JAY Ion Cushion

Comfort, convenience and anti-microbial are three words that describe everything great about the JAY Ion cushion. The Ion delivers all three of these features using the latest cushion technology: Aqua-guard zipper, anti-wicking seam thread, silver impregnated X-Static® anti-microbial stretch fabric, and reticulated foam. On the surface, it looks like a simple skin protection cushion. Under the hood, it's a high-tech machine.
Super soft foam on the top, structural foam imbedded on the bottom sides. Together they balance comfort with support. Add in a layer of reticulated foam in the cover, and the Ion takes on the additional benefit of being able to absorb both heat and moisture.
The Ion's thin fabric weave makes washing and drying the outer cover a snap. The inner water-resistant cover can be easily wiped off in seconds. When moisture strikes, cleanup is quick and easy.
The comfortable outer cover offers another benefit: it's antimicrobial. X-static® fabric is impregnated with silver. Studies show silver actually inhibits bacterial growth, which is one reason why it is frequently found in bandages, hosiery, and footwear to name a few.
Low Shear
To maximize immersion, reduce shear and help properly redistribute body weight, the Ion cover is designed with a stretchable low-shear cover material. This is important because reducing shear is a key factor in maintaining user tissue integrity.
The JAY Ion's inner cover features specially coated anti-wicking seam thread to prevent moisture from wicking through the seam holes. This same type of thread meets US Military specifications.
The inner cover also features specially coated Aqua-guard zipper designed to repel moisture. Its zipper uses a reverse coil to lock the fluid resistant coating sections together. Result: the inner foam stays dry and odor free.
The inner moisture-resistant polyurethane-coated cover is made with Lycra®. This remarkable material allows the cover to easily stretch and conform to the individual's shape. Without the ability to stretch, there is always the potential for surface-tension pressure to develop under the user's ischial tuberosities, which can increase the potential of a tissue breakdown.
Because the inner foam is not the only place odors are a problem, the Ion's outer X-static® cover is impregnated with silver. Silver helps eliminate bacteria and also binds with ammonia and denatured proteins to accelerate the odor reduction process.
X-static® silver impregnated fiber fabric is made with pure silver, a naturally occurring element.
The firmness of each JAY Ion cushion is determined by the user's width. It makes little sense for a lightweight user to sit on a stiff cushion, or a heavy user to sit on a overly soft cushion. For this reason, narrow JAY Ion cushions are less firm, and wide JAY Ion cushions are more firm.
