The new Posture Seat by Raft’s (formerly ergoSEET) Patented design offers 4 key features that increase seating comfort.
Contoured, therapeutic support designed specifically for wheelchairs.
Airflow – Ports & Pillars allow for movement of air to help keep you cool. The holes in the Posture Seat by Raft allow you to dissipate the heat from your body; the pillars don’t collapse allowing the air to move between you and the seating surface.
Weight Distribution – Pillars work to distribute weight. The Pillars on the bottom are shorter in specific areas to allow for the immersion of your pelvic structure mainly your Ischial Tuberosities, most people may not know the name, but if you say “those two sharp bones that hurt when you sit too long on the bleacher seats” they will immediately understand. As an example a 200-pound person sitting on an office chair will have 130 pounds of weight distributed on the buttocks and posterior thigh those peak pressures are centered on the Ischial tuberosities. Independent testing shows a decrease in peak pressures as high as 71% using the Posture Seat by Raft.
Posture – Varying Pillar heights allow you’re pelvic structure to immerse and tilt forward putting your spine in proper alignment. By putting yourself in the proper seated position you sit more relaxed and reduce stress on your lower back. The Posture Seat by Raft also uses shorter Pillars in the back center of the cushion for the immersion of the coccyx more commonly known as the tailbone, this is another sharp bony prominence that is not ideally suited for significant weight bearing and is also a area of increased risk if the person in a “slouched” posture.
Waterproof – The unique closed cell EVA used to make the Posture Seat by Raft is very different from your standard seat cushions, these are primarily made of either an open cell structure which absorbs moisture and generates heat or gel which will not breath and also generates heat. The Posture Seat by Raft is very unique in the fact that it is comfortable, waterproof and dishwasher safe. Just put it the dishwasher and you have a new seat whenever you want.
