Heal and prevent pressure sores with the Aquila Airpulse PK2 wheelchair cushion.

Airpulse PK2 Custom Seating System

Retail Price $3900

The patented Airpulse PK2 (APK2) is a fully-automatic alternating pressure relief cushion. The primary function of the APK2 is to help treat  and prevent pressure sores (pressure ulcers) by providing the ideal healing conditions and performing automatic pressure relief.  Constant pressure is the primary cause of pressure ulcers and the APK2 interrupts constant pressure up to 60 times per hour with a gentle massaging action. This is what distinguishes our cushion from static (non-moving) cushions. Static cushions exert constant pressure and our cushions counteract the constant pressure.

You tell us where the trouble spot(s) or pressure ulcer(s) is located, and we custom build the cushion to off-load that area full-time, while stimulating circulation throughout the rest of the posterior.

We guarantee that our cushions are more effective than any cushion on the market at stimulating tissue while offloading under a sore.  The 5-year study at the Cleveland Clinic is testament to that fact.

 

 

The Airpulse PK2 has been assigned HCPCS code E2609 for reimbursement from Medicare and other insurance.

Eliminate the Primary Cause of Pressure Sores

Aquila cushions eliminate the primary cause of pressure ulcers and skin breakdown, which is constant unrelieved pressure. A non-powered static air cushion, like a ROHO, cannot give pressure relief unless the user lifts themselves up. Other sideway movements on a non powered cushion do little more than weight redistribution for very short periods of time so there is no lasting effect. Aquila alternating cushions on the other hand give actual pressure relief automatically up to 60 times per hour for the entire time the system is activated.

How The Airpulse PK2 Works

This video is for illustration only; the alternation of the actual cushion is not this prominent. The animation shows the general principle of operation for the APK2. The actual bladder arrangement and number of cushion air bladders for each client is based on individual conditions and needs, and this may vary from person to person. Bladders can be sized or arranged in any configuration based on the client’s specific requirements.
