Spex has success in modular creativity! All items are interchangeable within our vast range. Laterals and headrests and hardware etc. can be added or removed at any time.
Modular flexibility enables a "Mix & Match" of seating supports cross-selected from the entire seating range. You can put a hip guide up by your shoulder or a pommel where the headrest is supposed to go!
In fact, we have often seen configurations used by therapists that we haven't thought of ourselves: eg curved swing-away laterals as shoulder retractors.
We designed Spex to be operated by everyone, not just technicians.
More and more, therapists are finding that they can do the fitting and adjustment and are becoming quicker than the reps because they are doing it so often.
We are advocating saving professional therapist time through providing the essential 'tools' the therapist requires to complete postural results quicker. Spex means that your clients' wheelchairs can be equipped with seating in less time, adjusted in less time, to gets results in less time.
Total care for the client
Everything has been fully thought-through to work properly using our best innovation. Spex offers you the full range of seating from backrests and cushions through to seating parts and accessories.
Parts are easily ordered at any time.
Comfort and pressure care
It mostly starts with the raw materials. Spex has been involved with development to provide exceptional comfort.
For example: We are being told by therapists that they are using the Spex backrest just because it is more comfortable than other backrests available.
Because we know that not everything can be plucked off a shelf and installed on your clients' wheelchair, we offer a full custom service where virtually any Spex item can be modified to suit your clients' needs. We run a just-in-time manufacturing system so brackets and components are stocked and anything custom is simply added.
Spex is a market leader in wheelchair seating sustainability & reissuability. Spex products are designed and built to last, and we support the environmental principles of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The metals can be recycled and used again.
More than that, we are leaders in "reissuability". With Spex products, we have impressed the funding bodies with our efforts in providing effective reissuing.
Breathability and Airflow
The need for ventilation is an important feature for anyone who spends any length of time sitting particularly in hot, humid climates. Spex Seating offers enhanced airflow including specialised "wick-able" materials combined to reduce risk regarding skin conditions etc. We can upgrade with Supracor inserts for individual situations.
Spex can be scripted to have growth adjustment for the growing child. Even with our backrests and seat bases, they have up to 4" (10cm) of width adjustment. Eg: 16" back will go onto a 20" chair.
