The Zip Cushion is a positioning and skin protection wheelchair cushion for kids. The cushion’s dual-layered foam base incorporates structural support and comfort. To assist with mobility the cushion’s design makes it ultra lightweight, weighing just over 500g. For improved protection, the Zip cushion features two covers – the inner cover is water-resistant and easy to clean and the outer layer stretchy and machine washable. Your child’s cushion can even be customised to their favourite colour sidebands at no extra cost.
Soft Foam Base with Varying Firmness
The Zip cushion’s dual-layered foam base combines structural support and comfort. Typically, a child using an 8″ wide cushion may require a slightly softer foam than a child using a 14″ wide cushion. For this reason, the firmness of the Zip’s foam base increases with the cushion width.
The comfortable and soft outer cover offers a unique benefit: it’s antimicrobial. The X-static fabric is impregnated with silver, which studies have shown actually inhibits microbe growth. This same material is also used in bandages, hosiery, and footwear to name a few. The outer cover is black as standard, and additional spares covers in pink or blue can be purchased.
Weighs as Little as 1.2 Pounds!
When it comes to pediatric mobility, every pound holds more weight. Because of their low body weights, children’s independence is greatly impacted with every added pound. That’s why JAY engineers designed the Zip to weigh as little as 1.2 pounds!
A dual layered contoured foam base, and a soft, stretchable outer cover create a very comfortable ride for kids. The 3DX spacer fabric in the outer cover also promotes air movement to prevent heat and moisture build-up.
