Stimulite Contoured XS Cushion
Model CX By Supracor
For people with sensitive skin, the 3-1/2- inch thick, ventilated Stimulite Contoured XS cushion, which weighs only 3-1/4 pounds, features a soft top layer of specially engineered Stimulite honeycomb fused to two bottom layers.

The honeycomb cells contour to body shape enabling bony protuberances to freely sink into the
cushion while supporting the surrounding anatomy. A rear dish provides optimal pelvic positioning for improved posture and stability. Adductors and an abductor comfortably contain the legs, without impairing transferring.
A flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that is fusion bonded without adhesives, retaining all the benefits of the base material.
Thermoplastic urethane, a flexible and resilient material that is non-toxic and safe for the body and the environment. The same material can be found in wound dressings and heart valves.
Stimulite’s flexible cellular matrix consists of alternating thick-and thin-walled cells that flex when compressed to relieve pressure. When sitting on a Stimulite cushion, the compressed cells radiate outwards to surround and support the anatomy. The “footprint” of the flexible cells stimulates capillary action, bringing more blood to tissue for healthier skin.
Most cushions and support surfaces address the microclimate through the cover material. But research has proven this to be ineffective in controlling heat and humidity. 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, our covers are made of natural, breathable fabrics that work with the honeycomb to wick away moisture and minimize sweat.
Stimulite cushions self-adjust to the user by contouring to each individual’s anatomy while equalizing pressure across their surface.
Skin maceration is softening of the skin as a result of continual exposure to heat and bodily fluids or moisture. Severely softened or macerated skin is less tolerant of pressure and can lead to breakdown. Stimulite® honeycomb is perforated, enabling air to circulate and moisture to evaporate which helps maintain skin integrity. The “footprint” of the honeycomb cells and their flexing action stimulates blood flow to enhance circulation.
Stimulite honeycomb relieves pressure by distributing it away from hot spots. As a result, bony protuberances “feel” the same pressure as the surrounding anatomy. The honeycomb cells conform to body shape, and distribute weight uniformly. Additionally, Stimulite honeycomb stabilizes any position due to the axial buttressing of the honeycomb cell walls perpendicular to the anatomy.
Shear Force Reduction
The horizontal stiffness of a material determines both its shear resistance and stability. Too much stiffness increases shear forces, while too little decreases stability. Stimulite honeycomb minimizes shearing without sacrificing stability. 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.

Stimulite® honeycomb can be hand laundered or machine washed in cold water, using a gentle cycle. If your Stimulite honeycomb product includes a cover, wash the honeycomb and cover separately. Use only a small amount (~1 TBSP) of mild detergent. DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH. After washing, shake the honeycomb to remove excess water and then either let it air dry or tumble dry on low heat in the dryer. Do not dry honeycomb with wet clothes as this causes heat retention which can damage the honeycomb.
All Stimulite cushions and support surfaces come with their own mesh laundry bag for machine washing and drying.
* Use front load washers only as agitator can damage honeycomb
Seriously my best purchase for my new rigid wheelchair setup; wish I hadn't waited so long! Do not let the price tag deter you. I am no longer a sweaty mess after spending the day in my chair. Despite the initial firm feeling of this cushion, I am not in any pain by the end of the day and my back feels very supported now that I'm positioned properly. AMAZING!!
