Wheelchair Headrest Adapter

$595.00 $339.00

This is a special clinical mounting headrest adapter that provides solutions for those who are looking to attach wheelchair headrests to a cloth back chair. Without the adapter, you would need a new chair, however, this attaches to the canes for a stable mount that can permit the use of special headrests like the Savant.

Standard wheelchairs with cloth or vinyl backrests are the most economical, however, options for headrest mounting are very limited. For comfort as well as conditions like head drop syndrome, the clinical mounting headrest adapter will permit the use of wheelchair headrests by allowing headrest hardware to mount directly to the adapter.

Wheelchair Headrest Adapter Allows Headrest Mounting To Standard/Regular Soft Back Wheelchairs

This is a special clinical mounting headrest adapter that provides solutions for those who are looking to attach wheelchair headrests to a cloth back chair. Without the adapter, you would need a new chair, however, this attaches to the canes of the chair for a stable mount that can permit the use of special headrests like the Savant.

The wheelchair headrest adapter is not mounted to the handlebars; this type of mount is not very stable and interferes with mobility. Use of the cane mounted adapter increases stability, decreases interference with mobility positioning, and is easy to use with the flip lock handles for removal.

Standard wheelchairs with cloth or vinyl backrests are the most economical, however, options for headrest mounting are very limited. For comfort as well as conditions like head drop syndrome, the clinical mounting headrest adapter will permit the use of wheelchair headrests by allowing headrest hardware to mount directly to the adapter.

Without the adapter your only options would be; a handlebar mount, which is not desirable for reasons mentioned above (stability & mobility issues), to get a replacement back for the chair that would accept a universal plate, which can be very expensive, or to purchase a new chair that accepts hardware – the most expensive option.
