The Stimulite Pediatric Contoured wheelchair cushion can generally be categorized as a honeycomb cushion due to its honeycomb-like structure. Supracor - the manufacturer of this product - specifies this cushion as follows.
The extra cover option refers to purchasing a Stimulite Pediatric Contoured cushion and the extra polyester cover at the same time (not separately). The extra sheepskin cover option references real New Zealand sheep skin that stretches in true four way stretch fashion (i.e., the cover stretches in the width direction and in the perpendicular front-to-back direction). The optional water-proof cover fits around the top and sides of the cushion in shower-cap fashion.
If a custom taper, rail, notch, or leg cut is desired, complete and return the Custom Cut Stimulite form. Note that the back two corners are already inset a bit in Supracor's standard Pediatric Contoured cushion geometry. Also note that custom tapers greater than one inch (the difference between the back and front widths) may adversely affect the Pediatric Contoured's contouring.
Its perforated, open cell structure permits more air circulation against adjacent buttocks and leg areas than most other types of cushions. The associated air circulation assists in the prevention of skin maceration. Note that the use of a non-porous cushion cover countervails the cushion's advantage with regard to air circulation.
An optional half inch thick obliquity pad (or two pads if an inch thickness is needed) can be useful in helping to compensate for hip asymmetry (i.e., a pelvic obliquity).
The Stimulite Pediatric Contoured is suitable for wheelchair-bound individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) or other disability.
