The Aquila SofTech Cushion helps heal and prevent pressure injuries.

SofTech Custom Wheelchair Cushion

Retail cost $4300

The SofTech Wheelchair Cushion is here.  With completely new state of the art electronics and wireless remote control, the best just got better.

Like the Airpulse PK2, the SofTech wheelchair cushion is custom made and specifically designed to treat and prevent pressure sores by automatically changing pressure distribution.  The SofTech cushion also provides full time offloading where you need it.

The benefits of the SofTech wheelchair cushion are similar to doing a pressure lift but with none of the work.  Circulation is actively stimulated every 60 seconds which is instrumental in preventing pressure sores.

The SofTech customizing is the same as the APK2 , including  full-time offloading under any existing pressure ulcers no matter the size or location.

The SofTech goes a step beyond our APK2 wheelchair cushion system in that SofTech is a completely self-contained system with the electronics, battery and pump built right into the cushion rather than in a separate controller. 

We guarantee our custom wheelchair cushions to be the most effective cushions on the market in terms of stimulating circulation while offloading under existing pressure injury.  Also, we also have the most clinical evidence of any cushion on the market.

The SofTech has been assigned HCPCS code E2609 for reimbursement from Medicare and other insurance.

Watch the video and see the difference between an Aquila alternating wheelchair cushion and a static air flotation cushion

In the video the pressure map on the left is the Aquila alternating wheelchair cushion and the one on the right is a Roho static cushion.  See the difference between changing pressure points versus constant pressure.  Remember, constant pressure is the number one cause of pressure sores.
