Moulded Low Memory Foam
The Matrx Flo-tech Lite Visco Firm Density Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion incorporates temperature-sensitive foam which conforms to the user's body. The contoured shape works to maximise the contact surface area, delivering exceptional levels of comfort and optimising pressure reduction.
Stability and Support
This cushion works to ensure the user is as stable and secure in their seated position as possible. The pommel in the centre contributes to pelvic stability and proper positioning while also improving posture. The contoured design of the cushion also results in raised edges for increased lateral support, further enhancing stability.
Low Profile Design
The low profile of this cushion makes it ideal for use with both chairs and wheelchairs. It also makes side transfers simple and efficient, improving safety and reducing injury risk for both patients and carers.
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.
