Systam Viscoflex Plus Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion

The Systam Viscoflex Plus Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion is a pressure sore cushion constructed from viscoelastic memory foam. It's anatomically shaped to improve positioning, stability and comfort as well as increasing the contact area of the cushion to spread the contact pressure and reduce the risk of pressure sores developing. The memory foam also facilitates blood circulation, further reducing the risk of pressure sores.

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

This internal skeleton ensures the most sensitive areas of the base of the spine (sacrum) are suspended in the middle of the cushion rather than compressing the cushion 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/anti-collapsing 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 (above) which sits beneath the back of the legs prevents forward sliding and ensures stable consistent positioning.

Features and Benefits of the Systam Viscoflex Plus

The cushion includes a highly breathable cover that is impenetrable to liquids and reduces maceration (the softening and whitening of skin that is kept constantly wet) by easing skin perspiration.

The surface of this pressure sore cushion contains vents to improve air circulation and further reduce maceration. They also accommodate movement of the body to reduce surface friction.

The very high density memory foam prevents deformation of the cushion and stops any sagging effect.

The cushion is also incredibly lightweight, making it ideal for travel or transportation. The useful integrated handle on the cushion cover makes travelling with the cushion easy.

An anti-slip base and anatomical shape avoids any sliding of the cushion, encouraging stable and reliable support.

Indications For Use of the Systam Viscoflex Plus Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion

This cushion is an excellent high risk and very high risk pressure relief cushion. There are several situations that this pressure sore cushion is ideally suited to (with appropriate nursing care/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, Waterflow)
  • Patients with a history of pressure sores on contact with a seating area
  • Complete or incomplete paralysis of the trunk or lower limbs

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.
