Systam Viscoflex Plus Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion

For many patients with low levels of mobility, the use of pressure relieving cushion is necessary to prevent the development of pressure ulcers. The Systam Viscoflex Plus Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion is a highly effective cushion constructed from viscoelastic memory foam. The excellent pressure relieving qualities of this cushion make it suitable for patients at a high to very high risk of pressure sore development.

Anatomical Design

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.

Ergonomic Foam Insert

In addition to all the features of the Systam Viscoflex Pressure Relief Cushion, is also has an internal skeleton of high bearing foam. This structures the cushion and optimises weight distribution.

This internal foam skeleton ensures the most sensitive areas of the base of the spine are suspended in the middle of the cushion rather than compressing it totally and bottoming out. A ridge in the cushion stops the patient's body from sliding forward, providing a stable and optimum position.

Viscoflex Plus Pressure Sore Cushion Ergonomics

You can see above that there is an anti-punching foam insert (A) that is specifically positioned in relation to the ischia (B). This distributes the pressure to the buttock peripheral zone, which stabilises and supports the pelvis and prevents it from reaching the bottoming zone.

Pressure Sore Cushion DEsign

The pre-ischial ridge which sits beneath the back of the legs, prevents forward sliding and ensures stable, consistent positioning.

Indications For Use

There are several situations that this pressure sore cushion is ideally suited to (with appropriate nursing care and guidance):

  • Where a pressure sore (Stage I to III according to EPUAP) is present
  • Where there is an increased or very high risk of developing a pressure sore according to an evaluation scale (Braden, Norton, Waterlow)
  • Patients with a history of pressure sores on contact with a seating area
  • Complete or incomplete paralysis of the trunk or lower limbs
  • Impaired or absent sensation of the lower body

This cushion has made all the difference to my 94 year old mother. She can now sit for longer periods in her wheelchair with more comfort. Very successful.

Like sitting on air, so comfy you don't feel a thing. Recommend to anyone who has to sit in a wheelchair for any length of time.
