Enough Is Enough

Are you sick and tired of pressure sores that require bedrest only to have the sore reappear again after using the same cushion?  Its time to upgrade to the cushions that make sense.  Aquila state-of-the-art cushions provide the automatic pressure relief necessary to end the pressure sore cycle.  See how our custom cushions outperform every cushion on the market. 

Clinical Studies

Aquila has more clinical studies and case reports than any cushion on the market including a 5-year study from the Cleveland Clinic.  

Clinical reports include the remarkable improvement to a huge stage 4 pressure sore which was caused by a static cushion, and healed by an Aquila cushion. 

Choose the best in the business at both preventing and treating pressure sores.  Choose an Aquila cushion.

The Cushion and Pressure sores

The truth is, a wheelchair cushion can directly affect your health in either a positive or negative way.  It can be an invaluable tool that actively combats pressure sores by generating pressure relief or it can just sit there doing nothing, requiring you to create your own pressure relief. 

A static cushion exerts constant pressure which is the leading cause of pressure sores.  Be it foam, gel or air, if it cannot create its own movement, stimulate circulation and provide pressure relief, it is putting you at great risk of developing pressure sores. 

A static cushion requires you to take action and work by lifting and shifting every 20 minutes to try and prevent pressure sores.  With every passing hour when not doing that work, pressure sores are able to form.

This is where Aquila cushions can help.  Our cushions replace pressure lifts and automatically deliver essential pressure relief every 60 seconds.  

Aquila cushions are the easy, consistent and effective way to handle pressure relief.

All Aquila cushions are battery operated and can be used on manual wheelchairs, powerchairs or regular sitting chairs.

Alternating Technology Makes Sense

Think about the protocol after a flap surgery.  Medical professionals recommend an alternating mattress.  An alternating mattress interrupts the constant pressure to the body and stimulates circulation which is what you need to avoid pressure sores.  Doesn’t it make sense to continue medically prescribed therapy on your wheelchair?

Instead, if you sit on a cushion at home that is motionless, with every passing minute your body weight is pressing down on your pelvic bones compressing the tissue beneath.  This is like stepping on a garden hose.  The circulation is cut off and cells begin to die, then pressure sores form.  That’s why with static cushions medical professionals recommend pressure lifts or heavy leaning side to side every 20 minutes to try and relieve pressure to avoid pressure sores.   That work is not necessary with our cushions.

Our cushions are much smarter and an infinitely easier method to ensure pressure relief 60 times per hour.  Our cushions work all day long on your behalf replacing wheelchair push-ups and leaning.

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.”
