Signature-Fit custom cushions are tailored to fit each customer’s needs, featuring firm and soft foam for a soft feel with more support, maximum pressure relief, increased sitting tolerance, postural support, and comfort. The carving process allows for shipment of unfinished cushions for a trial fit, so shaping adjustments can be made prior to the final shipment. Cushions can be fabricated to enhance the mold shape and/or facilitate attachment to wheelchairs, and feature an array of options such as pressure relief soft spots, rail-cuts, footrest removal notches, and rear seat notches. Due to the custom process, no returns are allowed.

Star produces multicelled, air-adjustable, and custom cushions. The company provides expeditious customer service before and after the sale through its home office, dealer network, and dedicated sales reps in the field. Cushion covers can be machined washed on a delicate cycle and placed in a low-heat dryer, or immersed in lukewarm water using mild soap with a washcloth or soft-bristled brush. All cushions are repairable at a minimal cost. Air cells can be replaced without compromising the structural integrity or functional aspects of the products (loaners are available for clients during repair). The entire line of cushions are air adjustable and conform to the client’s individual profile. By adding additional valving for multiple zones, cushions can adjust for obliquities and other minor seating challenges. To better address posture and seating changes, add aggressive positioning and stability, and improve patient transfers, the patented StarLock cushion adapts to more difficult seating challenges—enabling locking of each individual air cell and immediately creating a custom seating environment in 10 to 15 seconds.

Product: Evolution PSV™
The Evolution PSV is the cushion of choice for wheelchair users with a high risk of tissue breakdown and symmetric positioning needs. Superior pressure distribution, positioning stability, comfort, and simplicity have made the cushion widely popular, and now there is no guesswork in cushion adjustment with the innovative PSV (Pressure Setting Valve) added to the Evolution. The PSV works by sensing the amount of internal cushion pressure. As air is released, internal pressure decreases, and the user is immersed in the cushion for effective pressure distribution. When the PSV senses that enough air has been released, it automatically shuts off the flow. The client closes the PSV. Adjustment is simple and consistent. A therapist can select the Evolution PSV with confidence, knowing that a client or caregiver can adjust the Evolution PSV easily for optimal pressure distribution. It is available in pediatric, adult, and bariatric sizes. VARILITE air-foam floatation construction uses air for pressure distribution and support, and multistiffness foam for stable pelvic positioning. It is self-inflating; no pump is ever needed. A 2-year warranty is offered, excluding the cushion cover. Model numbers vary. The Evolution PSV (width less than 22 inches, HCPCS code K0734) MSRP is $364, and the Evolution PSV (width 22 inches or greater, HCPCS code K0735) MSRP is $442.

Product: FSA Pressure Mapping Systems
Vista’s rehabilitation seating technology comprises FSA seat and back pressure mapping systems, which help prevent pressure ulcers and improve patient function and comfort. FSA systems are soft interface pressure mapping systems, in which a thin, durable, flexible sensor is placed under the person’s body as close to the skin as is practicable. In conjunction with the electronics and software, the FSA provides real-time information about the pressures affecting the patient’s skin, which, along with proposed solutions, can be documented as snapshots or recordings with benefits demonstrated. FSA systems can be used as a biofeedback tool to educate patients/caregivers, and to help increase range of motion and pressure-relief capabilities. Additional tools include temperature, humidity, wheelchair center of gravity, bed, foot, and shear sensors. FSA systems are supported by skilled company-direct representatives and affiliates in the field, and Vista provides live, interactive Web-based training, toll-free technical support, free software upgrades, and other resources on the Web site. Delivery is usually within 1 week, but varies, depending on the product. FSA electronics can be easily and inexpensively repaired. Sensing mats are robust and flexible; their lifespan depends on care and maintenance and how often they are used for assessments—however, 3 to 4 years is common. Loaner systems or sensing mats are provided on request to help customers maintain scheduled appointments. FSA assessment systems can range from under $7,000 to under $10,000 MSRP. Larger seat mats are available, but most users choose the typical seat size of 21 by 21 inches. Smaller sensors are available for pediatrics, headrests, and armrests, and bed-sized sensors and several foot sizes are available, as are temperature-sensing mats, humidity sensors, shear sensors, and custom-designed sensors of various sizes and pressure ranges.
As with other clinic tools, there is no direct payment for FSA systems themselves, but clinicians may be able to recover their clinic time while FSA is being used with patients. Rehabilitation-technology suppliers typically include FSA among their services, and many have developed contracts with facilities, recovering some of the cost of the FSA directly.
Vista offers a 3-year warranty on electronics and a 2-year prorated warranty for sensing mats.
