ROHO® Hybrid Select cushion launched today in Australia and New Zealand.

Monday, January 31, 2022

‚ÄčPermobil is proud to offer in Australia and New Zealand the ROHO Hybrid Select cushion with both air and foam elements, that also has a removable IT insert to provide offloading capabilities to benefit wheelchair users.

"Thanks to the development team at ROHO who have created an exclusive offloading air cell and foam cushion which has never been done before," says Teresa Ellison, Director of Product Marketing for Permobil's Seating and Positioning segment in the Americas.

What's the big deal about offloading? For individuals in wheelchairs, this ability to offload the pressure under their ischial tuberosities (ITs) or sit bones to a larger surface area can help in preventing skin breakdown.

The Hybrid Select cushion truly is an all-in-one seating solution:

  • A positioning cushion that offers skin protection
  • Has optional offloading without adding accessories or wedges
  • Offers the stability and support of foam leg troughs
