The Pudendal Channel Cushion may help people who suffer from discomfort or pain when sitting. This could be due to:
- Pudendal Neuralgia (PN)
- Pudendal Nerve Entrapment (PNE)
- Surgical mesh complications
- Perineal pain
- Testicular pain
- Damaged coccyx
- After having a baby
Symptoms may be:
- Loss of genital sensation
- Pain associated with urinating
A channel cut-out runs along the middle of the cushion. This helps relieve pressure when sitting.
The buttocks sit on the firm sides of the foam. The sides of the foam have convolutions on the top to help soften the cushion. This also helps blood flow under the buttocks. The foam in the middle is softer to help pain control.
We include two removeable inner pieces of foam with this product. These can be inserted in the central channel section to make the gap narrower. To do this, simply remove the cover. Replacing the cover will keep the side pieces in place. If you need to, you can glue the side pieces in place.
If the inside channel is not wide enough for you, there is an easy modification you can make. Cut off the first or second sections on both sides of the inside of the channel with scissors.
It is also possible to cut the small ridges in the middle of the cushion if they cause irritation.
Sewn to the underside of the cover is special Miracle Grip rubber material to help stop the cushion sliding.
One corner of the Pudendal Channel Cushion has a Carry Loop.
Another general purpose cushions to consider is the Pressure Relief Cushion with Airmesh Cover (sold separately).
