JAY Lite Wheelchair Cushion
Ultra lightweight and superiorly breathable

Ultra lightweight and superiorly breathable

An active life creates heat. That‘s why the JAY LITE wheelchair cushion uses very breathable materials to facilitate air-flow under the user whilst in their wheelchair. For example, the 3DXTM microclimatic cover and Olotex "airflow" base with air vents provide superior heat and moisture dissipation through the cushion‘s material.

So you stay cool and look cool at all times!

The JAY LITE wheelchair cushion provides great skin protection, stability and comfort. To minimise the risk of pressure sores, the anthropmetrically designed Optiwell pelvic loading area (PLA) effectively reduces loading on the ischial tuberosities without overloading the trochanters. Its lightweight reticulated foam insert helps to distribute load with a minimum of weight. Plus, the pre-contoured foam base provides the support you need to keep active!

The JAY LITE cushions offers 2 different contoured base versions. The standard base is ideal for most users who require comfort and pressure redistribution. Its low-profile contour also allows for easier transfers in and out of the wheelchair.

Alternatively, for those who require a higher level of postural stability, the JAY LITE P version provides lateral and medial thigh support which increases the overall stability of the user.
A functional, well thought out design

A functional, well thought out design

The JAY LITE's design reflects the needs and lifestyle of an active wheelchair user. The bevelled front edge prevents rubbing against the back of the legs, eliminating the need for using a shorter length. The corner cut at the lower sides of the cushion also reduces the load on the trochanter (and also reduces the seat-to-floor height). The custom carrying handle offers an easy grip and the notches for back canes locks the cushion into place.
