Scope

This document specifies apparatus, test methods, and disclosure requirements for characterization of
wheelchair seat cushion immersion and envelopment properties using indenters instrumented with
pressure sensors.
This document expands the characterization of products intended to manage tissue integrity
(ISO 16840-2) and provides a standardized indenter for other wheelchair seating tests.
It does not provide information specific to cushion performance for a particular individual user, nor is it
intended to characterize envelopment or immersion under higher loading conditions, nor to assess the
weight capacity of a cushion.
This document includes a method that is specific to 220 mm and 255 mm indenters. Dimensions are
provided for a 380 mm indenter to allow for extension of the method to larger patient simulation.
