Matrix Custom Back Support (E2617)
- The unique Matrix Adjustable Micro-Modular Support (AMMS) inner shell enables unparalleled options for shape adjustability along with many more attributes than a bullet point will allow.
- Auxetic foam has more skin protection properties than any other foam because it doesn’t behave like other foam.
- The Matrix Radian 360 mounting hardware is infinitely adjustable on all planes enabling easy and accurate orientation in even the most challenging cases.
Cover and Outer shell
Covers are made of two materials: Spacer fabric for the primary contact surface and a smooth Dartex style material with 3mm of silver impregnated foam for the surround. The spacer fabric is very breathable decreasing heat and moisture retention. While soft, the spacer fabric helps keep the client positioned. The surround material is very soft and slippery reducing the possibility of upper extremity skin irritation.
The rigid outer shell is made of Kydex instead of the typical ABS plastic. Kydex is stronger making it a superior material for mounting hardware, head rest interfaces and accessories. It also shapes better than ABS enabling a more accurate profile and thicker stronger material around complex shapes.
Inner Shell and Auxetic Foam
The unique Matrix Adjustable Micro-Modular Support (AMMS) inner shell enables unparalleled options for shape adjustability during or after delivery. Its see-through and feel-through design enables easy confirmation by the therapist or evaluator of appropriate support of the client in all areas. This design also achieves unparalleled airflow combating heat and moisture retention.
Matrix has an auxetic foam layer. Laying between the cover and inner shell, auxetic foam has skin protection properties far beyond any other type of foam. Auxetic foam does not deflect like normal foam ensuring that the user does not bottom out, has incredible shear protection and is soft to the touch yet maintains the form necessary to maintain positioning. An incredible best of both worlds. Its molecular structure it will not wear or degrade, even after years of constant use.
