Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion
For patients who spend long stretches of time sitting down, the use of a pressure relief cushion may be necessary to reduce the risk of pressure sore development. The Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion is a pressure sore cushion constructed from viscoelastic memory foam, designed to provide comfort while promoting good positioning and posture. With excellent pressure distribution and user safety properties, this cushion is suitable for patients at a high to very high risk of developing pressure sores.
Please note: The Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion is no longer available. Please instead see the listing for the new Systam Viscoflex PLUS Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion.
This cushion's anatomically shaped design improves positioning, stability and comfort and also increases the contact area of the cushion with the user's body. This increased contact area improves the distribution of pressure and reduces the risk of pressure sores developing. The memory foam also facilitates blood circulation, further reducing the risk of pressure sores.
Hygienic, Breathable Cover
The cover supplied with your cushion is made with a two-way stretch, vapour permeable and waterproof material. The breathability allows air to pass through the foam, maintaining its shape and retaining bounce-back. Air is able to pass between the cushion and user, preventing overheating and any resulting maceration or skin damage. Additionally, the waterproof properties of the cover prevent any damage from fluids or spills.
Comfortable, Moulded Surface
The cushion's surface contains vents to improve air circulation and further reduce maceration by accommodating the body's movement to reduce surface friction. The high density memory foam prevents deformation of the cushion and stops any sagging effect. What's more, the cushion has an outer skin that is created during the moulding process, protecting the memory foam against tearing and crumbling damage.
Lightweight and Portable
This pressure sore cushion is incredibly lightweight, making it ideal for travel or transportation where it is required. The useful integrated handle on the cushion cover makes travelling with the cushion easy. As an added bonus, this handle also facilitates any repositioning of the cushion that may be necessary.
