There is a cushion called a Roho cushion that gave my dad relief from the pain of sitting when he lost so much weight. Ask your Dad's doctor to prescribe it because, after some hassles, we got his medicare hmo to pay for it. Here's a link. http://www.rohoinc.com/medical/faq.jsp Also, the air mattress gave him more comfort than an eggcrate mattress. Whatever you get, he does have to shift weight often and someone should be checking his skin frequently to avoid bedsores, which can become infected and dangerous. Good luck.
