POLYAIR® cushion valves are all non-leak (like the tyres on a car), meaning that if the pump is not attached, the valve will not leak the air from the cushion.

Description

POLYAIR cushions are made in France, by System Assistance Medical.

POLYAIR cushions are made from Laxprene® material, which has been specially developed to be:

  • Very flexible and elastic, with a very high tearing resistance.
  • Durable.
  • Adaptable to the user’s shape.
  • Ideal for pressure management, and maintenance.

Each cushion is manufactured through a dipping process, which gives the material a softness, ensuring a perfect response to inflation and pressure.

The honeycomb design, for the air-cell layout, increases the contact area with the user. This helps to distribute pressure over the cushion surface.

POLYAIR® cushion valves are all non-leak (like the tyres on a car), meaning that if the pump is not attached, the valve will not leak the air from the cushion.

This means that the air will not leak accidentally, from someone playing with the valve, or when pushing the valve through the eyelets in the cover after inflation.

Inflation

Improperly inflated cushions – either over- or under-inflated – can lead to pressure damage.

POLYAIR® cushions are provided with an easy to use hand pump with an inflation bulb. The POLYAIR® 100 and POLYAIR® 60 cushion pump also comes with a specially designed Pressure Gauge which clearly shows the cushion pressure setting when the user is sat on the cushion.

The pressure setting can be calculated using the table, on this webpage. Or, for a more detailed description of how to calculate the appropriate pressure setting for the user, see the handy set up guide (downloadable below).

POLYAIR® 100 & POLYAIR® 60

The POLYAIR® 100 and POLYAIR® 60 are named after their cell height (in millimetres).

  • POLYAIR® 100 = 100mm / 10cm / 4 inches high
  • POLYAIR® 60 = 60mm / 6cm / 2.4 inches high

Maximum user weight for POLYAIR® cushions is 31.5 stone (200kg).

3 Year warranty on all POLYAIR® cushions, and 2 years on covers.

Both cushions are available in either single or two compartments. (Limited sizes available for single compartment cushions)

The two compartment cushions are suitable to be used any way round (depending on access to the inflation valves), to provide a solution to either a left/right or a front/back configuration. The separate compartments can be inflated to the same level, or at different levels to manage situations such as pelvic imbalance.

For more stability see the POLYAIR® Comfort.

Inflation and Checking on 2 Compartment Cushions.

Inflating the 2 compartment cushions is the same as inflating the single compartment cushions, except that it has to be done twice. The hand pump supplied with the cushion inflates the cushion quickly, and easily.

With the use of the pressure gauge, attached to the pump, setting the inflation for users is simple:

  • Switch the pressure gauge on – the lights will flash.
  • Attach the pump hose to the cushion. Inflate the cushion until the MIN light is on steadily. (Repeat on second compartment, if the cushion has two compartments)
  • Seat the user on the cushion correctly.
  • Gently press the orange air-release button to allow the user to become immersed into the cushion. Keep checking the setting of the cushion, until appropriate setting has been reached.
