The headband is the main feature that prevents dropped head. There are many conditions that can lead to drop head syndrome like ALS, radiation fibrosis syndromes, and other neuromuscular diseases and injuries. While the Savant provides distinct control of lateral flexion (side bending), rotation (left and right turning), and extension (backward bending), the Savant Headband controls flexion or forward bending.

The headrest can be used without the headband, but comes with one. Head drop is a common condition and when confined to a wheelchair, the addition of the band to the Savant provides unmatched control and comfort to stabilize the head from falling forward. This provides necessary control for interacting with the environment, aids with eating, breathing, and reduces pain and discomfort.

With the Axion Interface, control of rotation postural problems can be addressed, as well as allowing the user to turn his/her head up to 45 degrees on each side. The Savant & Axion a shown in the video working together. Pairing these with our matching headrest hardware configurations allow a truly amazing level of control and support.

When its time to replace the headband, you don’t need to get a new headrest, order a New Headband here.
