Airhawk Seating System

Airhawk Seating System

Airhawk’s parent company, The ROHO Group, Inc., has been the leading pioneer in Shape Fitting Technology® since 1973. The technology has been used in medical applications to bring health, safety and comfort to some very intense pressure situations. The technology was originally invented for wheelchair users. People who spend up to 12 hours a day seated are at risk of painful and sometimes life-threatening pressure ulcers. Robert H. Graebe spent years developing a solution to the problem. He invented a cushion that equalized forces over the weight-bearing areas of the body, relieving dangerous pressure points. 

His cushion, the ROHO®, was designed with supple interconnecting air cells to allow a patient to virtually float on air. The ROHO cushion became renowned in the medical profession, and the same patented technology was later used to create mattresses for long-term care patients and the world famous Airhawk seat.

"I'm not sure we could have got round without these. The inflatable compartments are all linked up, so your weight constantly moves around and you don't ever get saddle sore." - Ewan McGregor quoted in MCN following his LONG WAY ROUND adventure.
