How to Use Invacare Cushion Rigidizer?

Installing the Seat Rigidizer:
  • Remove seat cushion assembly from the chair. 
  • Open seat cover and remove the foam cushion from seat cover. NOTE: DO NOT REMOVE the backing from double sided tape until you have marked the placement area on the foam cushion. Be sure of placement area as the rigidizer will not re-adhere securely if installed and removed. 
  • Position bottom (underside) of the Seat Rigidizer onto the bottom of the foam cushion to the extreme rear while centering it on the left and right sides. 
  • Outline the foam cushion with a marker, pen or pencil using the Seat Rigidizer as your template to mark the placement area. 
  • After marking placement area, remove the double-sided tape backing from Seat Rigidizer and install Rigidizer onto bottom (underside) of the foam cushion.
  • Press down firmly to adhere the Seat Rigidizer to the foam cushion. 
  • Re-install foam cushion into the seat cover and secure seat cover to a chair with the hook and loop backing.

  • DO NOT install or use this equipment without first reading and understanding these instructions. If you are unable to understand the Warnings, Cautions or Instructions, contact a healthcare professional, dealer or technical personnel before attempting to install this equipment - otherwise, injury or damage may occur. 
  • Ensure that Seat Rigidizer is properly installed per instructions. Movement of the Rigidizer within the cushion may occur causing discomfort to the user if not properly installed. 
  • DO NOT use the Seat Rigidizer on a wheelchair equipped with a rigid seat pan. Use only on sling seat wheelchairs. 
  • The Seat Rigidizer does not in any way change the weight limitation of your wheelchair

  • When trimming the rigidizer, ensure the cut edges are smooth to reduce wear on the inner cover of the cushion.

Questions & Answers

question image
Does this work even if sling seat is already stretched out.

The cushion rigidizer is used in the inside of a cushion cover to decrease the hammock effect of sling seat upholstery. If the seat upholstery is really stretched out it will help a little but not as much as normal.
