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, hand inflation pump and operating instructions
Two separate air valves are featured (one each side of the cushion)

Application

Are at high risk of skin breakdown

Have current impaired skin
Have a history of skin breakdown
Require assistance with weight shifts and transfers.
Can enhance positioning for a user with an asymmetrical posture

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. The manufacturer states that this allows the cushion to adapt to individual needs and posture
Movement within the cushion may result in instability for some users

Method of Use

Adjustment
It is recommended that professional advice be sought prior to and during inflation of 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 access to the air valves (one air valve located in each corner on one side of the cushion). Each side of the cushion is adjusted seperately via the following method
Open the air valve by turning counter clockwise
Place the flexible hose of the hand pump over the valve and over inflate the cushion compartment 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. The dual compartment cushion can be placed so the compartments run front to back or side to side depending on postural needs
Open the air valve allowing air to be released and the user to immerse into the cushion
There should be approximately 40mm of air between the 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
