More About This Product

AliMed® Solid Seat Insert™ with Pommel Here's a truly useful abduction wedge that also eliminates wheelchair seat sag. Fixed pommel resists collapse for the most secure positioning. Pommel is padded with soft, comfortable, polyfoam. For more cushioning and enhanced pressure distribution, choose the model with a 1" T-Foam (Temper Foam) or T-Gel™ layer covering the entire sitting surface.

The solid seat insert is only 1-1/2" thick at the center and effectively fills sling seat sag. The cushion is upholstered in slip-resistant, liquid-resistant vinyl. Back ties included, plus a square of ScootGard which can be used between the cushion and seat to prevent slippage.

Pommel Cushions limit adduction

Pommel Cushions help reduce the risk of adduction or internal rotation contracture while limiting forward sliding in the wheelchair. The pommel also helps separate the knees to reduce skin shear and allow air to circulate. Pommel Cushions are recommended for residents who require a supportive sitting surface and adduction control, who have a tendency to slide forward or require post-op hip replacement care, and those with lower-extremity spasticity.

AliMed Pommel Cushions start with a convex base, filling the sling seat to deliver a level sitting surface and increased tolerance. There are three options available to meet a range of patient needs:

Solid Seat Insert with Pommel
The flat top surface and convex base of the Solid Seat Insert (SSI) eliminates seat sag and creates a level foundation. Choose from three different sitting surfaces. Standard foam is recommended for patients without skin integrity issues; T-Foam™ offers excellent pressure redistribution for those with low-to-moderate skin integrity issues; T-Gel™ offers optimal shear reduction for moderate-risk individuals by mimicking fatty tissue and moving with the skin.

Sit-Straight Wedge with Pommel

Wedge shape positions knees slightly higher than hips to discourage forward migration of the pelvis, making them ideal for those with a tendency for forward sliding.

Release Pommel Cushions

Standard pommel cushions utilize a nonremovable pommel, which presents an obstacle when transferring the patient. Our revolutionary Release Pommel is attached to the cushion by a secure retaining strap. When it is time to transfer, the pommel can be released and dropped out of the way, allowing the transfer to be safely performed with only one assistant.
