Supracor Pediatric Contoured Cushion

Starting at: $219.00

Designed for positioning and comfort, the Stimulite Contoured Pediatric cushion consists of a soft top layer fused to a firmer bottom layer of flexible Stimulite honeycomb.

Adductors, abductors and an ischial dish comfortably position the child, while the soft honeycomb cells hold him or her securely in place. By providing optimum pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction and ventilation, this very comfortable cushion helps protect children’s skin against pressure sores.

At 2-1/2-inches thick and weighing 1-2 pounds, this cushion is suitable for all activities. Machine washable.

MACERATION RESISTANCE
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.

PRESSURE RELIEF PLUS POSITIONING
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.
