    (1) Main Products

    Name Category Good Point
    αPLA SORA Cushion
    Hybrid-type Wheelchair Cushion with an Automated Push-up Function An automatic internal pressure management system maintains the right dispersion of body pressure, and prevents bedsores to offer comfort even during long hours of wheelchair use.
    αPLA F
    Body Pressure Dispersion Mattress Through the unique “4×4” slit design, the mattress fits all sizes from light to heavy persons. It is soft, yet with the right amount of resilience. Heat dissipation in the newly developed urethane foam has been improved by over 30%. The mattress as a whole can be washed, and we were able to further shorten the drying time.
    Hybrid-type Anti-bedsore Mattress It is a hybrid-type mattress based on a highly stable urethane mat with air cells around the waist area. The 54 air cells inflate and deflate back and forth, and left and right. This maintains stability and snugness while providing appropriate body pressure dispersion.
