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 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

  • Sean Holderread – Hendersonville, NC

    I have been WC bound for nearly 22 years. I have tried numerous cushions…and all have caused my right ischial to breakdown. Over the last six years, I have fought to keep this area healthy. To no avail. Bed-bound, and heading for flap surgery, I learned of the APK. Desperate, Read More

I promised her that I would come Read More

    Over the last 18 years I was always dealing with pressure sores. I have had multiple flap surgeries and my ischion tips had to be rounded. In my case, cushions with air suspension system did not provide enough protection and my work and free time was always interrupted by long periods in bed. I’ve Read More

    I am a quadriplegic who has a C-4/5 spinal cord injury. I have been wheelchair bound for nearly 21 years and have tried numerous cushions but still had skin break down on my right and left ischial area. I have had two flap surgeries to close the pressure sores. Since Read More
