SofTech Custom Wheelchair Cushion
Retail cost $4730 (effective 01/01/2023)
The SofTech Wheelchair Cushion is in a class by itself. With completely new state of the art electronics and auto-start/stop, 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, such as under an existing pressure sore or area of sensitivity.
The benefits of the SofTech wheelchair cushion are similar to doing a pressure lift but without requiring effort from the end-user. Circulation is actively stimulated every 60 seconds which is instrumental in preventing pressure sores.
The SofTech customization 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 the SofTech is a completely self-contained system with the electronics, battery and pump built right into the cushion rather than in a separate controller. The SofTech also utilizes auto-start/stop technology. The SofTech wheelchair cushion will start automatically when weight is applied to the surface of the cushion. When weight is removed from the surface of the cushion, the SofTech will automatically turn off. The best truly just got better.
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 injuries. We also have the most clinical evidence of any cushion on the market.

A Product That Bends the Boundaries
We are proud to say that Mobility Management Magazine featured the SofTech wheelchair cushion in a recent article – “Aquila’s SofTech: It’s What’s Inside that Counts“. They praised our new cushion saying that the Aquila SofTech wheelchair cushion is:
“…a product that bends the boundaries of what you might expect from high-end custom seating for your most at-risk wheelchair clients.”Read Article About The SofTech Wheelchair Cushion Here

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.

Pressure Mapping Comparison of Aquila's SofTech Alternating Wheelchair Cushion vs Roho Static Air Cushion
The Medicare billing code for the SofTech Seating System is: HCPCS E2609.
We have recently heard from DME companies that the most Medicare will pay towards a SofTech is a few hundred dollars and that the process can take up to a year to come through.
Private insurance and/or workers’ compensation may offer a different outcome.
