STIMULITE® CONTOURED PAEDIATRIC CUSHION
Designed for positioning and comfort, the Stimulite Contoured Paediatric cushion consists of a soft top layer fused to a firmer bottom layer of a flexible Stimulite honeycomb. Adductors, abductors and an ischial dish comfortably position the child while the soft honeycomb cells hold him or her securely.
This very comfortable cushion helps protect children’s skin against pressure sores by providing optimum pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction, and ventilation. This cushion is suitable for all activities at 2-1/2-inches thick and weighing 1-2 pounds.

Total Pressure Management®
A soft, flexible form of aerospace honeycomb with “memory”.
The Stimulite cushion structure and materials take the memory away from dense memory foam and aerate your skin, comfort, and positioning all year round.
Stimulite is lightweight and distributes weight uniformly across its surface to relieve pressure.
When sitting on any Supracor Stimulite honeycomb structure cushion, the compressed cells radiate outwards to surround and support varied unique anatomy, 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 horizontally and vertically, creating an ideal microclimate for long-term sitting comfort.
Supracor Stimulite cushioning provides Total Pressure Management®.
As its name implies, the “footprint” of the flexible Stimulite honeycomb cells stimulates capillary action to enhance circulation, combating the numbness that can occur when sitting for long durations.
The washing machine and the entire cushion routinely maintain the longevity of the Supracor Stimulite cushion is unbeatable!
Unique Stimulite honeycomb structure bounces back to form with the routine recommended wash in your standard washing machine. Unlike any other cushion material washing, the Stimulite cushions themselves only improve by your washing machine and rapidly dries when hung up to dry.
Extremely hygienic and safe for the home and environment.
The Stimulite honeycomb is antimicrobial, allergen-free, non-toxic, fire retardant, recommended machine washable, and 100% recyclable.
Total Pressure Management®
Skin maceration softens 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.
Pressure Relief plus Positioning
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, the 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.
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.
