Jay Basic Back

Price is not the only thing that matters when it comes to buying your new Jay Basic Back, great customer service is priceless!


If you could add a rigidizing component to your wheelchair, wouldn't you? The Jay® Basic Back has done exactly so and managed to enhance the general tolerance of sitting and provide for greater performace of your wheelchair all around. The Jay Basic Back keeps its shape against all pressure and resistance. That adds an efficiency for the Jay Basic Back over sling backrest upholstery because slings have the problem of stretching out over time and taking on a curved shape. The best deal on the Jay Basic Back is here at Sportaid.


  • 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 Back is a must.
  • The JAY Basic Back is very price competitive.

Easy-to-Attach Hardware
Attaching the JAY Basic back to a chair is as simple as placing the back onto two mounting pins and rotating it into a vertical position - latching mechanisms are not required. This same hardware also features 10° of angle adjustment and 1" of width adjustment. By combining this easy mounting system with ample adjustments, we've created an ideal mix for chairs that can be folded and transported easily.
Perfect Match for Rental Chair Clientele
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.
Smart Cover and Shell Design
The contoured edges on the Basic Back's outer shell provides mild lateral stability. This feature, along with a back pocket in the cover to prevent the foam base from slipping on the shell, ensures that the basic back remains supportive and secure throughout its lifetime.
Optional Strap-Style Hardware
The JAY Basic Back features an optional strap-style hardware. The strap mounted hardware weighs next to nothing and is used when the Basic Back mounts to a chair with existing backrest upholstery. It is an excellent solution for users who simply need more support than required with standard upholstery.
