A head rest furthers essential therapeutic possibilities of a wheelchair. Apart from tiltable wheelchairs, a head rest can usefully stabilize the user in all active and passive chairs and with it increases their general well-being.
You can choose between light-weight head rests, standard head rests or back extensions incl. head rest.

Back extension incl. head rest
For our firm curved back plates we have developed a special patented back extension with a head rest which allows the quick switch between active and resting phases. Should the little user not be restricted by the head rest during active driving, then this can be submersed into the firm curved back plate together with the extension. However, should they switch into a relaxing phase then the seat is tilted or the angle tilted and the head can find rest in the easily activated head rest. The back extension incl. head rest possible for all models with firm curved back plate.
Please note: The back extension incl. head rest is not approved for transport in motor vehicle.
