The Zip cushion's dual-layered foam base combines structural support and comfort. Typically, a child using an 8" wide cushion may require a slightly softer foam than a child using a 14" wide cushion. For this reason, the firmness of the Zip's foam base increases with the cushion width.
When it comes to pediatric mobility, every pound holds more weight. Because of their low body weights, children's independence is greatly impacted with every added pound. The last thing you want adding weight to a pediatric mobility system is the cushion! That's why the JAY engineers designed the Zip to weigh as little as 1.2 pounds!
The Zip's inner cover is water-resistant and easy to wipe off and clean, while its Aqua-guard zipper and anti-wicking thread protect the foam base from fluids. The machine-washable, stretch outer cover utilizes naturally anti-microbial, silver-impregnated X-static® fiber. Since kids love to make messes, we send an extra outer cover with every Zip cushion!
Through the JAY Your Way custom modification program, the Zip cushion can be ordered with colored outer cover sidebands to complement a child's wheelchair at no additional cost. Choose from blue, red, toxic green, purple, and pink!
