All cushions are upholstered in a 4-way stretch, vapour permeable fabric and are covered with the chair ‘overlay’ which comprises 4-way stretch vapour permeable material and a 12mm layer of Visco foam. In the case of the Cushionair cushion, the overlay part can be fitted underneath the cushion so the user is sitting directly onto the cells of the cushion (although the cushion tends to fit better if the overlay is fitted over the top).

Visco is a static, pressure reducing cushion which we suggest for users who are at high risk of developing pressure damage but whose skin is intact*.

This comprises a 3” layer of standard foam then a top layer of 1” Visco foam. Visco is a heat sensitive memory foam and takes a certain amount of time to warm up so the user immerses into it. Some users who have reduced core body heat (i.e. some neurological conditions), may find the cushion a little firm. In these cases, the Castellated cushion may be a good alternative.

The principle is that as the foam warms up, it conforms to the user’s shape thereby providing a larger surface area of contact and therefore lower pressure – especially around the vulnerable ITs. This is called ‘immersion’. to fit better if the overlay is fitted over the top).
As can be seen from the pressure mapping results below, Castellated is similar in performance to the Visco cushion but does not include Visco. In other words, this is a static, pressure reducing cushion which we suggest for users who are at high risk of developing pressure damage but whose skin is intact*.

Castellated consists of standard foam with a castellated top surface which provides improved immersion. This cushion is useful for users who have reduced core body heat and for users who may find the Visco cushion too firm.

The Cushionair cushion is a dynamic pressure relieving cushion which is normally recommended for users who have developed pressure damage.
There is a dial on the cushion pump which allows the cushion to be adjusted: soft through to firm. This setting is adjusted primarily in terms of comfort and is not purely based on the user’s weight.

The overlay part can be fitted underneath the overlay so the user is sitting directly onto the cells of the cushion (although the cushion tends to fit better if the overlay is fitted over the top). As standard when supplied from Enable Lifecare, the overlay will be fitted on top of the cushion cells. This slightly decreased the effect of the dynamic therapy but provides superior comfort and stability.
