SofTech Basic Custom Seating System
The SofTech Basic is similar in function to the SofTech cushion, having integrated components and the same cushion materials, but in a standardized configuration and at a lower price point.
The SofTech Basic is fully automatic like the SofTech, but with a pre-set cycle time of approximately 1 minute. The cushion inflates and then slowly deflates one bladder group at a time offering gentle tissue stimulation while offloading the ischial and sacral area.
If you don’t need adjustable settings or custom offloading, the SofTech Basic may be just right for you. The SofTech Basic cushion is also available for rental to nursing homes and care centers.

A Product That Bends the Boundaries
We are proud to say that Mobility Management Magazine featured the SofTech cushion in a recent article – “Aquila’s SofTech: It’s What’s Inside that Counts“. They praised our new cushion saying that the Aquila SofTech cushion is:
“…a product that bends the boundaries of what you might expect from high-end custom seating for your most at-risk wheelchair clients.”Read Entire Article
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?

Justine, we are passionate about Aquila Cushions. If anything we have said would be helpful for others, you certainly have our permission to share it.

Hello Steve, I hope you are not growing tired of my comments on your cushion. L came down with another case of bronchitis/pneumonia. He was hospitalized for a week and recovered nicely.

I would like to comment on your APk2 wheelchair cushion. In approximately 2005, after being ‘wheelchair bound’ for over 20 years, I developed a pressure sore over my coccyx bone. This sore slowly became larger until it became a stage 4 (bone visible) pressure sore. At this time I had Read More
I just purchased an APK2 cushion and I couldn’t be happier with the cushion and with the service I was given. I have a pressure sore on my sacrum and I was interested to see if I could find a cushion that would allow me to stay in my wheelchair Read More
I want to thank you again for giving me my life back. I am only alive when I am able to function, and I can only function sitting. Thank you for your inventiveness, filling an obvious need. Even I thought of and wished for a cushion that would alternate air Read More
It is my professional opinion the concept of alternating pressure in a wheelchair cushion is effective in the prevention of pressure ulcers in those patients who are restricted to use of a wheelchair. As a plastic surgeon who has been involved in the care of pressure ulcer patients most of Read More
