FRESNO, Calif., November 19, 2019 - Today, Sunrise Medical announced the launch of the JAY® Syncra™ Seating System, a cohesive and attractive seating system intentionally designed for tilt and recline. Available exclusively on the SEDEO® PRO™ seat frame, Syncra is a comprehensive seating system engineered so that the cushion and the back work in tandem to minimize movement and help avoid body displacement.
The combination of the Syncra's scalloped back shell and the cushions' lowered pelvic wall and deeper femoral troughs assist in keeping the body in optimal position during the recline motion. "Many times therapists have to make sacrifices when adapting aftermarket seating to powered seat frames, but with JAY Syncra it eliminates the guesswork and helps ensure a proper fit," said Jeff Rogers, Director of Power Product Management.
To complement this new product offering, there are a variety of positioning accessories available to help support and stabilize the client in their chair such as new removable JAY Lateral Thigh Supports. Both the Syncra Cushion and Syncra Back are available in three upholstery options: Syncra Premium Leatherette, Syncra Stretch, and Syncra 3DX Microclimatic.
The Syncra Cushion is available in multiple interchangeable well options including the JAY Fluid with Cryo™ Technology or Visco Foam to accommodate changing clinical needs. The industry-favorite JAY Fluid is now enhanced with the revolutionary, patent-pending Cryo Technology. Research has shown that several factors increase the risk of a pressure injury, including four risk elements correlated to wheelchair seating: pressure, shear, temperature, and moisture. The CryoFluid™ insert addresses these risk factors and actively cools the skin for up to eight hours while evenly distributing pressure, reducing shear, and lowering the risk of moisture.
With these new additions to the Sunrise Medical portfolio, clinicians have more options to help find that optimal fit for their clients' positioning, comfort, and lifestyle needs.
