The SURFACE back support is a variation of the SPEX back support.
Developed for providing wheelchair users with a broader surface back support, when users require increased support at the pelvis and shoulders for ultimate care and positioning.
The unique profile of the SURFACE allows wider support, yet doesn’t restrict trunk lateral positioning or mounting to the wheelchair (see mounting details below).
- Broader support at the pelvis for enhanced positioning when the user has wider hips.
- Users that present with asymmetric misalignment within the wheelchair and there is the need for the back support to control the positioning.
- Allows potential growth allowance if the user will transition into a wider chair in the future.
- Extra width of padding allows great contouring ability if the user has significant shape
Extra width at top of back support 3”/7cm approx. more than standard SPEX back support
Extra width at bottom of back support 3”/7cm approx. more than standard SPEX back support
Width of trunk section = same as standard SPEX back support
The SURFACE is installed in front of the wheelchair canes/handlebars, and may mean that the seat length may need to be adjusted for the user. Please ensure the wheelchair has sufficient seat length before prescribing.
