Spex Positioning

Spex Positioning

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

The Spex system is modular and comprises a grid of foam cubes. The individual cubes can be customized “on the spot” by adding to or removing foam to meet the individual’s specific upper-body shape.

The Spex back support profile can be created based on the postural needs identified for the individual’s upper body. The system has the ability to instantly “create” greater volume or fullness in the back support where needed or to remove fullness to ensure good contact with the body contours.

By providing seating which has the ability to be adjusted, clinicians and ATPs have the ability to continue to provide an individual with comfort and postural support, while meeting the asymmetrical postural presentation.

    Custom Back

    While this may be first considered for clients who need customized seating, its features also make it a great match for active users and kids. The Custom back’s thin profile and lightweight design have little or no impact on seat depth, width or performance. Supplementary padding and reliefs can improve protection and comfort in needed areas. The infinitely adjustable FlexLoc wheelchair interface permits adjustment in every axis of movement, ensuring optimal balance and postural control. The Custom back can be modified for linear growth and weight change at a fraction of the cost of a new back.
