This soft, foam, wrap around collar is designed to brace the head by using support areas at the base of the occiput and jaw line. After the rest of the body is positioned, this Hensinger Head Support can help maintain mid-line head positioning. Proper head positioning should result in improved breathing, swallowing and simplified feeding. It also aids in social interaction and awareness during classroom activities. This product is contraindicated for use with a tracheotomy. Custom color covers are non-returnable. Black and custom color covers will delay shipping.
This product is non-returnable.

Our products are designed to enrich the lives of their users by permitting realization of the individual's full potential in educational, social and recreational settings.  They can be used during classroom activities, while eating and when used properly, in transportation.  Proper selection of a head support requires that an on site professional evaluation take place, including the following factors:

A.  Breathing should be improved or maintained at the present level.

B.  Swallowing/drainage should be improved or maintained at present level.

C. Field of vision/eye contact should be improved or maintained at present level.

D.  Head contact areas. Head supports maintain the head in a mid-line position.  A portion of the head/neck area that contacts the support is considered the "base area."  Determining the base area helps provide support and maximum comfort.  Improper base area selection can impeded breathing, swallowing, and blood flow; and possibly cause jaw discomfort.

E.  Body Positioning.  Head support must only be used in conjunction with proper trunk support.

F. Head control
should be evaluated from little or no head control to forward, rear or side thrusting, and/or random movements.
