JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology

JAY Fusion with Cryo Technology

CryoFluid Technology is designed to provide one of the highest degrees of skin protection by addressing the four primary risks for pressure injuries: pressure, shear, temperature and moisture. It is designed to actively cool the seated skin surface to a therapeutic temperature range and reduces perspiration with extended sitting times. The JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology actively cools for up to eight hours, “resets” during off-loading, and the capacity for cooling won’t diminish over time. This technology is available on JAY Fusion (pictured) and JAY Syncra cushions.

SunMate Cushions

SunMate is premium, medical-grade viscoelastic foam found in many of today’s top wheelchair cushions. Its open-cell structure maximizes airflow to reduce heat buildup. Extraordinary support alleviates sitting fatigue by uniformly distributing pressure while absorbing and dissipating impact energy. SunMate allows for just the right level of immersion for optimum positioning and comfort without bottoming out. This orthopaedic cushion line offers 10 levels of support to accommodate any weight; cushions are available in standard, sheet and custom sizes. Wedges and generic contoured cushion styles prevent sliding.

Ride Forward

Ride Forward

Ideal for users who want comfort, greater sitting stability, improved skin outcomes, and incontinence/spill protection, the Ride Forward surrounds the pelvis with supportive contours while reducing pressure around at-risk bony prominences. This helps improve postural control and balance without compromising skin protection. A top viscoelastic layer provides protection and comfort as it conforms to the body shape. The cushion’s contour, spacer fabric outer cover, and inner incontinence-resistant cover work together to keep both the user and the cushion dry. Even under significant load, the spacer fabric outer cover does not compress.
