Custom chair cushion to protect caning of Chinese Chippendale faux bam

Anyone know if a seat cushion can be made to protect the caning of a chair like this? I’ve heard it can be done by making a cushion with a board on the bottom (inside the cushion cover). The edge of the board rests on the wood frame edge of the chair and supports the person sitting in the chairs rather than the caning taking the weight.

This chair has a rather thin wood frame around the caning. I’m wondering if a seat like I’ve described could be made and would work in this case. Anyone know?

I love the chair, and would like it be fully usable rather than just an ornament. I’d like to figure out how to make it functional and protect the caning.
