SofTech Custom Wheelchair Cushion
Retail cost $4300
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.
