Does anybody have a recommendation for a seat cushion that would work on a sofa or recliner? My tail bone has started developing bed sores, I guess it would be called, since I’m always sitting on my behind! Anything I’ve looked at on line is really suggested for desk chairs or harder seats. I could use a recommendation for an adjustable bed topper, too. Ideas?

My husband bought me a"Purple" brand cushion.
It's not that great to be honest. Especially for the $.
Dang! That was actually one I went ahead and gave my email address to thinking it might be good. Great feedback. I have looked and looked and have found nothing that truly strikes me.
It might work for you though.
Hey, you can’t do that! Haha. It’s like the weather guy saying we could see some rain or we may not. I always love when it’s such a clear forecast. Just kidding. I know what you mean. I’m just, so I believe, different than many. I will be hard on whatever I get because I can’t sit still. Of course, maybe if something was comfortable enough, I would. I doubt it, though, because of my spasticity.
For your bed, you may want a 'bed or mattress topper' to cushion your bed. Most stores sell them at various prices. If you are handy, you may be able to pick up some foam at a local hardware store, and cut it to the same size that you want to replace. I looked online and couldn't find much except ordering custom cushions: foamorder.com/cushions/cust...
Handy is one thing I am NOT...or talented...or artistic... That’s a great idea, though. The only place I am bothered on the bed is right where it bends. There is a little bump because of the mattress bending that hits me right in the sore spot. A mattress topper that would be flexible and cushiony would be ideal.
Is there a way to rotate your mattress so that one part doesn't hit your sore spot? I rotate my queen size mattress about every 6 months. And I know when it's time because my bed starts to get uncomfortable. Once I rotate, things feel better
Look for Memory Foam. (I'm speaking as someone who tested in at mattress factory for 21 years...)
I have an ancient memory foam (ish) pillow I just dug out and am sitting on it. This feels much better. Thank you! I’m going to see if it will work in bed later, too, but I may need to buy something made for that. A memory foam topper, perhaps?
Sure. And the thicker the better.
Another thing you might want to try is convoluted (egg-crate) foam. It helps with circulation if you're going to be in bed for an extended time.
All joking aside, we got a My Pillow mattress topper. It totally changed our comfort level. Be careful about dealing with bed sores. They can be a real challenge to heal, once started. I hope you find a really comfortable and effective seat pad that distributes your weight better.
I don't know if it will help you but when my dad broke his tail bone he used a pillow that looked like a donut. My sister and I teased him about his donut pillow especially after he used our magic markers to decorate it to look like a decorated donut. He found his at a medical specialty store.
I just did a quick internet search and they are called either donut rings or donut cushions.
I have a cushion that I use for my hard chairs called 'Miracle Bamboo Cushion'. It works for me, Tinker-Belle
