Features
Specifications
Contoured Base
Closed-cell foam base will not absorb water and is resistant to bacteria. The base can be cut with a knife or blade to accommodate drop-base seats, leg-length discrepancies, and “hot spots.” Laterals and a deep ischial pan provide maximum immersion and pressure distribution. Molded thigh troughs improve lower-extremity positioning. Flex Hinge lets the base flex when a VARILITE Wedge is placed underneath it.

Air-Foam Flotation
Designed for pelvic obliquities and other asymmetrical conditions, exclusive Air-Foam Flotation cushion contains two self-inflating, independently-adjustable chambers (patent pending). Adjustments are made using two-way air valves that release air to immerse the user in the foam. The foam conforms to the user, and the user’s weight is distributed over the surface of the cushion. ProForm NX also is available in a single chamber configuration.

Modifiable Thigh Cushion
Breathable, mesh-covered reticulated foam blocks contour over the medial thigh separator and anterior laterals for added comfort and stability. Modifiable Thigh Cushion is patterned in sections for easy modification to match changes made to the Contoured Base. Non-absorbent and washable.

Cover
ProForm NX is available with a mesh or incontinence cover with breathable four-way-stretch material. Reticulated foam inside promotes air exchange and improves pressure distribution. The underside is a rugged nonslip material with hook and loop for added security. ProForm NX cover meets ISO 7176-16 ignition resistance standards for upholstered wheelchair components. Machine washable.

Modifiable Wedge
A modifiable closed-cell foam wedge is standard with each ProForm NX. The Modifiable Wedge increases the weight-bearing load on the back of the thighs and decreases the load on the buttocks, without changing the seat-to-back angle, which. The 2 inch (5 cm) tapered wedge trims easily for custom fitting.
