The ROHO Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment Cushion combines skin/soft tissue protection and Shape Fitting Technology with stability from a contoured foam base.

This innovative cushion combines the skin and soft tissue protection and Shape Fitting Technology® of a ROHO DRY FLOATATION® cushion with stability from a contoured foam base. The shape-fitting air insert provides critical pressure redistribution around the pelvis area for those with an obliquity. And the two, independent compartments let you set inflation levels to your exact shape and ideal position.

  • Positioning

    An individual can achieve greater positioning ability with the Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment cushion. The contoured foam base provides the opportunity for both lower extremity and pelvic alignment and control.

  • Skin/Soft Tissue Protection

    The Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment cushion hydrostatically loads the ischial tuberosities and the posterior shelf of the greater trochanters for those who are at risk of skin/soft tissue breakdown. Unparalleled in performance, the ROHO cushion insert allows for immersion and envelopment of the individual’s shape. It provides an adjustable, reduced friction and shear environment that can help protect the individual from acquiring pressure injuries from sitting. The dual valve option on the ROHO insert allows for additional customization to match an individual’s specific shape and asymmetry. Allows for up to approximately 2¾ in / 7 cm of immersion.

  • Stability

    The Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment’s customized contoured foam base provides improved positioning of the pelvis and lower extremities, enhancing sitting posture. This added stability assists the individual in achieving a safer transfer in and out of their wheelchair.

Based on clinical, scientific or engineering evidence, this product may be suitable 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 myocutaneous flap surgery
  • currently have skin/soft tissue breakdown and/or any stage pressure injury (including deep tissue injury)
  • are 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 2 in. / 5 cm
  • require increased stability
  • require lower extremity alignment
  • require correction of pelvic asymmetry (medial lateral) , up to approximately 2 in. / 5 cm
Universally Personal.

There’s nothing more personal than your comfort. That’s why we have a range of sizes and products to fit every chair and every person. Plus we have custom options, too. It’s also why we meticulously test and inspect your cushion before it leaves our factory.

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:
