How Do I Use the Roho Single Valve Pressure Relief Cushion?
The Roho Single Valve Pressure Relief Cushion is fitted with a hand inflation pump that enables you to select the right amount of pressure catered for you, your client or your patient. The cushion is placed on a chair of wheelchair, at which point you inflate the cushion to a required level. More air will lead to a firmer cushion, while less air will provide more of a spongy feel.
How Does the Pressure Relief Cushion Work?
Designed using a unique cellular design, the Roho High Profile Pressure Cushion can fit, match and track the shape of the patient, helping to distribute pressure evenly across the cushion. This helps to facilitate blood flow, which can prevent pressure sores from developing and help pressure sores in recovery. The simple adjustment of the cells within the cushion ensures a more catered fit, something supplied by Dry Floatation Technology.
What is Dry Floatation Technology?
Dry Floatation Technology has been 40 years in development and works by trapping air into individual cells that can help to keep the patient in the centre of the cushion. By trapping air it ensures that the cushion will remember the user's body shape, helping to reduce discomfort and irritation for the user. This catered and equal pressure will also help to prevent any rocking and swaying that may take place without the cushion.
Can the User or Carer Adjust the Roho Cushion?
Both the user and carer can easily adjust the cushion by using the supplied hand inflation pump. However, we always advice that you consult your GP, consultant or physiotherapist before purchase and get a recommendation on the level of pressure relief that is best suited for your needs.
What is the Benefit of a High Profile Cushion?
A high profile design can ensure an increased level of depth for the client to sink in to, which has the effect of enhancing comfort during use. It also can prevent rocking and swaying because the level of depth is equal across the cushion, while the chances of irritation is reduced by the even depth across the width of the design.
Will the Roho Pressure Relief Cushion Prevent Pressure Sores?
If you or your client is at risk of pressure sores then the key in preventing them from developing is to keep the blood flowing. By offering even, distributed pressure across the width of the cushion you can ensure that blood supply is not interrupted, keeping skin and skin tissue healthy.
Will the Roho Pressure Relief Cushion Help Sores to Recover?
If you or your client is suffering from pressure sores then the rate of recovery can be increased by enabling blood to flow to the affected area, while reducing the pressure felt on the sore. The Roho High Profile Pressure Relief Cushion provides just that, with even pressure reducing the strain felt across the entire cushion. This reduced pressure gives the injury the time and space to recover, while blood circulation to the injury will help increase the speed of recovery.
How Comfortable is the Single Valve Cushion to Use?
If you can imagine what it feels like to sit on a cushion that mimics the effects of floating in water, then this is what sitting on the Roho Cushion feels like. It is designed to do just this with its unique cellular design, meaning that no discomfort will be felt by the user while in use. The immersive depth that is provided by the high profile design is perfect for anyone concerned about discomfort and pain and can help to improve the well-being for any pressure sore patient.
Is the Roho Cushion Suitable for Bariatric Patients?
The Roho Pressure Relief Cushion comes with no weight limit, which means that it is suitable for clients who are obese. There is however a limit on the size of the patient, as only a select number of sizes are available. For further sizing information please see the bottom of the page.
How Lightweight and Portable is the Roho Single Valve Cushion?
Your Pressure Relief Cushion will weigh roughly 1.78kg (3.8 lbs) although this can depend on the size of cushion that you select. However because it isn't particularly heavy, the cushion is easily transportable and can be used on a wheelchair out of the house. This ensures that pressure relief patients can still retain mobility while protecting themselves against pressure sores.
