Multi-Density Foam Cushion
The VARILITE Evolution is the cushion of choice for wheelchair users with a high risk of tissue breakdown.
The Varilite Evolution Wheelchair Cushion offers superior pressure distribution making it ideal for users who have a high tissue breakdown risk and who need symmetric positioning in the chair.
It is recommended for people with neurological or motor dysfunctions caused by injury to the spinal cord, multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy.
This cushion provides outstanding pressure distribution, excellent postural support, and increased comfort in a lightweight, easy to use cushion.
The unique Varilite Air-Foam flotation system allows the air to be released from the cushion to provide the optimum support and comfort. The PDV-pressure setting valve allows a selected pressure to be chosen and when it is reached the valve automatically shuts off, so cushion adjustment is simple and standardised.
The user is immersed into the cushion to the perfect level for comfort, safety and optimal pressure distribution. This system also increases user comfort as it effectively dampens vibrations and impacts for a smoother ride.
There are three types of foam used in this cushion. The outer part and the medial thigh supporter are made of a firm consistency foam for increased support and these minimise external and internal rotation of the legs, while softer foams are used in parts where greater protection from pressure sores is required. The pre-ischial ridge and the pelvic bucketing assist in maintaining the correct pelvic positioning and the thigh troughs help the femurs find a neutral position.
The VARILITE Evolution is the cushion of choice for wheelchair users with a high risk of tissue breakdown and symmetric positioning needs. VARILITE Air-Foam Floatation makes the Evolution ultralight, without compromising pressure distribution and support.
This cushion comes with either a mesh or an incontinence cover, both of which are removable and machine-washable. The breathable four-way stretch fabric on the upper part allows correct adjustment to the contours of the cushion, while the non-slip nylon fabric of the underside provides hard-wearing durability. The cushion is secured in the chair with a hook and loop system for added safety.
