General Details

Extra product information

Materials
The cushion is a 60mm(2.5") thick seat support comprised of a single air cell containing multiple densities of foam. Firmer foam is located around the edges of the cushion, soft foam is located under the buttocks and medium foam is used under the thighs.
The tapered shape makes the cushion suitable for active users and rigid frame wheelchairs.
Two types of fabric are bonded to the Zoid PSV - two-way stretch knit on the top and nylon on the bottom. Fabrics are puncture and water resistant.

Cover
The incontinence cover is machine washable.
It is made of two-way stretch fabric with reticulated foam sewn to the inside to aid in breathability.
The underside of the cover is slip-resistant.
A mesh cover is also available.

Adjustment
Pressure Setting Valve (PSV)
Sitting on a fully inflated cushion, open the PSV to one of three pre-set positions.
When the PSV senses that the desired level of immersion has been reached, it stops releasing air.
Close the PSV. The cushion then remains in the contoured position.
The cushion can be re-inflated by opening the valve again once the weight has been taken off it.

Application
The supplier states that the cushion is appropriate for a user at medium risk of developing pressure areas.

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.
