Polyair Pressure Relief Cushions


Polyair® Cushions are medical cushions used to prevent pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores). They use air-cell technology which is widely recognised as the best way of preventing pressure ulcers in seated patients.

This cushion can be used for patients with any level of risk and for people who already have pressure ulcers. The Polyair cushion is suitable for use on wheelchairs, riser recliner chairs, car seats and other types of seating.

Polyair has a number of key advantage over other static air cell cushions – the cover is manufactured from Laxprene® material which is very flexible and elastic with a high tear strength which increases the cushions durability when compared with other similar products manufactured from Neoprene. The cover is manufactured using dipping technology which makes it extremely thin but with a constant thickness throughout.

The second key feature is that the cushion has a gauge to assist in setting up the cushion, this makes it possible for the cushion to be set up by a person without experience in setting up air cell cushions.

The final key feature of the Polyair cushion is that it uses a honeycomb design, unlike other aircell products, which leads to better stability, while the user is seated.

Like all aircell cushions, this cushion has excellent levels of immersion and envelopment, which are the key features in reducing interface pressure and therefore avoiding pressure ulcers

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.

As part of our winter sale we’re offering a free cushion cover worth £66 with every two Polyair cushions bought.

Polyair Literature V5 – PDF

Polyair-user-guide-v2 – PDF


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.
