TOTAL PRESSURE MANAGEMENT®

STIMULITE CUSHIONS NOW AVAILABLE FROM GERALD SIMONDS

Gerald Simonds Healthcare has a long and distinguished track record of introducing world class Wheelchair Seating Systems to the UK market. The latest addition to the renowned Gerald Simonds portfolio is the complete range of Stimulite lightweight cushions which use a soft, flexible 'honeycomb' form to distribute weight uniformly, giving unique comfort and postural stability. When a user sits on a Stimulite cushion, the compressed honeycomb cells surround and support the anatomy, self-adjusting to the individual whilst providing excellent stability. At the same time a unique ventilation system allows air to circulate both horizontally and vertically, creating an ideal micro-climate for long-term sitting comfort and skin protection.

Since 1994 Stimulite cushions have been recognised worldwide for providing 'Total Pressure Management®' - pressure relief, shear reduction and ventilation to control heat and moisture, the keys to preventing skin breakdown. Stimulite has a proven track record among wheelchair users where performance is critical to prevent potentially life-threatening decubitus ulcers. During the recent London 2012 Paralympic Games, the USA Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team used Stimulite cushions during all their matches for their shock-absorption, pressure relief, stability and ventilation. They also provide an additional benefit important to long-term sitting comfort; the 'footprint' of the flexible cells stimulates capillary action, keeping oxygenated blood, helping to maintain skin integrity.

Stimulite cushions are hygienic, safe and offer total comfort. Uniquely, both cushions and covers are machine washable. They are naturally antibacterial, antifungal and allergen free making them long lasting, durable and cost effective in use.

Gerald Simonds offers the full range of Stimulite cushions, include standard, adult, paediatric, sport and bariatric models, specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of disabilities and seating needs, together with the new Stimulite Tension Adjustable Back.
