ROHO and Permobil have joined together to evolve Permobil’s Corpus positioning cushion to feature an optional ROHO insert for added comfort, support, and skin protection. The cushion combines the shape matching ability of the ROHO DRY FLOATATION® technology with Permobil’s ergonomic design. By adjusting the amount of air, the cushion can be tuned to match the individual’s shape. The improved cushion design enhances the already revolutionary Corpus seating system, providing you with the superior skin protection that ROHO is known for. Our ergonomic positioning cushion is contoured to provide pelvic stability and improved lower extremity alignment. The lateral edges of the cushion accommodate removable seat wedges and help provide control in the seated position. The specially-designed ROHO insert supports the ischial tuberosities and the posterior shelf of the greater trochanters for those clients who are at high risk of breakdown. Cleaning requires just soap and water, and the specially designed cushion cover is also machine washable for added convenience.

What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Through the built-in contours of an offloading style cushion, the therapist can help align and stabilize the spine, pelvis, and LEs to allow the pressure and shear forces to be transferred from a smaller surface area to a greater surface area. The contours needed for offloading pressure are:

Offloading vs Immersion: Wheelchair Cushions for Pressure Injuries

Part 4 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2, Part 3.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

The rule of thumb to minimize peak pressures with the goal of reducing the risk of or healing an existing pressure injury is: remove pressure from a small surface area that cannot withstand constant pressure or shear forces and REDISTRIBUTE it across areas of greater surface area. For example, we can redistribute pressure from the ITs to the femur and as much of the gluteal surface as possible. And we achieve this through either offloading or immersion.
One method is not necessarily better than the other; a therapist must understand what the benefits and considerations are of all methods and choose the best option for each patient. Utilize cushions that through their construction offload or immerse, or combine the principles.
Let’s review in detail the principle of offloading.

The Benefits of Standing for a Wheelchair User
