Wound Care Introduced Me to Aquila Wheelchair Cushions

I’ve been using an Aquila wheelchair cushion from almost the beginning of its inception. I’ve been on the original APK, the AirPulse PK2, and now the SofTech. I’ve had several pressure ulcers and subsequent surgeries prior to using Aquila wheelchair cushions. Other products, as they say, “did not cut the mustard!” That’s when Aquila entered my life.

My surgeon and wound care “turned me on” to Aquila wheelchair cushions. Steve has worked with me through the years to get on the best Aquila wheelchair cushion. At one time, I had 4 systems on my dining room table. We worked out the problem, helping me and I hope Steve. I just received my new system and am looking forward to “Healing While Setting.” Thanks again Aquila!!!!!

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.
