SuperShape Back Support

Wheelchair Back Support with Extreme Contouring capabilities

Supershape® provides an extra supportive wheelchair back solution with Shape Technology for contouring to provide postural integrity, pressure relief and comfort. Successfully meets individual trunk shapes of users with complex postural needs. SuperShape® is a seating system that can be fitted and changed anywhere and at any time.

CLINICAL:

Designed for the individual who:
  • Has complex postural needs
  • Has significant spinal or trunk asymmetries
  • Has protruding skeletal prominences
  • Risks skin breakdown and has pressure care requirements
  • Requires greater immersion into back support for stability and comfort
  • Requires torso pain reduction

Contouring of the cushioning is essential to apply intimate surface contact to areas of the body which are contoured. The padded moulding structure is comprised of a three-layered Spex cube contouring substrate. The best result is achieved by creating areas of greater or lesser support with the adjustment of the multiple layered padded pocket cells. We have developed 2 different densities of Spex cube cells in order to provide stability and comfort where it is needed.

Create shapes, contours and comfort.
