Secure Fall Management Products Wheelchair Sling Seat Rigidizer Support with Safety Straps

The Secure® SCSS-1 Wheelchair Sling Seat Rigidizer Support with Safety Straps is designed to fill the concave gap naturally created when a resident or patient is seated in a soft vinyl sling-style wheelchair seat. The convex bottom of the seat rigidizer fills the concave gap providing a flat, firm surface to support flat bottom wheelchair cushions. The rigidizer is designed to decrease the hammocking effect of wheelchair sling seat upholstery, providing a firm stable base of support. It helps provide a solid surface to eliminate uneven weight distribution and assists with proper posture & comfort of your patient or resident.

For many wheelchair users, sling seating promotes internal rotation of the lower extremities, sacral sitting, posterior pelvic tilt, loss of natural lumbar lordosis, and obliquity of the pelvis. Such poor positioning can result in discomfort and long-term problems. The Secure rigidizer support helps prevent these issues from occurring.

The Secure rigidizer offers an easy and cost-effective solution to the problems of sling seat wheelchairs. It is placed between the wheelchair cushion and sling seat upholstery, then secured to the wheelchair with the safety strap. With the rigidizer in place, the user benefits from improved sitting balance, more neutral pelvic position, greater spinal extension, and overall improved comfort. The Secure rigidizer works in conjunction with most gel, foam and air wheelchair cushions.
