Loves The SofTech Basic

I discovered Aquila over 15 years ago after doing a web search for pressure relief wheelchair cushions.  When I got my first cushion my life became easier.  No more wheelchair push ups or leaning side to side.  What a relief that was.  I have had 3 cushions over the years and they continue to get better.  

My newest Aquila cushion is the SofTech Basic and I love it!  No more worries if you forget to turn the cushion off when you get out of your chair.  Its great. 

Keep up the awesome work.

Aquila Corporation is the manufacturer of the only custom fabricated alternating wheelchair cushion on the market.  The SofTech wheelchair cushion works on the principle of alternating pressure relief, similar to that of the alternating air mattresses on the market.  The key difference is that Aquila wheelchair cushions are handmade per the individual needs of each client and are custom fabricated to offload under existing pressure injuries while stimulating circulation throughout the posterior.  The combination of automatic alternation and custom fabrication assists our clients in the healing of pressure injuries.

The benefits of the SofTech 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.  Unlike the static cushions that can be purchased off the shelf, Aquila wheelchair cushions have constantly evolved and improved.  Aquila wheelchair cushions have more clinical evidence than any wheelchair on the market and have clinical proof of improving pressure sores of all stages.  Choose Aquila and choose the best and smartest choice in wheelchair seating. 

Please note: the SofTech Basic was a standard version of the SofTech pressure relief wheelchair cushion and did not offer customization options.  The SofTech Basic is no longer available for purchase.  Our current pressure relief wheelchair cushions for sale are the original SofTech.
