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

SofTech Basic Seating System

Every SofTech Basic cushion system we build is simple and easy for our clients to use. SofTech Basic is a completely self-contained system with the electronics built into the cushion, rather than in a separate controller like our popular APK2 cushion system. Like the APK2, the SofTech Basic is designed to prevent and treat pressure ulcers while stimulating circulation. Since this is a standardized cushion we do not offer customization, instead there are three different sizes to choose from.  The control for the SofTech basic is a simple one button activation.

A Customizable Product That Works with Any Chair

The SofTech is a fully-automatic alternating pressure relief cushion.

It can be used on manual wheelchairs, powerchairs, or regular sitting chairs.

    A fall from the haymow of our barn 14 years ago left my husband Glen, paraplegic. When dealing with a sore those first few years, the best thing happened was learning about the Aquila Corp.
