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.
Say goodbye to old fashioned methods of temperature and humidity control such as handheld fans, water sprays, ice packs, or avoiding any heat generating activities all together.

"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."
