Available in three widths, 7”, 10” and 14”, the new headrest pads feature a dual layer foam for exceptional comfort. The foam is covered in waterproof stretch fabric that is cut for a clean, tailored look. The sides of the headrest pads can be shaped for lateral support, and a series of holes along the outer back edge provide attachment points for future headrest controls and supports.

Positioning the headrest pad is easy with the new modular link hardware. The order, number and orientation is completely customizable to achieve just the right position. All adjustments can be made using the on-board tool in the backrest. Further adjustability is provided by the backrest receiver, which not only holds the headrest at a number of settable heights, but can be flipped to increase height range.

In addition to exceptional comfort and adjustability, the new modular link hardware is strong. Aluminum keys run the length of each link and interlock with those of the next link to maximize surface contact and ensure joint stability. The keys are contained within a molded High Density Polyethylene Shell that is ultrasonically welded along the seams. The result is a strong, though lightweight, headrest mounting system. Available on all Corpus, Corpus 3G, Corpus HD and Corpus VS configurations.

Provide trunk stability and balance by supporting the natural curves of the spine
Enhance the cushion in promoting pelvic stability and pressure redistribution to minimize peak pressures
Decrease the likelihood of/or progression of postural abnormalities
Decrease pain and increase sitting tolerance
Promote optimal function, safety, and independence by increasing the connection and responsiveness of the manual wheelchair
