Spex Mantaray Back Support

The Spex Mantaray backrest offers a solid shell with unique built-in lateral wings that are width, height and angle adjustable to give excellent lateral stability. An upholstery wrap offers comfort and secure spine and trunk support.

The Spex Mantaray backrest is well suited for the individual who requires:
  • A solid back support to support minimal deformities or stability needs
  • Minimal to moderate postural support
  • Improved trunk/pelvic positioning whilst maintaining propelling efficiency
  • Has mild-moderate torso asymmetries
  • Greater functionality as there is minimal hardware between the client and the lateral supports
