We love to hear from people who have questions or comments about dealing with disabilities. It’s all about helping one another.
A reader asked about the blue foam you see next to my head. Her mother has ALS and is “bone on wheelchair” and in discomfort.
What you see in the picture is egg crate pad foam rubber. It comes as a bed pad and you need to cut it to use it. It also comes in various thicknesses. I am currently using a 2 inch thick padding, but I am going to try a 4 inch thick padding to see if it adds greater comfort. This product can be found on various places on the internet. Just Google “blue egg crate foam” and you’ll find it. Thanks for reaching out!
