Arm Supports

Spex Fixed-Angle Arm Supports provide functional forearm and upper extremity support, and whilst the angle remains fixed, the height of the arm support can be adjusted to ensure the user has the precise support they require.

Like all Spex systems, the Fixed-Angle Arm Support has a modular approach, creating flexibility and takes into consideration the individual and unique needs of different clients. Available in either Quick-Release or Swing-Down, the Spex arm support system ensures that the user has easy access in and out of the chair for transfers.

Spex is designed to mount on almost any chair and seating system, and the arm support systems are no different! The Fixed-Angle Arm Supports are available with either a Seat Base Mount to mount directly to the seat base of the wheelchair, or with a Rail Mount to attach directly to the chair’s seat rail.

Couple your arm support with a Spex Lateral Thigh Support! We offer Arm and Thigh Support Combos where the arm and thigh support share the same mounting mechanism for a sleek and tidy “all-in-one” solution. These are available in all the same mechanism options (Quick-Release or Swing-Down) and mounting hardware (Seat Base or Seat Rail mounts).
