To me I think, the most important thing, is to really watch your client’s skin. You got to really be diligent about making sure no sores appear, that they’re well taken care of, you know, especially on your behind, because you’re sitting on it all day long. I have a Roho cushion and I’ve got to make sure, you know, that it’s just right. You have to check it, like, if I was a quadriplegic, you would have to really have someone checking every day to make sure you’re not getting break-down of your skin, because once your skin breaks down, it’s more internal than external. So when, when it shows on the surface, it’s actually the interior is broken down and it’s just coming out, and you’ll be months, you know, laying on your stomach trying to get that to heal up.
