Skin Protection and Position Fluid (Axiom SP FLUID)
Hydrolite Fluid Bladder
The Axiom SP Fluid wheelchair cushion by Ki Mobility uses a Hydrolite fluid bladder instead of Viscoelastic Foam. The bladder rests directly under the super stretch outer cover, allowing it to conform to the tissues supporting the Ischial Tuberosities.
Hydrolite is a non-Newtonian fluid that behaves as a solid under the force of gravity but flows as a viscous fluid under load, which can help minimise shear. It is also incredibly light, eliminating the “weight penalty” of other fluid cushions. It is less temperature sensitive than other fluids, providing more consistent performance regardless of climate.
Axiom SP Fluid wheelchair cushion by Ki Mobility is designed to provide increased envelopment, allowing the trochanters to bear an effective load. This improves stability by widening the base of support and reduces the load the tissue that supports the Ischial Tuberosities must bear.
High-Quality Foam Materials
Axiom SP Fluid wheelchair cushion by Ki Mobility is constructed with foam with high IFD and density. The dual-density polyurethane foam base offers firm support in the lower layer with a durable comfort layer on top. High-quality materials lead to a long-lasting, comfortable, and high-performing product.
Surface Tension Reduction
The Hydrolite fluid bladder sits on top of the waterproof inner cover, reducing surface tension and maximising the ischia and coccyx envelopment. The bladder rests directly under the super stretch outer cover, allowing it to conform to the tissues supporting the Ischial Tuberosities. The super 4-way stretch Lycra outer cover material reduces surface tension, providing better immersion into the well.
All cushions need to have a properly designed pre-contoured shape. That’s why we cooperated with Georgia Tech to study anthropometrics. Axiom SP Fluid wheelchair cushion by Ki Mobility has a properly designed pre-contoured shape. Axiom SP Fluid is designed to provide increased immersion, allowing the trochanters to bear an effective load, widening the base of support, and reducing the load, the Ischial Tuberosities must bear.
Feature Rich Covers
Axiom SP Fluid wheelchair cushion by Ki Mobility has an innovative cover that is aesthetically pleasing with functional benefits for both the client and caregiver. The super 4-way stretch Lycra outer cover reduces surface tension, while the pleated 4-way stretch inner cover with a self-sealing zipper is water resistant and easy to clean. The water-resistant zipper and loop zipper pull make it simple to don and doff the cover while protecting the foam. There is an easy-to-reach front handle with utility loops for hanging accessories.
Axiom cushions are pre-contoured to facilitate loading the trochanters, decrease ischial loading and improve lateral stability.
We cooperated with Georgia Tech to study actual pelvic dimensions and other human measurements. This was critical to designing the cushion’s contours to fit the broad range of users properly.
Surface Tension Reduction
The ischial bladders rest directly under the outer layer of the cover. The super 4-way stretch Lycra outer cover material significantly reduces surface tension, providing better immersion.
