Multi-Layer Design with smartGEL
The NXT BioFit Wheelchair Cushion has been designed for comfort, pressure redistribution and easy maintenance. It’s multi-layer design provides deep immersion, support and skin protection for users at medium to high risk of skin break down, by redistributing pressure over the full sitting surface of the cushion.

NXT SIT (Selective Immersion Technology) perforations are anatomically positioned to support the ischial/sacral area to prevent sliding and shear while maintaining pelvic positioning. The perforations are molded at different depths and are conical in shape. This provides immersion and lower pressures
to the bony prominence’s while supporting surrounding areas that can take a higher load.
NXT Cushions have been designed to ensure that pre-ischial support prevents sliding and provides pelvic support. The moderate abductor/adductor contour ensures mid-line positioning of the femurs. The radius at the rear provides sacral support in addition to matching the contour of modular back supports. The bevel on the front edge accommodates foot propellers, users who wish to sit with a tight front frame angle or those with tight hamstrings.
OFFERS UNPRECEDENTED COMFORT AND DURABILITY
Unlike two-dimensional fabrics, smartx3D uses a three-layer technology that includes two separate fabrics joined by a monofilament yarn that creates a breathable channel between the two fabrics. It is this channel that gives smartx3D its 3D structure and creating a “micro-climate” between layers. Heat and vapour move easily through the highly permeable fabric layer. smartx3D naturally offers a four-way stretch which provides enhanced immersion, aiding in pressure redistribution. Soft, breathable, and with moisture-wicking properties, smartx3D offers the ultimate in comfort.
- Pill resistant and durable
- Antimicrobial capabilities are built into the fabric and will not wash out
- Improves immersion/envelopment
- Reduces shear
- 4 way stretch with 100% recovery
- 20 times more air permeable than standard fabrics
The 3D construction enhances the fabric’s breathability, which in turn dissipates heat, keeping the wheelchair user cooler and dry.
smartGEL and smartx3D – THE PERFECT COMBINATION
The combination of NXT’s smartx3D fabric and smartGEL foam provides the ultimate in comfort and support in our NXT Seating products. Our smartGEL foam offers a higher IFD (Indent Force Deflection and Density), yet it is incredibly soft, highly resilient, and long-lasting. smartGEL is a Visco Elastic foam that is infused with gel. The gel is incorporated into the foam mixture at the molecular level, which allows for 100% homogeneous cooling with no breakdown of embedded gel beads.
- Reduces surface temperature, drawing heat away from the skin
- Provides superior comfort and softness
- Highly resilient and long-lasting
- Higher IFD (Indent Force Deflection and density)
- The gel is 100% infused into the foam mixture vs. embedded “gel beads”
