AIRHAWK® is the leading pioneer in patented Air Cell Technology since 1973. For over 40 years, this revolutionary and time-tested technology has been used in a variety of medical and non-medical applications bringing better health, safety, and unsurpassed comfort to thousands of individuals all across the globe.
This groundbreaking technology was originally invented for wheelchair users. People who spend up to 12 hours seated each day are at great risk for painful and sometimes life-threatening pressure ulcers. The inventor, Robert H. Graebe, spent years developing a clinically proven solution to the problem. Ultimately, he created a remarkable cushioning technology that equalizes forces over weight-bearing areas of the body, which relieves dangerous pressure points.
Mr. Graebe also discovered that his patented Air Cell Technology has even more extraordinary properties than just pressure equalization in medical applications – it also controls vibration and absorbs shock! Truck drivers who spend hours strapped into the seat of an 18-wheeler, motorcycle riders who are at the mercy of engine and road vibrations, and office workers who spend long hours seated in a chair, experience significant fatigue, numbness, and even health risks such as spinal column compression.
The world renowned AIRHAWK® brand includes motorcycle seat cushions, truck cushions, office chair cushions, seat cushions for agricultural and construction vehicles, aviation seat cushions, and bed pillows. Patented Air Cell Technology is also embedded in specific Danny Gray customized motorcycle seats.
In 1997, AIRHAWK® began supplying patented Air Cell Technology to the transportation and recreation industries, as well. In early 2015, AIRHAWK International LLC, acquired the AIRHAWK® brand, product lines, manufacturing, and distribution for all motorsports, office, and additional non-medical product applications.
