A modular cushion system that is designed to assist in active correction and management of posture. The modular components are made from a firm, high density foam. It comes with positioning wedges and hook and loop tape fixings that can be cut to meet the needs of individual users. A large dual gel sac covers the top surface of the cushion. It is designed to provide protection for high risk users.

Extra product information

Design
The geometrically formed sections on the surface create contouring to position thighs and buttocks comfortably. The raised sides and back help to contain the body, providing postural support.
The foam contains gel to reduce shearing.
The moulded design cradles the body, to dissipate weight away from specific pressure points and reducing the risk of pressure sores developing.
labels clearly indicate front and back of cushion.

Polymer/Gel Sac
This contains a white thixotropic polymer paste, which has a fluid consistency. When sat on, the paste displaces to conform to bony prominences.
A large gel sac covers the entire top surface of the cushion.
An additional layer of gel is incorporated under the ischial and sacral area to provide greater pressure distribution.
The Polymer remains in a liquid state at all times and is unaffected by external temperatures.

Modular System
Hook and loop material has been added to the ischial well, femoral shelf and pommel regions of the cushion as well as the bottom of the cushion base to accommodate the modular component parts.
All modular parts are made from high density CMHR foam and have been fitted with hook and loop to ensure they remain in position.

Covers
The Solution Xtra Cushion comes with a Black Ingress Resistant (continence) Cover.
The cover has been designed to allow for expansion when modular component parts are added.
There are two zips with colour coded sliders - blue to open the cover and green to expand the cover.
The zips are three sided and can be fully opened to allow adjustment of the components as necessary.
All covers are waterproof, vapour permeable (breathable) and have a handle for carrying and a slip resistant base.
The covers and the foam are impregnated with an anti bacterial agent and are flame retardant.

Cover maintenance
It is necessary to reactivate the fluorocarbon finish after laundering to ensure that it remains effective. This is best achieved by laundering the cover at a temperature in excess of 80°C then tumble drying on a low heat setting.

Sizes
The Solution Xtra Cushion is available in four standard sizes: 410 x 410mm, 430 x 430mm, 460 x 410mm and 510mm x 460mm as well as in 40 other non-standard sizes.

Factors To Consider

The manufacturer states that the cushion suitable for people at very high risk of developing pressure sores, as well as those with already established tissue damage.
The modular system of postural supports allows the cushion to be customised to meet the requirements of a variety of users and conditions.
Avoid the use of additional covers or padding, between the user and the cushion as this could reduce the cushions effectiveness.
It is important for the user to reposition themselves, or to be repositioned, on a regular basis. This relieves pressure and helps prevent tissue compression and potential pressure ulcer formation.
All cushions must be monitored to prevent 'bottoming out'. This occurs when the user's weight bears down so hard on the cushion material that it is flattened and the bony parts are pressed against the surface below the cushion. Where bottoming out occurs, even with correct use (eg correct choice and depth of foam), a different product may need to be considered.
