Stimulite Contoured Cushion
Designed to provide positioning as well as comfort, the Stimulite Contoured Pediatric cushion has 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 the child securely in place. By providing optimal pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction and ventilation, the cushion helps to protect against pressure injuries. At 2.5" thick and weighing 1 to 2 lbs., the cushion is suitable for all activities and is naturally antibacterial.
Matrx Kid*ab*ra Vi Cushion
Ideal for pediatric users at moderate to high risk for skin breakdown, the Invacare Matrx Kid*ab*ra Vi wheelchair seat cushion was designed with dual-density, high-resiliency foam with a viscoelastic insert for comfort and support. The moisture-resistant, breathable cover protects the foam and can be easily wiped clean — important for busy families on the go.
Axiom SP Visco
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:
The Axiom SP Visco (pictured) and SP Fluid, both coded as E2607/8, are available in sizes from 14x14" to 22x20".
Feedback from my customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Sometimes it’s difficult to judge the effectiveness of a seating interface; however, the follow-up comments I received were all good.

Two groups of air bladders inflate, then slowly deflate in this alternating cushion to stimulate circulation and relieve pressure to skin and underlying tissues. The SofTech Basic cycles every 60 seconds and runs for more than 25 hours per charge. The system is contained inside the cushion, so nothing needs to be mounted on the chair. Operation is easy: just a single power switch. The cushion is available in 16x16", 18x18" and 20x20" widths/depths.
Designed for users at lower risk of pressure injuries, the Stimulite Silver is a ventilated, double-layered cushion for use on a wheelchair, recliner or stadium seat. The cushion self-adjusts by contouring to each person’s anatomy while equalizing pressure across its surface. The footprint of flexible cells stimulates capillary action to keep oxygenated blood in tissues and to combat numbness that can occur when sitting for long periods.
Amylior’s new CG Air line of cushions is made of medical-grade PVC for increased durability and stability while maintaining pressure relief benefits. CG Air cushions are easy to clean, do not retain odors, are customizable to the user’s needs, and have no weight limit as long as a clinician or provider can verify that the client is sitting safely and comfortably. CG Air cushions come with a hand pump and a two-year replacement warranty. Cover choices are two-way stretch (standard), 3D mesh or an incontinence cover.
TruComfort 2 with CoolCore
Stealth’s new line of cushions features patented, exclusive CoolCore Technology covers — chemical-free, four-way stretch material that offers moisture-wicking, moisture transportation and moisture evaporation properties. A color guide identifies the suggested HCPCS code and function family, identified with a color-coded PVC patch on each cushion. Other features include contoured, high-density foam bases; lateral and pre-ischial shelf contours; and a range of standard width and depth offerings.
Dynamic Systems Inc.
SunMate cushions combine high-impact energy absorption with soft pressure properties. Its slow spring-back enables it to contour to the user’s body, then slowly return to its original shape once pressure is removed. An open-cell structure maximizes airflow to reduce heat build-up, and viscoelastic properties allow the cushion to uniformly distribute pressure and absorb impact energy to alleviate sitting fatigue. Standard and custom sizes are available, as are wedges and contoured cushion shapes to meet the diverse needs of the wheelchair-using population.
Stimulite Contoured XS
Working with a client who has sensitive skin, but needs a higher level of skin protection and positioning? Supracor’s Stimulite Contoured XS offers “Total Pressure Management” — pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture to help prevent pressure injuries. Stimulite’s unique ventilation system of perforated honeycomb circulates air and evaporates moisture to minimize humidity. The 3.5" thick, ventilated XS weighs just 3.25 lbs. and has a soft top honeycomb layer fused to two bottom layers.
Operating in a similar way to an alternating mattress, the SofTech cushion was designed to both prevent future and help to heal existing pressure injuries. The cushion can be configured to offload directly under an existing injury. This means the client can sit while the cushion offloads under the injury and stimulates circulation throughout the rest of the posterior. SofTech changes pressure distribution as often as 60 times per hour and is therefore much more convenient than doing pressure-relief lifts. SofTech has no cushion size or weight limit, and each cushion is custom made for a specific client.
