The Science of Comfort: How Pressure Redistribution Air Cushions Work

Comfort is a universal desire, and when it comes to pressure redistribution air cushions, there's more to it than meets the eye. In this blog, we explore the intricate science behind these cushions, exploring how they work to provide not just a seat but a genuine sense of comfort and well-being.

Understanding Pressure Points

We all know that prolonged sitting can lead to discomfort and potential health issues.  With prolonged pressure blood flow can be restricted, assisting the development of pressure ulcers.

Specific areas of the body are more prone to pressure ulcers. For example your heels, buttocks and elbows. All of these bony areas take significant amounts of pressure daily.


Even Weight Distribution

Even weight distribution is the core of pressure redistribution air cushions adapting to body motion for optimum comfort.  Clinically designed to distribute body weight uniformly, reducing the concentration of pressure on specific areas.


Air Technology at Work

Powered by NHS backed Repose® technology with smart valve technology for the perfect inflation.


Adapting to Body Shape:

Carefully designed to adapt to individual body types ensuring that each users experiences a tailored level of support that minimizes pressure on vulnerable areas.


Reducing Friction and Shear

When your skin rubs against a surface, such as your clothes or bed sheets, this is friction. Causing damage to the outer of the skin, increasing your chances of getting pressure ulcers. As your skin's outer layer has been damaged and is more vulnerable to pressure and other causes.

A shear occurs when two surfaces move in opposite directions and create a force. These have the potential to cause pressure ulcers, by damaging the underlayers of your skin. Increasing the chances of your skin's being effected by a pressure ulcer.


Promoting Circulation

Air Cushions has significant benefit to improving blood circulation which in turn contributes to overall comfort, reducing the risk of numbness, tingling, and related discomfort.
