The WheelAir system is the first temperature and moisture control system designed to fit any wheelchair.

It disperses air evenly across the seat surface to lower temperature, remove moisture build-up, and keep skin dry and clean.Through active airflow, WheelAir allows for self regulation of the body temperature through convection, conduction and evaporation heat loss.

Research demonstrates the necessity to keep your skin dry and clean, the WheelAir Slingback reduces the temperature of the back 9˚C and lowers relative humidity by 25%.


Help your sweat evaporate with WheelAir. WheelAir gently blows the air from around you onto your skin, lowering the relative humidity and keep your skin and clothing dry.


Take control of your body temperature. Heat and moisture is wicked away from your body, while we reduce your skin and body temperature, leaving you cool and refreshed.

WheelAir Cooling System


The WheelAir system is designed to remove excess heat and moisture from the backs of wheelchair users and cool their core temperature. Custom moulded seating systems are known to create lots of unwanted heat and moisture due to their posture correcting qualities.

With WheelAir's cooling system, improve temperature regulation and microclimate control without compromising on posture or comfort.

Aidacare work closely with WheelAir to allow the system to be carefully fitted and built into your scripted wheelchair.

Please get in touch if you would like to see if your current or newly scripted wheelchair can be fitted with the cooling backrest.

WheelAir Cooling Cushion Cover


The WheelAir cooling cushion cover system is a ready to go cover that fits over your current cushion which provides the microclimate, humidity and temperature control benefits of the WheelAir system while keeping the pressure relieving and shear force qualities and comfort of your existing seat cushion.

The WheelAir Cushion Cover instantly promotes even airflow distribution throughout the cushion, lowering relative humidity and significantly decreasing the speed at which the temperature rises.

Testing shows that for the single-density foam cushion, mixed-density foam cushion, the air and moisture permeable compartmented air cell based cushion and lattice ‘honeycomb’ structure cushion, relative humidity reduced steadily while fitted with the WheelAir Cushion Cover and increased steadily while using the own-brand cover.
