Axial Medial
Thigh Support

The Spex Medial Thigh Support block is a wedge shape that can be attached to the front of the wheelchair seat.

It should be used to keep the user’s legs in the correct position to maintain a neutral pelvis. It doesn’t just swing-down, it can then pull off the mount to allow an unobstructed transfer.

Provides a comfortable yet firm knee and medial thigh support through a soft padding and removable washable cover.

  • Should be used with clients who experience a variety of movement disorders, fluctuating muscle tone, spasticity or contractures
  • Assists to align the heads of the femurs with the acetabulum providing symmetrical hip abduction for proper posture
  • Abduction allows equal weight bearing through both ischial turberosities and thighs, thus permitting better pressure distribution
  • Provides a wider, more stable support base for the upper body while limiting contractures and deformities that could interfere with function
  • In hip dysplasia cases, luxation or dislocation; provides comfort & reduces pain
  • Not to be used as a way to prevent or limit forward sliding. Should be installed clear of the groin area
  • Depth adjustable convenience combined with flip down hardware
  • Easy access release hardware which can be mounted to a seat pan
  • Huge height range for high profile cushions
  • 3 sizes available
