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.
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.
Contoured Foam Base with Lateral Pelvic Support
The Union's foam base is moderately contoured to encourage proper positioning of the pelvis and thighs. 1" lateral pelvic wedges offer superior lateral stability and alignment of the pelvis for more involved positioning needs.
Visco Memory Foam Top Layers
The Union features a top layer of soft, Visco memory foam, with an extra layer covering the Pelvic Loading Area. This combination creates the ultimate sitting surface that distributes weight for pressure reduction and maximum comfort.
JAY Flow Fluid Insert
The JAY Flow fluid insert that lies beneath the Visco foam conforms to each individual's unique contours for even pressure distribution beneath the pelvis and a reduced risk of skin breakdown.
Innovative, Dual-Cover System
For convenience and protection, the Union features a dual-cover system. The inner cover is water-resistant and easy to wipe off and clean, while its Aqua-guard zipper and anti-wicking thread protect the foam base from fluids. The machine-washable, stretch outer cover reduces surface tension and utilizes naturally anti-microbial, silver-impregnated X-static fiber. A layer of 3DX spacer fabric promotes airflow and dissipates heat and moisture for additional skin protection.
