Product: SofTech Cushion System
SofTech is a custom fabricated automatic alternating cushion system that uses a combination of air and waterproof foam to address the primary cause of pressure ulcers and to continually create movement under the client. The cushion can be configured to offload directly under an existing pressure ulcer, enabling the client to sit while the cushion favors the ulcer and stimulates circulation throughout the posterior. In addition, the SofTech is designed to change its pressure distribution as often as 60 times per hour. Custom offloading favors a current pressure ulcer so healing can take place while sitting and staying active. The firmness and cycle frequency are adjustable for client comfort and personal preference, and all components are integrated into the cushion base, making it easy to transfer from chair to chair. The rechargeable battery will run for more than 40 hours. The user group includes adult, bariatric, and people who currently have pressure ulcers. Each custom fabricated cushion is handmade and customized for each individual client based on needs and current pressure ulcer locations to maximize its effectiveness. No size restrictions or weight limits. HCPCS code is E2609 and MSRP is $4,300 for direct cash sales. An extended warranty is available, as well as lumbar and full back pads, and a moisture control fan.

Product: Stimulite honeycomb cushions
Stimulite is manufactured to be lightweight and distribute weight uniformly across its surface. Its cellular matrix consists of alternating thick- and thin-walled cells that flex when compressed to relieve pressure. When sitting on a Stimulite cushion, the compressed cells radiate outward to surround and support the anatomy, self-adjusting to each individual while providing excellent stability. A ventilation system made up of tiny perforations in the cell walls allows air to circulate both horizontally and vertically, creating an ideal microclimate for long-term sitting comfort. As an added health benefit, the “footprint” of the flexible cells stimulates capillary action, keeping oxygenated blood in tissues and combating the numbness that can occur when sitting for long durations. Supracor’s lightweight Stimulite honeycomb cushions provide Total Pressure Management—pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture—combating the primary causes of pressure sores. Their cellular matrix conforms to body shape, distributing weight uniformly across the cushions while flexing when compressed to relieve pressure and promote blood circulation. Perforations in the cell walls circulate air to eliminate heat build-up. Both the honeycomb cushions and their breathable covers are machine washable. Made to fit all sizes of users. Stimulite cushions self-adjust to the user by contouring to each individual’s anatomy while equalizing pressure across their surface. Both the cushions and their covers are machine washable and dryer safe. Stimulite cushions are reimbursable under one or more of the following HCPCS codes: E2603, E2604, E2607 and E2601. MSRP for Stimulite cushions range from $188 to $614 for standard and $209 to $880 for non-standard sizes
