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 cushions which inflate and deflate sets of internal air bladders. The alternation gives pressure relief to compressed tissue, critical for avoiding pressure injury.
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 is designed to treat and prevent pressure ulcers by automatically changing pressure points but the Softech has all system components built into the cushion. Our cushions work on a similar principle to an alternating mattress. We custom build our PK2 and SofTech wheelchair cushions with our client’s current health, physical characteristics, and unique needs in mind.

Compare Cushions and See the Difference Movement Makes
Watch the video and see the difference an alternating 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 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?

Review 3-09-18 It is my opinion the Aquila APK2 cushion has advantages over most cushions I’ve sat on for more than 53 years. It has reduced chronic bedsores to a minimum and reduces all pressure on chronic wounds. Both I and my physician highly recommend it. The technical support I Read More
