Skin maceration is the softening of the skin as a result of continual exposure to bodily fluids or moisture. Severely softened or macerated skin is less tolerant of pressure and can lead to breakdown. Stimulite honeycomb is perforated, allowing air to circulate through the cushion and moisture to evaporate. a breathable cover wicks away moisture and helps keep the skin dry. Both the Stimulite cushion and its cover are machine washable and dryer safe, making it easy to maintain good skin hygiene.
Honeycomb structure provides uniform load distribution. Stimulite cushions relieve pressure by distributing it away from the hot spots. As a result, bony protuberances "feel" the same pressure as the surrounding anatomy. The Stimulite Slimline Cushion's multi-layered honeycomb construction -- each layer a different stiffness -- provides internal contouring, allowing the user's weight to be distributed over a much wider area as compared to most pressure relief cushions.
Shear Force Reduction:
The horizontal stiffness of a cushion material determines both its shear resistance and its stability. Too much stiffness increases shear force, while too little decreases stability. The three-layered Stimulite cushion minimizes shearing without sacrificing stability. The compliant top layer has a low horizontal stiffness for reducing shear forces against the skin. The two bottom layers have a higher horizontal stiffness for optimal stability. The cushion's stretchable cover works in conjunction with the honeycomb to diffuse lateral force against the skin.
