The Pilot is a low-profile cushion that provides exceptional pressure relief for most users with a pressure ulcer history. 2.54 cm of Akton polymer provides immersion for bony prominences and protects clients with fragile skin integrity. This multi-use cushion is recommended for use on manual and power wheelchairs, truck or taxi seats, or for other uses requiring significantly reduced high-pressure areas, vibration, and shear. The low profile allows users to effectively reach the floor for more efficient foot-assisted propulsion. It also conforms to pre-contoured surfaces to maximize stability and positioning when required.
• 1” (25mm) thick
• Suitable for medium-high risk clients

• Durable, washable cover included
Tip: Purchase a second cover for incontinence users.
