Contour Cushion with Shear Reduction Technology

The ACe Contour wheelchair cushion with Shear Reduction Technology by 5 Minds Mobility is a medium firm cushion for the user requiring a lower seat to floor height and more feedback combined with optimal positioning. Incorporating our Patent Pending Shear Reduction Technology (SRT), it is
an innovative way for two component parts of the cushion to move on each other in order to absorb shear, at the same time addressing the need for proper immersion. This new approach to shear reduction incorporates two layers of foam separated by a low friction material.

Addressing Shear From The Inside Out

Product Features:

  • 3 ¼” height at the leg channel
  • Aggressive medial and lateral leg channeling
  • Visco elastic section at the coccyx for proper off-loading
  • Internal incontinent cover sewn closed to protect the integrity of the foam
  • Covered with Meshtex in our signature red with a base of Grip X-S premium anti-slip fabric
  • Two-year warranty

Contour Cushion with Shear Reduction Technology

The ACe Contour VF Modular cushion with Shear Reduction Technology by 5 Minds Mobility is a combination of polyurethane and visco-elastic (memory foam) that provides optimal support and pressure redistribution. The visco section is removable and can be replaced with a ROHO® insert to optimize immersion and envelopment. Incorporating our Patent Pending Shear Reduction Technology (SRT), it is an innovative way for two component parts of the cushion to move on each other in order to absorb shear, at the same time addressing the need for proper immersion.

The Contour cushion greatly reduces sacral sitting (sliding) with its internal wedge structure. This new approach to shear reduction incorporates two layers of foam separated by a low friction material. The cushion itself is designed to absorb forces that damage skin, thereby reducing the risk for skin breakdown. A third party clinical trial was completed by Durham College Department of Nursing and Department of Engineering to validate SRT. The trial provided non-biased support for the efficacy of SRT and it’s use in populations where shear forces can damage vulnerable skin. 5 Minds Mobility received the Colleges of Ontario Network for Industry Innovations Award for SRT.

Addressing Shear From The Inside Out

Product Features:

  • 3” height at the leg channel
  • Aggressive medial and lateral leg channeling
  • High density Visco-Foam insert under the I.Ts and coccyx for pressure redistribution.
  • Internal incontinent cover sewn closed to protect the integrity of the foam
  • Covered with Meshtex in our signature red with a base of Grip X-S premium anti-slip fabric
  • Two-year warranty

Comfort Cushion with Shear Reduction Technology

The ACe Comfort wheelchair cushion with Shear Reduction Technology by 5 Minds Mobility is a softer cushion for the user wanting optimal comfort and positioning. The GelFlex top provides an additional layer of protection combined with the cooling benefit of gel. Incorporating our Patent Pending Shear Reduction Technology (SRT), it is an innovative way for two component parts of the cushion to move on each other in order to absorb shear, at the same time addressing the need for proper immersion. This new approach to shear reduction incorporates multiple layers of foam separated by a low friction material.

Addressing Shear From The Inside Out

Product Features:

  • 4 ¼” height at the leg channel
  • GelFlex top layer with aggressive medial and
    lateral leg channeling
  • Visco elastic section at the coccyx for
    proper off-loading
  • Internal incontinent cover sewn closed to
    protect the integrity of the foam
  • Covered with Meshtex in our signature red
    with a base of Grip X-S premium anti-slip fabric
  • Two-year warranty

Comfort Cushion with Shear Reduction Technology

The ACe Complete cushion with Shear Reduction Technology by 5 Minds Mobility is a hybrid cushion for the user requiring maximum pressure redistribution, immersion and positioning. Incorporating our Patent Pending Shear Reduction Technology (SRT), it is an innovative way for two component parts of the cushion to move on each other in order to absorb shear, at the same time addressing the need for proper immersion. The Complete cushion greatly reduces sacral sitting (sliding) with its internal wedge structure. This new approach to shear reduction incorporates two layers of foam separated by a low friction material and a ROHO® insert at the sacrum.

The cushion itself is designed to absorb forces that damage skin, thereby reducing the risk for skin breakdown. A third party clinical trial was completed by Durham College Department of Nursing and Department of Engineering to validate SRT. The trial provided non-biased support for the efficacy of SRT and it’s use in populations where shear forces can damage vulnerable skin. 5 Minds Mobility received the Colleges of Ontario Network for Industry Innovations Award for SRT.
