This is a positioning cushion with skin protection that is designed to provide increased immersion and envelopment using a Hydrolite fluid bladder. The Ki Mobility Axiom SP Fluid Wheelchair Cushion provides premium positioning while still being comfortable.
The Axiom SP Fluid uses a Hydrolite fluid bladder instead of Viscoelastic Foam. The bladder rests directly under the super stretch outer cover, allowing it to conform to the tissues supporting the Ischial Tuberosities. Hydrolite is a non-Newtonian fluid that behaves as a solid under the force of gravity, but flows as a viscous fluid under load, which can help minimize shear. It is also incredibly light, eliminating the "weight penalty" of other fluid cushions. It is less temperature sensitive than other fluids, meaning it will provide more consistent performance regardless of climate.
Its important for all cushions to have a properly designed pre-contoured shape. Thats why Ki Mobility cooperated with Georgia Tech to study anthropometrics. The Axiom SP Fluid is designed to provide increased envelopment, allowing the trochanters to bear an effective load. This improves stability by widening the base of support and reduces the load the tissue that supports the Ischial Tuberosities must bear.
Axiom SP Fluid is constructed with foam that has a high IFD and density. The dual density polyurethane foam base offers firm support in the lower layer with a durable comfort layer on top. High-quality materials lead to a long-lasting, comfortable, and high-performing product.
Axiom SP Fluid has an innovative cover that is aesthetically pleasing with functional benefits for both the client and caregiver. The super 4-way stretch Lycra outer cover reduces surface tension while the pleated 4-way stretch inner cover with self-sealing zipper is water resistant and is easy to clean. The water-resistant zipper and loop zipper pull make it simple to don and doff the cover while protecting the foam. There is an easy-to-reach front handle with utility loops for hanging accessories.
If you're looking for a premium positioning cushion with skin protection and loaded with features, the Ki Mobility Axiom SP Fluid Wheelchair Cushion is the perfect fit!
It is important for all cushions (from General Use on up) to have a properly designed pre-contoured shape. Thats why Ki Mobility cooperated with Georgia Tech to study anthropometrics. The result - a design with the best possible cushion shapes to fit a wide range of sizes and needs.
Ki Mobility chose to use high-end materials in the foam and fluid components. You will see the foams have a high IFD and density, and the fluid is light-weight and non-temperature sensitive. Both elements lead to a long-lasting, comfortable and functional product.
You will see a consistent look and feel from all of the Axiom seating products. The cover has a sleek, minimalist look with a lot of high-end features like zipper pulls with a stow-away pocket, water resistant zippers and high-denier fabrics. Axiom cushion covers are not only highly functional, but are attractive enough to complement any chair, regardless of color.
