What is A Drop Seat on a Wheelchair?

A drop seat is a component used to lower the height of the wheelchair seat to allow the user to reach the footrest or the floor. Drop seats can help when the person is using a wheelchair that is too high for their height. With this arrangement, the user can sit comfortably without hanging limbs or risking a leg injury.

The seat also lowers the center of gravity of the wheelchair, reducing the possibility of the chair tipping over when the user bends forward. Drop seat creates a flat, low-height seating surface without making any adjustments to the wheelchair frame. The low-height sitting surface supports safer transfers, improved posture, and independent wheelchair mobility. The drop seat base can be set to an inclined position creating a wedge effect that can aid proper positioning. This reclining position helps prevent forward sliding, falls, and skin breakdown.

Health Products For You carries drop seats that help provide you solid low-height seating surface for improved posture and positioning. You can try Skil-Care J-Hook Drop Seat Base that can be lowered, raised, or angled up to offer a comfortable seated position for you.


How to Install the Drop Seat in a Wheelchair?

  1. To install a drop seat, the existing sling seat is removed. The drop seat base is attached to the side seat rails using the drop hooks. 
  2. Most of the drop seats come with adjustable hooks. The drop hooks can be set up to lower a wheelchair seat up to four inches or depending on the manufacturer's specifications. 
  3. Then you can place your desired wheelchair cushion on the drop seat base. 
  4. Secure the cushion with safety straps to prevent it from sliding off the drop seat base. 
  5. Some drop seats are universal and can be installed on any wheelchair.
