A ROHO is a pressure relief cushion that is made of soft, flexible air cells connected by small channels. This allows air to flow from one cell to another at a controlled rate. The user's weight is distributed evenly across the surface of the cushion, providing proper support.
ROHO is a well-known brand of quality medical air cushions. A ROHO cushion is made of neoprene and has air cells of different sizes and heights along various areas of the cushion. The inflated air cells flex with the shape of your body and your movement. This keeps too much weight and pressure from being applied to a single area of the body, helping to prevent pressure injuries. Along with wheelchair cushions, ROHO also makes toilet seat cushions, mattress overlays, and cushion accessories.
ROHO also makes toilet seat cushions with their signature air cell design. These air cushions are used to comfortably position and stabilize the body over a toilet or commode. The inflatable cells adjust and redistribute pressure as you move. This helps prevent pressure sores and skin damage that can occur from repeatedly sitting on a hard toilet or commode surface. The ROHO commode seat cushion is more of a square shape that lies flat against the commode opening, creating a stable and comfortable surface to sit on. The ROHO toilet seat cushion is contoured to fit around the toilet seat and has straps that keep it in place.
Using a mattress overlay can help treat existing pressure ulcers and tissue injuries and prevent new ones from forming. ROHO mattress overlays are comprised of sections that can be independently adjusted. This allows you to adjust the amount of support your need for each area of the body and makes for a comfortable sleep position. No electricity or pump is required to fill or run the ROHO mattress overlay, so no noise is created.
Express Medical Supply sells a variety of ROHO accessories to keep your cushion protected and performing at its best. If you notice a tear or a hole in your cushion, ROHO makes a patch repair kit that allows you to fix minor damage. This prevents you from having to purchase a whole new cushion. ROHO also makes washable cushion covers to protect against incontinence leaks. All ROHO air cushions are made of neoprene rubber that is easy to clean and repair.
