The patient or carer can set the range required, and then repeatedly check to see if the pressure has fallen below the required range.

How Do I Use the Roho Single Valve Sensor Ready 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 specifically 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 Roho Sensor Ready Cushion also uses forward thinking technology called Dry Floatation and it has put Roho at the top of the pressure relief market.
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?
The Roho Cushion works best if the carer adjusts the patient, as the carer will have specialist knowledge on the level of pressure relief that is required for the patient. However, the patient can use the Smart Check Inflation Monitor to check the level of pressure being provided as the carer won't be around at all times to do this. The patient can check it themselves, before contacting for assistance if the cushion requires adjustment.
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.
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 wellbeing 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.
