Where is the ball?

Our Head Support Hardware does not include the typical ball used to connect to the occipital pad. Instead, we use an adapter which attaches directly to the pad. This adapter allows for full adjustment in multiple planes, but holds position much better than a round ball.

Which dynamic head support hardware should I recommend?

The Single Axis dynamic head support hardware provides approximately 8 degrees of movement posteriorly. The resistance can be changed using different elastomers.

The Multi Axis dynamic headrest provides movement posteriorly and laterally, allowing this to respond to rotational movement. If the client does not always extend directly in midline, but has some rotation to their movement, the multi axis dynamic headrest is indicated.
