Supracor Stimulite Contoured Paediatric Cushion
Supracor cushions are constructed from Stimulite; a soft, flexible, lightweight form of aerospace honeycomb. When sitting on a Stimulite cushion, the compressed cells radiate outwards to surround and support the user, self-adjusting to each individual while providing excellent stability.
A unique ventilation system made up of tiny perforations in the cell walls allows air to circulate both horizontally and vertically, creating an ideal microclimate for long-term sitting comfort. Each cell of Stimulite honeycomb is perforated to allow air to flow both vertically and horizontally, keeping the body temperature from rising and preventing humidity. To complete the ventilation system, the cushion covers are made of natural, breathable fabrics that work with the honeycomb to wick away moisture and minimise sweat. Stimulite honeycomb relieves pressure by distributing it away from hotspots and bony, and the honeycomb cells conform to body shape and distribute weight uniformly. The Stimulite honeycomb also minimises shearing without sacrificing stability, as the honeycomb cells align themselves axially to the body, flex with movement to reduce shear forces against the skin and then instantaneously resume their original shape.
The Supracor Stimulite Contoured Paediatric cushion is designed for positioning and comfort, and consists of a soft top layer fused to a firmer bottom layer of flexible Stimulite honeycomb. Thigh and pelvic contouring comfortably position the child, while the soft honeycomb cells hold them securely in place. By providing optimum pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction and ventilation, this very comfortable cushion helps protect children’s skin.
The cushion and cover is machine washable and comes with a laundry bag, making it suitable for users who experience heat retention or incontinence.
