Kuchofuku: Air Conditioned Seat Cushion

2008-08-11
Kuchofuku, which develops and sells air conditioned clothing that uses almost no energy compared to conventional air conditioners, has developed the "Suzukaze" air conditioned seat cushion as its newest product. Humans generate sweat to regulate body temperature, and the new air conditioned cushion uses this inherent body temperature regulation function and the minimal amount of energy necessary to power a fan in order to provide the ideal cooling level for humans.

"This Kouchou Cushion features a new material inside called the super spacer which has the strength to support the person's weight and the shape of each spacers is specially designed to bend flexibly. If you place a soft cushion beneath it, it can transfer the softness of the cushion to the body.  The continuous air flow traveling from the fan through the grid of spacers allows for a person to sit comfortably with no build-up of sweat or humidity within the cushion. "

When the small fan that is built into the cushion rotates, over 170 liters of air per minute is sent into the cushion, thus dissipating the heat and moisture accumulated around the buttocks. The cushion weighs only 261 grams, and because of this lightweight design it can be easily rolled up and carried around in compact form. Another attractive feature is that the cushion is very economical. Even if the cushion is used every day for 8 hours a day, the monthly electricity fee is less than 5 yen, or 5 cents.
