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
Specially 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.
