As the lightest cushion in its class, the JAY® Lite is the perfect complement to your ultra-lightweight wheelchair. The cushion is constructed with 3DX™ Microclimatic spacer fabric, Airflow base and the OptiWell™ pelvic loading area. These features provide microclimatic heat and moisture dissipation, superior pressure distribution, and optimal stability in an extremely lightweight cushion. It’s the ideal cushion for users on the go!
Throughout the design process, every component of the JAY Lite cushion was analysed and developed to create the lowest possible weight. Weighing a mere 1.75 pounds, the JAY Lite is the perfect complement to the numerous ultra-lightweight aluminium and titanium chairs available in today’s market.
Microclimatic Heat and Moisture Dissipation
The 3DX™ Microclimatic Spacer Fabric and Airflow Base protect the skin against heat and moisture build-up. The combination provides ventilation and airflow beneath the user.
Superior Pressure Distribution
Based on our anthropometric research, JAY Lite’s OptiWell™ is optimally shaped and sized to optimally distribute pressure under the pelvis. In addition, the ischial cutouts and scooped reticulated foam insert minimize compression and reaction forces when the cushion is loaded.
The JAY Lite is available in a positioning version that includes two adductors and one abductor that are adhered to the base using a pressure sensitive adhesive. Positioning components help the user maintain appropriate postural stability.
The patented cover conforms to the cushion without tension to prevent compromising the JAY Lite’s pressure relieving properties.
The Oletex and EVA foam base was designed front to back to accommodate user needs. The front features a bevelled edge that accommodates contracted leg angles and prevents rubbing. The back was designed with back cane notches, locking the cushion in place, and a sacral notch to protect the coccyx bone.
The JAY Lite cushion simply looks good! You can see our attention to detail with the raised rubber name tag, gray rubber non-stick bottom, waterfall front over-seam, easy hook zipper and custom carrying handle. See for yourself!!
