Wheelchair Seating

Vicair Academy wheelchair cushions
An individual and carefree solution

Vicair ® Academy wheelchair cushions are worldwide known for their unique combination of high-quality pressure distribution and optimal positioning. They offer a solution in every situation. Academy wheelchair cushions are used with persistent relapsing pressure ulcers, when creating comfort is the goal, for mobility improvement, for symmetric and asymmetric shaped bodies or when simply a reliable low-maintenance cushion is needed.



The Vicair Adjuster


An individual solution for every sort of asymmetry, even the extreme kinds. Stability and positioning are the key-words. Use the Adjuster for instance with foot propulsion. The filling of one of the front compartments can easily be adjusted.
The cushion offers the necessary body support while improving the posture.
The Academy Adjuster is a wheelchair cushion that can be used in cases such as hemiplegia (CVA), amputations and Spina Bifida.

  • Pressure ulcer prevention
  • High performance addition to a decubitus treatment plan

The Vicair Positioner


To guarantee a comfortable position, you sometimes need lateral stability. The Academy Positioner provides extra pelvic stability, because of its lateral trochanter (thigh) support. This has a very positive effect on the body’s posture. It enhances the functionality of the upper body and increases a person’s reach. The Positioner can be used in cases such as ALS, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), paraplegia and spasms.

The Vicair Vector


Sometimes it is necessary to offload pressure where the risks are highest. The Academy Vector is based on the design of the Positioner, but it offers even more stability and optimal pressure distribution. The seat surface seems molded to the body’s contours. Offering support where needed, resulting in improved functionality of the upper body and expanding the reach. And offloading the vulnerable area around the ischials (seat bones) and coccyx (tailbone). The Academy Vector is highly fit for use with (e.g.) ALS, paraplegia, spasms and MS (Multiple Sclerosis).
