Remain in control of skincare, temperature, and moisture buildup.

LCS (Living Comfort Support) Acquires Wheelair

LCS Ltd announce the acquisition of WheelAir. Through active airflow, WheelAir allows for self-regulation of body temperature and moisture control through convection, conduction and evaporation. The system can be adapted to suit all models of wheelchair seating, including custom moulded seating.

WheelAir will operate as a subsidiary of LCS, maintaining its brand identity with its range produced and distributed by LCS. Director, Luke Conway, stated, “LCS have been integrating the WheelAir Care system into our custom moulded seating for several years and customer feedback has always been excellent. Microclimate control is essential to skincare management, this product reduces temperature and humidity for the end user.”

WheelAir founder Corien Staels remains involved with the brand under LCS and will continue to work with existing and new customers. LCS are now working with seating providers, distributers and original equipment manufacturers to enhance their product’s competitiveness and innovation.

"I mainly suffer from heat rashes on my skin which show up as red bumps. The big problem is that these bumps on the lower back and buttocks tend to open easily, which leads them to getting infected. "With WheelAir, I have to worry less about heat and moisture related issues and I no longer have to use creams or antibiotics."

“I find overheating very, very uncomfortable. It’s also very hard to control. It limits what I can do. My body feels noticeably cooler after using the WheelAir. The main benefit is you can cool down at any time.”

"I constantly overheat, which makes me feel very uncomfortable. I used WheelAir every day on holiday and my body felt noticeably cooler after using it. I was much more comfortable doing everything that I did and I was able to relax when out in the sunshine."

"I went to an outdoor party and it was such a warm night. I kept my WheelAir on all night and, I have to say, I really do think it helped stop me from overheating all night. It also kept me looking presentable in my fancy clothes and not a sweaty mess. WheelAir really has made a big difference to my life."
