Aquila Corporation hand builds custom wheelchair cushion systems specifically engineered to treat pressure injury (pressure sores) and prevent new ulcers from forming. Our state of the art Airpulse PK2 and newly developed SofTech deliver pressure relieving therapy by changing pressure distribution as often as 60 times per hour. Both the Airpulse PK2 and SofTech change pressure points much like an alternating mattress, but the advantage of this portable battery operated wheelchair cushion over a mattress is obvious.
The single most significant advantage of our cushions over the static (non-powered) cushions such as roho is that our cushions actively change the pressure applied to the skin and tissue while the static cushions exert constant pressure. This forces the user to take some type of action in order to achieve pressure relief on a static cushion. That action being lifting up, leaning or tilting.
It is well known that constant presure is the primary cause of pressure injury and relieving pressure is how pressure injury is avoided. Pressure relief is accomplished automatically as often as every 30 seconds with our cushions.
Both of our custom wheelchair cushion systems, the APK2 and the SofTech, are coded E2609 for Medicare reimbursement and private insurance reimbursement and you do not need a doctor's prescription to purchase either of our cushions.
SofTech, shown below in the picture on the right, is our latest innovation in therapeutic seating. It goes a step beyond our APK2 cushion system in that it is a completely self- contained system with all of the electronics, battery and pump built into the wheelchair cushion, rather than in a separate controller.
If you already have a pressure sore, we can help you. We will hand build and custom configure a cushion system to provide the ideal environment to treat your pressure sores while you are able to be up and sitting, rather than confined to bed.
Our wheelchair cushion systems have one price regardless of degree of customization needed and there is no weight limit or cushion width or depth size restriction. The typical height is between 3.5 to 4.5 inches tall before weight is placed on the cushion.
We have helped thousands of people heal their pressure ulcers/sores while being up and active. If you or a loved one has pressure sores, please give us a call and speak to one of our dedicated representatives. This clinically proven technology can help you live the life you deserve; free of pressure sores.
