Airpulse PK2 Custom Seating System

The patented Airpulse PK2 (APK2) is a fully-automatic alternating pressure relief cushion. The primary function of the APK2 is to help and prevent pressure sores (pressure ulcers) by providing the ideal healing conditions and performing automatic pressure relief. It can be used on manual wheelchairs, powerchairs or regular sitting chairs.

You tell us where the trouble spot(s) or pressure ulcer(s) is located, and we build the cushion to off-load that area full-time, while stimulating circulation throughout the rest of the posterior.  

The cushion is easy to clean, very lightweight and stable during transfers.

The Airpulse PK2 has been assigned HCPCS code E2609 for reimbursement from Medicare and other insurance.

Eliminate the Primary Cause of Pressure Sores

Aquila cushions eliminate the primary cause of pressure ulcers and skin breakdown, which is constant unrelieved pressure. A non-powered static air cushion, like a ROHO, cannot give pressure relief unless the user lifts themselves up. Other sideway movements on a non powered cushion do little more than weight redistribution for very short periods of time so there is no lasting effect. Aquila alternating cushions on the other hand give actual pressure relief automatically up to 60 times per hour for the entire time the system is activated.

How The Airpulse PK2 Works

This video is for illustration only; the alternation of the actual cushion is not this prominent. The animation shows the general principle of operation for the APK2. The actual bladder arrangement and number of cushion air bladders for each client is based on individual conditions and needs, and this may vary from person to person. Bladders can be sized or arranged in any configuration based on the client’s specific requirements.
