Coccyx Cushions for Christmas!

Posted by Francis Whitehead on November 8, 2023

Text reads "Coccyx Cushions for Christmas!" with graphics of a grandma and a sledge on a snowy hilltop, and a coccyx wedge below it

Halloween went in a flash, Bonfire Night left just as quickly, so you know what that means… it’s time for Christmas to take centre stage! On every ad break you’ll come across in between Gogglebox or The Chase, chances are you’ve already seen some fantastically festive ads.

Once the Coca-Cola lorries and Kevin the Carrot are on your screens soundtracked by a slow piano ballad cover of a Beatles tune, it can only mean one thing, Christmas is upon us!

Speaking of slow piano covers of Beatles tunes, this year’s offering from Amazon is no different. 



Amazon describe it as “a story about life-long friendships, showing how joyful moments are made even more special when they’re shared with those you love.”

And true that certainly is!

This advert follows a group of 3 elderly friends who have known each other for all their lives, looking fondly across a snow-crested landscape as children frolic and play.

This invokes a feeling of yearning in one of the grannies, and with a click of her fingers, she’s ordered a fantastically useful mobility aid for her and her friends: a coccyx cushion.

Coccyx cushions offer support and relief, making your hips positioned higher up than your knees, taking the strain away from your back. This can be a lifesaver for those with mobility issues, and the advert shows the difference they can make!

Within seconds, the three ladies are sledging down the hills at a thunderous pace, laughing riotously as they are taken back to the glory days of their youth.

We at Ability Superstore absolutely adore this advert, and if you’d like to get the same help these grannies got, we’re proud to let you know we stock a staggering range of coccyx cushions and wedges.

Should this year be a white Christmas, we’ve got you covered for sledging fun!

Deluxe Pressure Relief Coccyx Cushion with Gel

This is one of our coccyx cushions that we think is a replica of the one featured in the advert, the Deluxe Pressure Relief Coccyx Cushion with Gel! It features a black cotton air knit cover and a gel layer underneath to keep you cool during extended use, all the while reducing strain on your spine.

Why not get a few for you and your friends so you can re-enact the 3 grannies?

The Coccyx Cushion is a mobility aid designed for use with a wheelchair to support your spine and make your independent living more comfortable. The cushion is made of polyurethane foam and has a soft cover to conceal the foam and increase comfort. The fabric is soft, whilst also being hardwearing, so you can use it as frequently as you like and be confident that it will stay supportive and comfortable day after day.

At just £14.99, this is a brilliant budget offering.

The crème de la crème of coccyx cushions, without a doubt, is this Harley Designer Wedge. Its specially moulded construction offers the finest comfort imaginable for years to come. What’s more, it’s available with or without a coccyx comfort if you just want an extremely good sitting experience!

For an impressive present for someone you love (or yourself!), look no further.

So, if you’d like to go sledging down the hilltops, or would just like to sit in comfort this Christmas, don’t forget about our coccyx cushions!

What’s more, from buying from us you’ll be supporting small independent businesses this Christmas, and we’re known for shipping just as fast (if not, faster) than the big retailers such as Amazon.

So, join in the festive fun today!
