Seating overview
Seating in general
Working against gravity over time
on a seating surface
in a certain posture (stability).
Goals of sitting

Our problem
Man is not built to Sit
Ape

Attributes of the ideal

Even pressure
distribution
Lightweight
Two major disadvantages

It leaks
It’s unstable
AIR
We solved these disadvantages by creating...
SmartCells
Slow adjustment
Adapt to body contours due to free movement of cells
Encapsulation of air by many,
flexible SmartCells

Adaptation to minor movement
Equal pressure distribution:
No tissue deformation
!

Fast adjustment:Individual SmartCells™ formation and adjustment
A dynamic, molded
seating system
A dynamic but

pressure
sore
callus
How do we solve this problem?
We’re NOT built to sit
Sitting assymetrically: stability
functional

Vicair is a dynamic system due to SmartCells.
This results in more immersion and equal pressure distribution.
Every Vicair cushion has a stop compartment to reduces total shear.

What do you need? Wheelchair size
To create Boxing Effect wheelchair width + 2cm. Only for wheelchair with side guards
Strap Back
Easy to install

Double zipper so it can be used with a stabilisation bar and with lateral support

Can be used in combination with the Liberty and Anatomic back

Sizes and Covers

Price, Warranty
and Service
Local Shear
-> (uneven pressure distribution)
Immersion
-> Bigger seating surface
Equal pressure distribution
Less tissue deformation

Total Shear
(sitting on a seating system with a back)
Stop in cushion
-> Prevents from sliding
Converts shear in to normal force
(perpendicular force on the skin)

Pelvic stabilizer

Improved leg stability

Diminished sliding

Decreased pressure under
sit bones
