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

APK2 Custom Wheelchair Cushion

Retail Price $3900

The patented APK2is a fully-automatic alternating pressure relief wheelchair 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. Since it is well known that constant pressure is the primary cause of pressure ulcers, the APK2 interrupts constant pressure up to 60 times per hour with a gentle massaging action to directly fight this primary cause.  This is what distinguishes our alternating air cushion from static (non-moving) cushions. Static wheelchair cushions exert constant pressure, actually contributing to pressure ulcers, and our alternating air cushion for wheelchairs counteracts the constant pressure in a preventative capacity.

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 wheelchair cushions are the best cushion for pressure sores and 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 wheelchair cushions eliminate the primary cause of pressure ulcers and skin breakdown, which is constant unrelieved pressure.  Simple static wheelchair cushions, like ROHO, cannot give pressure relief themselves.  Those low tech wheelchair cushions require the user to make their own pressure relief by lifting their body weight performing difficult wheelchair push ups every 20 minutes.  That is not necessary with Aquila wheelchair cushions.  Aquila alternating wheelchair cushions give pressure relief automatically up to 60 times per hour eliminating the need for difficult pressure lifts.  Doesn’t it just make sense to eliminate the cause of pressure sores automatically and with no physical exertion?

How The Airpulse PK2 Works

This video is for illustration only; the alternation of the actual wheelchair 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.
