Total Pressure Management®
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.
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, 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.
