Rotation-in-Space or Tilt-in-Space
Wheelchair enhancements allow for increased capacity
Sunrise Medical is pleased to announce enhancements to the adult Quickie and the pediatric Zippie IRISTM tilt-in-space wheelchair lines. Rotation-in-Space or Tilt-in-Space technology helps to facilitate respiratory function, feeding, pressure relief and visual alignment for the wheelchair user. Already known for its quality and durability, the Quickie IRIS has now increased the weight capacity on the standard chair to 300 pounds and 400 pounds on the heavy duty option. Additionally, an option now available for the Quickie IRIS is the JAY lower extremity support, which utilizes the same latch mechanism as the hangers, making adjustments easier without the need of additional hardware.
JAY J3 HV
Wheelchair back enhanced with climate adjustment technology
Sunrise Medical has introduced the new JAY J3 HV wheelchair back. Designed with feedback from customers and leveraging proven climate adjustment technology from the automotive industry, this new product gives the user superior clinical seating and exceptional comfort. With the flip of a switch the user can warm up or cool down for a better experience in all settings. Internal thermal technology which includes evaporative cooling to dissipate moisture and pull it away from the body as well as thermal regulation to adjust to heat or cold is designed into several sizes of the industry leading JAY J3 wheelchair back. It also comes with a rechargeable battery that provides a minimum of 8 hours of continued use.
Lightweight custom back support
The innovative design of the OBSS Ortho-Shape lightweight custom back support incorporates body alignment, pressure distribution, and directional forces for comfortable postural control. The padding on the back and around the edges relieves pressure points and improves user comfort, and the Evolight material helps keep skin dry and cool and reduces skin breakdown. The intelligent ergonomic mounting system provides six inches of freedom allowing users or caregivers to make adjustments in all three planes — tip anterior/posterior, rotate left/right, and tilt left/right — for maximum balance and postural control. A digital scan is all that is needed to start the process of creating the custom contoured back before the shape is reproduced using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM production processes and high-tech materials.
