Starlock is the high risk pressure relieving air cushion that can give stability and offer zero pressure under sores
- Starlock offers superb Stability when locked off
- Alleviates pressure off vulnerable areas
- Customised shaping by using one pump
- Unprecedented weight distribution
- Single valve high risk air cushion
What it does…
The StarLock high risk air cushion has excellent pressure redistribution properties. The air cells adapt to the body structure, minimising skin breakdown. Perfect for prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers
To improve the sitting tolerance when severe pain is an issue, or off loading is medically prescribed, StarLock technology can create a stable, pressure free zone, with just as good pressure redistribution around the zone
Starlock is available in heights of 4 & 5” (10 & 13cm). For users with severe atrophy in the gluteal area, we recommend 5” (13cm) height. The Starlock cushion can also easily be used as a one compartment cushion.
Now for the science…
The StarLock air cell locking technology provides maximum stability and combines unique positioning possibilities with excellent pressure redistribution qualities.
Immersion and envelopment
The air cell design allows the user to immerse into the cushion. Higher cells provide the best envelopment. The StarLock is available in 5, 7.5, 10 and 13 cm cell heights.
The StarLock cushion has excellent pressure redistribution properties. The air cells adapt to the body structure, minimizing tissue deformation. Perfect for prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.
Pressure free zones
To improve the sitting tolerance when severe pain is an issue, or off loading is medically prescribed, StarLock technology can create a stable, pressure free zone, with just as good pressure redistribution around the zone.

Really pushed its limits
“I used to use the Starlock when I had a pressure sore with areas locked off but I use it now on my wheelchairs as a one section high risk air cushion and I have really pushed its limits at some extreme events I have done.”

CLEANING, MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE
Correct and regular cleaning and mainenance helps to extend the life of the cushion.
All covers can be machine washed, please check the label on the individual cushion. Remove the cover from foam composite before machine washing.
Foam composites are covered with a polyurathane film. Providing this film has not been damaged, clean with soft cloth moistened with water and a neutral detergent.
Do not submerge in water
Do not leave the cushion outside – extended exposure to the elements coudl compromise the effectiveness. Store in a dry (moisture free) and clean environment when not in use.
Please ensure that the orientation compass is positioned correctly. If the cover is not used correctly it may reduce or eliminate the cushions benefits and could increase the risk to the skin and soft tissue.
When putting the cover back on to the foam composite please ensure that the cover has been put back on to the foam composite in the correct orientation, and that the orientation compass is in the correct position.
