Fully machine washable wheelchair cushion
From a hygienic point of view it is preferred that a wheelchair cushion can be washed. Especially after bowel or bladder accidents. It is unpleasant if you have to remove the filling before washing. The new Vicair O2 range cushion can be put in the washing machine in its entirety. The SmartCells in the cushion do not have to be removed before washing and the maximum washing temperature is 60°C. Therefore the cushion is perfect for use in nursing homes and/or for everyone that desires maximum hygiene of their wheelchair cushion.

100% breathable and ventilation
The Vector O2’s open cushion structure ensures 100% breathability and ventilation. Using a breathable cushion improves temperature and humidity control, increases comfort and reduces the effect of shear and friction on tissue deformation, thereby reducing the risk of developing pressure ulcers.
Boxing Effect for maximum stability and optimal comfort
The cushion has a zipper running all the way around the cushion’s mid-section, which allows it to better retain its volume, increasing support and reducing the risk of SmartCells slipping out from under the user. The Boxing Effect also allows the therapist to adjust the number of SmartCells (only if necessary) while the user remains seated on the cushion.
