Low Risk, Active User
AirLITE…comfort, durability and positioning in one simple package…the solution that others can’t match.
The AirLITE Cushion improves the ability to transfer by lowering the front and middle of the cushion 3/4 inch (2 cm), while keeping its strong positioning capability by deepening the leg troughs. The lower height also contributes to a greater feeling of security in the chair.
The non-adjustable pre-set air support pad, uses patented ROHO AIR FLOATATION Technology, while a contoured high density foam base positions the body in a comfortable position, creating one of the most effective and easy-to-use cushions on the market today. And at only 2 pounds, it continues the tradition of lightweight products from The ROHO Group.
