There is an invisible problem among people with spinal cord injuries, those on bed rest, or the elderly bound to their bed in nursing homes. They are all plagued by pressure sores (debicutus ulcers) because the loss of feeling and mobility in the lower body. These ulcers result from lack of circulation due to pressure on the soft tissues. Ulcers can be large and can extend to the bone.

Typically, post surgical confinement to bed degrades the health of the patient, beginning a downward health spiral. Several prodcuts exist that delay the formation of sores, but currently there is no clinically tested prodcut on the market that prevents their formation.

The Care for pressure sores in general is a major expense, estimated at $3-5 billion a year in the USA. People who use a wheelchair, are bed-ridden for more than eight years have a better than 80% chance of developing at least one pressure sore. Over 60,000 deaths annually in the US are attributed to pressure sore complications.

An average hospital stay of 90 days is required for a typical severe sore. To address the problem of pressure sore formation, Aqua-Aire Cushion designed and built a seat cushion to greatly decrease, possibly prevent pressure sores. Improving reliablity and safety. The cushion works by migrating water and air through a bladder virtually eliminating shear force and pressure on the user. Thus, the seat itself shifts the weight distribution.

Optimization of materials, fabrication method, all attribute to portential applications that extend past the prevention of pressure sores to reduction of fatique in professions that require long periods of sitting, such as truck driving and even office work.
