A simple, comfortable and highly functional
general-use solution for users with mild
support and positioning needs, the Invacare
Absolute Wheelchair Cushion features
molded, dual-firmness foam for increased
comfort and support. This cushion features
gentle contouring to aid in centering in the
seat. A breathable, water-repellent mesh
fabric cover dissipates heat and moisture.
The no-slip bottom keeps the cushion in
place all day. Molded polyurethane foam
is lightweight and durable. The shaped
cushion bottom is designed for effective use
on taut sling upholstery.
JAY Fusion with Cryo Technology
CryoFluid Technology is designed to provide
one of the highest degrees of skin protection
by addressing the four primary risks for
pressure injuries: pressure, shear, temperature
and moisture. It is designed to actively
cool the seated skin surface to a therapeutic
temperature range and reduces perspiration
with extended sitting times. The JAY Fluid
with Cryo Technology actively cools for up
to eight hours, “resets” during off-loading,
and the capacity for cooling won’t diminish
over time. This technology is available on JAY
Fusion (pictured) and JAY Syncra cushions.
Dynamic Systems Inc.
SunMate is premium, medical-grade viscoelastic
foam found in many of today’s top
wheelchair cushions. Its open-cell structure
maximizes airflow to reduce heat buildup.
Extraordinary support alleviates sitting
fatigue by uniformly distributing pressure
while absorbing and dissipating impact
energy. SunMate allows for just the right
level of immersion for optimum positioning
and comfort without bottoming out. This
orthopaedic cushion line offers 10 levels
of support to accommodate any weight;
cushions are available in standard, sheet and
custom sizes. Wedges and generic contoured
cushion styles prevent sliding.
Ideal for users who want comfort, greater
sitting stability, improved skin outcomes, and
incontinence/spill protection, the Ride Forward
surrounds the pelvis with supportive contours
while reducing pressure around at-risk bony
prominences. This helps improve postural
control and balance without compromising skin
protection. A top viscoelastic layer provides
protection and comfort as it conforms to the
body shape. The cushion’s contour, spacer fabric
outer cover, and inner incontinence-resistant
cover work together to keep both the user and
the cushion dry. Even under significant load, the
spacer fabric outer cover does not compress.
Merits Health Products, Inc.
Precision Comfort Deep
The PC Deep cushion features a high-density,
high-resilience base with a deep well. High-density
foam is used in combination with a
super-soft silicone gel insert in the overlay.
The result is a design created to provide
long-lasting support with deep submersion
of the wheelchair user’s ischial tuberosities
and coccyx to promote superior pressure
reduction. The structure of the Precision
Contour Deep cushion helps to prevent
sacral sitting and encourage proper posture
to reduce user fatigue.
Matrx PSP Cushion
The Invacare Matrx PSP (Posture Seat
Polymer) cushion is HCPCS coded E2607

Startex inner cover. Available in 14", 16",
17", 18" and 20" seat widths; 300-lb. weight
The JUNIOR seat cushion is 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
VARILITE JUNIOR line features a full range
of size-appropriate seating and positioning
items to support children in their mobility
devices, allowing them to go where their
imagination takes them.
For wheelchair users looking for an accurately fit custom seating solution with a softer, more forgiving sitting surface, Ride Designs introduces the Custom AccuSoft. It’s made specifically to match each user’s shape. Ride CAM Wedges can be used to adjust cushion contours to accommodate weight changes, tissue atrophy and postural changes.
