Vicair Academy Twin Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion

Those who spend long stretches of time seated in a wheelchair can be at risk of pressure sore development, and this risk is further exacerbated if the individual suffers from body asymmetry. The Vicair Academy Twin Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion is the entry level cushion in the Vicair Academy range, and is ideal for general use. Suitable for those at high risk of pressure ulcer development, this cushion is divided into two air-cell-filled compartments and is recommended for those with severe body asymmetry.

This cushion is available in a variety of sizes with two cover choices. Select your desired options from the drop-down menus.

Very High Risk Pressure Relief

Vicair Academy cushions provide a unique combination of weight distribution, comfort, positioning and postural support, making them an excellent pressure relief solution for those at very high risk of pressure ulcer development. These cushions are fully adjustable in cell density, allowing them to be customised to provide the best relief for each specific patient. The support they provide makes them excellent for those with a range of postural asymmetries.

Two Compartments for Shear Reduction

Recommended for use by clients with severe body asymmetry, this cushion is divided into two compartments, each filled with hundreds of SoftCells. There are fewer cells in the front than in the rear, allowing the cushion to provide excellent relief and shear reduction.

Unique Air-Filled SoftCells

Vicair cushions are designed with a unique and innovative pressure relief system, consisting of hundreds of air-filled SoftCells. These small, pyramid-shaped cells are arranged in strategically placed compartments, allowing for bespoke support and relief. Flexible and fabric-coated, these cells have a low friction level, allowing them to move with the patient to produce a significant reduction in shear forces while conforming to body contours.

Lightweight and Low-Maintenance

This cushion is made to be easy to use and maintain, as it is lightweight and each SoftCell is independently replaceable if damaged. Once the cushion has been adjusted to the client's needs, there is little intervention required, meaning less disruption for the patient and carer. The cushion is simple to transfer from chair to chair, making it ideal for active clients.

Cover Choices

This cushion is available with two choices of cover. Both covers feature and anti-slip bottom for stability and a two-way stretchable top for comfort and reduction of shear forces. The covers are fitted with Velcro tape on the undersides, allowing fixation to the wheelchair seat.

The two cover choices are as follows:

  • Comfair Cover: Breathable fabric. This cover provides excellent comfort for the patient.
  • Incontinence Cover: Waterproof incontinence-proof material. This cover provides excellent protection to increase cushion longevity.
