Product: SofTech Seating System
The SofTech is a customized alternating cushion system available from Aquila Corporation. This custom fabricated, alternating cushion system is specifically built to help treat existing pressure injury and prevent new injury. The SofTech is engineered to automatically change pressure distribution 60 times per hour. This automatic action provides pressure relief that is essential in the prevention of pressure sores. User-specific offloads under existing pressure sores allow healing of the sores. An optional integrated fan cools and dries the skin to assist healing. For the user’s convenience, all system components are integrated into the cushion base so there is no separate control box to mount.
There are three firmness selections based on the client’s weight. Safety features include low pressure and low battery alarms. A side panel on the SofTech cushion features a convenient battery charging port and firmness adjustment switch that beeps to indicate the firmness setting. The latest smart innovation to the SofTech is the automatic start/stop feature that activates the cushion only after the user sits and turns it off when the client transfers off. HCPCS Code: E2609. The SofTech is custom sized and made to be suitable for all clients from pediatric to bariatric since there is no weight limit. Incontinence covers, lumbar cushions, and pelvic positioning pads are also offered. An additional warranty beyond the 18-month factory warranty can be purchased. MSRP: $4,300.

PinDot Custom Seating
Product: PinDot Customized Specialized Molded Seating Systems
The CLIP, “Color Laser Imaging by Pin Dot,” puts the process of custom mold image capturing in the clinician’s hands using a laser camera attached to a tablet to scan and capture the shape and send it to PinDot. As a fully customized seating system designed specifically for each end user, PinDot utilizes combinations of foam, gel, and air technologies for support, pressure distribution, and comfort. Seat and back platforms may be constructed using plywood or aluminum base materials to build upon. Plywood base materials also incorporate “T” nuts that are fastened to the wood and used in the attachment installation of all hardware. When aluminum is the platform of choice, then all hardware is fastened directly to the aluminum base. Support surfaces are manufactured using molding technology and may be constructed by using a combination of several types of foam. The company also utilizes various “overlay” foams for added pressure distribution and comfort as well as gel and air technologies in specific locations typically associated with pressure and a high risk for skin breakdown. PinDot may be installed on many Invacare or Freedom wheelchairs and delivered together as one package. HCPCS Codes: Seats: E2609, Backs: E2617. Pricing varies upon prescription requirements.

Tekscan’s CONFORMat is a portable pressure mapping system designed to identify and quantify areas of high pressure in the back and seat, so therapists know exactly how well the pressure is distributed in their patients. It can be used to validate cushion selections, identify unseen asymmetries, aid in custom seating development, and provide patients with clear visual feedback. The system is designed to provide data on peak pressures and contact areas in real time to help therapists visualize the effect of adjustments.

CONFORMat, which can be used with adults or children, is engineered to conform to the contours of the human body and to virtually eliminate hammocking, giving therapists accurate, objective data on pressure distribution in the seat and back. Cost for the system ranges from $6,175 to $16,995, depending on the number of sensors, hardware and software required. Customization choices include tethered or Wireless hardware, Clinical or enhanced Research software, and the addition of Video Synchronization software.
