Matrx Flo-tech Solution Foam and Gel Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion

Foam pressure relief cushions provide excellent comfort and weight distribution on their own, and when foam is combined with gel, pressure relief can be enhanced even further. The Matrx Flo-tech Solution Foam and Gel Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion uses a combination of slim, shaped foam and dual gel sacs to provide high levels of pressure relief and weight distribution.

Who Is the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion For?

The Matrx Flo-tech Cushion features a slim shaped foam cushion base with a dual layer of gel sacs over the ischial and sacral area. The dual gel sacs and the unique moulded foam shape of the cushion increase the support surface area. This delivers a superior level of protection, and makes the cushion ideal for the following individuals:

  • Those identified as being at very high risk of developing pressure ulcers
  • Those with already established tissue damage

How Does the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Work?

The Flo-tech Solution Cushion uses a combination of a slim, contoured foam base with a dual layer of gel sacs over the entire cushion surface. The dual gel sacs and the unique moulded foam shape significantly increase the support surface area, which delivers a superior level of protection for those considered to be at very high risk of developing pressure ulcers.

Components of the Matrx Flo-Tech Cushion

Is the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Suitable for Very High Risk Patients?

Yes, the Matrx Flo-tech Solution Cushion is suitable even for individuals at very high risk of developing pressure ulcers. The unique dual layer silicone fluid sack is segmented to allow the gel to redistribute dynamically around the person as they move, while preventing all the fluid from moving from underneath the individual's left or right ischials.

Will the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Help Sores to Heal?

This Flo-tech pressure relief cushion is suitable for individuals with already established tissue damage. Normal chairs may reduce the blood flow that the affected area receives, while the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion improves the blood flow to the affected area, giving the skin the time to breathe. This not only prevents new sores from developing, but also speeds up the rate of recovery.

Will the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Prevent Sores from Developing?

The Matrx Flo-tech Cushion features a soft foam cushion, covered with an additional layer of gel sacs that further enhance the pressure reducing qualities of the cushion. This makes the Matrx Flo-tech Solution Foam and Gel Pressure Relief Wheelchair Cushion suitable for preventing sores from developing even in very high risk patients.

The Flo-tech Pressure Relief Cushion is available in a choice of nine depths and seven widths, which makes the cushion suitable for most standard chairs and wheelchairs. You can select the right dimensions for your needs from the drop-down menus at the top of the page.

Can I Use the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Out of the House?

The slimline design of this cushion makes it ideal for use with both chairs and wheelchairs. It also makes side transfers simple and efficient, improving safety and reducing injury risk for both patients and carers.

Does the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion Come with a Cover?

Yes, the Matrx Flo-tech Cushion is supplied with a choice of four cushions, which are ingress-resistant to improve both hygiene and longevity. Treated with a fluorocarbon-based fluid repellent finish to prevent wetting and reduce risk of contamination, these covers prevent fluid ingress and aid in the prevention of pressure ulcers.

Nice comfortable cushion. The gel coating and contours make it a less painful seating option (for me personally) as I feel my hips align better now.
