VAKUFORM products are a unique combination of vacuum technology with highly adaptable and skin-friendly neoprene
material. Through this we are able to guarantee an optimum adaptation free of fold of the material also to extreme body
forms. By bringing in of air the base becomes soft and adapts itself to the body contours. After vacuuming, a firm cushion
shape with a perfect negative mould of the body form will be created. The adaptation of the cushion to the human body surface changes the relation of weight and bearing surface and thereby causes the lowering of the bearing pressure. In this manner the best possible pressure distribution is achieved. In the state of vacuum the base forms a firm upholstery and can
be modeled if necessary. With menacing or already existing dekubitus endangered parts of the body can be „exposed“
by easy impressions of the upholstery with the fingers. In this manner an additional pressure discharge can be reached.
In contrast to conventional adaptation methods of inflexible material our high flexible products allow a quick and easy
new adaptation of the upholstery to changed body positions or anatomical changes. Moreover, even in the state of vacuum
neoprene also features upholstery characteristics leading to higher seating comfort and reduced pressure load.
Each VAKUFORM BASIC and VAKUFORM PRO product consists of a filling of extremely fine polystyrene grains, enclosed in a 3,5 mm eudermic nylon-jersey coated neoprene. The product cover and the lining are manufactured from elastic spacer fabric material that provides an optimum microclimate. The entire product can be disinfected.
We are a crafts enterprise with many years‘ experience in manufacturing of individual seat and positioning systems.
In our workshop we are able to provide customized products depending on your special needs. Our aim is to create
the perfect support for you – exactly after your defaults or after detailed discussion of the necessary care. Besides,
brand new products may originate. We are convinced that in the use of aerial technology and vacuum technology in
connection with neoprene lies a huge potential for the solution of challenges in the REHA and orthopedics technology.
All cushions are custom made according to the client‘s measures as well as to the guidelines of the therapist
and/or the orthopaedic engineer.
A permanently vacuum-thick system is not realizable. Therefore, after evacuating the air the inside pressure in the
upholsteries rises with time again. For that reason it is important that the vacuum of our upholsteries is controlled regularly after an adaptation and is adjusted by using a pump when required.
