Ride Designs

Ride Java

  • Created for users looking for greater sitting stability and improved functional performance, the Java also works to improve skin outcomes, including lower tissue distortion and lower long-term skin risk.
  • The cushion redistributes forces of pressure and shear away from high-risk areas, while applying the forces to more tolerant areas.
  • Java’s design and cover materials are made to maintain cool, dry skin to encourage potentially lower pressures and less deep-tissue distortion.
  • This enhanced sitting performance requires no regular fit-essential maintenance.
  • Java can be adjusted using Ride CAM wedges if users’ conditions change.
