The Varilite Evolution is a cushion of choice for wheelchair users with a high risk of tissue breakdown and symmetric positioning needs. It is recommended for individuals with motor and neurological dysfunction due to spinal-cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, poliomyelitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or traumatic brain injury.
The 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 the thigh trough, pelvic bucketing and pre-ischial bar; and Firm Foam for the perimeter and the medial thigh separator. It conforms to the user, and the user’s weight is distributed over the surface of the cushion. The cushion is also designed with positioning supports that improves stability, which is important for users with compromised sitting balance or who transfer frequently.
The Varilite Evolution Cushion is also available in PSV which works by sensing the amount of internal cushion pressure. When
the PSV senses that enough air has been released, it automatically shuts off the flow; taking guesswork out of cushion adjustment and making it automatic. It is also available with a mesh or incontinence cover with breathable fourway-stretch material. Reticulated foam inside promotes air exchange and improves pressure distribution. The underside is a rugged nonslip material with hook and loop for added security. Evolution and Evolution PSV covers meets ISO 7176-16 ignition resistance standards for pholstered wheelchair components.
