relief by air
Vicair technology is based on what we call ‘SmartCells.’ When people see our SmartCells, they often ask, “What’s inside the triangles?”. The answer to that is quite short and straightforward: “Air.” To be precise, however, the SmartCells aren’t ‘triangles’: the shape is officially called a tetrahedron – not quite a triangle and also not quite a pyramid, but a combination of both. So Vicair is all about packaging “air” in a unique way. In each of our cushions, you will find hundreds of these small packages of air – hundreds of SmartCells.
Vicair O2 Wheelchair Cushions are fully machine washable and offer excellent micro climate control to deal with hygiene related issues such as sweat and incontinence. Due to increased volume, the cushions have better immersive qualities resulting in improved support.
SMARTCELLS: STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
When using a Vicair wheelchair cushion, you do not sit on just one SmartCell, but hundreds of them. One SmartCell is just the basis, the biggest strength of the Vicair SmartCells is in their numbers. One key benefit of hundreds of SmartCells is that if one cell should happen to leak air, the wheelchair cushion still retains its function. This is why Vicair wheelchair cushions last for years. Not just a smart but also a safe idea.
In addition to safety, all the SmartCells together form layers within the compartments of our cushions. The SmartCells move with virtually little friction, resembling 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 facets 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 latest generation of SmartCells are recognizable by their grey colour and black Vicair Imprint.
YOUR ADVANTAGE: OPTIMAL PROTECTION AND MAXIMUM FREEDOM
The elements of our technology and product design combined to provide you with a wheelchair cushion of exceptionally high quality. The smooth SmartCells move almost frictionless against one another, the cells in the compartments deform individually and together to adjust perfectly to your body. The cushion compartments are designed in such a way that they provide superior stability. Each is filled with just the right amount of SmartCells, resulting in a stable Vicair cushion. Every compartment can also be adjusted to fit individual needs by removing or adding SmartCells.
The final result is a wheelchair cushion that provides optimal pressure redistribution and minimal shear forces. A Vicair wheelchair cushion provides you with maximal comfort, optimal support, and overall smaller risk of skin breakdown.
