Ottobock Cushions

Ottobocks innovative categories of seat cushions—Floam and Terra—offer a high level of posture support as well as comfort, and can help prevent pressure points and pressure sores.

Ottobock recognizes the different requirements when it comes to reducing shear forces, microclimate regulation, postural stability, posture management, damping and pressure redistribution. These requirements determine whether the seat cushion should be filled with foam, air or gel.

Cloud

The Cloud Cushion offers excellent pressure redistribution over bony prominences, including trochanters for those at high risk of pressure ulcers. Individual Floam cells ensure a high level of stability, e.g. for transfers and easy adjustment for postural deformity, e.g. pelvic obliquity.

FEATURES
  • Modular construction of up to 30 Floam cells, dependent on size
  • A combination of Floam cells with low, medium and high fill enables individual configuration for individual postural needs
  • Additional / replacement Floam cells available individually
  • Available in sizes 300 x 300 mm (9 Floam cells) to 580 x 400 mm (30 Floam cells)
  • Foam base with waterproof cover included for additional protection
  • Weight: 3.2kg (400 x 400mm)
  • Max user weight: 250kg
  • Thickness: 110mm
  • Water resistant multistretch Dartex outer cover
BENEFITS
  • Users at risk of decubitus (elderly & neurological)
  • Users requiring shear protection
  • Excellent pressure redistribution over bony prominences, including trochanters for those at high risk of pressure ulcers
  • Individual Floam cells ensure a high level of stability, e.g. for transfers
  • Easy adjustment for postural deformity, e.g. pelvic obliquity

Terra-Flair

Constructed of Ottobock Rest Suspension foam (technology available only from Ottobock) the Terra Flair is elastically modified for excellent pressure redistribution, with improved impact damping compared to standard foams.

FEATURES
  • 70 mm single valve, 5 x 5 cell, ROHO adjustable air insert (300 x 240 mm)
  • Ottobock Rest Suspension foam technology:
     – Elastically modified for excellent pressure redistribution
     – Improved impact damping compared to standard foams
     – More consistent performance over time
  • Anatomically moulded profile
  • Water-resistant multistretch Dartex outer cover
  • 150 kg user weight limit
BENEFITS
  • Optimal pressure redistribution for those at high risk of pressure ulcers
  • Shear protection in the ischial area for additional skin protection
  • Excellent ride comfort due to the impact damping properties of Rest Suspension foam
  • High level of stability due to the properties of the Rest Suspension foam and anatomical form of the cushion
  • Good postural support provided by the Rest Suspension trochanter support

Terra

The super lightweight Terra cushion utilizes an innovative rest suspension foam developed by and exclusively available through Ottobock. Weighing less than two pounds, the Terra offers you long term durability and improved comfort.

FEATURES
  • 70 mm single valve, 5 x 5 cell, ROHO adjustable air insert (300 x 240 mm)
  • Ottobock Rest Suspension foam technology:
     – Elastically modified for excellent pressure redistribution
     – Improved impact damping compared to standard foams
     – More consistent performance over time
  • Anatomically moulded profile:  – Ischial loading area
  • Water-resistant multistretch Dartex outer cover
  • 150 kg user weight limit
BENEFITS
  • Effective pressure redistribution for those at moderate risk of pressure ulcers
  • Excellent ride comfort due to the impact damping properties of Rest Suspension foam
  • High level of stability due to the properties of the Rest Suspension foam and anatomical form of the cushion
  • Good postural support provided by the anatomical shape of the cushion
