The Varilite Zoid PSV is the low-profile cushion of choice for active wheelchair users at moderate risk of tissue breakdown. Therapists recommend the Zoid PSV for individuals who need a low profile, tapered cushion without a medial thigh separator. Its tapered shape makes it ideal for rigid chairs, and its cover is designed to protect the thighs of users with tight hamstrings or who tuck their legs under their chair.
Air-Foam Floatation, coupled with multi-stiffness foam, delivers superior pressure distribution. Functional areas of the Zoid PSV are created by three types of foam: soft foam for the decubitus-sensitive area of the Its; medium foam for the thigh trough and pelvic bucketing; and firm foam for the perimeter. It is also designed for positioning support; its extra-firm, beveled foam increases lateral stability and sitting balance, while a large ischial pan protects the pelvis in both anterior and posterior pelvic tilt positions. There’s no medial thigh separator, so lower extremities can drift naturally into midline for a better fit in a tapered chair. Reticulated foam inside promotes air exchange and improves pressure distribution. The underside of the cover is a rugged nonslip material with hook and loop for added security.
The PSV takes the guesswork out of cushion adjustment. It releases the air to immerse the user in the foam, which conforms to the user and distributes the user’s weight over the surface of the cushion. When the PSV senses that enough air has been released, it automatically shuts off the flow of air for optimal pressure distribution. The PSV is also marked with three pre-set positions, which provide the best range of immersion for most users.
