Matrx Flo-tech Lite Paediatric Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion

For those who spend long periods of time sitting in a chair or wheelchair, high pressure areas may lead to the development of pressure sores if the proper pressure relief cushion isn't used. The Matrx Flo-tech Lite Paediatric Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion is made with a high-quality contoured foam surface, providing stability, postural support and weight distribution. Castellated to reduce shear, this cushion is suitable for those at low risk of pressure sore development, and is particularly suited to paediatric clients.

This cushion is available in a range of sizes and with a choice of four covers. Select your desired options using the drop-down menus above.

Stability and Support

This cushion works to ensure the user is as stable and secure in their seated position as possible, and is particularly suited to paediatric or small-framed users. The pommel at the front of the cushion ensures the user's femurs are in a midline position, promoting proper posture and allowing air circulation. Finally, the contoured design of the cushion also results in raised edges for increased lateral support, further enhancing stability.

Contoured and Castellated

The contoured foam of this cushion results in a large contact surface with the user, providing maximum weight distribution. Since the foam is castellated, air circulation is enhanced, and the cushion sections can move slightly with the user. This movement helps to reduce shear and friction forces, further boosting the cushion's level of pressure relief.

Ingress-Resistant Covers

The covers supplied with this cushion are ingress-resistant to improve both hygiene and longevity. Treated with a fluorocarbon-based fluid repellent finish to prevent wetting and reduce risk of contamination, these covers prevent fluid ingress and aid in the prevention of pressure ulcers.
