Different types of Wheelchair Headrests

The Whitmyer head positioning range offers solutions from the most basic to complex of needs. Here are some of our highlights.

PLUSH Wheelchair Headrest Systems utilise dual density foam layers on a contoured, curved panel. These single pad headrests are easily adjustable and accommodate changes or inconsistencies in body and head positioning. The unique “cupping” shape provides posterior support with a high degree of comfort and safety. This basic headrest is ideal for tilt/recline, and has the ability to add lateral support, anterior support, or switches as client’s needs change.

Available in 4 pad sizes, the Contoured Cradle Wheelchair Head Supports are generically designed to cradle the occupant and provide lateral cervical support.  This wheelchair headrest solution supplies a high degree of comfort and positioning in a simple-to-adjust head support.

The Heads Up wheelchair neck support is an innovative device designed to maximise clients’ interaction with their environment by providing anterior, posterior and lateral support of the head and neck. It features swing-out, adjustable arms to easily accommodate client transfers and varying client presentations.

S.O.F.T Dual Sub-Occipital three pad wheelchair Head Supports solve the most challenging head positioning issues. This patented device combines two width and rotationally adjustable sub-occipital pads with an adjustable occipital pad for independent anterior/posterior movement. the added adjustability of the individual suboccipital pads allows adjustment to asymmetrical postures and deformities. Attaching lateral facial pads, switches, and/or anterior supports adds to this system’s versatility.
