This cushion offers an optimal environment for individuals with skin/soft tissue integrity issues.

The cellular design and the soft pliable material allow the individual to be immersed into the cushion for maximum pressure redistribution, while decreasing friction and shear. The simple adjustment allows the cushions to fit the shape of the individual, minimizing tissue deformation and maximizing blood flow.

This cushion is most effective for individuals who:

  • have a history of skin/soft tissue breakdown and/or any stage pressure injury (including deep tissue injury), skin grafts, and/or myocutananeous flap surgery.
  • currently have skin/soft tissue breakdown and/or any stage pressure injury (including deep tissue injury).
  • may be at risk for skin/soft tissue breakdown and/or deep tissue injury.
  • have normal or impaired sensation.
  • require accommodation of pelvic asymmetry, up to approximately 3in/7.5cm.
Adjustable

Cushion is adjustable to individual’s shape and weight. Cushion is adjustable to changes in individual’s position over time.

Lightweight

Easy to handle and carry, at just 3.25lbs./1.5kg (based on size 1R99C) Varies by size.

Washable

Cushion can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Cover is machine washable.

Repairable

The flame-resistant, black neoprene (not made with natural rubber latex) cushion can be patched or repaired to extend its use.

Skin Protection

Based on forty years of research and client experience, our patented ROHO DRY FLOATATION® Technology provides unparalleled performance in facilitating blood flow by fitting, matching and tracking the shape of a person.

Shape Fitting

The unique cellular design of the HIGH PROFILE allows the cushion to constantly conform and track movements of the body.  The simple adjustment and conformity of the cells accommodates and meets the unique skin/soft tissue integrity needs of each individual throughout the day.

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

Part 2 in our series focusing on wheelchair solutions for Veterans. See Part 1 here.

If you work in an office setting, you’ll notice that there is an increased push towards standing desks and even treadmill desks. It has been well documented that prolonged sitting affects your health. So, if this is true for able-bodied individuals, it is certainly true for a wheelchair user.
