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”
