The VARILITE Evolution is the cushion of choice for wheelchair users with a high risk of tissue breakdown and symmetric positioning needs.
Therapists recommend the Evolution for individuals with motor and neurological dysfunction due to spinal-cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and traumatic brain injury. Therapists value the Evolution’s outstanding pressure distribution and postural support.
Users and caregivers value its low weight, comfort, and ease of use. No pumps or accessories. No kneading or manipulation.
Superior pressure distribution, positioning stability, comfort and simplicity have made the Evolution our most popular wheelchair cushion. By adding VARILITE’s innovative PSV (Pressure Setting Valve) we’ve made the Evolution PSV even better, taking the guesswork out of cushion adjustment.
VARILITE Air-Foam Flotation makes the Evolution ultralight, without compromising pressure distribution and support.
Bonding Evolution foam to coated fabric makes the cushion hold air. A valve releases air to immerse the user in the foam, the foam conforms to the user, and the user’s weight is distributed over the surface of the cushion.
Independent research has shown VARILITE air-foam floatation to be the #1 impact and vibration dampening technology (RESNA 2000).
The PSV is marked with three pre-set positions, which provide the best range of immersion for most users. The therapist determines the PSV position that results in optimal pressure distribution for a client. (A therapist can mark a different position on the PSV if the user falls outside the pre-determined range.)
Sitting on a fully inflated Evolution PSV, the client simply opens the PSV to the appropriate position. When the PSV senses that enough air has been released, it automatically shuts off the flow. The client closes the PSV. Adjustment is simple and consistent.
Ease of use improves user compliance. A therapist can select the Evolution PSV with confidence, knowing that a client or caregiver can adjust the Evolution PSV easily for optimal pressure distribution. The first time. Every time.
