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.
