Jay Union Wheelchair Cushion
The JAY Union cushion combines multi-layered soft memory foam, a JAY Flow fluid pad and innovative cover technologies to provide outstanding contoured comfort, skin protection and positioning for the user.
The JAY Union wheelchair cushion is a skin protection and positioning cushion that features a high performance foam base for optimal stability, the GEL Flow Fluid Pad combined with dual layer Visco Memory Foam for dynamic contouring, and innovative cover technologies for user protection and convenience.
The JAY Union features a stable foam base and dual layer Visco memory foam to create the ideal combination of softness, support and pressure relief. The positioning of a JAY Flow fluid pad beneath the Visco foam helps the foam conform to each user’s unique pelvic contour, resulting in even pressure distribution across the sitting surface. The contoured base, lateral wedges, and Pelvic Loading Area promote lateral, anterior, and posterior stability.
The Union’s innovative cover system is designed for user convenience and protection. The 4-way stretchable inner cover is easy to wipe off for cleaning and features anti-wicking seam thread and an Aqua-guard zipper to help prevent moisture from reaching the foam. The Union’s washable outer cover utilizes X-static fiber, a silver-impregnated, antimicrobial and odor-reducing material. A layer of breathable foam sewn into the cover promotes heat and moisture dissipation. In addition to providing a clean and convenient sitting surface, this cover system also protects the foam base to maximize the life of the cushion.
The Union is an ideal choice for users requiring a high performance skin protection and positioning cushion without sacrificing comfort and convenience.

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. Antimicrobial Cover:
The comfortable outer cover offers another benefit: it's antimicrobial. The 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.
