Adaptive Wheelchair Cushions

The Kalogon Orbiter Reduces Pressure for Those in Wheelchairs

— September 22, 2022 — Lifestyle
Consumers who use a wheelchair on a regular basis are at risk of developing injuries related to poor circulation, which is something the Kalogon Orbiter cushion system is focused on changing. The cushion system works much in the same way a conventional one does, but features an adjustable design that will respond to the needs of the user. The smartphone-connected system lets the user customize the five areas on the cushion to greatly alleviate pressure on the lower body.

The Kalogon Orbiter cushion system will continuously change throughout the day to reduce the instance of discomfort or injury from being sustained and harnesses the power of a machine learning algorithm. The unit has enough built-in power to support 14 to 16-hours of use per charge.
