More About This Product

SSI: Transform a Saggy Wheelchair Seat Into a Flat, Comfortable Platform

AliMed® Solid Seat Insert™ (SSI) provides a flat sitting foundation for any cushion. Helps balance user's weight for stability and to reduce the tendency of forward sliding. Creates minimal seat rise so user's feet will reach floor. This allows the post-CVA wheelchair user to easily propel chair using one arm and one leg while getting the benefits of a level surface: a balanced pelvis, even weight distribution over both ischial tuberosities, and improved posture.

Firm closed-end foam with a convex bottom and flat top.

SSI is available Uncovered or with a No-Slip Cover (Grey vinyl with rear safety ties) for incontinent patients or those who move and slide involuntarily.

SSI Dimensions: 18"W x 16"D or 16"W x 16"D. 1-1/2" thick (center)

SSI Features: Closed-cell foam, Waterproof, Easy to wipe clean

Create a flat seating surface.

Solid Seat Insert™ (SSI) solves the problem of “sling-seat sag” by creating a flat, level surface that provides postural support, balances the pelvis, distributes weight evenly on both ischial tuberosities, and discourages side-to-side tilt. A sagging, curved sling-seat wheelchair, on the other hand, leaves the user with a poor sitting foundation. Common (yet less effective) approaches involve using a hard surface to bridge the sagging seat cavity. This means raising the user too high, resulting in poor stability. The SSI’s semirigid, self-cushioning foam block with a convex bottom and flat top effectively fills this cavity to achieve a flat sitting surface while maintaining a proper height. AliMed’s shaped-foam approach offers extra cushioning, minimum seat rise, and light weight (8-1/2 oz.). Seat flatness is significantly improved, limited only by the extent of original seat sag.
