The patented Airpulse PK2 (APK2) is a fully-automatic alternating pressure relief cushion. The primary function of the APK2 is to treat pressure sores (pressure ulcers) by providing the ideal healing conditions and performing automatic pressure relief. It can be used on manual wheelchairs, powerchairs or regular sitting chairs. The power source is a high-tech rechargeable battery.
The APK2 has a soft waterproof foam exterior and internal air bladders that automatically inflate and deflate multiple sets of internal air bladders. This action changes pressure contact points and stimulates circulation in the posterior. The internal air bladders are sized and positioned in such a way to address each client's unique needs and off-loading requirements.
You tell us where the trouble spot(s) or pressure ulcer(s) is located, and we build the cushion to off-load that area full-time, while stimulating circulation throughout the rest of the posterior.
The APK2 is coded E2609 for Medicare reimbursement and coverage by other insurance companies.

The APK2 eliminates the primary cause of pressure sores and skin breakdown, which is constant unrelieved pressure. A simple static air cushion cannot give pressure relief unless you move around and lift yourself up. The APK2 does this automatically.
