Spex Standard Lateral Head Support

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

The Standard Lateral Head Support, has been designed to meet moderate head positioning needs. It comprises a posterior head pad with suboccipital support to promote head positioning while the head rotates.  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.

Previously known as the Comfi Standard/Extended Head Support.

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