Providing Freedom & Relief for Our Veterans

Movement Is The Key
To fight pressure injuries you need movement. Our patented cushions provide that movement.
We build the ideal wheelchair cushion
Why do we say we make the ideal wheelchair cushion? Because it is more beneficial to the user than any cushion on the market. The Aquila design and function are to prevent and heal pressure sores.
Aquila cushions actively work to prevent pressure sores by alternating every 60 seconds relieving pressure to compressed tissue, the leading cause of pressure sores. Aquila clients don’t need to do pressure lifts which are required with all low-tech cushions.
Aquila cushions are also custom built to heal existing pressure sores. See example on our clinical page. Aquila cushions are the smartest and safest cushions on the market, now featuring new electronics and wireless Bluetooth technology.
Upgrade to the best, the only cushion that can heal pressure sores, an Aquila. Medicare code E2609.
Clinical Studies and Case Reports
Aquila has more relevant clinical studies and case reports than any wheelchair cushion on the market, including a 5-year study from the Cleveland Clinic.
Aquila clinical reports include the remarkable improvement to a huge stage 4 pressure sore which was caused while sitting on a Roho cushion, and healed by an Aquila wheelchair cushion. Articles referencing the remarkable results our cushions bring have been published in medical journals as well. The data and real world results confirm we are the smart choice.
Choose the best in the business at both preventing and treating pressure sores. Choose an Aquila wheelchair cushion.
The wheelchair 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 its own pressure relief or it can just sit there doing nothing and actually contributing to pressure sores.
A static wheelchair cushion exerts constant pressure which experts tell us is the leading cause of pressure sores. Be it foam, gel or air, if the cushion cannot create its own movement, stimulate circulation and provide pressure relief, it is putting you at great risk of developing pressure sores with every passing minute.
Static cushions require lifting and shifting every 20 minutes in an effort to prevent pressure sores. If you are not diligently doing manual pressure lifts every 20 minutes, pressure sores have the perfect environment for starting.
This is where Aquila wheelchair cushions shine. Our cushions replace pressure lifts and automatically provide essential pressure relief every 60 seconds, all day long.
Aquila custom wheelchair cushions are the easy, consistent and effective way to deliver pressure relief. Say no to static wheelchair cushions and yes to Aquila wheelchair cushions.
Alternating Technology Makes Sense
Consider the medical protocol after a flap surgery. Medical professionals recommend and sometimes require an alternating mattress be used by the patient to prevent relapse. An alternating mattress interrupts the constant pressure to the body and stimulates circulation which is what is needed to avoid pressure sores. Doesn’t it make sense to continue medically prescribed therapy while using 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 true for any static cushion be it foam, air or gel. The circulation is cut off and cells begin to die and the result is pressure sores. It is similar to stepping on a garden hose. That’s why with static wheelchair cushions medical professionals recommend pressure lifts or heavy leaning side to side every 20 minutes in an effort to relieve pressure and avoid pressure sores. That work is not necessary with our wheelchair cushions.
Aquila cushions are much smarter and an infinitely easier method to ensure pressure relief 60 times per hour. Our wheelchair 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.”
