A Technological Solution: Aquila Wheelchair Cushions

After aorta surgery I became paralyzed from T-9 down.  I had to learn and research all the different types of seating for first my manual chair and then my power chair.  One day searching on Google I framed the search in a way that Aquila was a result…  My Aquila cushion is now almost 2 years old.  I have shipped it in once for a checkup, and a pump, valves, and cushioning were replaced.

Aquila Corporation customer service has been excellent.  I highly recommend this product.  The seat cushion has provided me with the protection needed for hours in my power chair.  The cushion saves me when I forget to lift or in situations where lifting is a distraction.  Truly a technological solution that protects your skin.

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.
