Forward Thinking Roho Technology
What makes the High Profile Cushion so highly regarded is that it uses Dry Floatation technology to provide exceptional pressure relief that is evenly distributed across the cushion. Roho discovered that the perfect envelopment depth is 7.5cm, which when combined with the effect of flotation in water creates exceptional pressure relief.
This was called Dry Floatation technology, and it led to the creation of pressure relief cushions that lower irritation, prevent friction and provide low surface tension that decreases tissue deformation. Using interconnected air cells that support the user in the air, the pressure is evenly distributed which offers enhanced blood flow across the entire cushion.
Offers Outstanding Pressure Relief
The High Profile Pressure relief is suitable for high risk pressure patients, including those with stage 1, 2 or 3 ulcers. Provided the wound is monitored by a caregiver, practitioner or health worker, it is possible that a Roho cushion using Dry Floatation technology can give the ulcer the space to heal.
