ROHO has improved the AirLITE with you in mind!

The AirLITE Cushion improves the ability to transfer by lowering the front and middle of the cushion 3/4 inch (2 cm), while keeping its strong positioning capability by deepening the leg troughs. The lower height also contributes to a greater feeling of security in the chair.

  • “Bottom-Out” Protection

    The non-adjustable ROHO AIR FLOATATION air insert built into the cushion under the ischials has been enhanced to provide better bottom-out protection.

  • Softer Foam

    Softer foam allows the cushion to conform to the individual’s physiology and provide a more comfortable seating surface.

  • Durability and Simplicity

    The 24 month warranty shows our confi dence in the quality and durability of the product. The AirLITE is an off the shelf, ready to use product. No adjustment is required.

  • Heavy Duty Cover

    The cover design, with full zipper coverage, provides enhanced fl uid resistance to protect the foam. At the same time, the cover is 100% PVC free, reinforcing ROHO’s commitment to more environmentally friendly products.

Based on clinical, scientific or engineering evidence, this product may be suitable for individuals who:
  • Are at risk for skin/soft tissue breakdown.
  • Have normal sensation.
  • Require increased stability.
  • Require lower extremity alignment.
  • Need a lightweight, non-adjustable seating system.
  • Require a more stable environment for transfers.
Protection

ROHO is the worldwide leader of seating solutions to prevent and treat pressure injuries including deep tissue injury while providing skin and soft tissue protection.

Clinical Evidence

ROHO has been in over 90 scientific and clinical studies to reinforce and verify that a ROHO DRY FLOATATION cushion heals, treats and prevents pressure injuries including deep tissue injury.

Adjustability

ROHO DRY FLOATATION cushions, unlike foam products, provide the ability to constantly adjust and conform with an individual’s body, now, and as he or she changes throughout the months and years.

Adaptability

ROHO DRY FLOATATION cushions support the shifts and movements that individuals make throughout each day.

What is an immersion style wheelchair cushion?

Part 6 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3,Part 4, and Part 5.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guide here.

Immersion is another principle of pressure distribution, neither better nor worse than offloading. Whether it is better or worse depends completely on the patient’s individualized needs and what you as a therapist are trying to achieve.
Recall that the principle of offloading is redistributing pressure away from a small surface area onto a greater surface area that can withstand the constant pressure better, making a patient less likely to sustain a pressure injury.
Immersion, on the other hand, is the principle of conforming to the person’s curvature by “sinking the body in.” We allow the cushion and/or back support to take the body’s shape, alleviating the bony prominences from unwanted peak pressure to maximize pressure redistribution.

The Reality of Chronic Pain for Wheelchair Users
Chronic pain is an unfortunate fact of daily life for many wheelchair users. Sometimes the pain is related to an injury, and other times it is related to being in a wheelchair for extended periods of time. Thankfully, there are some very effective pain management options available to wheelchair users.

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:
