Kalogon Debuts New Orbiter Accessories to Increase Independence and Confidence for Customers who use wheelchairs

Live an active seated life with Kalogon’s new cushion accessories that adapt to wheelchair users’ needs


Melbourne, Fla. (March 12, 2024) - Kalogon, a leader in smart seating solutions, today debuted a new line of accessories to make its Orbiter smart cushion more adaptable to each user’s unique needs. Kalogon aims to increase customers’ independence and confidence when on the go with Orbiter.


Orbiter by Kalogon is a smart cushion proven to increase blood flow while sitting. Its proprietary air-cell technology analyzes and adjusts pressure points in real time to redistribute weight and maintain blood flow for people who spend extended time sitting.


Now publicly available, Kalogon’s expanded line of Orbiter products includes: 


  • XLR charger – charge Orbiter from the port on most power wheelchairs with a three-pin XLR port

black XLR charger cord and 3 pin power wheelchair plug with Orbiter "O" button for turning on and off and an indicator light

Extender – turn Orbiter on/off or charge it in three to four hours without leaving your seat

  • Incontinence covers – protect Orbiter with an easy-to-clean, waterproof cover that goes discreetly under your existing Orbiter cover

"These enhancements empower Orbiter customers with the confidence to be more independent when using our products and live an active seated life.
