WHAT IS A DONUT SEAT CUSHION?
Donut seat cushion (aka donut pillow) is a type of orthopedic pillow with a hole in the middle which is used for sitting in office chairs, wheelchairs, in cars while driving or even travelling.
The shape of the pillow resembles a donut which determined the name of this specific type of seat cushion.
There are several types of donut pillows and materials they are made of differ. However, a typical donut pillow is made out of foam that adjusts to the shape of your body once you sit on it.
Orthopedic donut pillows typically have special contours and indentations in the areas that require most attention – perineum, tailbone/coccyx and the area affected by hemorrhoids.
You can also use an alternative cushion – see how to use a wedge pillow seat cushion.
WHAT IS A DONUT CUSHION USED FOR?
Donut pillows are used for alleviating symptoms that arise from certain conditions including hemorrhoids, pain during pregnancy, strain from sitting, tailbone pain, coccyx pressure etc.
Orthopedic donut pillows can also be used for back pain relief and additional support which is essential during long periods of sitting. Certain seat cushions can have a positive effect on the posture helping it to relieve tense muscles and seat in more comfort.
You can use a donut pillow in order to reduce existing symptoms or to prevent them in the first place (for example, you might already be “feeling your back” but it doesn’t hurt just yet).
HOW DO YOU USE A DONUT SEAT CUSHION?
Using a donut pillow is not rocket science. All you need to do is just sit on it and make sure that your workspace is adjusted according to your size, shape and requirements. Let the donut pillow support your tailbone, back and other crucial points that will allow you to feel comfortable even during long periods of sitting.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN THE BEST DONUT PILLOW?
If you are looking for a quality donut pillow for hemorrhoids or another condition mentioned above, then try to find a pillow that fits you well. Here are some other characteristics you’d want to look for.
1. Quality Foam Support. Most of donut pillows are made out of cheaper memory foam that stops holding its shape after a number of uses. Unfortunately, there no way to tell whether the foam is quality and will hold its shape with time so you’d have to rely on reviews and price.
Having said this, even absolute best most comfortable foam pillows will lose their shape at some point in time because of the accumulated pressure and weight they have been exposed to over time.
2. Orthopedic Features That Fit. Manufacturers of cushions often try to fit certain contours and indentations in certain key areas (e.g. tailbone) in order to help reduce pressure and strain from long periods of sitting while providing pain relief and comfort. As a customer you need to make sure that the pillows that you are trying out will actually fit your body weight, size and shape. This is important if you want cushions to work and offer relief and comfort you are looking for.
3. Non-Skid Surface. In order to be comfortable, offer support and quality, the pillow that you will end up buying needs to have a cover with non-slip surface. This surface is typically made out of rubber material (e.g. dots and lines) and prevents the pillow from easily falling down from the chair or any other seat you are using it on.
4. Machine-Washable Cover. Even though washing foam is not an option, you should still be able to wash the cover your seat pillow comes with. These days most of the covers are washable but…not all of them are machine-washable. Make sure that the foam donut that you get will have that box ticked! Ideally the material that the cover is made from should also allow for air circulation.
5. Price. Don’t consider cushions with lower price to provide same level of comfort and durability as you would expect other cushions that have a higher price. Premium cushions tend to offer better support for the critical parts like your back and just last longer.
