Invacare Matrx MX1 Wheelchair Back Cushion Review (4:44 Minutes)
The Matrx MX1 is the newest addition to the Invacare Matrx Back Range, designed for users who are looking for the lightest weight option. This is for someone who needs minimal support with high activity levels. The carbon fiber back, with its patent-pending hardware system is designed to provide maximum adjustability and function while being the lightest weight and aesthetically pleasing. There are three hardware systems. All require only one tool which is included for ease of installation. The Mono Mount interfaces with the wheelchair rigidizer bar. This version is the lightest weight solution and has the advantage of providing complete clearance from the back canes. The Clamp provides a wide range of angle adjustment and can be adjusted with the user in the chair. It locks securely in place without rotating out of position. The Vertical Track allows a range of height adjustment relative to the rigidizer bar. As a note, there is very little track length in the 9-inch high backs. The only way to achieve height adjustment, relative to the chair, is to flip the mounting hardware within the track upside down. The Mono Mount comes with standard band clamps to fit 3/4 inch diameter rigidizer bars. Additionally, the 7/8-inch and the 1-inch band clamps are available for order if required. Many of the wheelchair manufacturers are aware of the specs on the MX1 with Mono Mount and are working on providing specific rigidizer bar designs for the best fit with the MX1. Contact the chair manufacturer to inquire about availability of this. Fixed dual mount installs on wheelchair back canes and requires tools for removal. It has a very low profile with no sharp edges and provides a full range of adjustments, angle adjustability up to 30 degrees, depth adjustment up to 2 inches and rotation. The hardware may be installed in front of or behind the back canes and all adjustments can be made with the client seated in the wheelchair. This hardware is appropriate for rigid chairs and includes the band clamps for 1-inch diameter back canes. 3/4-inch and 7/8-inch clamps are available for order if required. The Quick Release Dual Mount hardware is identical to the Dual Mount in terms of adjustment range but is designed with quick release tabs for ease of removal from the wheelchair for portability. The Quick Release tabs are colored green so they are easy to locate and they are designed for those with limited hand function. The Quick Release Dual Mount version includes band clamps to fit 3/4-inch, 7/8-inch and 1-inch diameter back canes and can be used on the widest range of chair configurations. The cover is made with spacer mesh fabric providing breathability. The foam pad is oversized on the back shell to ensure it covers the edges to avoid possible contact with the client’s body. A removable sacral lumbar positioning pad is provided and the backs are designed to accept an optional privacy flat. The back shell is constructed form ultra lightweight carbon fiber. The shape is identical to the lead back with 3 inches of contour depth to provide exceptional stability to the hips or trunk. The 12-inch and 16-inch high backs include scapular cutouts, which facilitate upright trunk posture by preventing the shoulders and trunk from being pushed forward. It is also allowing full scapular movement for increased upper extremity range of motion and for propulsion. Active users of the back comment on the increased function and proved sitting tolerance that the MX1 back provides. Back widths range from 14-inches to 18-inches in 1-inch increments. Back heights are 9-inch, 12-inch and 16-inches. Weight capacity is 250 pounds.
