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.

It’s CRT Awareness Week! What does that mean and why should I care?

“Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) includes individually configured wheelchairs, seating systems, and other adaptive equipment prescribed to meet the specific needs of people with disabilities such as ALS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. This specialized equipment addresses their medical needs, reduces their health care costs, and maximizes their function and independence”. (taken from access2crt.org)
CRT Awareness Week is meant to let people know how important CRT is, and to inform the public of current legislation related to CRT. It happens every August when members of Congress are in their home offices and the goal is to mobilize people to reach out to their Congressmen and ask for their support on Bills that protect access to CRT.
“We need Congress to protect access by passing important legislation this year”.(taken from access2CRT.org)

Making a Stand

As we’ve been discussing the benefits of front wheel drive recently, we had an unsolicited story come our way. Joseph Maimone lives in NC and is a published author, radio contributor, and has a following on YouTube. He sustained a spinal cord injury from a skiing accident in 2004 and has been in a wheelchair ever since. This is his story of how standing has improved his health and lifestyle. Thanks to Todd Dewey, ATP with Numotion for connecting us with our friend Joseph to share his story.

Benefits of Front Wheel Drive Part 2

Part 2 in our two-part series exploring the potential benefits and uses of front wheel drive power wheelchairs. Check out Part 1.

Last week we looked a few reasons a front wheel drive (FWD) power wheelchair might be right for you. We discussed how FWD wheel base configuration can increase how close you can get to surfaces for function and drive maneuverability to ease navigation of tight corners. This week we continue our conversation by taking a look at the following reasons FWD might be the right mobility base for you:
