This is a positioning cushion with skin protection that is designed to provide increased immersion using a Viscoelastic Foam well. The Ki Mobility Axiom SP Visco Wheelchair Cushion provides premium positioning while still being comfortable.
Its important for all cushions to have a properly designed pre-contoured shape. Thats why Ki Mobility cooperated with Georgia Tech to study anthropometrics. Axiom SP Visco is designed to provide increased immersion, 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. A thick section of specially designed Viscoelastic foam deforms to immerse and envelop the Ischial Tuberosities.
The viscoelastic material is both viscous (changes shape slowly) and elastic (it returns to its original shape). It deforms and returns to shape very slowly. There is a significant lag between when you deform viscoelastic foam and when it returns to shape. Because energy is effectively absorbed and dissipated during the time lag there is less reaction force pushing back after deformation. The viscoelastic foam insert has unique hexagonal shapes which increase envelopment and reduce compression around the ischia and coccyx. The outer cover features a microclimatic spacer fabric layer with horseshoe design around the well for layer reduction allowing the foam insert to rest directly beneath the pleated 4-way stretch Lycra cover to reduce surface tension.
Axiom SP Visco 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. While the viscoelastic foam insert with unique hexagonal shapes increase envelopment and reduce compression around the ischia and coccyx. High-quality foam materials lead to a long-lasting, comfortable, and high-performing product.
Axiom SP Visco 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 Visco 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.
