The Aquila SofTech Basic wheelchair cushion is engineered to help treat and prevent pressure injuries.

SofTech Basic Seating System

The SofTech Basic is a standardized alternating cushion built for prevention of pressure injury.  All system components are built into the cushion and s single switch operates the cushion.  It is ideal for the nursing home or long term care environment because there are no adjustments to worry about and no training needed.  It is also ideal for the client that is looking for a lower cost automatic cushion for prevention of pressure injury. 

The SofTech Basic is fully automatic like the SofTech, but with a 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 where most pressure injuries occur.  It is quiet, comfortable and gently massages the posterior while providing pressure relief to skin and tissue.

If you don’t need adjustable settings and can use one of our 3 standard sizes for prevention of pressure injury, the SofTech Basic may be just right for you.  

The SofTech Basic cushion is available for rental to nursing homes and care centers.  Call Aquila for details.

A Product That Bends the Boundaries

“…a product that bends the boundaries of what you might expect from high-end custom seating for your most at-risk wheelchair clients.”

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?
