Skin Protection and Position Foam (Axiom SP VISCO)
The viscoelastic foam cushion material is viscous (changes shape slowly) and elastic (returns to its original shape). It deforms and returns to shape very slowly. There is a significant lag between when you deform viscoelastic foam and when it returns to shape. Because energy is effectively absorbed and dissipated during the time lag, there is less reaction force pushing back after deformation.
Axiom SP Visco foam cushion by Ki Mobility is designed to provide increased immersion, 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. A thick section of specially designed Viscoelastic foam deforms to immerse and envelop the Ischial Tuberosities.
High-Quality Foam Materials
Axiom SP Visco foam cushion by Ki Mobility is constructed with high IFD and density foam. The dual-density polyurethane foam base offers firm support in the lower layer with a durable comfort layer on top. While the viscoelastic foam insert with unique hexagonal shapes increases envelopment and reduces compression around the ischia and coccyx. High-quality foam materials lead to a long-lasting, comfortable, and high-performing product.
Surface Tension Reduction
The Axiom SP Visco foam cushion by Ki Mobility contains a viscoelastic foam insert with unique hexagonal shapes increase envelopment and reduce compression around the ischia and coccyx. The outer cover features a microclimatic spacer fabric layer with a horseshoe design around the well for layer reduction allowing the foam insert to rest directly beneath the pleated 4-way stretch Lycra cover to reduce surface tension.
It’s important for all cushions to have a properly designed pre-contoured shape. That’s why we cooperated with Georgia Tech to study anthropometrics. Axiom SP Visco foam cushion by Ki Mobility has a properly designed pre-contoured shape to provide increased immersion, allowing the trochanters to bear an effective load, widening the base of support, and reducing the Ischial load Tuberosities must bear. To facilitate immersion, the well has two small areas where foam is removed under the Ischial Tuberosities.
Feature Rich Cover
The Axiom SP Visco foam 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.
