Airpulse PK2 Cushion: A Subtle Pressure Sore Treatment Cushion
The APK2 cushion is extremely effective in treating pressure sores and stimulating tissue with the subtle action of the alternating bladders. Sometimes people are confused in that they think there needs to be a very dramatic action or that they think they need to be lifted up and down by the cushion for it to work. This is not the case. The pressure relief achieved with the APK2 is more than adequate to stimulate blood flow and allow perfusion of the tissue. The animation on our website shows a very distinct rise and fall of the top surface of the cushion but this is for illustration purposes only. The actual action is not as pronounced and it doesn’t need to be. You won’t be shifted around and physically moved by the APK2 but you can be assured it is working to give you the ideal environment to treat and prevent pressure sores, something a static cushion cannot do.
