The Lite Cushion is the lightest foam wheelchair cushion available. Weighing less than 800g, the Lite cushion is contoured to assist in correct positioning of the pelvis and thighs and it’s Airflow design creates ventilation beneath the user. Cutouts beneath the ischial tuberosities and a high resiliency foam insert further decrease pressure to protect the skin from breakdown. To protect the cushion, the cover features wicking material and a layer of 3DX spacer fabric that promotes airflow and eliminates moisture.
Throughout the design process, every component of the JAY Lite cushion was analyzed and developed to create the lowest possible weight. Weighing a mere 0.8 kg, the JAY Lite is the perfect complement to the numerous ultra lightweight aluminium and titanium chairs available in today’s market.
Contoured Airflow Foam Base
The Lite’s foam base is mildly contoured to encourage proper positioning of the pelvis and thighs. A perfect complement to ultra lightweight wheelchairs, its Airflow design provides ventilation and airflow beneath the client.
OptiWell with Reticulated Foam Insert and Ischial Cutouts
JAY’s engineers used average pelvic bone measurements to determine the shape and size of the Lite’s OptiWell, which distributes weight over a greater area. Cutouts beneath the ischial tuberosities and a reticulated foam insert further minimize pressure to protect the skin from breakdown.
