SPENCO Wheelchair Pad

 

 

 

Spenco Wheelchair Pad are designs to cushion and protect arms, torso and entire sitting surface.  Each product is made with SPENCO® SILICORE® Fibers, unique siliconized hollow core shafts that don’t mat down, retain their loft and allow air flow. The silicone coating lubricates each fiber to reduce friction and shear force while preventing moisture penetration or retention.

The breathable cotton/polyester fabric is fully washable, dryable, and radiotranslucent. SPENCO® SILICORE® Padding Products pass the requirements described in 16 CFR Part 1632 Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads, (FF 4-72, Amended). Bed, Full Wheelchair and Chair Pads are also reversible with a moisture resistant nylon on the other side.

Spenco products are :-

  • Breathable Cover -Cotton/Polyester coverprovides maximumcool comfort
  • Superior Padding -Hollow core contruction prevents fibers from matting, thus dispersing pressure over a greater area, lowering vulnerability to pressure sore development.
  • Silicone Coated Fibers -Silicone coating lubricates each fiber to reduce friction and shear force while preventing moisture penetration or retention.
  • Soft-Tex Denier Nylon -is a soft, pliable material with very low shear and excellent fluid resistant properties. This combination of softness and low shear will help reduce further injury to the skin. Reversible for those times when moisture resistance is necessary.
  • Flame Retardant -Complies with requirements described in 16 CFR Part 1632 Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads, (FF 4-72, Amended).
