APK2 Custom Cushion

The Airpulse PK2 is a patented, fully automatic alternating pressure relief cushion designed to help treat and prevent pressure injuries (pressure ulcers) by performing automatic pressure relief. The cushion interrupts constant pressure up to 60 times per hour with a gentle massaging action. Aquila Corp. can custom build the APK2 to offload an area of the cushion full time (for example, if needed for a pressure injury), while the cushion stimulates circulation throughout the rest of the posterior.
