Spex™ delivers an uncompromising wheelchair seating choice packed with clever advantages that provides a blend of form and function. It has been designed for the individual who requires a solid back support to assist with mild to moderate postural needs.

Spex™ is essentially made up of a powerful combination of attributes. For the clinician, it transmutes wheelchair seating to a whole new level of providing for the wheelchair user’s specific postural characteristics. Certainly, one part of the Spex™ personality is about being adjustable and adaptable. After all, it has been created to meet the needs of the widest range of personal seating requirements. The real treat with Spex™ is for the person sitting in it. Everything from the foam properties and fabric selection to the highly engineered hardware means enjoyable, comfortable sitting - no matter what the conditions are.

Key Features

  • Comfortable pressure reducing foam surface layer to absorb bony prominences.
  • The cut grid shape and configuration creates a mild suspension effect which provides comfort and increases sitting tolerance.
  • Unique foam cubes provide individual customisation - simply tear off individual cubes to make the necessary adjustments. It is ideal to assist clients who may need pressure relief in identified areas.
  • Dual-layer cover reduces shear forces.
  • Breathable Air-Flow holes combined with air-mesh fabric on back counters moisture and temperature.
