 Product Description

  • The main cushion component was designed with a completely sealed PVC liner containing a front and rear chamber. The cushion liner holds Comfort Cells coated in a silicone lubricant giving them a slow moving yet fluid like motion when conforming to the patient.
  • The liner also has an air valve that when opened allows all the excess air to escape after a patient sits on it. Once the air has escaped and the cushion has taken on the fitted shape of the patient, the air valve can be closed and the cushion will then retain its shape. This vacuum forming technique with the silicone coated Comfort Cells captures the patient's shape every time.
  • A foam base is installed separately under the main cushion component to give addition femoral support and Trochanter loading to the main Vicair cushion.
  • Base foam has a separate cover made of Comfort Tek material using a water proof zipper giving it superior incontinence protection and infection control. Foam to be removed while laundering cover.
  • Available with Glidewear Technology
  • Weight capacity 330 lbs. 

 

The First Cushion Cover to Provide Shear Reduction 

 

This new cover technology is for healing and reducing the risk of Decubitus Ulcers by the use of a Shear Reduction Zone. This new zone is made from an ultra-slick and extremely breathable material. It is shaped and located to work only in the very specific and high risk region (for most users) located under their bony prominences.
 
This extremely low friction zone drastically eliminates the daily stresses seen on soft tissue, reducing the probability of break down from the effects of shear typically found under those weight bearing bony prominences The ultimate key to this technology's success is not only having an extremely Low Friction Zone, but also having High Friction Zones to help keep the user positioned throughout the day. Having the High Friction Zone through the Gluteal section of the cushion, as well as across the under sides of the thighs eliminates the risk of a patient's pelvic position “slipping” into that of a sacral seated position.
 
This new cover has high-stretch characteristics, breathability, and provides great heat dissipation. The GlideWear technology option may be embedded into both core cover materials found at the Comfort Company, Stretch-Air and Comfort-Tek.
PLEASE NOTE UPCHARGE OF $38 FOR GLIDE WEAR

  

Why GlideWear?

 Shear Reduction Zone

  • Specifically designed to reduce the risk of Decubitus Ulcer formation and also promotes the healing process of existing problem areas.
  • Reduces the risks of Decubitus Ulcers forming underneath the weight bearing bony prominences by greatly reducing the effects of shear forces, a known contributor to the breakdown of tissue.
  • In conjunction with a very low peak and average pressure readings on a cushion, the GlideWear shear reduction panel acts as a great secondary approach to ulcer prevention.

Micro-Climate Control

  • The GlideWear shear reduction panel is made with a 100% breathable material allowing for micro-climate control at the cushion surface.

Improved Comfort

  • Reduction of shear forces allows for a more comfortable seating surface for the user.
