The Aquila SofTech Basic cushion is simple and easy to use.

SofTech Basic Seating System

The SofTech Basic is a lower cost, completely self-contained alternating cushion system with the electronics built into the cushion, rather than in a separate controller.  It is simple, easy to operate and extremely comfortable.

The SofTech Basic is designed to prevent pressure ulcers while stimulating circulation with a gentle massage action. SofTech Basic has no adjustments and cycles about every 60 seconds.

Since this is a standardized cushion we do not offer customization of this model. Instead there are three different sizes SofTech Basic to choose from.  Clients with current pressure ulcers or requiring custom sizes would benefit from one of our custom cushions, the SofTech or APK2.

    I bought the seat late 2003 in San Antonio. It’s not great; it’s a miracle! You have no idea. After 31 years as a partial C3, C4-C5 quad, I am sitting on a stage 4 breakdown for 8 hours a healing back to stage 2. Where 10-14 hours sitting time Read More

  • Larry Yenter – Rochester, MN

    I had a Stage 3 decubitus ulcer on my right ischial tuberosity (the key word is ‘had’).  Right now, my pressure wound is healed.  By using the Airpulse PK cushion system, I did not have to be put on bed rest and did not miss any work. This cushion is Read More

  • G. Groover E-5 US Army

    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

  • Rancher Using Aquila Cushion

    In August 2009, I had a huge pressure sore break open in the coccyx area, it was the size of a grapefruit.  I’ve been sitting up on the sore in an Aquila Cushion, sometimes 18 hours a day here on the busy ranch and the sore is almost healed.  If Read More

    I have used the Aquila Airpulse PK for six years and would not be without it. I was in a plane crash and am a T-12 paraplegic (SCI). The Airpulse PK cushion system goes with me on Continental Airlines to Atlantis in the Bahamas, to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, Read More

  • Marty Bittle

    So far we are absolutely thrilled with the cushion. Charley has used it 6 full days, and I have kept careful track of the depth of his ulcer. It has actually healed .6 centimeters every two days, even with him sitting on his cushion for 12 hours. He is back Read More

I promised her that I would come Read More

  • Dave & Maria – Denver, CO

    The Airpulse played a key role in helping my pressure sores to heal. Now I’m still using the cushion for prevention and “more energy”. I never realized just how important good circulation really is and the difference that a Wheelchair Cushion can make I hope the medical industry comes around and Read More
