high-grade materials allow for long-lasting durability and cleanliness, a significant advantage for users needing consistent support. Plus, it offers a 12-hour battery life to last you all day. 

Roho Cushion was washable, fulfilling that hygienic aspect. The cushion itself is also repairable/patchable if it were to wear down. Roho’s models offer waterproof materials. Since Roho is washable, it allows you to clean any spills or messes up, but this takes time away from the cushion use. If you don’t have a backup cushion, this means a time period of uncomfortable pain. 

The waterproof and incontinence-proof features of the Ease Cushion provide robust protection against spills and incontinence, ensuring comfort in various situations. The specially threaded covers make this possible. 


As mentioned, the cushion will most likely be with you everywhere you go, so it’s important that it can travel along with you. Both cushions were portable. However, I found that the Ease Cushion was more lightweight and easier to transfer. 

Portability and convenience go hand-in-hand, so Ease Cushion’s ability to adjust on its own rather than Roho’s manual cushion made it the better travel companion. 


Ease Cushion

I was pleasantly surprised by the extra capabilities seat cushions can have. Ease Cushion specifically offered innovative features I have not seen anywhere else. The cushion has an optional sensor kit for blood flow monitoring. This plus the backed Air Force research adds an extra layer of innovation and reliability to the product

I appreciated Roho’s focus on pressure sore prevention, but when dealing with spinal cord injuries or more complicated issues, there are more factors to take into consideration beyond prevention. 

The Ultimate Winner… Ease Cushion 

Health conditions and debilitating injuries might have you feeling like society has turned a blind eye to you, but these two brands create a market where you’re the focal point. Ultimately, Ease Cushion fully grasped the hardships of those needing a seat cushion and created a product that is accessible, long-lasting, convenient, and helpful. It goes beyond just prevention and works to create a more comfortable day-to-day life for those who are chair-bound.
