SofTech Cushion
SofTech is a custom-fabricated, alternating cushion system built to help treat existing pressure injuries and prevent new injuries. The SofTech automatically changes pressure distribution 60 times per hour. This auto- matic action provides pressure relief that
is essential for the prevention of pressure injuries. User-specific specifications enable offloading under existing pressure injuries to allow healing. An optional integrated fan cools and dries the skin to assist healing. All system components are integrated into the cushion base so there is no separate control box to mount. There are three firmness selections, based on the client’s weight.

Tactilus by Blue Chip is designed as the perfect solution to create the optimal therapeutic seating surface. Blue Chip’s seat sensor is a matrix-based tactile surface sensor. One thousand twenty-four sensing points cover the entire surface area of the sensor “skin,” allowing for discrete spot pressure analysis at any point in the contact region. This provides the accurate patient data required to create the optimal seating surface for maximum comfort, proper posi- tioning, and pressure redistribution.
