Short Description

Contoured-Fit cushions consist of layered contoured foam including a visco-elastic liner and pressure relief options of visco-elastic foam, Syner-gel or an air bladder. The range can be modified to accommodate a leg length discrepancy, a pelvic obliquity and either an anterior or posterior slope. A Dartex zipper cover is standard. Available in a range of widths and depths starting at 300mm (12 inches).

Additional Info

More Details

Materials
* Comfort-Fit cushions are designed to match the ergonomic shape of individuals through the use of a contoured foam base that will load safe surfaces first and then soft poly-foam liner contours to the boney areas of the pelvis.
* Two foam firmnesses in the base foam with options of visco foam insert, gel insert and air insert

Cover
* A Dartex zipper cover is standard
Cover options
* Spacer Mesh or reverse Dartex may be selected
* Additional removable covers may be ordered in either zipper or slip on styles.

Application
The supplier states that there are three tiers of pressure relief within the PRM cushion range: visco foam (low pressure relief), gel insert (medium pressure relief) and air insert (high pressure relief).

Customisation
* Selection of ischial inserts. See below

Pressure Relief Options
Contoured-Fit Visco-elastic foam
* Visco-elastic foam (Sun-mate) will provide pressure equalisation with virtually no maintenance.

Contoured-Fit Syner-Gel
* The Syner-gel option provides pressure equalisation as well as some shear reduction through use of a Syner-gel? pad located under the high-risk areas of the pelvis.

Contoured-Fit Air pressure relief
* Air pressure relief option features a Star Air insert which will provide pressure equalisation through use of an adjustable air bladder. The combination of base foam and air provides stability with good pressure relief.

Modification and Mounting options
* Dimensional modifications include a leg length discrepancy of 1 or 2 inches, a pelvic obliquity wedge of 1/2 or 1 inch and either an anterior or posterior slope.
* Mounting options include a 1/8 or 1/4 inch rigidiser, a drop base with 1 or 7/8 inch mounting hardware, notches for seat rails and notches for back posts/canes.

Considerations

* All cushions 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. Where bottoming out occurs even with correct use (eg correct choice and depth of foam, correct inflation level) , a different product may need to be considered.
* The gel cells or fluid on the top layer of the cushion can be punctured
* Ensure that the item is not accidentally placed upside down or back to front.
* It is advisable that a health professional be consulted when considering a suitable pressure care product.
