About Airospring - Sitting on air
AiroSpring is the result of extensive research carried out by the teams at Baltex Technical Textiles and The University of Bolton. Following years of research and development, a new standard in healthy seating is ready for you to experience. AiroSpring uses the latest innovative 3D fabric technology that embodies everything that is new and bold in textile and cushion design.
The technical and medical textile department at The University of Bolton is home to one of the leading institutions in the industry. It’s got a highly qualified, experienced and knowledgeable team, who are committed to improving textile technology.
The fabric used in all of AiroSpring's products is provided by Baltex, one of the leading manufacturers of knitted 3D Spacer fabrics in the UK, with a rich 182-year history of making the highest quality knitted products. Baltex was founded in 1831 by two brothers in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Masters of knitting and fabric technology, they registered patent after patent before winning a gold medal for innovation at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Pressure Relief Devices from an Award Winning Company
The company was awarded the Innovation Prize for Technical Textiles at the 2010 Textile Institute World Conference thanks to the incredible invention of microclimate, pressure relief cushions.
Our AS range of pressure relief cushions (consisting of the AS100, 200 and 300) are the triumph of all this research. We have spent years finding the perfect materials to make each of the three layers of fabric out of, chosen for breathability, support, weight distribution, durability and non-irritation. All this time spent in the pursuit of making the best pressure relief cushions on the market has meant that we are now the experts, and will constantly be looking for ways to improve our methods and products.
Three layers of fabric allow us to concentrate on a different benefit and feature for each one. The three layers spread the weight around between them so that the pressure isn’t localised on just one small area. This prevents numbness caused by loss of blood flow and massively reduces the risk of pressure ulcers. Wheelchair users and those who sit down for long periods are most at risk of this very painful and totally avoidable condition.
Breathability of the fabric and the microclimate inducing nature of it keeps your skin cool and dry. This is important for comfort and, also important because heat and perspiration are other leading causes of pressure ulcers. The materials used in the design of our products are also chosen for their non-irritability and non-allergenic properties, so there’s little chance of nasty skin reactions when you use them.
Carefully chosen partnerships and research allow us to construct the cushions with a difference. Our items are 100% unique to us. Our products have been verified in their effectiveness by the British Standard EN 11092 and we have been granted a full patent for our technology, meaning you only get this level of quality and comfort from us and our products.

Along with pressure relief cushions, we’ve also got the AS45 Back Support Cushion and the MT230 Mattress Relief Topper. This variety means that our products can cover you whatever your situation.
