My name is M.A, and I live in Miami Florida. On October 18th, 1999 when I was 56 years old, I suffered an accident while exercising at home, which left me quadriplegic, and in a wheelchair.
In recent years I have developed two pressure sores in my buttocks that have turned into ulcers. Although for a long time I was going weekly to treat them at a nearby wound center, I did not start to see significant improvement of the pressure sores until I started sitting on the Aquila Cushion.
I have had the Aquila wheelchair cushion for 3 years now. I am not one to stay in bed during the day, so in spite of sitting in my chair all day long, putting pressure on the affected area for 12 or 13 hours daily, the wounds have continued to get better, and I know the only reason for that happening is the treatment I receive from my Aquila cushion. I’m also sure of the fact that if I would have had the Aquila from the very start, I would not even have gotten the pressure sores. The Aquila is truly amazing!
Aquila is the manufacturer of the only custom-fabricated alternating wheelchair cushion on the market. Both our APK2 and SofTech wheelchair cushions work on the same principle of alternating pressure relief to all areas of the posterior much like the alternating mattresses on the market. The difference is that Aquila cushions are handmade per the individual needs of each client. Aquila cushions are also made to offload under existing pressure injuries while stimulating circulation throughout the posterior and assist the healing of pressure injuries.
The benefits of the Aquila cushions go far beyond those of any static cushion. The alternating action of the Aquila wheelchair cushion simulates pressure lifts which are required with any static cushion. Aquila cushions have constantly evolved and improved and now feature a wireless Bluetooth remote control. Aquila cushions have more clinical evidence than any wheelchair cushion on the market and have clinical proof of improving pressure sores of all stages. The best and smartest choice in wheelchair seating is the Aquila.
