POLYAIR® 100 & POLYAIR® 60

The POLYAIR® 100 and POLYAIR® 60 are named after their cell height (in millimetres). 

  • POLYAIR® 100 = 100mm / 10cm / 4 inches high
  • POLYAIR® 60 = 60mm / 6cm / 2.4 inches high

Maximum user weight for POLYAIR® cushions is 28.3 stone (180kg).

3 Year warranty on all POLYAIR® cushions, and 2 years on covers.

Both cushions are avalable in either single or two compartments. (Limited sizes available for single compartment cushions)

The two compartment cushions are suitable to be used any way round (depending on access to the inflation valves), to provide a solution to either a left/right or a front/back configuration. The separate compartments can be inflated to the same level, or at different levels to manage situations such as pelvic imbalance.

For more stability see the POLYAIR® Comfort.

Inflation and Checking on 2 Compartment Cushions.

Inflating the 2 compartment cushions is the same as inflating the single compartment cushions, except that it has to be done twice. The hand pump supplied with the cushion inflates the cushion quickly, and easily.

With the use of the pressure gauge, attached to the pump, setting the inflation for users is simple:

  • Switch the pressure gauge on - the lights will flash.
  • Attach the pump hose to the cushion. Inflate the cushion until the MIN light is on steadily. (Repeat on second compartment, if the cushion has two compartments)
  • Seat the user on the cushion correctly.
  • Gently press the orange air-release button to allow the user to become immersed into the cushion. Keep checking the setting of the cushion, until appropriate setting has been reached. (See full set up guide here)
