VICAIR™ ACTIVE O2
FOR THE ACTIVE WHEELCHAIR USER
COMFORT + STABILITY + ERGONOMIC SHAPE
The Vicair Active O2 offers the unique combination of ergonomically shaped foam and Vicair SmartCells. The four rear SmartCell compartments provide a high level of comfort and skin protection and offload the seat bones and tailbone area. The foam front compartment makes transfers easy. It also gives a great sense of stability and better wheelchair handling. The foam inlay is protected by an easy-to-clean waterproof cover. The rest of the cushion is 100% machine washable and breathable for optimal hygiene and perfect temperature & moist regulation.
The Active O2 has an easy accessible storage pouch for personal items (keys, phone, wallet). In short: everything you need to maintain your active lifestyle!
A cushion cover influences the performance of a wheelchair cushion. The Vicair covers are made with high-quality materials that enhance the performance of the Vicair cushion, ensuring that you will experience maximum protection and comfort.
Vicair’s reversible cover protects the inner cushion, preventing moisture from running through the cover onto the cushion. The cover is reversible; one side is a cool breathable fabric, and the other a wipeable fluid-proof fabric. Both sides protect the inner cushion and is ideal for institutional and home use where incontinence and hygiene is an issue.
Air Exchange Cover
Specifically designed for the Vicair O2 series, this cover has a breathable outer layer and covers only the top part of the cushion. This leaves the bottom part open, allowing the cushion to breathe. This offers optimal ventilation and comfort.
It’s not only the unique technology of the Vicair cushions that provides an optimal seating position; a proper set up of the wheelchair is essential.
You must keep in mind the adjustment of the footplate, correct seating angle, right backrest height, and also the seat to floor height.
To get the correct size of a wheelchair cushion, Vicair recommends to measure as follows:
- The width (X) of the cushion and the wheelchair seat should match.
- When the cushion rests against armrests or side-guards, the width of a Vicair seat cushion may be up to 2.5 cm (1”) wider.*
- The depth (Y) of the cushion and seat should match. * Exception: The width of the Vicair Active should match the width of the wheelchair seat.
If you find that our existing standard product line does not offer the solution you need, there is always the option to request a custom made wheelchair cushion. Vicair’s Technology – SmartCells – allow for great flexibility in design and are up for almost any challenge.

Vicair’s unique technology is based on ‘SmartCells’ that are filled with air. The numerous SmartCells in Vicair cushions form layers within the compartments. The SmartCells are able to move with so little friction that they resemble a viscous fluid, enabling the cushion to adjust to the shape of your body. Additionally, SmartCells are able to deform individually to conform to your body’s contours. All these factors together result in superior pressure redistribution.
Vicair stands behind the quality of their SmartCells by offering a Lifetime Warranty on their new generation of SmartCells. The SmartCells are recognizable by their grey colour and black Vicair Logo
