The Hybrid Elite Cushion with Dual Valve

This compartment cushion combines skin/soft tissue protection and Shape Fitting Technology with stability from a contoured foam base.

I like this innovative cushion as it combines the skin and soft tissue protection and Shape Fitting Technology of a ROHO DRY FLOATATION cushion with stability from a contoured foam base. The shape-fitting air insert provides critical pressure redistribution around the pelvis area for those with an obliquity. And the two, independent compartments let you set inflation levels to your exact shape and ideal position. I use it on my powerchair for driving where I am much less active from than on my manual chair.

  • Positioning; An individual can achieve greater positioning ability with the Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment cushion. The contoured foam base provides the opportunity for both lower extremity and pelvic alignment and control.
  • Skin/Soft Tissue Protection; The Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment cushion hydrostatically loads the ischial tuberosities and the posterior shelf of the greater trochanters for those who are at risk of skin/soft tissue breakdown. Unparalleled in performance, the ROHO cushion insert allows for immersion and envelopment of the individual’s shape. It provides an adjustable, reduced friction and shear environment that can help protect the individual from acquiring pressure injuries from sitting. The dual valve option on the ROHO insert allows for additional customization to match an individual’s specific shape and asymmetry. Allows for up to approximately 2¾ in / 7 cm of immersion.
  • Stability; The Hybrid Elite Dual Compartment’s customized contoured foam base provides improved positioning of the pelvis and lower extremities, enhancing sitting posture. This added stability assists the individual in achieving a safer transfer in and out of their wheelchair.

Overall, I have found this to be a very good air cushion. As I am at high risk of pressure sores and skinbreakdown an air cushion is a must for me. I purchased mine from
