CHRISTIAN'S CHALLENGE

Christian’s problem is that when he needs to look down and tilt his head forward the headrest comes away and no longer provides support. This is a problem for people who have limited lateral (sideways) muscular control. Christian’s challenge is a system that provides headrest support (including lateral support) through the degree of movement of the head and neck from upright to forward (chin on chest).

THE SOLUTION

TechNeck made a robotic wheelchair headrest for Christian that will move with his head to provide lateral support. This design can be mounted on any wheelchair and features adjustable pivot points, an on-off switch, and a quick removable mechanism. Christian can now move his head into the position he wants with reduced pain and discomfort.
