The Invacare Flo-shape is your go-to cushion for pressure sores prevention. It is built with unique features to meet the needs of users. The new Flo-shape seat cushion features the popular Dartex upholstery – specially designed for the user who spends many hours in a wheelchair and requires a cushion with optimal weight distribution to prevent pressure sores. Flo-shape cushions contribute to improved quality life and maximum comfort. The top of the Flo-shape cushion is contoured for enhanced stable seat posture.
The Invacare Flo-shape cushion comes with a 103 mm high cushion suitable for those ‘At Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers. It is used predominantly on the Invacare Rea range of wheelchairs. The cushion allows for pressure redistribution and reduces peak pressure to the most vulnerable areas. More so, the surface of the Flo-shape cushion is contoured into sections through a mould construction, giving a three-dimensional form that cannot be emulated in cut foam. This allows for weight to be dispersed away from key pressure points.
The Flo-shape cushion has an anatomical shape that naturally supports the ischial tuberosity, reducing the tendency for the person to slide forwards in the seat, which can cause shear and friction. It provides a stable surface that aids central pelvic placement and improved thigh alignment, making it suitable for those with reduced sitting balance, such as a neurological condition. Below are some key features of the Invacare Flo-shape cushion:
- Contoured seating surface: This offers improved stability and postural support. It also delivers a higher degree of pressure distribution compared to a flat surface.
- Anatomical Shape: Its anatomical shape naturally supports the ischial tuberosity, reducing the tendency for the person to slide forwards in the seat, which can cause shear and friction.
- Comfortability: Comfortable, stable, and redistributes pressure.
- Cover: It features Two-way stretch, water-resistant, and vapour-permeable Dartex cover.
- Sizes: It is available in a range of sizes to fit different users.
Durability: It is designed with high standard materials to last longer.
