Super lightweight cushion
Weighing a mere 780 grams, the JAY LITE is the perfect complement to ultra lightweight aluminium and titanium chairs, such as the new Quickie Helium. Its lightweight foam base, inserts and fabric provide structure and support without extra weight.
Superior heat and moisture dissipation
Heat and moisture dissipation are critical to minimise skin integrity issues (heat and moisture are known risk factors for skin breakdown).
The cushion cover uses 3DX spacer fabric that allows heat and moisture to flow easily through the material, without losing ventilation even when compressed. Airflow is increased through the cushion by the punched base and highly porous foam inserts, allowing air to circulate and moisture to be wicked away.
Some seat wells tend to slope too quickly, placing tension on the tissue between the bony prominences of the pelvis and those of the hips and thighs. They may also slope too gradually, failing to reduce weight on the (at risk) bony prominences of the pelvis.
With JAY LITE, the OptiWell pelvic loading area is optimally shaped and sized to evenly distribute pressure under the pelvis, without placing excessive strain on the tissue between the pelvis, hips and thighs.
Ischial cut-outs (cut-outs under the bony prominences of the pelvis ischial tuberosities) and scooped reticulated foam inserts also significantly reduce reaction forces that are caused by foam compression.
Stay cool and look cool!
The JAY LITE cushion simply looks good! You can see the attention to detail with the raised rubber name tag, grey rubber non-stick bottom, easy hook zipper and custom carrying handle.
The bevelled front edge is designed for the active client who prefers to sit in a wheelchair with a tight front-end frame angle or has tight hamstrings.
The pre-contoured angle of the OptiWell wall matches the angle of the pelvic bone structure, resulting in both lateral and forward / rearward stability due to a more evenly distributed load.
In addition, firmness layering of the foam base provides optimal comfort without sacrificing stability. The soft EVA foam provides comfort whilst the firm Oletex foam offers positioning and support.
Also available is a positioning version that includes two adductors and one abductor, helping the user to maintain appropriate postural stability.
