Varilite Zoid Wheelchair Cushion
The Varilite Zoid PSV Wheelchair Cushion is a low profile tapered cushion without a medial separator to suit active wheelchair users at risk of tissue breakdown.
Features of the Zoid:
- Combining stability, simplicity, and lightweight design with skin protection, the Zoid PSV weighs less than 900g, and is only 2.9” (7.5 cm) high, making the ideal choice on the court, on the track, or on the trail.
- The cover protects the thighs for those with tight hamstrings or who tuck their legs under their chair, whilst the PSV (Pressure Setting Valve) makes set-up and adjustment even easier. Postural support is achieved with the use of extra-firm bevelled foam, providing lateral stability and seating balance, while a large ischial pan protects the pelvis in both anterior and posterior pelvic tilt positions.
- The cushion is available with a mesh or water-resistant cover with breathable two-way stretch material. The reticulated foam inside the cover promotes air exchange and improves pressure redistribution.
Benefits of the Zoid:
1. Air-Foam Flotation
Functional areas of the cushion are created by three types of foam; soft foam for the decubitus-sensitive area of the ITs; medium foam for main seat support area; and firm foam for the perimeter.
2. Positioning Supports
Extra-firm, bevelled foam increases lateral stability and sitting balance, while a large ischial pan protects the pelvis in both anterior and posterior pelvic tilt positions. There is no medial thigh separator, therefore lower extremities can come into mid-line for better fit in a tapered chair.
3. Valve for Adjusting Air Volume
Zoid PSV is supplied with Varilite’s revolutionary Pressure Setting Valve.
Stylish and functional. Available in mesh or water resistant. Zoid PSV covers meet ISO 7176-16 ignition resistance standards for upholstered wheelchair components.
