The new Invacare® Matrx® Solution Xtra Cushion has been developed along side clinicians to address the individual postural requirements of Wheelchair Users. Through using this modular system, theraputic interventions can be more effectively addressed with regards to postural maintenance of End Users, through enhancing function, maximising comfort and preserving skin integrity.
The modular components are manufactured from high - density CMHR foam, which be deployed to achieve active correction and posture management. The wedges feature witness marks and Hook and Loop fixings, enabling them to be cut to meet the needs of individual users. The application of wedges beneath the cushion combined with the deployment of modular components on the top surface deliver a highly versatile range of options for therapists seeking to achieve specific postural management interventions. Cushion features Hook and Loop pads to enable easy fitting of the modular parts
Hook and Loop pads have been added to both the top (the Ischial Well, Femoral Shelf and Pommel regions) and also the bottom of the cushion base to incorporate the Xtra additions. All the affixing component parts are manufactured from high-density CMHR foam, and have been fitted with Hook and Loop to ensure that the wedges remain in the prescribed position on the cushion, even during repeated use. Large dual gel sac covering the entire top surface of the cushion
The contact area between the user and the foam cushion is protected, as the gel re-distributes pressure away from bony prominences. The additional layer of gel is incorporated under the ischial and sacral area to further enhance the pressure reducing qualities of this cushion, making this cushion suitable for Very High Risk users.
The cover is manufactured in an ingress-resistant material, which inhibits fluids from wetting the cover fabric. In addition, an innovative design has been incorporated into the cover, allowing it to expand and thereby increasing a user's immersion into the cushion once Invacare Flo-tech Xtra components have been added. The cover features two zips, which have colour coded sliders: Blue to open the cover. Green to expand. The cover can be opened either from the top or the bottom to adjust the components as necessary.
The way the system works is that you start with a base cushion, the Flo-Tech Solution Xtra and you can add on items from the Flo-Tech Solution Modular Kit. The extensive list of add on items includes:
Pelvic obliquity pad
Pommel standard or deep
