Permobil announces updates to its ROHO Hybrid Elite SR combination foam and air wheelchair cushion.

New features include a sealed, contoured foam overlay as well as compatibility with the Smart Check handheld device that helps users find their proper inflation level and monitor it once it is reached.

Incorporating the new features results in a cushion that helps improve lower extremity alignment, make transfers easier, and provide the constant immersion and envelopment needed for effective skin and soft tissue protection, according to Sweden-based Permobil in a media release.

“Since we launched Hybrid Elite in 2009, thousands of individuals worldwide have chosen this cushion for its skin protection properties and stability. Now, the next generation of this revolutionary seating solution, ROHO Hybrid Elite SR, improves upon the original design and adds a Sensor Ready port for our Smart Check device, to bring even more value to ROHO customers seeking the optimal solution for their seating challenges,” says Tom Borcherding, president of Permobil Business Unit Seating and Positioning, in the release.
