Description

Designed for the user who has moderate to severe positioning requirements

The SuperHigh contour cushion creates an optimum pelvic foundation for the user who requires extra pelvic and hip immersion. We do this using the proven Spex strategic positioning base technology. It's properties provide hip and leg envelopment as well as an ideal pressure redistribution all over the seat cushion.

Clinical

The SuperHigh contour cushion is an excellent choice for individuals who:

  • Require extra pelvic and hip immersion
  • Have muscle tone patterns that require sufficient thigh lateral control. Thigh support is higher for alignment - refer specifications table
  • If extremity support can't be maintained through the use of external thigh laterals and/or if installing thigh laterals can't be used, the SuperHigh contour cushion will provide that needed support and stabilisation
  • Have a symmetrical or asymmetrical sitting posture that requires correction or control/accommodation
  • Require pelvic comfort and pressure relief/distribution
  • Require a high degree of pelvic stability and specific contouring

Functional

  • Positioning base accommodates tight hamstrings/lack of hip flexion
  • No maintenance required
  • Strategic contouring pads offer complete customisations on-the-spot for a perfect fit for the client
  • Removable lateral rigidizers which add extra thigh support/alignment
  • Gel-foam ischial evenly distributes pressure under the pelvis and in combination with the dual-layer cover, reduces shear forces in sensitive areas
  • Coccyx channel for enhanced pressure relief (for sizes 16"+)
  • Dual layer cover reduces shear forces, and breathable air-mesh on sides of cushions counters moisture
  • Inner incontinence cover included
  • Customizable to the individual's specific requirements such as leg length discrepancies 
  • Not compatible with thigh supports or medial thigh supports
