The JAY J3 wheelchair backrest product line is now available in more than 40 Posterior Deep (PD) sizes, according to an announcement from Fresno-Calif-based Sunrise Medical, in a news release.

Introduced in 2007, the JAY J3 backrest uses anthropometric data – or measurements of the size and proportions of the human body – to perfect backrest contours, shapes, and heights for clients’ sizes, lifestyles, and levels of injury. HCPCS coded E2620, the JAY J3 PD Back features dual layer foam, J3 Back’s quick-release hardware, and numerous modification options.

The dual layer, multi-density foam assists in enhancing durability and client comfort. The layered 3DX Spacer Fabric and Lycra stretch cover helps promote airflow and wicks moisture, keeping clients cool and dry, according to the company.

In addition, the JAY J3 Back is available in five contour shapes and four support heights. The J3 PD’s 6-inch deep contour depth provides midline postural support and positioning, while the curved 7-inch tall built-in contoured laterals are designed for thoracic stability.

With this product line expansion, heights now range from 8 inches to 24 inches and widths from 12 inches to 20 inches. Through the JAY Your Way program, clients can express their individual style and choose from a variety of multicolored shells and covers, add embroidery or a military service patch.

“The J3 PD Backrest has been a game changer since it’s successful 2016 introduction. We are excited to now offer the popular PD contour across a broader range of widths and heights to better serve our customers and their specific individual needs,” says Barbara Bowden, associate product manager, seating, in the release.
