The AirLITE Cushion is appropriate for clients who:
- Have partial to full sensation
- Are able to perform independent weight shifts
- Require basic posture support and comfort
- Require basic positioning needs to assist in the prevention of skin breakdown
- Need a lightweight, non-adjustable seating system
By combining a contoured, anatomical-shaped foam with a pre-set, sealed Air Flotation component, the AirLITE® enables users to sit comfortably for an extended time. AirLITE's technology and design provides the comfort you want and the support you need.
Foam wears out. Most foam cushions will compress over time. The AirLITE cushion's pre-set, sealed Air Flotation component provides comfort and peace of mind you can count on long after other “just foam” cushions have lost their effectiveness.
The contoured shape of the AirLITE cushion provides users with support for basic positioning needs. Leg (femur) troughs and an ischial well provide support for lower extremity control, stability and comfort.
It's easy. With the pre-set Air Flotation component, just put the AirLITE cushion in the wheelchair and comfort, enhanced alignment and durability are achieved. No adjustment necessary.
The AirLITE cushion weighs only 2.0 pounds (1kg). Compare this to alternative technologies at two to four times the weight of the AirLITE. A lightweight cushion makes a mobility system easier to propel and transport.
