A: Hi Roy,
Thank you for inquiring with IndeMedical.com!
The Wheelchair Impact Guards are designed to protect the paint on the front frame of your wheelchair from chipping. The padding is only 1/4" thick. From the sounds of it your legs are spread and pressing against the chair leaving marks or even wounds on your legs? If this is the case there may be some positioning issues with your cushion and or wheelchair. We can find something for you now, but I would recommend working with a local Seating & Positioning Specialist who can help ensure your sitting properly.
If you don't have one we can help, please email me offline with your city/state and I'll help find the right person locally.
