Spex XLella Bariatric Cushion Range

The bariatric population presents specific seating challenges. Positioning the pelvis in neutral may not be possible because excessive soft tissue limits the ability to control the position of the pelvis and spine, therefore, it is essential to provide adequate pressure distribution and relief, heat and moisture control, and ultimately, comfort.

Description

Purpose-designed bariatric cushion range for sizes 22" and above, with a robust design, refined shaping for larger users, and a sturdy foam construction. The range is available in Vigour and Classic styles.

The bariatric population presents specific seating challenges. Positioning the pelvis in neutral may not be possible because excessive soft tissue limits the ability to control the position of the pelvis and spine, therefore, it is essential to provide adequate pressure distribution and relief, heat and moisture control, and ultimately, comfort.

The excessive adipose tissue in the gluteal region (gluteal shelf) can also prevent bariatric users from sitting with adequate spinal support, which can contribute to back pain. Offering solutions to accommodate the unique posterior shape created by this redundant tissue is paramount.

XLella bariatric range consists of back supports and cushions, which span from 22” to 28” width, with options for custom items up to 32”. For sizes 21" and below, these are available in our regular Spex cushion range.

The XLella cushions provide an off-the-shelf solution, with integrated adjustability and adaptability for potential changing needs. These are available in two different styles to meet the individual requirements and body shapes of the user, XLella Vigour Standard Contour and the XLella Classic (available in both Standard and High Contour). Both models are transport certified and have a weight capacity of up to 160kg.
