Get pressure sore relief with the Aquila SofTech Basic wheelchair cushion.

A Product That is Simple and Easy to Use

The SofTech Basic comes pre-set with a 60 second cycle time for optimal tissue stimulation, allowing users to maintain their independence by allowing for longer sitting time. Individuals who use a simple static air cushion cannot get the pressure relief they need unless they are able to manually lift themselves up, which is not easy. Static air cushions are especially risky because they have no alert of dangerous conditions such as under-inflated to flat cushions.

The SofTech Basic not only comes with a high tech long lasting battery but it also provides essential automatic pressure relief.

Keeping It Simple and Affordable

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 with a pre-set cycle time of approximately 1 minute. During that cycle time 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.

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.
