For wheelchair users, the comfort and performance of the backrest is a key characteristic of the chair. After all, wheelchair users spend much of their day in this device, which puts them at risk of developing pressure ulcers and posture-related problems if the seating and back cushioning are not performing well.

But, even with wheelchairs that provide a well-functioning backrest as a standard option, users can benefit from an enhanced add-on cushion such as those from our Vicair range. These backrests offer superior performance in much-needed areas like the spinal cord area and bring protection against pressure-related complications. Here are some of the excellent features of the Vicair cushion family. 

The Vicair cushions offer adaptability to a wide range of user needs

Invacare’s family of Vicair cushions includes several types of back cushions and a back strap. Each of them is made of high-quality materials for superior comfort and support, also providing adaptability to a range of uses. For example, we offer universal solutions that can fit a variety of back systems. 

We also offer an option designed specifically for use with the Invacare Rea Azalea Flex 3 backrest system. This model features 13 adjustable compartments with a central compartment that brings offloading around the spinal cord. 

Among the wide range of models available, there’s also a solution that combines the Vicair SmartCell technology with the sturdy aluminium shell of the Matrx Elite Deep backrest. This model is ideal for users with a kyphotic curvature and those at risk for skin breakdown. 

Our Vicair back cushions implement multiple features to ensure excellent skin protection and anti-decubitus properties. First, thanks to innovative materials and design, this backrest provides optimal pressure redistribution. Second, the covers provide protection from shear, which is a contributing factor in the development of pressure ulcers. Third, the mesh covers provide microclimate control which cares for the comfort and hygiene of the user. 

The Vicair back cushions cater to the stability and positioning needs of wheelchair users in every way. Lateral and frontal stability properties, sliding prevention and the plentiful adjustment options, allow for a great fit and superior offloading. Our range of products provides solutions, for even more specific needs. 

Invacare’s family of Vicair products is easy to clean and maintain, which is excellent for user comfort, but also cares for the protection against skin breakdown.
