IN hospitals anti-decubitum skins are used to avoid blood stagnation of
persons which are lying in the same position for long time. They used to
be lamb skins (with fur). Now they are synthetic. If you pad your seat
with one inch foam and adjust one of these synthetic skins under your
bottom you should have solved the problem. In spite of it being furry,
the skin has never bothered me in warm climates, at least not more than
contact with close cell foam.

Good luck ,Stefano
