The JAY® Care wheelchair back was designed to accommodate a client with a fixed kyphotic thoracic spine by providing built-in lateral support, 39° of angle adjustability, and a customizable foam insert in a contoured shell. Care’s soft foam insert is segmented, making it easy to cut away and modify to accommodate unique needs and shapes. This ability to customize reduces peak pressures and increases comfort, helping to prevent skin breakdown, specifically along the spine.
The Care features a contoured shell with 4″ of built-in lateral support to accommodate and help prevent further progression of spinal asymmetries. With 39° of angle adjustability, the Care’s four-point mounting hardware increases visual orientation and improves the digestion and respiratory function of individuals with fixed kyphotic postures.
