By the time I heard about Aquila wheelchair cushions my son already had a stage 4 bed sore. Until his scheduled surgery, the (Aquila) cushion we were able to obtain prevented the sore from getting worse. After surgery the Aquila wheelchair cushion helped the sore to continue healing. That was over 2 years ago. He continues to remain healthy.
I am so thankful that he has such a wonderful wheelchair cushion that enables him to finally be out of bed. The people at Aquila have been very generous and helpful and we are grateful.
(The cushion indicated as being used prior to the Aquila was the Vicair Adjuster)
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.
