Mild Contour and Profile is Ideal for Active Users. The perfect cushion for active people and those at lower risk for decubitus ulcers, the ventilated, 2-3/4-inch thick, double-layered Stimulite Slimline cushion is designed with a low profile and weighs only 3 pounds. Adductors, an abductor and a rear dish form a subtle contour for optimal comfort and support.
STIMULITE SLIMLINE XS CUSHION
Designed with a mild contour and low profile for active people. The ventilated Stimulite Slimline XS cushion features a soft top layer of specially engineered honeycomb fused to a bottom layer with sensitive skin. The compliant honeycomb cells contour to body shape enabling bony protuberances to sink into the cushion while supporting the surrounding anatomy freely. Light and comfortable, the Stimulite Slimline XS cushion is 2-3/4-inches thick and weighs only 3 pounds. Machine Washable.
STIMULITE SLIMLINE SLING VERSION
Similar to the original Stimulite Slimline cushion, this option gives wheelchair users a Sling version as opposed to the original Flat version for their canvas seat base.

WHAT MAKES STIMULITE CUSHIONS DIFFERENT?
Sleek and modern, Supracor’s revolutionary Stimulite honeycomb is fast replacing conventional cushioning materials—foams and gels—in a wide range of seating applications, from office furniture to aerospace.
Skin maceration is softening of the skin due to continual exposure to heat and bodily fluids or moisture. Severely softened or macerated skin is less tolerant of pressure and can lead to a breakdown. Stimulite® honeycomb is perforated, enabling air to circulate and moisture to evaporate, which helps maintain skin integrity and keep the body at ambient temperature. Our Stimulite products are machine washable and dryer safe, making it easy to maintain good skin hygiene.
Honeycomb’s cellular structure provides uniform load distribution and extraordinary comfort. 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 over a much wider area than conventional foam, gel, and air products. Additionally, Stimulite honeycomb stabilizes any position due to the axial buttressing of the honeycomb cell walls perpendicular to the anatomy. The honeycomb cells flex and compress with movement as an added health benefit, stimulating blood flow to enhance circulation.
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.

We’ve just had a bit of an upgrade, with the launch of the new website we thought it was the perfect time to incorporate a planned name change as well.
We know it can be a bit of a shock, so we just want to take this moment to re-assure you it’s still the exact same team, with the same values and same quality service – just a new name that more suits our future plans!
