Product: Airpulse PK
Airpulse PK is an alternating pressure wheelchair cushion system. The alternate air cells of the cushion automatically inflate/deflate to the desired firmness on an adjustable timed cycle. This action relieves pressure and stimulates circulation to help heal and prevent pressure sores. Airpulse PK accommodates any mobility-impaired individual who has or is at high risk of developing pressure sores. Every cushion system Aquila makes is customized to address each individual’s unique physical characteristics and needs. (Any cushion size can be made.) Air cells of the cushion can be isolated such that they apply near zero upward pressure under an existing pressure sore, allowing the client to sit even while the pressure sore heals. Once the sore has healed, the air cell can be easily integrated back into normal operation with the click of a fitting. The model number of the Airpulse PK is APK. Prices vary; call for estimate. A 1-year warranty is included, and a warranty extension is available.

The Meridian provides pressure distribution, positioning stability, and comfort. It is constructed with Varilite’s Air-Foam Floatation, which uses air for pressure distribution and support, and multistiffness foam for stable pelvic positioning. Two independently adjustable Air-Foam Floatation chambers create maximum pressure distribution, and enable independent positioning of the pelvis and thighs. The Meridian’s dual chambers work together to correct sacral sitting by creating a preischial ridge, which prevents the ischial tuberosities—or ITs—from sliding forward into a posterior pelvic tilt. (It is self-inflating, so no pump is ever needed.) A removable, washable cover is available in mesh or incontinence material. The Meridian can be combined with a contoured Wave™ base for added positioning stability.
The Meridian is available in pediatric, adult, and bariatric sizes. Prices are $360 for model #720002 (< 22 inch width, HCPCS code K0736) and $440 for model #723002 (22 and 24 inch widths, HCPCS code K0737). The cushion has a 2-year warranty (excluding cushion covers).
