Spex Classic Back Support
Easily solve upper torso needs for most wheelchair users with the Spex Classic Back Support. The Classic Back Support incorporates the popular Spex contouring cube system to allow on-the-spot customisations for torso comfort and asymmetry needs.
- Effortless customisations
- On-the-spot adaptions for changing postural needs
- Instant results
- Cubes can be removed and added at any time
- Contouring doesn’t move or slip out of adjustment
- Additional contouring support wedges can be used to further enhance the degree of contouring.
The Classic Back Support, with its rectangle shape, fits between the wheelchair canes, while the T Shape Classic Back Support and the Surface Classic Back Support sit in front of the wheelchair canes due to the additional shoulder and pelvic support components.

Designed for the individual who:
- Requires a comfortable back support to reduce torso pain
- Requires spinal alignment and support
- Has skin breakdown/pressure care needs
- Has bony or protruding skeletal prominences
- Have changing postural needs
- Pertains a maladaptive or asymmetric posture
|For Mild Bony Prominences||For Immersion||For Asymmetry|
Without even adjusting the cube system, the Spex back support has slight contouring and integrates a comfortable pressure reducing foam surface layer to absorb mild bony prominences and asymmetries for uniform torso contact.
For individuals that require immersion into the back support, simply adjust the cube contouring cell system to configure for a perfect fit and shape for the user's back.
For asymmetrical or maladaptive postures, the contour can be arranged to provide the matching shape required to support the user's torso profile.

Thickness of the back support is 7 cm. The Spex Classic Back Support is designed to be contoured and this measurement only reflects the thickness without any of this contouring. Therefore the back support thickness will likely be less than 7cm in some sections and more in others.
