What is a Saddle Seat?
Saddle Cushions are designed to provide special seating protection for patients, such as geriatric patients that are prone to skin breakdown potentially leading to decubitus ulcers. These cushions are highly specialized and provide the following:
* A high stretch, lightweight polyurethane top cover material that provides less seating resistance, improved pressure relief, better airflow and minimizes accumulation of moisture.
* Double density cushion for increased protection including a saddle type seat that provides the proper adduction/abduction of the proper positioning of the legs including keeping the critical pressure points from making improper contact. A surface gel pack that molds to the body provides extra protection and helps to keep the legs / body in the proper position.
