The J3 cushion was designed with careful consideration for the Science of Seating. The result: A cushion that features outstanding pressure distribution, comfort, heat and moisture dissipation, and optimal stability. It is comfortable, easy-to-order and can accommodate changing needs. It's a perfect new member of the JAY Family!
JAY OptiWell™ Pelvic Loading Area
Based on anthropometric research, the J3 Cushion's pelvic loading area is optimally shaped and sized to evenly distribute pressure under the pelvis. Available in 3 sizes, the PLA can be selected and sized to fit the user's pelvis regardless of the overall cushion width. Our research suggests that pelvic width varies only slightly from user to user and is not proportional to hip width.
Pelvic Loading Area (PLA) Inserts Options
The PLA (Pelvic Loading Area) insert is available in four options: Factory Filled JAY Flow™ fluid, Field Variable JAY Flow™ fluid, Air Single ROHO® DRY FLOTATION® Technology, and Air Dual ROHO® DRY FLOTATION® Technology. These four inserts provide two important benefits: hydrostatic loading (even distribution of load) and adjustability (in-field adjustment or custom factory adjustment) to ensure the best possible immersion, pressure distribution, and stability.
New Cover Technologies
The J3 cushion features three cover options; stretch, microclimatic or incontinent-resistant. All 3 covers feature an advance patent-pending pleating design to prevent compromising the J3's pressure relieving properties. In addition, they also feature an underlying reticulated foam layer to provide comfort and wick away heat and moisture.
Custom and Standard Modifications
Just like the rest of the JAY Seating product line, the J3 cushion is available with a multitude of modification options, 20 of which are available at no charge. If you need an overfill, underfill, leg length cut, notch for posts, angle wedge, or a variety of other mods, it's as simple as a call to customer service!
The J3 is available with a wide range of positioning options to help the user maintain appropriate postural stability. Optional lateral and medial thigh supports as well as lateral pelvic supports are affixed securely to the cushion base with PSA tape.
Building a J3 Cushion SMART Part # follows 6 easy steps: selecting height, width/depth, PLA size, fluid insert type, cover type and optional positioning components. See the Quick J3 Cushion Reference Guide or order form for a step-by-step walk through and more detailed information.
The J3 can be ordered and shipped complete with a variety of Quickie manual and power chairs. This is a complete clinical solution when combined with a J3 Back!
The patent-pending new Pleating Geometry design of the fluid pads helps to increase immersion and envelopment. Pleats create greater surface area on the top of the pad and pleats expand to accommodate shapes, while simultaneously preventing the fluid from moving out of place.
The new J3 Cushion is an excellent solution for today's bariatric population with its expanded 500 lbs weight capacity available in all cushion configurations.
