The Supracor Stimulite Slimline wheelchair cushion features a low profile, contoured design for moderate positioning support and maximum comfort making it an ideal cushion for active users.
This wheelchair cushion features Stimulite technology which is a flexible thermoplastic urethane that is fused together to form a honeycomb shape. The soft, flexible honeycomb construction distributes weight evenly for pressure relief and conforms to the user's body shape to help prevent shearing.
Tiny perforations in the cells walls allow air to circulate both horizontally and vertically for better air flow and moisture evaporation to keep the skin cool and dry.
The Stimulite Slimline features adductors, an abductor and a rear dish to create a subtle contour to assist with proper immersion into the cushion, pressure relief for bony prominences and mild positioning support. Available with a flat or sling style bottom to accommodate different wheelchair seat types.

If you have not tried this cushion yet, I highly recommend it. It is very comfortable and I haven't had to worry about pressure points with this cushion. I have used this style of cushion for about 8 years. What I like about it over other cushions is the low maintenance. It won't deflate because of a hole, it won't leak gel, or any of those other things that happen with those specialized pressure reducing cushions. The cushion feels a bit hard at first when it is new, but a firm kind of hard, not a "I've got to get off this" kind of hard. After a week you won't even notice that, and if you sit in another cushion it will feel mushy and without any support and you will want to get back into this one. You can wash this cushion in the washing machine, and the cover that comes with it is a fairly sturdy fabric that breathes. After about 2 years it will start to break down and you will want to replace it. (original post date October 11, 2010)
