If these many good suggestions do not work well enough, another option might be to get velcro strips from a fabric store and stick/glue one side to the wheelchair and the other to a corresponding place on the cushion. The nice things about velcro are that it would still be easy to take the cushion out and it should not hurt if you use the wheelchair without the cushion (although your clothes might stick to it:eek: )
I have not done this, but I have used velcro for a lot of things.

There seems always more to say, doesn’t there?!!
One other important thing that I did was to consider the fact that some people have more long term vision and more ability to troubleshoot or “think outside of the box”. My immediate boss/supervisor does not have these as strong suits, so I went above to people that do to get support and then went back able to say to the immediate supervisor that I had talked with others (name dropping–it is my life!!!) who thought X, Y, and Z were pretty good options. I told all that I was trying to find ways to help the system be better and that I was trying to get lots of opinions–as backup to not having feelings hurt. I was really careful to not say I did not like something, but raised suggestions that an alternative might work better and “wouldn’t it be worth a trial”. I talked a lot about temporary.
A good friend (my best friend before this illness-she could not cope with the changes in my life) used to tell me that you need to market your career as aggressively as people market products and to always think of ways to “spin” to the positive–not stepping on others, but reinforcing why something might be good for the system as well as be (incidentally!) good for you in this time of challenges. She often said to present to bosses subtly things that would be good for them (if you did all the hard work but they could get/take some (most) of the credit! Sometimes it is better to work than to get all the credit for it–thinking about how it helps others.
Anyway, got to go work! WithHope
