WheelAIR – a supportive cooling backrest cushion for wheelchair use.
It is no secret that wheelchair users are often uncomfortable due to their long-lasting seated position, non-fitting cushions or certain health conditions. By working together with wheelchair users, producers, and Paralympic athletes, WheelAir has been created – a cushion that improves your posture and keeps you cool.. and looks good doing it!
WheelAIR is a battery-powered airflow back-rest cushion carefully designed with the input of Paralympic athletes to be cooling and more supportive. Through a combination of function and effortlessly stylish (and silent) design, users have experienced a drop in both back and core temperature, heavily reducing effects of overheating.
Available in 4 widths to fit all active lightweight rigid and folding wheelchairs with a canvas backrest.
