The ROHO Group Adds New Wheelchair Cushion to Product Line
- PostureLITE™ Cushion by ROHO®
BELLEVILLE, Ill., (September 1, 2011) - The ROHO Group, manufacturer of support surface products for medical and consumer applications, introduces a new wheelchair cushion, the PostureLITE™ Cushion by ROHO®, to its product line.
PostureLITE is a self-adjusting air and foam wheelchair cushion that gently contours to the individual to redistribute force. The new cushion is designed for individuals who may require basic skin protection and weigh less than 350 pounds. PostureLITE’s preset air and foam design offers a perimeter air expansion chamber that easily adapts to an individual’s body shape to provide comfortable suspension and skin protection. Its closed system design, using a combination of air and foam, provides fail-safe support that does not need adjustment.
“PostureLITE will complement The ROHO Group’s already extensive selection of seating support surfaces and offer individuals outstanding comfort, skin protection and best of all, simplicity,” said Lisa Blackmore, the Director of Marketing Communications for The ROHO Group.
PostureLITE comes in three sizes and fits wheelchair widths of 15 - 20 inches. Weighing only approximately 1.5 pounds (0.6 kilograms), the cushion is lightweight, cost-effective and easy to use and transport. The cover is made of breathable fluid- and flame-resistant polyurethane-coated polyester with DEHP and BPA-free PVC non-skid bottom material. The foam core is made of polyurethane foam encased in DEHP and BPA-free PVC. PostureLITE is US Medicare E2601 code verified as a general use wheelchair cushion.
Specializing in shape fitting technology®, The ROHO Group manufactures and distributes a variety of standard and custom-size wheelchair cushions and accessories, back systems, powered and non-powered support surfaces and the full line of XSENSOR® Pressure Mapping Systems.
