Invacare Matrx Flotech Solution


The Invacare Matrx Flotech Solution Pressure Cushion is one of Invacare's most frequently prescribed cushions across the NHS for high risk applications where the prescriber needs a gel/ foam hybrid cushion. The Matrx Solution is a gel and foam combination cushion rated for clients with a very high risk of developing ulceration, or for those who are currently managing existing ulceration.

The base of the Flotech Solution is constructed of a slim moulded foam that has the dual function of providing some positioning support for the pelvis but also to contain the gel sacs in their respective positions. The sacral well at the rear contains the gel sacs ensuring good displacement of gel but also preventing over-displacement which could lead to high risk pressure zones developing. 

The gel sacs themselves are formed into a one-piece overlay which is replaceable if required. The overlay has two sacs at the rear to offload pressure around the IT's (Ischial Tuberosities - 'sitting bones') and a further five smaller sacs underneath the thighs. 

The combination of the foam and gel makes this cushion quite heavy when compared to foam-only or air cushions, but where gel is required the Flotech Solution is still the go-to cushion of choice. 

Matrx Flotech Solution cushions are often prescribed for people who require low postural management but who score as very high risk on the pressure risk assessment. Clients on the Flotech Solution cushions may typically spend upwards of four hours seated and may have reduced sensation of their sacrum. Clients will usually have reasonable postural management capability (can keep their trunk upright without too much prompting) and a level pelvis (no identifiable pelvic tilt or rotation). Where a client does present with increased pelvic complexities it is likely we'll not prescribe the Flotech Solution and will instead consider the Flotech Solution Xtra which affords much greater control over the pelvis.

We typically have a Flotech Solution Xtra available for demonstration. If you'd like to take a look or receive some training on its applications please get in touch. 

This is a product sold on prescription and is available in many different configurations. Getting this right for you or your client is of great importance to us and as such we offer free assessments and demonstrations.

Our assessments scale in complexity depending on the clinical requirements and can be conducted over the telephone for low complexity equipment or more typically here in the assessment suite or at your residence.

All assessments are currently free to both private and NHS clients for equipment with values over £150 ex VAT.
