Each year, up to 120,000 spinal cord injury (SCI) patients who use a wheelchair in the United States are diagnosed with a pressure injury1. In fact, pressure injuries are so prevalent in the complex rehab technology space that approximately 95% of SCI patients will develop a pressure injury over their lifetime1. JAY Clinical Seating's top priority is to mitigate risk factors attributable to seating that leads to these debilitating and costly injuries.
