StimuLite Pressure Relief On Top Cushion Cover

For those who frequently use wheelchairs or have limited mobility, finding a cushion that provides adequate pressure relief while remaining affordable and versatile can be difficult. The StimuLite Pressure Relief On Top Cushion Cover is designed to be the solution to these problems, allowing the user to experience many of the benefits of StimuLite honeycomb technology, without the price tag of some of the higher-end StimuLite cushions.

How Does the On Top Cushion Cover Enhance Comfort?

The StimuLite On Top Cushion Cover is as easy to use as can be. Simply place the cover on top of your standard cushion, and it will instantly add breathability to control heat and moisture, while adding comfort to provide superior pressure relief. With the use of a StimuLite honeycomb top layer, and a foam cushion bottom layer, StimuLite has made possibly their most versatile pressure relief solution to date.

Affordable Comfort

The first hybrid cushion to be introduced by StimuLite, meaning one that uses both foam and StimuLite honeycomb, the on top cushion cover provides a novel and affordable way to experience StimuLite comfort on a budget. This is achieved by contouring the foam base in order to mimic the advanced contour of the honeycomb on top, allowing the user to experience breathability and comfort without an entirely new cushion. 

Is This Cover Washable?

Hygiene is of the utmost importance in a pressure relief wheelchair cushion, as the user can potentially spend long stretches of time sitting on it. The designers of the StimuLite On Top Cushion Cover have recognised this, manufacturing this item with naturally antibacterial and antifungal material that's machine washable with the supplied laundry bag.

How Does StimuLite Honeycomb Work?

StimuLite cushions are made with a soft, flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that has 'memory', is lightweight, and distributes weight evenly along its surface. Its cellular matrix consists of alternating thick and thin walled cells that flex when compressed to relieve pressure. When a user sits on a StimuLite cushion, the compressed cells radiate outwards to surround and support the anatomy, self-adjusting to each individual and providing excellent stability.

How Breathable Are StimuLite Cushions?

StimuLite honeycomb features a unique ventilation system consisting of tiny perforations in the cell walls, allowing air to circulate both horizontally and vertically. This creates an ideal microclimate for long-term sitting comfort, helping to reduce sweat and moisture to minimise shear and friction forces on the skin. StimuLite has a proven track record among wheelchair users, where performance is critical to preventing life-threatening skin breakdown.

Maceration Resistance 

StimuLite honeycomb is perforated, enabling air to circulate and moisture to evaporate, thus helping to maintain skin integrity. The 'footprint' of the honeycomb cells on the user's skin, along with their flexing action, help to stimulate blood flow and enhance circulation.

Pressure Relief and Shear Reduction

StimuLite honeycomb works to relieve pressure by distributing it away from hot spots. Due to this, bony protuberances experience the same pressure as the surrounding anatomy, eliminating potential problem areas. The honeycomb conforms to body shape, distributes weight evenly, and stabilises the user in any position. The cells align themselves with the body to flex and unflex, moving with the skin and reducing dangerous shearing forces.

What If I Require More Back Support?

When adjusting to any new wheelchair cushion, you may find that your chair's back support feels slightly different, and you may require the use of an additional back support for maximum comfort. In these cases, we recommend the Lumbar Support for StimuLite Wheelchair Cushions, which can be placed on your current wheelchair to provide better back support. The Lumbar Support can be purchased using the tick box near the top of the page.
