Width Adjustment Bracket Upgrade for Quad & Single Mount Back Support Hardware

Introducing the new Width Adjustment Bracket Upgrade for Quad & Single Mount Back Support Hardware!

This new mounting component provides greater flexibility when mounting back supports that are narrower than the wheelchair. The current Spex quad and single mount hardware L-brackets slide into this simple attachment, which relocates your mounting point 30mm further in from the lateral mounting slots. This allows for a total of 60mm narrower adjustment (30mm on each side of the back support).

Lateral Pad Foam Update

The foam used in the Spex Lateral Trunk Support Pads has been updated, now featuring a softer foam than the previous version. This comes as a result of feedback we have received from several therapists. In response to this feedback, we have recreated our lateral pads to have the added comfort of slightly softer foam, but not compromising postural support. There is no change to the size or style of pads.
