The elastomer is a type of rubber, which, thanks to its internal structure and special composition, has particular characteristics that make it very different from traditional elastomers.
The main property of the material is its viscoelasticity, which makes it highly effective at reducing and absorbing vibrations.
This cushioning function works to prevent the transmission of the harmful vibrations generated as the sitting of the rider into his saddle.
PARAMEDICAL MEMORY FOAM
Opened cells composition, this memory foam is used in paramedical world to make orthesis, anti-bedsore cushion (anti-decubitus) for bedridden people.
Made without oil, our memory foam is light and 100% washable.
They are available in different densities to keep the contact between the rider and the horse without using too many thickness of the pad and keeping the shock-absorbing quality.
Grey Foam : Every half-pad is made with a basis of this high density. The saddle fits well to the horse and you feel well, you don’t need more to prevent back pain.
Pink Foam : Middle density – perfect to offer more comfort to the horse / more fixity to the saddle in case the saddle is rocking ; not a 100% contact with the horse’s back. Used also as a basis for the Optimal Sakari Saddle pad to offer more comfort.
Yellow Foam : Low Density – Used for the drop on our Half-pad by SIAA to keep the contact between your leg and your horse – The principal composition of our Leg Wraps to offer protection and breathing of tendons.
You can add grey/pink foam supports (Anterior / Posterior) to balance the saddle or to make a 2cm half-pad with the standard Half-pad by SIAA.
A good saddle is the priority – the Half-pad by SIAA will never change a bad saddle / non-fitting saddle to a perfect one for the horse. Our priority is to offer the best experience to protect and prevent your back and horse back against shocks and pain.
