Cryo Fluid Technology

Did you know pressure injuries affect 95% of all spinal cord injury wheelchair users within their lifetime? JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology is the FIRST and the ONLY cushion that addresses all 4 risk factors associated with pressure injuries (pressure, sheer, temperature and moisture). 

Studies have found that cooling the skin from 97° to 82° F (36° to 28° C) is estimated to be the equivalent to reducing interface pressure by 29%.

What is Cryo Technology?

JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology is a patent-pending, revolutionary wheelchair cushion material that actively cools a patient's seated skin surface for up to 8 hours* while evenly distributing pressure, reducing shear, and lowering the risk of moisture. With traditional cushions on the market today, seated skin surface temperatures can rise to 37°C (98.6°F), leading to an increased risk in skin breakdown. Lowering the skin's temperature as little as 1°C (1.8°F) can reduce the risk of skin breakdown significantly. Cryo Technology was engineered to mildly cool the skin within a therapeutic temperature range of 28°C - 35°C (82.4°F - 95°F), effectively lowering the risk of skin breakdown. The cooler skin surface temperature has the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of moisture associated with localized perspiration.

How Cryo Fluid Works

Heat leaves skin surface, cooling the skin
JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology features millions of microbeads filled with paraffin wax which melts at a set temperature. Because skin temperature is warmer than the ambient temperature of the Cryo Fluid, heat from the skin is actively transferred into the fluid. This results in a lowering of the seated skin temperature within therapeutic range.

A long-lasting effect
In addition to millions of microbeads, JAY Fluid with Cryo Technology also utilizes graphite due to its high capacity to effectively disperse heat throughout the fluid. This heat dispersion continues to pull heat from the skin until all microbeads have melted, resulting in a therapeutic cooling effect which can last up to eight hours*. The Cryo Fluid microbeads will naturally re-solidify after the fluid returns to ambient temperature.
