Please see the documentation attached above, as well as the graphics below, that explain the alternate styles and zoning options involving the number of valves. A standard dual valve has two side by side compartments, while a simple single valve has one zone/one compartment. The compartments are shown below in gold vs. blue colors, so that you can see how they are arranged. A dual valve front to back also has two compartments, however they are arranged with one in the back and one in the front instead of side by side with greater prevention of forward migration. The four valve style is offered in two versions (enhanced or front to back), with or without isolation of pelvic supports. The four valve styles have four compartments.
**For a rigid cushion add the Lexan Polycarbonate to the order. Your cushion will then arrive with a cover designed with a pocket for the rigid base, this will keep the cushion and base together. The rigid base is designed to fit between the seat frame, not sit on top like other base supports. The base will match the size of the cushion ordered.
*** The measurements for the wheelchair cushion should always be measured Seat Width x Seat Depth.
