ROHO's High Profile Single Compartment wheelchair cushion features their industry-leading Dry Floatation technology that provides unmatched skin/soft tissue protection and maximum pressure distribution while decreasing friction and shear.
The adjustable 4.25" interlocking air cells allow the cushion to shape to the user’s body minimizing tissue deformation and maximizing blood flow. These adjustments are made while the user is seated to accommodate changing needs in positioning and skin/soft tissue integrity throughout the day and over time. The separated air cells allow air circulation to reach the surface of the skin providing a cooling environment for the user.
This air wheelchair cushion comes standard with a two-way stretch cover that features polyester sides with zipper closure and a non-skid PVC-coated bottom. This non-skid bottom along with Velcro straps that attach the cushion to the chair help keep the wheelchair cushion in place during daily activities and transfers.

The wife has used foam and gel pads in the past with limited success. Since she has been using the Roho she has not had any pressure sore problems for years. She started with a low profile which lasted many years and now has this wonderful high profile for the last three years. We won't go back to gels.
