Wheelchairs are essentially designed to assist people with walking difficulties to move around. Good lateral support ensures ease of use and prevention of further injury to the body’s support structures. The wheelchair should therefore possess all the right features to enable effective use. The most vital part that supports the user is the back of the wheelchair. Apart from the mobility of the chair, all efforts should be directed to ensure this section is in its best possible condition. Especially for extended periods of wheelchair use, the back should be very supportive and comfortable. A product of Sunrise Medical, the Jay 3 wheelchair back offers a range of interesting features which make it superior in several ways.
The Jay 3 wheelchair back is designed in a number of shapes and sizes to suit all body types. In addition, the posture align conforming system ensures individual adjustment to specific back positions while maintaining the correct spine posture. The different heights of the back ensure support for various body sizes and injury types. This makes ideal for spine injury users. It has a comprehensive combination of hardware adjustment features that enhance various positioning capabilities. The five different contour shapes ensure steady lateral thoracic and pelvic support for various activities.
With its versatile back cane tubing ranging from 1 1/8″ to 3/4″, it can fit into almost any wheelchair. The wicking material and the 3DX space fabric ensures proper aeration which keeps the user’s back free from moisture and bad odors. The smooth outer lining provides a soothing sitting area for prolonged use.
Jay 3 wheelchair back is lightweight (weighing up to about 35 ounces), easy to install and adjust. Further, Jay 3 offers additional options like the Carbon Fiber Shell back that provides ultimate support and comfort for resting of the back. One can also opt to add an extra J3 inner cover that gives extra protection from moisture build up.
