Java Cushion

 

Heat and moisture management

A vented base design, contoured top foam, and a breathable spacer mesh fabric cover (detail at right) work together to help keep skin cool and dry.

No fit-essential maintenance

The Java Cushion offers enhanced sitting performance without the need for regular fit-essential maintenance — unlike the ongoing adjustments required to maintain fluid or air volumes in competitive cushion designs.

 

Lower Pressures

Significantly lower pressures were noted in the region of the ischial tuberosities, coccyx and sacrum.

Greater sitting stability and function

While conducting the pressure mapping study, Dr. Crane (Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Hartford, Connecticut) also measured sitting stability and discovered improved sitting stability on the Java Cushion as evidenced by significantly increased functional reach both to the left and right.

30% lighter than a air cushion*

Performance need not be compromised to enjoy significantly lighter cushion weight and the possibility of enhanced mobility!

*40 x 40 cm Java Cushion weighs

1,25 kg, as compared to a 40 x 40 cm air cushion, weighing in at 1,78 kg.

Lower tissue distortion

Use of the Java Cushion resulted in nearly 50% less tissue compression at the ischial tuberosities than on an air cell cushion.

Cooler and dryer

In a pilot study comparing the cooling abilities of the Java Cushion design to an air cell cushion, Evan Call of Weber State University documented Java Cushion’s superiority in managing heat and moisture.

Adaptable
    
        
  Ride CAM wedges adjust the cushion for ischial clearance. Insert wedge(s) as needed, then trim them flush with cushion base. 

Use CAM Wedges asymmetrically to help level a flexible pelvic obliquity. Use CAM Wedges symmetrically to promote more upright posture and decrease ischial pressure.

   
   

Lower Extremity Support

Optional medial and lateral thigh support accessories are interchangeable. Use between the legs to reinforce the medial thigh contour, or on the side of the legs to create a lateral thigh support. Simply configure the accessories to achieve the desired lower extremity alignment, then trim to fit.

Soft, breathable well inserts (optional) can be used to adjust the Java Cushion for ischial loading and improved comfort.

For the best possible pressure, heat, and moisture management, Ride Designs recommends use of the Java Cushion without well inserts.

   
        

 

 

        

Postural correction and unmatched sitting stability with heat and moisture management.


Skin indicators

  • Moderate to severe skin risk*
  • Mild to severe muscular atrophy
  • Normal to absent sensation
  • Incontinence protection

Postural indicators

  • Pelvis levels relatively easily or, through cushion adjustment with available accessories, can achieve balanced seated alignment
  • Moderate to severe posterior to anterior pelvic tilt

    Strong tendency for sliding forward on cushion

 



 
The Java Cushion: Better by every measure

Two recent university-level research studies provide compelling evidence in support of Ride Designs’ off-loading philosophy.

   
 
   
Properly-inflated air cushion

Problem: columns of air lack the stability needed for postural control, and peak pressures tend to be at the high risk bony prominences, especially the ischial tuberosities (a).

 

   
Java Cushion

Solution: Safe and stable support of low risk areas and off-loading of high risk areas:

a. Ischial Tuberosities (ITs)
b. Greater Trochanters
c. Coccyx/Sacrum
d. Perineum(Groin)
