JAY Basic Back
The JAY Basic Back is JAY's answer to the growing demand for a backrest (hard shell) that increases seating tolerance and overall chair performance by adding a rigid component to the wheelchair. Unlike sling backrest upholstery, which tends to stretch out over time and take on a curved shape, the JAY Basic Back maintains its shape and provides excellent long-term postural support.
|New Hook Style
The JAY Basic Back ships with two styles of upper hooks, which can facilitate either a straight backrest or one positioned at 8 of recline. The hooks are designed to accommodate 1" of width adjustment, which is a key feature for situations where the back posts are wider than the shell of the JAY Basic Back.
|Ideal Companion for Rental Chairs
The JAY Basic Back is defined, under Medicare Guidelines, as a General Use Back (HCPCS Code: E2611). The combination of a hard-shell back combined with a General Use Cushion (such as the JAY Basic cushion) is recognized by clinicians as offering superior postural support. For this reason, the JAY Basic Back makes a perfect companion for the Breezy Ultra 4 (K0004) wheelchair and the JAY Basic Cushion.
|Optional Easy Locking Clamp-Style Hardware
The JAY Basic Back features a selection of two separate hardware packages: The standard strap-style hardware that is currently used for the J2 and J2 Deep Contour Backrests. Or the clamp-style hardware that is specifically designed for the JAY Basic Back. The clamps make back post attachment and setup quick and easy. The sliding lock-pins make removing the back from the chair a snap.
|Fits Multiple Size Backrest Tubing
Both the standard hardware and the optional clamp-style hardware are designed to fit on 7/8", 1", and 1 1/8" back post tubing. This covers almost every back post diameter available in its class.
- Unlike upholstered backrests, the metal backrest shell promotes better trunk alignment and more efficient propulsion. For users who plan to spend any significant amount of time in a chair, the JAY Basic Backrest is a must.
- The clamp style hardware features the additional benefit of noise reducing rubber inserts that provide a quiet, snug fit.
