The new, patented Stabil-Air from Star
Cushion Products uses air and foam technologies
to provide higher levels of stability for
wheelchair users. Designed to offer greater
postural control and improved positioning,
the Stabil-Air cushion combines the dynamic
weight distribution benefits of an air cell
cushion with the stability and positioning
benefits found in foam cushions. Foam
supporter pieces strategically inhabit the
interior of selected air cells of this cushion
in an innovative design that helps users
to achieve both support and stability in
As Seen at ISS: Is this the best of both worlds? Star Cushion’s new Stabil-Air features contoured foam that resides inside each of the cushion’s air cells. The contoured foam is shorter in areas where the user’s legs, buttocks and coccyx interface with the cushion. Taller foam structures are contained in the air cells closer to the cushion’s perimeter. The foam provides stability and facilitates transfers, while also ensuring the user doesn’t ever fully bottom out, even if the cushion loses air. The Stabil-Air is available in four sizes — single-valve/adjustable skin protection in widths greater than and less than 22", plus dual- and quad-valve models with adjustable skin protection and widths greater than and less than 22".
