More About This Product
AliMed® Drop Seat fits almost any chair! Sturdy plastic drop seat attaches with strong webbing that independently adjusts in the front and the rear. Lowers seat up to 3". Use as a level seat or incline it for a wedge effect. Add a specially configured 2" thick AliMed® Polyfoam or T-Foam™ Combo Cushion (1" high-density foam topped with 1" Medium T-Foam) that clears the crossbars. Sewn. Vinyl construction. Drop seat fits both 16" and 18"W x 16"D wheelchairs.
Drop seats create a flat,
low-height wheelchair seating
surface without having to make
adjustments to the wheelchair frame.
By lowering the sitting surface, you can
use a higher-profile pressure-relieving
cushion without sitting the patient too
high in the chair, reducing fall risk. Drop
seats allow user’s feet to reach the
floor or foot supports for safer transfers,
independent wheelchair mobility, and
improved posture. Most drop seats can also
be set at an incline (by adjusting rear straps
lower than front straps), creating a wedge
effect on a traditional flat cushion. Reclined
position helps limit forward sliding, reducing
falls and skin breakdown.
