Product: Vicair Vector X cushion

Air and foam technology is behind the Vicair Vector X cushion, designed with 10 adjustable chambers, making it an especially comprehensive positioning cushion. Designed for optimal pressure distribution to aid in wound prevention and healing, air cells may be added or removed from each chamber as needed to customize the cushion’s geometry to best fit the needs of each user. The liner is made from a breathable mesh material to allow the full liner with air cells to be washed and dried. Hot or cold settings may be used. Coccyx, I.T., and sacrum bony prominences each has a dedicated chamber built to be partially or fully offloaded and optimize the healing opportunity for any stage wound. Split and elevated side chambers run from front to back to provide independently adjustable chambers for accommodating lateral pelvic asymmetries as well as adduction through the thighs. Adjustable height pommel chamber allows for the varied abduction needs for each user. The coccygeal bottom insert serves as a pelvic stabilizer and can quickly be adjusted to offload the high risk, coccygeal, and I.T. region through better loading of the greater trochanters.

Product: Stabil-Air Cushion (Air cell with internal contoured foam)

The Stabil-Air was created to be the ideal blend of a multicelled air cushion with contoured foam internal to each of the air cells. The internal foam aims to provide two central benefits. First, the internal foam is contoured, so that there is taller foam around the outside, with shorter foam for the leg troughs, the buttocks, and the coccyx. This contoured layer of foam is designed to provide a shell of stability and help ease transfers on and off of the cushion. The second central benefit is that the foam provides a backup or secondary layer of skin protection, which aims to prevent the cushion from ever fully bottoming out. These benefits were provided with the aim of giving a user or care provider “peace of mind” that comes from knowing if the multicelled air cushion ever loses air, the user is safeguarded by a backup layer of skin protection. Pediatric, adult, bariatric, and custom sizes are all available. This air cell cushion with foam internal to the air cells is engineered to provide a backup layer of protection. It is a second-generation hybrid cushion, and instead of half foam/half air, the entire cushion provides the immersion benefits of air, with the stability benefits of the internal contoured foam. The product is also offered in 5-inch-high cells. HCPCS codes are E2622, E2623, E2624, E2625, and E2609. MSRP is $480 for the Stabil-Air cushion 2-inch, 3-inch, and 4-inch, and $500 for Stabil-Air 5-inch-high cushion. The Stabil-Air Cushion is offered with a 2-year warranty, hand pump, cover (incontinent option available), and repair kit. Star Cushion describes its wheelchair cushions as products that promote independence and support the lifestyle to which today’s mobility device users are accustomed. Each cushion is made at the company’s Freeburg, Ill, facility.
