Sunrise Medical Introduces a Breakthrough in Comfort - New JAY J3 HV Wheelchair Back


FRESNO, Calif., April 24, 2017 — Today, Sunrise Medical is redefining wheelchair back technology with the introduction of the new JAY J3 HV wheelchair back. This is a wheelchair back which can adjust to an individual's microclimate. 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. This new product is an easy system to use with a simple on/off switch to control the heat or cool setting. It also comes with a rechargeable battery that provides a minimum of 8 hours of continued use. Indicator lights provide an easy way to tell if the heat (red) or cool (blue) setting is on. For added protection, there is an automatic shutoff feature to ensure the safety of the client.

"In the present day funding driven environment we wanted to provide something that would help improve someone's life, not just meet a code. The new J3 HV backrest truly will improve the way you live and help you feel more comfortable doing it," said Jeff Rogers, Sr. Product Manager at Sunrise Medical.

JAY J3 wheelchair backs are designed with contoured back shells, soft foam, and adjustable components for stability and fatigue reduction. A microclimatic cover features a wicking material and a layer of 3DX space fabric to promote airflow and dissipate heat and moisture, keeping the user clean and dry. The Lycra top surface provides a smooth, soft sitting surface that resists snagging and catching on clothing. The HV technology is seamlessly incorporated into this proven wheelchair back.

The new JAY J3 HV wheelchair back will set the standard in comfort for users. For images and additional information, please visit the JAY J3 HV back product page.
