The Jay Back is a foam and gel back support cushion designed to protect against scoliosis, kyphosis, instability, back pain, and skin breakdown. The cushion consists of an impact resistant ABS plastic shell with a middle layer of molded, contoured foam, and a Flolite spinal insert to prevent pressure problems on the spine. Flolite is a gel-like liquid that will conform to the user's body, but resists returning to its original position to prevent pressure on bony prominences. The water-resistant foam layer can be Velcro-detached from the shell for washing or for making custom cutouts to accommodate minor deformities. The back height of the shell is adjustable from 15 to 22 inches. The cushion has lateral trunk supports that attach under the cover with Velcro. These supports can be adjusted up or down, in or out, to support against side to side leaning and curvature of the spine. An adjustable lumbar suppor moves up or down behind the Flolite spinal insert to help restore lumbar curve and to reduce back pain by increasing sitting stability. All components are housed in a removable, washable AirExchange cover lined with 97 percent air foam to provide air circulation and relieve sweating. COMPATIBILITY: The Jay Back will fit virtually any detachable arm wheelchairs; the cushion can be used with the Jay, Jay Active, or Combi (see separate entries); and the Jay Back is compatible with the Otto Bock head rests (see separate entry). SIZES: Models are available to fit wheelchairs with widths of 9 to 20 inches. Lateral supports come in Regular, Large, and Extra Large.
