Balance with Cryo® Fluid Technology Wheelchair Cushion

A wheelchair cushion technology designed to keep you cooler.

Introducing a revolutionary technology designed to keep you cooler.

The Cryo Fluid technology is a fluid option available for the JAY Balance wheelchair cushion that excels at reducing the risk of pressure injuries. The patented Cryo Fluid provides more options for skin protection. It actively cools the seated skin surface for up to 8 hours (internal testing data at 25° C) while evenly distributing pressure, reducing shear, and lowering the risk of moisture.

Engineered to cool the skin

Engineered to cool the skin

With traditional cushions on the market today, seated skin surface temperatures can rise to 37°C, leading to an increased risk in skin breakdown. Lowering the skin’s temperature as little as 1°C can reduce the risk of skin breakdown significantly.

The Cryo Fluid was engineered to mildly cool the skin within a therapeutic temperature range of 28°C - 35°C, effectively lowering the risk of skin breakdown. The cooler skin surface temperature has the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of moisture associated with localised perspiration.
How Cryo® Fluid Works

How Cryo® Fluid Works

Active Cooling icon

Heat leaves skin surface, cooling the skin

Cryo Fluid features millions of microbeads filled with paraffin wax which melts at a set temperature. Because skin temperature is warmer than the ambient temperature of the Cryo Fluid, heat from the skin is actively transferred into the fluid. This results in a lowering of the seated skin temperature within therapeutic range.

Therapeutic effect: 8 hours icon

A long-lasting effect

In addition to millions of microbeads, Cryo Fluid also utilizes graphite due to its high capacity to effectively disperse heat throughout the fluid. This heat dispersion continues to pull heat from the skin until all microbeads have melted, resulting in a therapeutic cooling effect which can last up to eight hours*. The Cryo Fluid microbeads will naturally re-solidify after the fluid returns to ambient temperature.

Soft contoured foam base

The JAY Balance with Cryo Fluid features a contoured foam base constructed from closed cell foam. Its femoral transition and rear wall help to prevent fluid migration while gently supporting the trochanters and posterior pelvis.
