Providing Freedom & Relief for Our Veterans
Aquila is veteran owned and working to improve the lives of our fellow 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. Our cushions work on a principle similar to an alternating mattress, but battery operated and used in a wheelchair. Aquila cushions provide movement as often as 60 times per hour, stimulating tissue and fighting the leading cause of pressure sores. Each cushion we build is specifically built to the individual client’s condition and needs in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We are committed to improving our products to make them more effective, user friendly and paired to the unique client condition.
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, case studies, articles written in medical journals and editorials in medical journals showcasing amazing healing results achieved with our cushions. No cushion manufacturer has more clinical evidence than Aquila. Our award winning cushions are the result of great engineering and common sense and the clinical documentation serves as further validation of our products.
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.

Free Yourself from Painful Pressure Injuries
The primary cause of pressure injuries (pressure sores) 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 up to the user to take action and create their own pressure relief. We offer a better solution. Unlike static cushions, our state of the art automatic wheelchair cushions deliver pressure relieving therapy by changing pressure distribution as often as 60 times per hour for the entire day. They take the work and worry out of creating pressure relief.
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 out of excellent engineering and knowledge of what causes pressure sores. Our cushions fight the primary cause of pressure sores which is constant pressure. By automatically alternating in a similar manner as alternating mattresses, the constant pressure to skin and tissue is interrupted and circulation is re-established keeping tissue healthy. Our goal is, and has always been, to make our cushions the most effective cushion on the market for those at risk of pressure injuries and to help treat existing pressure sores. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our products and make them more effective.

What Causes Pressure Injuries?
The simple fact is that constant compression of skin and tissue under your body weight is the main cause of pressure injuries because circulation is cut off. This is much like a garden hose being stepped on where circulation is cut off to skin and tissue. If the circulation is not restored, the result can be ischemia, tissue death and ulceration.
Movement and lifting the body weight reestablishes circulation to compressed tissue which is how pressure injuries are avoided.
All Aquila cushions generate movement and pressure relief which is essential for avoiding and treating pressure injuries. Pressure relief provided from our cushion is much easier than having to do your own manual pressure lifts. Our cushions can alternate up to 60 times per hour for the most frequent stimulation of tissue and optimal benefits.
