JAY Union Cushion

The JAY Union Cushion provides high performance tissue protection and positioning without extensive fitting considerations. It accomplishes this via a dynamic fluid-foam layering system that maximizes the Visco™ memory foam's ability to contour to the user's shape. This technology, joined with JAY's state-of-the art cover technology, combine to create a cushion with outstanding performance characteristics that is also cool and comfortable.
Dynamic Contoured Shape
Many cushions use Visco® foam on top of a structural base-foam. In some cases, the foam matches the user's contour shape; in others, it requires positioning modifications to better match this shape. Because fluid takes on the form of any shape placed above it, it can be positioned below the surface foam layer to dynamically match the user's contour. Result: a high performance cushion that requires a minimal amount of fitting readjustment.
The Union'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.
Maximum Comfort Visco® Foam
The JAY Union features a 1 ½" thick layer of Visco memory foam in the rear seating area. Visco foam is one of the most comfortable pressure redistribution foams manufactured. Its strength lies in the ability to mold to an individual's shape without significant push-back or spring. This ability to replicate the user's shape helps distribute the user's load over a larger surface area, which in tern helps reduce peak pressures - a win for both users and prescribers.
The JAY Union'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.
Beneath the middle fluid-layer on the JAY Union cushion is a contoured structural base that includes a pelvic loading area (or well) and two lateral pelvic wedges. This construction helps promote lateral stability for the user while sitting and prevents the cushion's side walls from collapsing if a user leans to one side or the other. This is an extremely important benefit to those requiring lateral trunk stability.
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. As a 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.
Since the inner cover is not the problem area for odors, the Union'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 99.9% pure silver, a naturally occurring element.
