Vacuum Backrest Insert Cushion

Vacuum backrest insert cushion with Neoprene cover. Ideal for use in the Hippocampe Beach wheelchair although we recommend this is only used on a Hippo with arm-rests and arm-rest infill panels fitted to help hold the insert in place. Many customers also use the Hippo headrest to support the upper part of the cushion too.

Availability: Custom Order, Allow 6 to 8 weeks


Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have seen a huge increase in demand for our outdoor products and we have been working incredibly hard to ensure that Delta Buggy production remains fully operational. Due to the volume of orders and a global shortage of some of the essential materials and components, delivery times for Delta Buggies are longer than usual.  Our friendly customer team can be contacted by phone, email or online chat and we offer a "contactless" assessment service working from photographs and a few simple measurements.  Delichon's online shop is open for business.

Our showroom facilities have re-opened for pre-booked assessments only and we have resumed our Foam-Karve seating clinics for NHS Wheelchair Services and private clients. 


Stock items usually configured and shipped within 3 days.

Product Description


Vacuum Insert Cushions are an ideal companion to the Hippocampe beach wheelchair for those who need a lot more support than the standard Hippo seat has to offer. Used in conjunction with the armrests and mesh infill panels these simple but effective vacuum bead bags allow you to create your own moulded seating supports. Simply shape the bag around the occupant and then suck out the air with the pump provided to create a semi-rigid custom support which can be re-formed any time you want. The neoprene cover keeps the cushion waterproof and is easy to clean.
Contact Delichon if you need help choosing the size or configuration of support that will work best for you.
