Stealth Products, Inc.
TruComfort 2 with CoolCore
Stealth’s new line of cushions features patented, exclusive CoolCore Technology covers — chemical-free, four-way stretch material that offers moisture-wicking, moisture transportation and moisture evaporation properties. A color guide identifies the suggested HCPCS code and function family, identified with a color-coded PVC patch on each cushion. Other features include contoured, high-density foam bases; lateral and pre-ischial shelf contours; and a range of standard width and depth offerings.
Dynamic Systems Inc.
SunMate cushions combine high-impact energy absorption with soft pressure properties. Its slow spring-back enables it to contour to the user’s body, then slowly return to its original shape once pressure is removed. An open-cell structure maximizes airflow to reduce heat build-up, and viscoelastic properties allow the cushion to uniformly distribute pressure and absorb impact energy to alleviate sitting fatigue. Standard and custom sizes are available, as are wedges and contoured cushion shapes to meet the diverse needs of the wheelchair-using population.
Stimulite Contoured XS
Working with a client who has sensitive skin, but needs a higher level of skin protection and positioning? Supracor’s Stimulite Contoured XS offers “Total Pressure Management” — pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture to help prevent pressure injuries. Stimulite’s unique ventilation system of perforated honeycomb circulates air and evaporates moisture to minimize humidity. The 3.5" thick, ventilated XS weighs just 3.25 lbs. and has a soft top honeycomb layer fused to two bottom layers.
Operating in a similar way to an alternating mattress, the SofTech cushion was designed to both prevent future and help to heal existing pressure injuries. The cushion can be configured to offload directly under an existing injury. This means the client can sit while the cushion offloads under the injury and stimulates circulation throughout the rest of the posterior. SofTech changes pressure distribution as often as 60 times per hour and is therefore much more convenient than doing pressure-relief lifts. SofTech has no cushion size or weight limit, and each cushion is custom made for a specific client.
This compact, tilting rehab shower commode chair was specifically designed for growing children and smaller adults. The Raz-CAT’s adjustability and modularity make it ideal to fit kids and teens through childhood and beyond. An 18" wide seat frame and base allow the Raz-CAT to roll over most toilets. Adjustable height enables the unit to clear toilet bowls and provides easier hygiene access by the caregiver. Backs are available in 14", 16" and 18" widths and in 15" or 18" heights. Seat depth adjusts from 11" to 16" with the standard Raz-CAT seat. Tilt capacities up to 40° reduce pressure and provide optimal trunk positioning. With a frame that’s 3" shorter than the Raz-AT, the CAT (Compact Attendant Tilt) is more maneuverable than larger hygiene units, but still is compatible with Raz accessories and custom seats.
Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare
The Drive Medical Titanium Skin Protection and Positioning Gel/Foam cushion is designed to offer superior pressure redistribution via a combination of resilient, high-density foam and a dual-chamber gel bladder. Together, these media are designed to encourage proper posture through immersion into the cushion. A middle contour assists with positioning as a built-in leg abductor. The low-shear, fluid-resistant cover helps to maintain skin health, while the non-skid bottom offers added stability and safety. The cushion is HCPCS coded E2611/E2612.
The adjustable Fusion features a JAY Flow Fluid insert in a cushion that’s comfortable, stable and supportive. The contoured base is constructed from closed-cell foam, providing positioning of the pelvis and thighs, and reducing fluid migration in the insert. The Flow Fluid allows for deep pelvic immersion to distribute pressure and help prevent skin breakdown. Add the Flow Fluid insert to soft, dense foam, and you get a cushion that conforms to each user’s shape, adjusts to sitting positions and ensures proper fluid placement beneath bony prominences. A water-resistant inner cover helps prevent bacterial growth.
