Matrx Flo-tech Contour Lo-Back Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion

Patients who spend long stretches of time in their wheelchair may require the use of a pressure relief cushion to guard against the risk of pressure ulcers, but not all pressure relief cushions are created equal. The Matrx Flo-tech Contour Lo-Back Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion has been designed with a lower rear contour, allowing the individual to sit further back in the seat for a more comfortable position. This position promotes a better posture, while contouring under the thighs provides stabilisation to reduce the effects of shear and friction.

This cushion is available in a range of heights and widths with a choice of three different covers. Choose your desired options using the drop-down menus at the top of the page.

Features and Benefits

  • Suitable for patients at high risk of pressure ulcer development
  • Features a lower rear contour to allow sitting further back
  • Made with moulded foam to allow a contoured 3D design
  • Contoured into sections to provide excellent weight distribution
  • Provides a combination of improved posture and support
  • Foam is castellated to allow air flow and comfort
  • Castellation also reduces shear and friction on tissue
  • Available in a wide range of sizes with four cover choices
  • Ultra-fresh added to all cushions for antimicrobial protection

Lower Rear Contour

This unique cushion features a lower rear contour, allowing the user to sit further back in their seat. This allows the chair's natural back support to work more effectively, providing a betetr overall posture that contributes to a reduction of shear and high pressure zones.

Moulded Foam Cushion

Moulding allows the Matrx Flo-tech Contour Lo-Back Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion to provide a three-dimensional form, which cannot be emulated in cut foam. This foam provides ergonomic support and postural assistance, and features the added benefit of being more durable than standard cut foam cushions.
