Adjustable Shadow Tray
This new shadow tray for the Evolv line is
adjustable in height and depth. It covers
the entire usable height and depth range
of the six previous shadow tray options it is

the user, the tray provides constant anterior
support throughout the sit-to-stand transition
to “shadow” the user in any position
between sitting or standing. The tray retains
the popular flip-up operation that quickly
moves it out of the way and provides a wide-open
base for transfers. The tray is available
in a black-molded or a clear acrylic style.

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.
Dynamic Systems Inc.
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.
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.
Stimulite Tension Adjustable Back
Available for folding and rigid wheelchairs,
the Stimulite Tension Adjustable Back
features Stimulite honeycomb to circulate
air and evaporate moisture while equalizing
pressure for exceptional comfort and
stability. The “footprint” of the honeycomb
cells stimulates blood flow to enhance
circulation. Adjustable Velcro straps accommodate
kyphosis or posterior pelvic tilt.
The honeycomb and removable cover are
machine washable. The Stimulite Tension
Adjustable Back is available in widths from
14" to 24" and heights of 12" and 16".

Precision Comfort Deep
The PC Deep cushion features a high-density,
high-resilience base with a deep well. High-density
foam is used in combination with a
super-soft silicone gel insert in the overlay.
The result is a design created to provide
long-lasting support with deep submersion
of the wheelchair user’s ischial tuberosities
and coccyx to promote superior pressure
reduction. The structure of the Precision
Contour Deep cushion helps to prevent
sacral sitting and encourage proper posture
to reduce user fatigue.
The Invacare Versair Back features lightweight
and comfortable padded upholstery
with a slim profile that easily folds with the
wheelchair for ease in transport and storage.
The outer cover is constructed using mesh
upholstery to wick away heat and moisture.
Alternating 2" tension straps are easy to
adjust. Hook-and-loop straps fit securely
and easily around wheelchair back canes.
This back support is ideal for individuals who
need added comfort and support; its ease of
use also makes this back a caregiver-friendly
