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 category/stage pressure injury (including deep tissue injury), skin grafts, and/or myocutaneous flap surgery
  • currently have skin/soft tissue breakdown and/or any category/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 1 in. / 2.5 cm
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 2½ lbs. / 1.1 kg. (based on 1R99LPC) 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 LOW 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.
