Custom Wheelchair Cushions for Pressure Sore Relief

At Aquila, we specialize in designing and manufacturing wheelchair cushions that are customized to fit the unique needs of our clients. Our cushions are automatic alternating wheelchair cushions which inflate and deflate sets of internal air bladders.  The alternation gives pressure relief to compressed tissue, critical for avoiding pressure injury.  With an Aquila wheelchair cushion, you will get automatic pressure relief for up to 60 times an hour.  

We offer custom wheelchair cushion systems and accessories to give the freedom of mobility back to every individual in a wheelchair suffering from pressure sores.

Our latest innovation in therapeutic seating is the SofTech custom seating system. Like the Airpulse PK2 the SofTech pressure sore cushion is designed to treat and prevent pressure ulcers by automatically changing pressure points but the Softech is self contained with all components built right into the wheelchair cushion so there is no separate control box. Our wheelchair cushions are the most effective on the market working on a similar principle to an alternating mattress but with almost unlimited customization.  We custom build our PK2 and SofTech wheelchair cushions for pressure ulcers with our client’s health in mind and the goal of quickly improving current pressure sores while preventing any new sores. 

All Aquila wheelchair cushions have been assigned HCPCS code E2609 for reimbursement from Medicare and other insurance.

Compare Wheelchair Cushions and See the Difference Movement Makes

Watch the video and see the difference an alternating wheelchair cushion makes while actively working to change pressure points and stimulate circulation versus a static cushion that provides constant pressure.

In the video the pressure map on the left is our alternating wheelchair cushion and the one on the right is a Roho static cushion which cannot change pressure points by itself. You’ll see first hand the difference between changing pressure points versus constant pressure.

Which cushion do you think is better for your skin and tissue?
