Seating & Positioning / Spex Seating / Spex Cushions / JAY Spex Standard Contour Cushion

Spex Standard Contour Cushion

Designed for optimum pelvic foundation.

The Spex cushion is designed to create the optimum pelvic foundation for the wheelchair user. Well established and preferred by many professionals for its capacity to adjust on-the-spot in solving for both symmetrical and asymmetrical sitting postures. Spex cushion technology provides the key solution to positioning and levelling the pelvis correctly and effectively by strategic placement in the adjustable base cell system to further contour the cushion for correction or control.

The technology of the construction produces a broad distribution pattern with low peak pressures, and pressure analysis data suggest that the pressure distribution characteristics of the Spex cushion makes it an excellent candidate for people that are at risk of skin ulcers. Further pressure management and pressure redistribution is adjusted by simply rearranging and modifying the cells at any time.

Comes with washable spacer fabric cover and incontinent cover.

Strategic Positioning Base

Strategic Positioning Base

With the proven in-built adjustable base system, the Spex cushion can be configured to solve many different pelvis needs ranging from basic cushion stability up to difficult pelvic situations.

Modifications by strategic placement in the adjustable base cell system further contour the cushion for correction, control, balance, stability, pressure redistribution and many other needs.

With adjustment being done at the base of the cushion, the upper foam layers are unaffected and don’t cause bottoming-out or further pressure risks.

Configurations can be easily made so pressure is redistributed from the ischial tuberosities and coccyx onto the trochanters and femurs for enhanced load bearing and stability.

With treating each leg independently via the cells it is easy to obtain optimum positioning and levelling the pelvis correctly and effectively, and this process can be carried out without limit by simply rearranging and modifying the cells at any time for changing postural needs.

Pressure Rating & Characteristics

Pressure Rating & Characteristics

Our Spex cushions have been laboratory tested in USA for pressure characteristics. Please note that this was tested using a standard Spex cushion without any contouring done to the positioning base.

Data demonstrated that pressure readings across all five zones (L/R Trochanter, L/R Ischial Tuberosity and Sacrum) show smooth transitions without significant peaks in pressure for both test cushions. The readings indicate good pressure distribution over the entire sitting surface.
