SmartCells Cushioning Technology

A new generation of cushioning solutions for life’s painful problems.

Life Shouldn’t Hurt™.

At SmartCells®, our mission is to improve people's lives by reducing pain, increasing performance, and preventing injuries. We recognize that the use cases for anti-fatigue, fall protection, rehabilitative therapy, and performance training mats vary widely, so a tailored approach is needed. But common to all of our solutions is the same time-tested, ergonomically engineered technology: the “SmartCells” that give us our name.
Engineered for Compressibility

Optimized to be Soft and Firm

SmartCells products are engineered to specific parameters that reflect the latest research on optimal compressibility. The compressibility of a material is one of the most important test results when evaluating a mat’s performance. Our mats become softer as compressed, to cushion and decrease fatigue, but are also firm enough to maintain balance and resist bottoming out.

Designed for Muscular and Skeletal Health

Balanced for Stability and Instability

SmartCells products provide a stable surface supported by unstable cells that ‘soften’ as needed in response to surface activity. The instability encourages normal postural changes that increase blood flow to working muscles, while the stability promotes subtle micro-movements throughout the body.

Created with Elite Cushioning

Energy Absorbed, Energy Returned

SmartCells products are engineered to absorb impact forces and rebound energy in phase with body movement. The ability to absorb impact ensures that falls and sudden movements are cushioned properly. As pressure is shifted, the unique SmartCells return energy in a spring-like motion, effectively reducing fatigue.

Built to Last

Clean, Durable, and Designed for Use

SmartCells mat surfaces can easily be swept, mopped, or vacuumed. Pressure washing with soap and water is also an option and does not damage the mat. Built with industrial quality, our mats are designed to lay flat and avoid shifting. Heavily resistant to edge damage, tearing, and elastic breakdown, our mats also come with an 8-year limited warranty.

Anti-Fatigue Solutions

How SmartCells Works

Stable Support: Optimized for Human Performance

SmartCells® Cushioning Technology has a “resting state” – much like a non-compressed spring – with a natural, supportive, upright force that provides a compressible, soft surface that is also stable and supportive.

Cushion on Impact: The More Force, the Softer it Becomes

SmartCells® Products compress and absorb pressure/impact energy from standing, weight-shifting, walking, or from the impact of a fall. After reaching a “critical threshold” the cellular structures soften and collapse laterally, without bottoming out.

Return Energy: In Phase with your Natural Movement

Like miniature springs, SmartCells® Technology stores impact energy until pressure is reduced or eliminated. The resilient rubber material and structure work “in-phase” with body movements to actively rebound, releasing their stored energy back into the body.

Why Customers Choose SmartCells

Since the introduction of SmartCells® Cushioning Technology decades ago, it has become the trusted solution for the world’s top companies, universities, institutions, and brands by helping them relieve pain, increase performance, and prevent injuries... Because Life Shouldn’t Hurt.
