Pressure Relief Cushions by Airospring
Airospring produces wheelchair cushions and mattress overlays using patented 3D fabric technology.
Airospring is a revolution in the world of cushion ergonomics. Our pressure relief cushions distribute pressure effectively, dissipate heat and moisture and are highly porous inside generating a microclimate inside the cushion.
These products are designed for wheelchair users, and its size means that it will fit comfortable in any standard wheelchair. But, they’re not only for wheelchairs. They can also be used for long trips, your office chair or for any other times when you’re sitting down for a relatively long period of time.
Comprised of an outer sleeve and a 3D fabric inner layer, AiroSpring products are tough and durable – absolutely built to survive the stresses and strains of being an everyday use cushion. Additionally, as an added bonus all our products are machine washable. They are manufactured from high-tech 3 dimensional knitted fabrics. The product is made in the UK and is the result of five years of extensive research.
Choose AiroSpring – Sitting on Air
Airospring is the result of the work conducted by the textile engineers at Baltex Technical Textiles and academics from the University of Bolton. We are experts on the science of comfort and healthy support and we want to share what we’ve learned with you.
The ground-breaking technology behind Airospring was awarded a full patent in August 2014, proving the effectiveness of our range of pressure cushions. The AS200 has just been evaluated in the British Journal of Community nursing in June 2016.
We’ve thrown out the rulebook when it comes to cushions, gone is the foam of ordinary cushions – we’ve replaced it with our patented breathable 3D fabric technology. This fabric is made of three layers, which spread and dissipate the weight and pressure creating to a more comfortable and healthier seat. Our pressure relief cushions use the same 3D fabric technology as our mattress overlays. We have conducted pressure mapping trials to ISO 16840 standard to check the efficacy of pressure distribution.
Pressure distribution – this is the main problem when it comes to ordinary cushions. All of your weight can be concentrated on a small area and this can cause problems like reduced blood flow and eventually may lead to the development of pressure ulcers. Knitted Spacer Fabric works against this by spreading the pressure through near hydrostatic loading. Memory foam spreads under your body but does not necessarily provide any support.
Airflow – Airospring products are designed to facilitate airflow, reducing the possibility of perspiration and unpleasant odours developing after long periods of use.
Allergenic – Airospring pressure cushions are made of non-allergenic materials, and do not hold dust mites. As the cushions are machine washable they can be more hygienic than regular foam cushions.
