Concord, March 6th – Sunrise Medical© is pleased to introduce the SPEX Products as a complement to its existing JAY™ Seating line. The addition of 3 wheelchair backs: Comfi Back, Spex Back Support and SuperShape Back with the addition of 2 cushions: Spex High Profile and SuperHigh Profile, will make Jay™ Seating the choice in rehab seating more than ever.

Spex is a proven clinical seating system offering a modular approach that is adaptable in shape, angles, contours and comfort to suit many different wheelchair users.

First in Canada
Medifab manufactures the Spex line in New Zealand, and has been in business for over 25 years. The company is excited to offer the Spex Seating Products to all Canadians who can benefit from them.

Medifab is delighted to work with Sunrise Medical Canada for distribution of Medifab’s premium Spex Seating range. After in-depth evaluation of the demand landscape for seating products, it was ascertained that Medifab’s Spex Seating complemented Sunrise’s Jay Seating. The Jay product is well suited to the active user and general seating market with some overlap into the complex rehabilitation market, and Spex is well suited to CRT, with some overlap back into the active user market. As a result of this collaboration, Sunrise Medical customers in Canada can expect a wider range of product offering with precisely tailored seating solutions for their specific needs, wants and aspirations. Likewise, customers in New Zealand can expect the same from Medifab, who now offer the Jay Seating range alongside their Spex Seating for the same reasons. Medifab is passionate about ‘Shaping Better Lives’ and the range of options and channel to market has expanded through these initiatives in both countries.” Says Roger Mascull, CEO Medifab Ltd.

Adjustable modular wheelchair seating for shape changes on-the-spot, the SPEX® line is designed to accommodate changing patients’ needs. From the current posture, moving through time, we can meet the future needs of individuals by adjusting the modular seating with the same system instead of buying new products. The possibilities are endless.
