The Best Ventilated Cushion: Stimulite Honeycomb Cushion
Stimulite® honeycomb cushions and support surfaces provide Total Pressure Management® - pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture—in a uniquely modern design.

Made from an advanced medical grade material that's antibacterial, antifungal and odor resistant, these lightweight, machine-washable cushions and support surfaces help promote clean, healthy skin and are a breeze to care for.

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, the covers are made of natural, breathable fabrics that work with the honeycomb to wick away moisture and minimize sweat.

Total Pressure Management®
Maceration Resistance
Honeycomb Complete Ventilation System
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
Honeycomb Uniform Load Distribution
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
Honeycomb Diffuses Lateral Forces
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.
