A neoprene cushion that consists of a series of air filled cells which can move independently. This cushion has four quadrants of air cells, enabling the level of air to be set independently in each quadrant to conform to the shape of the user. A bariatric option is available.

General Details

Extra product information

Material
The cushion is made of fire resistant neoprene rubber
The cushion can be washed with soap and water or steam autoclaved

Cover
The cover consists of two way stretch material
It is removable and machine washable
Slip resistant material is featured on the base of the cover

Dry Flotation Technology
The manufacturer states there are 4 principles of the Dry Flotation Technology
Roho cushions are constructed of individual cells that can move independently of each other, enabling the cushion to move with the user and contour to their shape
The manufacturer states that the cellular design enables the user to immerse into the cushion creating low surface tension
The manufacturer states that as a result of immersing into the cushion, forces and pressures pushing back against the person are kept equal at all points, resulting in greater contact area between the user and cushion
The manufacturer indicates that the design of the surface of each cell as well as the ability of cells to move independently reduces friction and shear forces

Features
The neoprene rubber is able to be patched or repaired if required due to punctures
The manufacturer states that the separate air cells facilitate air circulation
The cushion is provided with a cover, repair kit and hand inflation pump

Method of Use in Setting Initial Air Level
It is recommended that professional advice be sought prior to and during inflation the cushion to ensure appropriate use and inflation levels
Place the cushion on the chair or wheelchair on which it is to be used correct side up with the Isoflo Memory Control Unit facing forward
Open the valve by turning counter clockwise
Ensure the Isoflo Memory Control Unit is open
Place the flexible hose of the hand pump over the valve and over inflate the cushion so it begins to slightly arch upwards
Remove the pump and quickly close the air valve by turning it in a clockwise direction
The user needs to sit centrally on the Roho cushion ensuring posture is correct
Open the air valve allowing air to be released and the user to immerse into the cushion
The manufacturer states that there should be approximately 1.25cm of air between the lowest bony prominences of the user and the bottom of the cushion (this may be gauged by placing a hand between the bony prominences of the user and the cushion)
Close the air valve

Adjustment of the Isoflo Memory Control
At the front of the cushion is the Isoflo Memory Control, a locking and unlocking mechanism for the cushion
It is positioned in the middle of the front of the cushion, and is a small cylinder with a green button at one end and a red button at the other end
When the red button is pushed in, it closes each quadrant of the cushion preventing air circulation between the four quadrants
When the green button is pushed in, it opens each quadrant enabling air to circulate throughout the entire cushion
The cushion is filled with air via a hand pump placed over the air valve in one corner of the cushion

Application
The manufacturer states that this cushion is effective for users who
Need a moderate amount of postural support
Have asymmetrical postures
Are at risk of skin breakdown
Foot propel
Have partial to no sensation

Customisation
To meet individual needs Roho cushions may be customised, such as the following
Vary the number of valves and compartments
Vary cell height
Add or delete cell rows beyond dimensions of standard size models
Remove sections, such as providing cut out areas
Ventilation and drainage openings through the cushion base

Factors to Consider

There are many things to consider when selecting pressure care products including nutrition, skin moisture, level of mobility, age shear, friction, location of pressure ulcer (if present) and hygiene. Any comments regarding level of pressure care is a suggestion made by suppliers as a guide to assist with selection, and this may differ from brand to brand. When selecting pressure care products it is strongly advised that a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a health professional to encourage correct product selection and monitoring of product effectiveness.

As a result of air being able to circulate throughout the entire cushion, it allows the cushion to constantly conform to the shape and movements of the user. This allows the cushion to adapt to individual needs and posture
Movement within the cushion may result in instability for some users

Maintenance

Refer to the supplier and manufacturer manual for maintenance instructions and safety warnings.

Caution: Pressure Cushions & Mattresses

• All pressure reduction products must be monitored to prevent 'bottoming out'. This occurs when the user's weight bears down so hard on the product material that it is flattened and the bony parts are pressed against the surface below the cushion or mattress. Where bottoming out occurs even with correct use (e.g. correct inflation levels), a different product may need to be considered.

• Sometimes, due to the user deteriorating, the product may become unsuitable. Continuous monitoring is necessary and alternative products may be recommended.
