Spex Extended Lateral Head Support

One-piece lateral head support solution for complex head positioning needs.

The Extended Lateral Head Support, has been designed to meet complex head positioning needs specifically for those with limited head control. It comprises a posterior head pad with extended support along the suboccipital area to promote head positioning while the head rotates. The lateral section extends forwards to support clients with low tone and keep the head contained within the head support. A clever ear cut-out detail stays comfortable when resting at different positions on the pad.

Spex Head Support pads are constructed from an internal aluminium shell covered by an injection moulded polyurethane foam to ensure smooth and comfortable support surface. A soft memory foam overlay allows for pressure reduction even for clients with high tone patterns. The family of head support shapes have been geometrically and biomechanically designed to give greater support and stability for head positioning for wheelchair users. Along with the versatile Spex Stylo hardware, it’s possible to accommodate an extensive range of head positioning requirements.

The Extended Lateral Support is available in Paediatric and Adult sizes and also available in Standard Lateral versions, which are 4cm shorter in lateral extension.

Previously known as the Comfi Standard/Extended Head Support.
