The contouring of the cushioning is essential to apply intimate surface contact to areas of the body that are contoured. The padded moulding structure is comprised of a three-layered Spex cube contouring substrate. The best result is achieved by creating areas of greater or lesser support with the adjustment of the multiple-layered padded pocket cells. There are two different densities of Spex cube cells in order to provide stability and comfort where it is needed. The SuperShape can adapt to changing needs and provide enough stability for complex and asymmetric postures.

Create shapes, contours and comfort.
