The JAY Zip wheelchair cushion is a comfortable, clinically effective skin protection and positioning cushion specially designed for kids! The outer cover is made with silver-impregnated X-static material that naturally inhibits bacterial growth, and better yet, the Zip comes standard with two covers.
X-static silver fiber fabric is made with pure silver, a naturally occurring element. There are no chemicals and there is no fear of toxicity for the consumer.
The JAY Zip's inner cover features specially coated anti-wicking seam thread to prevent wicking. This is the same type of thread used by the US Military for combat clothing.
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. Many competitive moisture resistant inner covers do not feature this type of flexibility. Without this ability to stretch, there is a the potential for surface-tension pressure build-up under the user's ischial tuberosities.
X-static Silver Fiber Fabric
Polyurethane Coated Cover Made w/ Lycra
Dual Layered Contoured Foam Base
By: Jay / Sunrise Medical Item Number: JZ Unit of Measure: Ea
A dual layered contoured foam base, and a soft, stretchable outer cover create a very comfortable ride for kids. The reticulated foam in the outer cover also promotes air movement to prevent heat and moisture build-up.
Because we know that kids will be kids, and will likely spill, we've included two machine washable outer covers with every cushion. The inner cover has a moisture resistant urethane coating that's easy to wipe and features an Aquaguard zipper and anti-wicking seam thread to help prevent moisture from reaching the foam.
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 bacterial growth. This same material is also used in bandages, hosiery, and footwear to name a few.
Designed for Kids
By matching foam firmness to average pediatric sizes for each cushion width, the JAY Zip cushion maximizes individual comfort - it's not a simple downsized adult cushion. Standard sizes available range from 8"x 8" to 16"x 18" and weigh as low as 1.5 lbs - a perfect complement to the Zippie Zone Ultralight rigid chair.
