Item Details

Invacare MSS Flo-Tech Lite Visco Cushion

ILC Reference NO 43:61:040
Item sourced from ILC VIC database


With Cover

Factors to Consider
It is important that the user reposition themselves, or be repositioned, on a regular basis. This relieves pressure and helps prevent tissue compression and potential pressure ulcer formation.
All cushions must be monitored to prevent 'bottoming out'. This occurs when the users weight bears down so hard on the product material that it is flattened and the bony parts are pressed against the surface below the cushion. Where bottoming out occurs even with correct use (eg correct choice and depth of foam), a different product may need to be considered.'
Do not attempt to move the cushion by its handle while the user is seated on it


Short Description
The Lite Visco Cushion is a low profile contoured cushion made from temperature sensitive, high density, low memory, visco-elastic foam and is ergonomically designed to provide postural support for the user. It is suitable for users with a low to medium risk of developing pressure ulcers and is available in three grades of firmness with varying load capacities. A range of cover options is available, all are launderable, waterproof, vapour permeable and two-way stretch with and anit-slip base and a handle. A sag compensator base is available and the cushion comes in a range of sizes.
