Product Information

Manufacturer's Product Description

WheelAir: the airflow technology solution for controlling temperature and reducing moisture Through active and controlled airflow WheelAir positively influences microclimate; reducing skin temperature and by providing the tools for heat and moisture exchange at the support surface that are otherwise occluded from such processes. This innovation is the first temperature control system designed specifically for wheelchair seating systems to help address these problems. The system allows user controlled air ventilation to the wheelchair back and seat. By processes of conduction, evaporation and convection WheelAir helps regulate not only body temperature and thermal comfort but assists in maintaining skin integrity by reducing the risk of heat and moisture associated skin damage too by keeping skin cool and dry. The WheelAir system integrates seamlessly into all wheelchair seating systems including sling backs, rigid backs, powerchairs, and custom moulded seating. The WheelAir backrest combines carefully selected fabric and foams to enhance your back support and comfort. Available in 6 widths to fit all manual or power chairs with a tension adjustable strap system. Features include: wireless remote, up to 27 hours battery life, 6 cooling settings, low noise, machine washable, and bespoke sizes available.
