Please Note: The hardware comes as pictured. Allen Wrenches are not included, this uses a standard US measure Allen key (it’s not a proprietary OR metric size). Screws for the face back of chair are not included. Different seat backs have different depths, are made of different materials, and different seating installers generally have different preferences for the “type” and head of screw.

Double Multi-Axis Twin Flex Hardware

Twin Flex Hardware For Mounting

This is new and adds a significant measure of adjustability to the Twin. We call it the “Super Twin” and it is the most adjustable hardware for mounting the Savant/Axion or Apex. The range of adjusting allows positioning of the headrest forward of the backrest.

The same great features of the twin with 17 inches of extended flexion range for those with forward body lean.

The Twin Flex accepts a 1 inch ball.

The twins have a keyed stop collar. The piece sticking out of the bottom of the stop collar will slot into the little hole in the top of the mounting bracket. (The point being, the whole thing can be pulled out of the mounting bracket, and then dropped back in in exactly the same position and at the same height.) The twin mounts higher on the back than the standard. A certain experience/skill level would be advisable for mounting hardware installation. A standard tool kit would be assumed.

Dynamic Spring Loaded Option

Dynamic Headrest Mounting Hardware

The Twin Dynamic Hardware offers provides tone deflection and controlled horizontal movement. Force absorption protects the user, the hardware and helps to accommodate extensor tone.

The spring tension is available in firm or soft and can be changed at any time without tools. Firm is the default tension and if a softer travel is required, the softer spring can be installed.

The Dynamic feature can be turned on or off by turning the knob, providing a dynamic or rigid headrest mount. Spring travel is 22mm, just under 1 inch of horizontal tone deflection through the headrest pad.

Flip Down Option

Twin Flip Mounting Hardware

The Twin Flip easily and quickly moves the headrest out of the way while staying attached to the wheelchair eliminating misplacement.

An excellent solution for lift transfers.

The spring loaded locking collar is clearly labeled and easily slides to allow the headrest to move rearward.

When locked, the vertical post is rigid with no wiggle.
