Therapists recommend the Reflex for clients who are at moderate risk of skin breakdown. Therapists value the Reflex because the set amount of immersion conforms to the client’s body, providing comfort and added stability. Reflex is ideal for nursing homes, hospitals and other clinical environments where an effective, low-maintenance skin protection wheelchair cushion is required. Users and caregivers appreciate Reflex’s ease of use.
Meridian is made for clients at high risk of tissue breakdown and a high level of positioning needs. Therapists recommend the Meridian for clients with motor and neurological dysfunction due to spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy or brain injury. Therapists value the integral pre-ischial ridge and wedge effect created by the Meridian’s dual chambers. Users value its low weight, comfort and ease of use: No pumps or accessories. No kneading or manipulation. Exceptional pressure distribution, positioning stability, comfort and simplicity make the Meridian VARILITE’s most advanced skin protection cushion.
Icon Back System
The Icon system keeps users, caregivers and techs in mind by delivering fast installation, versatile adjustability and simple operation. Icon backs include VariLock hardware and VARILITE air-foam flotation cushions for superior comfort. Just two components need to be attached to the chair; all others are pre-installed. Adjusting angle, depth, width and height for an Icon back is simple: Adjustment screws are accessible from the rear of the back support or outside of the cane brackets, so adjustments can be made while the user is in the chair. Operating the system is as easy as opening the caps and sliding the back support out of the hardware.
Designed for wheelchair users at high risk of tissue breakdown and symmetrical positioning needs, the Evolution offers superior pressure distribution, positioning, stability and comfort. The user-friendly cushion requires no pumps, kneading, manipulation or accessories to function. VARILITE’s Air-Foam Floatation gives the Evolution an ultralight weight without compromising pressure distribution and comfort. The Evolution is coded E2622/E2623 and is commonly used for wheelchair users with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy or traumatic brain injury.
JUNIOR Seat Cushion
Key Kids’ Words: Designed using anthropometric data
The JUNIOR cushion is designed to provide a comfortable, stable foundation for exploration and adventure. Lightweight, multi-stiffness foam promotes immersion, stability and positioning, while a washable, water-resistant cover lets kids be kids. The JUNIOR has a VARILITE self-inflating valve for quick and easy adjustments. Thanks to the use of anthropometric data, VARILITE’s engineers created this cushion with a full range of size-appropriate seating and positioning items.
The JUNIOR Seat Cushion is now available in five sizes and provides a comfortable, stable foundation for exploration and adventure. Lightweight multi-stiffness foam promotes immersion, stability and positioning while the washable, water-resistant cover lets kids be kids. Each cushion features a VARILITE self-inflating valve for quick and easy adjustments. Designed specifically for children using anthropometric data, the JUNIOR line features a full range of size-appropriate seating and positioning items to support children in their mobility devices, allowing them to follow their imagination.
Designed for consumers at moderate risk of skin breakdown, the Reflex has a set amount of immersion that conforms to the user’s body to provide comfort and added stability. Air-Foam Floatation dampens impact and vibration, and a built-in device automatically releases a portion of air when the user sits on the cushion, which reinflates when weight is lifted off it. These features make for an effective, low-maintenance cushion.
The Meridian, with its E2624/E2625 coding,
is designed for clients at a high risk of skin
breakdown who also require symmetrical
positioning support, including prevention
of posterior pelvic tilt. The Meridian is an
adjustable, self-inflating, dual-chambered
multi-stiffness foam and air cushion with
dual valves. Wave contoured, closed-cell
bases are available for added postural
positioning; a closed-cell Wedge is also an
option. The Meridian is available in widths
from 12" to 24" and depths from 14" to
20" and has a weight capacity of 750 lbs.

JUNIOR Cushions & Back Supports
Kids are not just miniature adults, which is why VARILITE used
anthropometric data to create its JUNIOR line of seat cushions
and back supports for active users. Seat cushions are available in a
10x10" size using Air-Foam Floatation. Back supports come in Mid
or Deep configurations in
a 10" size that fits chairs
measuring 9" to 11". Backs
use Air-Foam Floatation with
A non-adjustable cushion for
clients at moderate risk of skin
breakdown, the Reflex offers
air-foam floatation that does not
need adjustment. A built-in air-release
device lets some air out, and
the fixed amount of immersion
prevents bottoming out while
conforming to the client’s body
for pressure distribution, comfort
and stability. Reflex automatically
reinflates when the client moves
off of it. In Widths and depths
starting at 12", and up to 20".
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2016:
When all else fails and we trial the Evolution cushion, it almost always
comes up big. A foam and air cushion, the Evolution does not require
a hand pump because it fills itself when the valve is opened and the
foam expands. Sit on it, open
the valve, let out air, close the
valve and you have a “custom
contoured” seat cushion that is
very lightweight. Excellent for
use on an ultralight chair when
trying to reduce as much weight

Wave is an adjustable skin-protection seat

Floatation construction, a Pressure Setting
