NYOrtho APEX Waveform Anti-Thrust Wheelchair Cushion Cooling Gel-Foam High Density Non Slip Water Resistant Prevent Pressure Injuries


Patients at risk for pressure ulcers, requiring anterior buildup at mid-line to prevent forward ischial migrations.


The NYOrtho APEX™ Waveform Anti-Thrust Gel-Foam Cushion, designed to prevent forward ischial migration and to provide greater lateral stability, features an innovative design that chambers the gel-pod closer to the top of the cushion, providing a cooler interface between the patient and wheelchair. Internal dual gel chamber evenly maintains gel in the area of the highest pressure, preventing skin breakdown. A high-performance stretch cover improves moisture evaporation and enhances the APEX™ design features.


  • Anti-thrust design prevents forward ischial migration.
  • Waveform design provides raised front, controlling forward thrust to maintain pelvic neutrality and elevate sides for lateral stability.
  • Innovative APEX design cools and reduces body interface pressure.
  • Dual density foam layers provide a soft top entry layer, promoting direct interface with cooling gel-pod, and a higher density base layer for support and pressure distribution.
  • Chambered dual gel-pod reduces gel migration and dissipates metabolic heat, continuously maintaining a cool interface between the body and cushion.
  • High-performance pressure reducing fabric promotes healing via active evaporation of moisture and cooling at patient pressure points. Antimicrobialwater-resistant and mildew-resistant.
  • Aggressive non-slip bottom with easy to attach quick-release straps keep cushion in place.
  • Meets CA 117-2013 standards.
