Safety in numbers
Vicair is the innovative solution to punctures and lack of stability when seated which are encountered with most other air cushions. Vicair uses SmartCells - small pyramid shapes filled with air located inside the cushion. When you sit on a Vicair wheelchair cushion, you do not sit on just one SmartCell, but hundreds of them, providing superior support, comfort and pressure distribution. A Vicair cushion will continue to perform even in the unlikely event of some SmartCells leaking, so your buttocks will always be protected from the risk of pressure damage. Plus, each SmartCell moves around the shape of your body within the cushion compartments allowing you to be stable and supported when sitting, which gives you more freedom to move your upper body.
The Vicair O2 range are machine washable solutions to feeling comfortable every day.
The design of these machine washable wheelchair cushions allow quick wipe down as well as being easy to wash – simply place it in the washing machine up to 60° (no laundry bag needed) and then hang up to dry for a few hours.
Can cause discomfort and increase your risk of skin breakdown. A Vicair O2 cushion allows fluid to pass through the cushion and be captured underneath, away from your skin.
The Vicair O2 cushion and TP cover design allows air to move through the cushion, preventing moisture build up.
