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.

— Lee Ann Hoffman, Clinical Educator, OT, MSc. Rehabilitation: Posture Management, Numotion
