The Zoid Performance cushion is the first and only cushion designed to enhance athletic
performance. The Zoid is also the only Performance cushion to feature the #1
impact and vibration reducing technology.
The Zoid uses the #1 Impact and Vibration Reducing Technology on the market! Multi-stiffness foams are bonded to airtight materials to produce a self-inflating support surface. The foams provide stability while the air provides the pressure distribution, giving the user a competitive advantage.
Three stiffness of foam, bonded to four-way stretch material, offers excellent immersion and pressure distribution. Extra stiff foams at the lateral edges and back is beveled cut for maximum contact and stability. Medium stiffness foam makes up majority of the sitting area and softer foam lies under the ischial and coccyx area to prevent redness.
A low-profile valve allows air in and out of the cushion. By releasing some of the air, the user becomes immersed in the cushion, lowering their center of gravity and improving their dynamic balance. Valve can be tucked inside cover.
The Zoid comes with a moisture wicking mesh cover with reticulated foam sewn to the underside for air circulation. The mesh top cover rolls over the front edge to the underside of the cushion to avoid a seam chafing under the back of the thighs. Three strips of loop are sewn to the low-skid underside and secure to the wheelchair with adhesive hook for extra grip.

Bought this cushion 3 weeks ago, and it's already broken! The valve came loose due to me transferring, so I am sitting on a flat chair. I tried calling Varilite and was only able to leave a voicemail. I definitely will not repurchase is cushion, especially if it exposes me to the possibility of skin breakdown.
