Providing Freedom & Relief for Our Veterans

Movement Is The Key
To fight pressure injuries you need movement. Our patented cushions provide that movement.
Patented Cushion Design
Aquila is the industry expert in custom made therapeutic Cushions designed to both prevent and treat pressure sores achieving the best possible patient outcomes. For 19 years clinicians have been calling on Aquila cushions to reverse the damage caused by Static cushions and offer the best protection against pressure sores. Let us help you too.
We have clinical studies documenting the healing progression of pressure sores using our cushion versus manual lifting and other cushions. There are also case studies documenting healing and articles in medical journals showcasing amazing healing results achieved with our cushions. No cushion manufacturer has more clinical evidence than Aquila.
Free Yourself from Painful Pressure Injuries
The primary cause of pressure wounds is constant, unrelieved pressure. Medical professionals recommend that pressure lifts or weight shifts be done every 20 minutes when using a static wheelchair cushion or you risk developing pressure injury. With static cushions it is necessary for the user to take some action and create their own pressure relief or risk developing a pressure sore. We offer a better and much easier solution. Unlike static cushions, our state of the art automatic wheelchair cushions deliver pressure relieving therapy as often as 60 times per hour.
Our cushions take the work and worry out of creating pressure relief and deliver true protection from pressure sores.
We have helped thousands of people both prevent and heal their pressure injuries while being up and active. If you or a loved one have pressure injuries, please give us a call and speak to one of our dedicated representatives. This clinically proven technology can help you live the life you deserve; free of pressure injuries.
What Makes Aquila Cushions Different?
The design of the Aquila cushions are born of excellent engineering and knowledge of what causes and prevents pressure sores. Each cushion is hand made at our facility in Holmen WI. We use a variety of foam densities and air bladder size and layout to enhance positioning, support and offload for optimal benefit to each client. There are no cookie cutter operations at Aquila. Each client’s cushion design is given the same thought and consideration because we put out a premium, custom made cushion that is the best in the industry, as evidenced with our clinical data and our track record of improving or healing all stages of pressure sores. You can get cheaper (substandard) alternating cushions but you get what you pay for. Opt for the best, the award winning and truly effective Aquila cushion and enjoy the benefits.
What Others Are Saying About Aquila Wheelchair Cushions
“When other wheelchair cushions have failed, I can always depend on Aquila Corporation to provide the absolute best custom-made cushions available anywhere. Their innovative design offers the highest level of skin protection and pressured distribution that my clients need to remain active, and to avoid being bedridden due to their ongoing struggles with pressure ulcers. I’ve seen time and time again how these cushions have given wheelchair users the freedom to remain seated for greater periods of time because they now have the circulation and offloading where they need it the most. In short, the cushions that Aquila Corporation offer can change lives for the better.”

What Causes Pressure Injuries?
The fact is that constant compression of skin and tissue is the main cause of pressure injuries because circulation is cut off. If the circulation is not restored, the result can be ischemia, tissue death and ulceration.
If you are currently sitting on a static cushion you must lift yourself and do difficult pressure lifts every 20 minutes to get circulation back into compressed tissue or risk getting a pressure wound.
Our cushions are a far better option automatically creating movement 60 times per hour for the most frequent stimulation of tissue and optimal benefits. The primary purpose of the Aquila cushions is to fight pressure injury and keep tissue healthy and they work constantly and invisibly.
