Can I Use the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion?
The Repose Pressure Relief Cushion is suitable if you're at risk or very high risk of developing pressure ulcers. It provides effective pressure redistribution to prevent pressure ulcers, and is designed to improve your comfort when seated in a standard static chair.
This Repose cushion is also suitable for users with pressure-related tissue damage, though clinical supervision is recommended for more severe damage. The cushion is suitable for bearing weight of up to 139kg.
The Pressure Relief Cushion is designed
for use on a standard static chair
How Does the Repose Cushion Relieve Pressure?
Low air technology in the cushion distributes weight and pressure evenly without losing shape. All Repose products feature Smart Valve Technology, which automatically ensures the cushion inflates to the optimal pressure. This pressure has been demonstrated over time to be the optimal balance between comfort and efficacy for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.
Is the Pump Included with the Cushion?
Yes, the pump is included with this Repose Pressure Relief Cushion here.
How Quickly Does the Cushion Inflate?
When inflated with the pump, the Repose Pressure Cushion inflates in a matter of seconds. This makes it quick and easy to use as soon as it arrives with you.
Can I Use the Pressure Relief Cushion with a Recliner Chair?
Designed for use in a static chair, the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion is not suitable for use with a recliner chair. However, you can receive the same pressure-relieving benefits with the Repose Contur Rise Recliner Pressure Relief Overlay, which is specially designed to improve your comfort and prevent pressure ulcer development when you're seated in a recliner chair.
Can I use the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion When Lying Down?
While the Pressure Relief Cushion may provide some individuals with improved comfort when lying down, it is recommended primarily for use in a static chair. For pressure relief while lying down, we recommend the Repose Mattress Pressure Relief Overlay if you are at high risk of pressure ulcer development when in bed.
Please note that the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion is not suitable for individuals with unstable spinal fractures.
Can I Use the Pressure Relief Cushion When Travelling?
Yes! The Pressure Relief Pillow deflates to a compact size, and can be stored inside the pump, which doubles up as the cushion's packaging. This is particularly useful if you travel a lot on long-haul flights or extended journeys, and are looking to improve the comfort of your seat.
Does the Repose Pressure Cushion Include a Cover?
A cushion cover is not included with the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion. However, a Pressure Relief Cushion Cover can be purchased separately, and this will help you to protect your cushion and keep it performing its best for longer.
Please note that the Pressure Relief Cushion is designed to be used on top of an existing chair cushion. This allows you to achieve maximum comfort from your pressure relief cushion.
Can I Wash the Pressure Relief Cushion?
The Pressure Relief Cushion can be easily and thoroughly cleaned with soap and water, as well as with a chlorine-based disinfectant (non-phenol based). This makes it ideal if you're purchasing the cushion for clinical or community environments where more than one patient will be using it.

How Often Should I Re-Inflate the Pressure Relief Cushion?
It's recommended that you check the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion on a daily basis. You should re-inflate the cushion if you feel that it has begun to deflate naturally.
Is the Repose Cushion Latex Free?
Yes, the Repose Pressure Relief Cushion is a latex-free inflatable seat cushion.
Is the Repose Cushion Fire Resistant?
The Repose Pressure Relief Cushion has been tested to conform with BS: 7175 Crib Test 5 (Methods of test for the ignitability of bed covers and pillows by smouldering and flaming ignition sources).
What Do I Do If My Cushion Gets a Puncture?
While it's rare that a Repose cushion develops a puncture, in the unlikely event of a puncture occurring in your cushion we recommend that you replace the cushion with a new one. There is no evidence to suggest that the same level of support is provided if Repose cushion is used after a puncture is repaired.
