The Headpod is a device that assists the wearer in maintaining an upright head position. This allows for improved functional skills such as increased visual field, improved positioning for eating, and improved ability for operation of eye-gaze speech-generating devices/computers. It can also help strengthen neck muscles, decrease hypertonicity, and decrease fatigue. It fastens to a variety of headrest systems on a child’s stroller, wheelchair, or stander.
*Recommended for ages 18 months thru adult.
*Not for use in auto or bus transport.
