Alternating Pressure Wheelchair Cushion and Pump System for Healing and Prevention of Pressure Sores
Developed by Purely Comfort LLC, our Alternating Pressure Wheelchair Cushion was created specifically for the prevention and treatment of stages I-IV pressure sores.
For those who are less mobile or confined to a wheelchair, recurring wounds are a significant health concern. This is in part due to prolonged pressure, the inability to reposition and improper seating positions. The inability to reposition does not allow for pressure relief. In addition, the inability to off-load body weight before repositioning leaves the person prone to shearing injuries and frequent recurrence. Because of this, pressure sores developed in a wheelchair often advance quickly to late-stage wounds. Prevention is key, treatment is essential.
CUSHION AND COVER
Our alternating pressure wheelchair cushion is constructed from a supportive foam shell with alternating pressure bladders in the seat. The foam is made from Certipur® certified foam made without the harmful chemicals and heavy metals found in foam wheelchair cushions. Our alternating pressure wheelchair cushion features a unique pressure relief zone created by four air bladders that alternate to provide superior comfort & pressure redistribution for the prevention and treatment of stages I-IV pressure ulcers. The cushion is covered in Vyvex-IV, a durable multi-stretch urethane material that is anti-microbial anti-bacterial, low shear, and low friction. There is a non-skid bottom and adjustable straps to secure the cushion to the wheelchair. The cover is very soft to the touch yet extremely durable, stain-resistant and fluid-proof. The cover is easy to clean with a simple 8% bleach/water solution.
AC/DC PORTABLE PUMP
The portable AC/DC Pump allows your patient to be totally mobile. The cushion can be plugged into any standard outlet or operated on its internal battery The rechargeable battery backup keeps this system working up to 6 hours per charge, based on the patient’s weight.
