SofTech Custom Seating System

Aquila’s latest innovation in therapeutic seating is the SofTech custom seating system. Like the Airpulse PK2, the SofTech is designed to treat and prevent pressure sores/ulcers by automatically changing pressure distribution much like an alternating mattress.

The benefits of the active SofTech wheelchair cushion are similar to doing a pressure lift. Circulation to compressed skin and tissue is re-established. Circulation is the key to preventing pressure ulcers.

The SofTech is built with the same customization as the PK2 which includes full-time offloading under one or more existing pressure ulcers.

The SofTech goes a step beyond our APK2 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.

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

A Product That Bends the Boundaries

We are proud to say that Mobility Management Magazine featured the SofTech 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 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.”

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.

Which cushion do you think is better for your skin and tissue?
